Personally, I don't hate burton but I would like to know how many do. Thanks, and please keep it clean.

This topic seems suspiciously close to an attempt at trolling!!!
You don't want to get labeled as a "Troll" around here, trust me!

Ugh go play in traffic and if you survive go into your bathroom and drink all the chemicals under the sink. If you survive that dress up as a deer during hunting season and run around in the woods.

Burton has some sick gear. Gloves, jackets, pants, goggles, under layers, BOOTS, bindings, boards, socks. Etc. I rock a ton of burton gear. I'm probably done riding they're boards. You never know tho.


P.S. no snowboarder should hate burton, burton has done so much for this sport. They put a ton of money into the sport and have been extremely loyal in my opinion.

Jake Burton is awesome, and they have good softgoods.

I don't really like burton though. Everything is overpriced, and I see no advantage of having the 3 hole pattern, or now the channel system, other than them trying to make you buy their bindings if you want their boards. I can't hate them for it, it's not a bad business decision, just don't like it since every other manufacturer sticks with the standard.

Alot of binding company's are making they're bindings compatible with the burton channel setup. If the channel system is actually a better design I'd like to see burton share they're patent so other board company's could play with it. I think that'd be cool.

I have a Burton belt. It's ok. It keeps my pants up. Nobody's hating that.

I like burtons clothing. I have a hoodie and some shirts but I wouldnt buy one of their boards. Not really sure why, I have an irrational dislike for burton gear even though I've never ridden any. just never had the desire to buy any.

I know they are, but it costs them a bit extra to do it and it's a minor pain in the ass. You can adjust binding angles and stance width a bit faster, but really, who cares? I just don't see any real advantage, and to me it just looks weaker than a standard 4 hole plate.


Edit: I actually bought my little sister a burton board when she wanted to learn snowboarding, but only because it was an awesome deal and a good fit for her. I'm not saying they don't make good equipment, I'm just not a fan and would never buy anything new from them.

I'm just curious if it changes how the board will flex or feels. I have not had the opportunity to test one out.
