Is this a reliable board for the mountians...
Is this a reliable board for the mountians and the parks? Is it durable? Is it worth buying? can it be fixed if broken?
Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes.
Great board for the mountain and parks. Geared slightly more towards the park, but also made for anything anywhere on the mountain. As for durability, it's just like any other snowboard. If you treat it well, keep in waxed and take care of it, it's going to take care of you.
I would definitely say it's worth buying if you like the looks of it and can afford it. It's a great price at 40% off and Burton makes top of the line equipment.
If it breaks, which it never should under normal riding conditions, don't even worry about fixing it. If there is any defect or malfunction with the board backcountry will take it back for a full refund. You can simply order another one why you're at it and they'll credit your account when they receive your old board. They have great customer service. You can't go wrong buying from here.
I'd agree completely with Fur - this board is really friggin' sturdy. I rode it for two years and the most damage it's received are some scratches on the bottom (easily waxed out) and some minor top sheet scratches. Personally, I found the board a bit stiff for park, but it def works anywhere on the mtn.
Burton Deuce Snowboard 2009
My equipment: Burton Deuce 2009 (158 wide) with Moto Snowboards and Mission Bindings for a total of $295!!
I have boot size 12 feet and weigh 175, so with that kind of deal, I couldn't really complain much about my first board setup.
The only bad thing about this board is the top sheet scratches off REALLY easily. It's only superficial, but you can kiss those sweet graphics goodbye if you're not careful.
GOOD: bi directional and pretty easy to ride to switch, altho the only thing I have to compare to are beginner boards from rental shops. I took it to the park as well and it was flexible. great progression board.
BAD: a little heavier and like i said, the top sheet scratches off so easily.
Good board, but very flexible
Great beginner board. But, it does have quite a bit of flex. I am 185lbs and this thing was seriously flexing under my feet. Ordered the board and wished for the red one, but got the green...which still looks pretty nice. Some of the graphics don't have any color, which shows off the grain of the wood underneath. Turns easily. Hope it grows with me.
Worth the money...not paying retail price
This too is my first board, combined it with burton customs. I have been able to go twice with it snowboarding. The first time I thought it was too good to be true. It was very easy to control and it did what I wanted it to do. The second time around confirmed how I felt about this board. Very good board. My only problem is that after the second time the board got some scratches and nicks. But I guess that's going to happen with use. Also only paid half price buying from backcountry.com
A must buy for progressing riders
This is the first board I have ever bought. I couldnt find many reviews on it when I was researching it but I bought it anyway based on stats. It is great at manuevering in the trees and has some good pop for jumps and terrain parks. I highly recommend for the rider that has the basics down and wants to progress.
What is the difference between freestyle...
What is the difference between freestyle and freeride..? Is longer gap between the bindings on freestyle? i'm looking for a freestyle board with long gap between the bindings.. if you know what i mean? i'm 175 cm and weight 68 kg.. what size do i need if i'm going to have a freestyle board, is it 153-155?
freestlye boards are for riders who basically bring the park idea to the whole mountain, if you see anything that can even be kinda considered a jump, u session it all day and find ways to do something sick off of it, even tho ur not in a park doesnt mean you have to be tied to the ground...freeride boards are for the powder hounds who search for big lines and dont spend much time elsewhere, they need a stiff board thats shaped for powder because when ur on the huge lines, you need something more supportive than a freestlye board...freeride boards are hard to ride and will kick your butt up and down the mountain if you dont put your heart and soul into every turn, freestyle boards are much more common and easy to ride and manuvuer, but arent as good in pow or huge lines...and ive answered one of ur questions before, just go EST dude, it has the most stance options of any boards ever, thats what ur lookin for
The way I look at it is in 3 areas park freestyle freeride. So freestyle is a mix of the two. Freeride is carving hard at high speeds. So Freestyle is just simply put as all mountain. And Cyrus is right about everything he said, i'm just trying to give another option.
This is my first non rental board. I havn't used it yet but i've straped it on a few times. Its a little stiff but it still has a good pop. Also the graphic a sweet, they look a lot better in person. If you want an intermediat board with out the dent in your wallet, it won't let you down.
I'm a beginner/intermediate snowboarder...
I'm a beginner/intermediate snowboarder and I'm looking for a good transitional board that is forgiving on the rails and is forgving sticking new tricks. Is this a good board for that, and are there any other boards for this purpose? also, how does this compare with the Burton Air?
this board's your stick, man. I'd definitely recommend it
I'm trying to buy this board for my...
I'm trying to buy this board for my boyfriend's birthday... I'm a skier and have no clue about lengths for snowboards... any help?
height, weight and riding style are factors. the bigger and heavier someone is the larger the board. Im 6'0 175 and I like to do alot of freestle, I prefer a 155cm board. my roommate is 6'2 215 and is all mountain and he rides a 160cm. so his dimensions and riding style are skill are what will determine the proper size boardSince you probably aren't going to be able to find out much information from him since it's for his birthday, I would click on the size chart up above, find his weight and then you'll know what size range to pick from. Freestyle means he would hit the terrain park more often, freeride means he would like to fly down the mountain on powder days. If he likes both, just go with something in the middle.
