Music fans reading this will have no doubt already been won over by its Led Zeppelin-inspired graphics, but the Burton Easy Livin is more than just a snazzy paint job. It’s the board of choice for Whitelines favourite and people’s champ Danny Davis, who uses this in the halfpipe, the powder and elsewhere.
The Burton Easy Livin is available in three different lengths, each with slight variations in outline shape. The 152cm is the shortest, made slightly stubbier for easy maneuverability in the park, while the 158cm version has slightly pointed ends for extra float in the powder. Meanwhile the 155cm version is more of an all-rounder, with an appropriately classic shape.
All three lengths now feature a classic camber bend, replacing the previous hybrid version. That makes a lot of sense for achieving DD’s trademark amplitude in the pipe, or tearing up groomers and shaped features in true Peace Park style. Its true twin shape and flex isn’t the best for deeper snow, but if you can handle it then it certainly leaves all backcountry freestyle doors open.
It’s also been tricked out with Burton’s top tech, such as the weight-reducing Squeezebox core and slightly protruding ‘Frostbite’ edges. The result is a high-end freestyle gun that’ll reward the deserving rider in spades.
