Help your future ripper get on the right track.
- A centered stance lets your kid ride both ways until he knows whether he�s goofy or regular
- Burton's Small Fly core provides the forgiving flex that often makes the difference between a smooth turn and a crash
- A hard Lightspeed Vision base holds up to seasons of abuse and is easy to maintain
- The two smallest sizes (90cm and 100cm) come with grippy footpads and an attachment point for a Riglet so you can tow junior around till he�s comfortable with bindings
- The Riglet (a self-recoiling tow rope) is sold separately

My son is 53 inches tall and weighs 60 pounds. He's 10 years old and an intermediate boarder. what size do you recommend?
I would go with the 125cm or 130. You want you son to ride the board for at least 2 seasons, so up the size just a bit. These boards are great for kids. both of you will be very happy.
Burton Chopper Best board yet!
This board is sick all the decals and everything about it is great definetly looks 2x as better then it does in the picture and it is very forgiving and just flat out sickk.Definetly the right one for the little boys who arent any bigger than 5 foot
Best boards on the market for kids to learn on.
Two of my kids have 2010 Choppers, sizes 100 & 110. Been teaching them how to snowboard for the last couple of years on older Choppers (never have put them on skis). The 2010 models, though a size-up for each of the kids, are that much easier of boards for them to learn on. 2010s have a softer flex than the older Choppers & they have beveled edge tune (a.k.a. turned up side edges) that reduces toe-side or heal-side hang-ups for faster learning and more fun.
The youngest is doing a better job on his Chopper 2010 slip sliding & carving down the hill toe-side. Plus, I dont worry as much about him catching a downhill edge on the beveled edges.
This season, the older kid figured out how to link turns & control speed on his prior Chopper but the 2010s softer flex and beveled edges makes it much easier for him to transition more smoothly edge to edge despite riding a longer board. He is even hitting boxes & the turned up beveled edges seem to help avoid biting in on the box & slamming him.
The only suggestion I would have to make the Chopper models better would be to add the V-Rocker (camber nose - reverse camber mid - camber tail) to these type of learn to ride boards. Hopefully that will be added on future Chopper models when it is time to move up board sizes for the kids.
this board is awesome for your lil' rippers, good flex, easy to turn and fast. the base hold up to rails and boxes. the edge is only just a tiny bit grippy for most young boarders so if you how to detune, do it a tiny bit to prevent knee carnage and complaining.
2 1/2 yr old on Burton Chopper
My son is almost 3 and was able to ride this board with no problems. The design of the board is great. He never caught an edge, not once and he could have many times. Overall great board!!!! I also purchased the Riglet. The Riglet bolts to the front of the board and allows you to pull your son/daughter around without having them unbuckle. This made it really to ease my son into riding. I could pull him up the hill and let him ripe, with out going on a lift. We did go up the lift once, a little nerve racking with a 2 1/2 year old but he loved it and barreled back down the hill!!!
Do kids (13 year olds) ever buy smaller...
Do kids (13 year olds) ever buy smaller boards so that they can do tricks easier? Will a board break if they get a 110 size for 40-60 lbs. when they are actually 105 lbs?
It's ok to have kids on smaller boards so that they gain mobility for learning tricks. However, a board that board may be too small, meaning too squirrelly. Basically, it will make it harder because your child will not have any stability.
you can go a lil' smaller but the Burton Boards are so easy to ride because of the rockered / convex base that there is no need to go smaller.
And, you will not have to worry about it breaking (plus it comes with a warranty)
The other two answerers pretty much said it, I just wanted to add something about boards breaking. One time I took out one of my old burton boards that was a good 20 or so centimeters short and I was waaaaay out of the weight range and I actually tried to break it by doing really leaned back tail presses and stuff and I couldn't snap the thing. Most boards are a lot tougher than they seem.
k dude your kid is thirteen and he is ridin a 110 my sister thats five and she rides a 105 and she one of the shortest kids in her class and that is a little small for her and im eleven and i ride a 126 and i can do three sixties on that thing and stuff like that and its small for me and im four foot three and ive ridin one thats a 110 and i could not ride it it was to small and im eleven your kids thirteen try like a 120 or a 130 that will be alot better
Great first board
I bought this board for my 7-year old son last winter. It's a great beginning board--he went from the learning hill at the start of the season to doing his first black diamond at the end. I got him bigger boots and he's still using the same board this season.

How much does the little fella weigh? Use this as a base-line.

Depends on how much he weighs. The more he weights, the larger board he'll need. Also, at this age he's probably growing a lot, so it might not be a bad idea to get a larger board that he'll be able to grow into over the next 1-2 seasons.
my son is a little over 3. is this old...
my son is a little over 3. is this old enough to snowboard?
Depends on your kid. I would say that it is possible that he is, but most likely that he isn't. I've found that it is very usual that kids under 5 years don't have the capabilities that are needed in snowboarding. They cannot control their bodies enough. Although there are exeptions, but they are very rare. I would take my own son snowboarding in the age of 6, he has been skiing though already when he was 4. But I have been teaching snowboarding to kids and I feel bad when they get frustrated and some of them never wants to try again. So I wouldn't try too early with my own son.
Write your question here...If I buy a 90...
Write your question here...If I buy a 90 for my boy, would I be able to put bindings on the board?
yes, you will need to buy specific kid's bindings, matched to whatever size boot he has. I've seen kids bindings from all the bigger companies...Burton, salomon, K2, Ride. etc...
I bought the 90cm for my son, who is 2.5 years old right now ... having not used it, all I can say at this point is that it's tiny and cute. I imagine we'll tow him around the backyard with it this winter. It does come with Burton's Learn To Ride lift ticket & lesson deal. I'll update this review after we get a chance to use it.
