Board: Burton Working Stiff
Camber Option: Directional Camber
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 188lbs
Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Puking snow, around a foot of fresh, mild winds, warmer temps, and frozen death chunder underneath the fresh snow.
Flex: This has one of those reverse directional flexes giving it a stiffer nose to a softer tail. The overall flex is around the middle of the road leaning more towards the softer side. The torsional flex is there but not abundant which aids this board in flexing from the middle and driving itself.
Stability: For having a reverse directional flex you would think that the tail would cause the board to get bucked around, that is not the case. It’s stable and smooth yet still lively. It busts through chunder and plows through fresh powder with ease. At no point did I feel that this deck was chattery.
Ollies/Pop: The camber is easy to load up and doesn’t fight you but has a solid rebound. With having a back foot dominate camber helps in getting snap off natural features.
Butterability: As the nose is stiffer you can press into it aggressively when doing pow butters. My suggestion go faster than you think.
Carving: It turns that’s for sure. You can press the back foot camber in and drive this board through a turn with ease.
Rider in Mind: Powder fiend that wants a little camber in their life.
Personal Thoughts: With the first slash I knew this board was going to plow through snow. I rode around that day slashing everywhere I could and getting face shots. For being a cambered powder board I didn’t get leg fatigue which is a testament to how it’s built. It was nice knowing that I could snap off any feature if I wanted to.
