This is one of three versions of the Burton Process that is available in the 2014/15. As well as the camber and off-axis variants, it’s also available with Flying V. Burton’s combo profile of choice features camber bends under the feet, with rocker sections in the middle and at each end.
The former give you grip when turning and carving (bolstered by the ‘Frostbite’ edges that protrude out slightly from between the feet), so as freestyle boards go this will tear up the mountain better than most. The rocker sections make pressing the nose and tail simpler than with a camber board, plus the one between the feet minimises the chances of edge-catches when on rails and boxes.
Its freestyle credentials don’t stop there; with its twin shape and flex, not to mention the weight reductions in the tips and core, this is designed to get thrown around every which way in the park. Meanwhile the sintered base ensures you’ll blast past the knuckle every time.
I’ve never gone for hybrid camber in the past, but Flying V does what it claims; there’s still plenty of pop to be had, and you never feel at risk of a hang-up when sliding on metal. This is definitely a good option if you want a solid park board that’s cheaper and more forgiving than the Custom, and larger-footed riders like myself will appreciate the extra width in the waist. The off-axis version is well worth a look too!” – Andrew Duthie
