Even though their long-serving sticks like the Burton Custom and the Burton Feelgood remain some of the world’s most popular snowboards, the folk at the B never shy away from introducing new decks built with a particular purpose in mind. Case in point: the Burton Story Board.
“The Burton Story Board has earned a place in Burton’s premium pow-chasing line, the Family Tree”
The Burton Story Board women’s snowboard is, as is heavily hinted by the shape, designed for freeriding. The crescent tail is immediately obvious, even if the taper and setback camber are not. Plus it’s been emblazoned with the Family Tree logo, meaning it’s earned a place in Burton’s premium pow-chasing line.
It’s definitely its own animal, but the board in the men’s line that it most closely resembles is the Burton Flight Attendant. Both have that 10-milimetre taper, as well as ‘Balanced Freeride Geometry’. Simply put, the binding reference points and the sidecut of the board are set back in such a way that your feet sit in the middle of the sidecut. You still have more nose than tail, but when you’re not fully railing the turns this feels a lot more like a standard twin board.
