What with the original Burton Flight Attendant being such a hit with backcountry fiends, it was a smart move to make a splitboard version. The Burton Flight Attendant Split is for those who want to eat up all the natural hits they can find, no matter how far flung.
“As the name suggests, if you don’t leave the ground with this one then you’re doing it wrong”
Burton haven’t felt the need to change any of what makes the solid version of this board so popular. It’s got a setback camber profile and minimally tapered shape, so will see you right through the carves on hard park. Once you hit the powder, it’ll float with ease.
However, the Burton Flight Attendant didn’t earn its reputation purely in the turns. As the name suggests, if you don’t leave the ground with this one then you’re doing it wrong. Some splitboarders are all about the high-speed lines, and that’s fine, but this one definitely belongs in the air. It’s therefore been designed to pop to the moon when you want it to, sporting a carbon beam within the lightweight core that enhances what the strong camber bend already brings to the table.
