Board: Burton Dumptruck
Camber Option: Directional camber. A set back traditional camber with rocker in the nose.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 195lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: A early morning mix of sun, clouds, and a snow storm. Visibility was low to average and there was at least 10 inches of fresh snow all over the place.
Flex: Stiff. This board is a plank. It’s way past middle of the road and borders more on being a hardcore freeride plank. There is next to no torsional flex which really makes this board a bear to drive.
Stability: Well with this board being so stiff it’s very stable. You’ll never notice any chatter in that rocker in the nose and this board will plow through anything in its path.
Ollies/Pop: For being rear foot camber this board didn’t have as much pop as other decks I’ve ridden with it. You do have to load it up and even then you don’t get a lot of snap out of it.
Butterability: God this board was a chore to butter with. Speed is your friend but even still be prepared to push into this board twice as hard as you think.
Carving: The big thing with this board is that it drives off that back foot where the camber is and as such you can do tight quick cut back carves but it really shines doing long drawn out turns. The kind that take you from one side of the trail to the other.
Rider in Mind: Someone that wants to charge hard and wants a stiff board.
Personal Thoughts: God this board was a plank. There is next to no torsional flex and that makes it such a bitch to turn. It just wants to go straight and run over everything in its path. In tight trees you end up working twice as hard as you maneuver. This board is for hauling ass and spraying hard.
