A board for the next generation.
Burton went to their up-and-coming riders like Jack Mitrani and Brandan Keenan to give the Farm Snowboard a unique ride and feel that slays terrain parks with new-school ease. The combination of a mid-wide shape, forgiving flex, and a negative core profile creates a board that jibs like butter and still has enough clout for big hits and powder shots. A Sintered Vision base gives you the speed to clear a 50-foot table, and 10:45 sidewalls provide extra durability if you come up short on a rail transfer. Burton added Pro-Tip construction for reduced swing weight and Infinite Ride construction to keep the Farm going strong for years. *We have no control over which color you receive, but they all rock. - Fall 2008.

Hi I wear a Size 11 boot. I have a Burton Bullet Wide 160, and I want to get something smaller. I am 5'9-10 and 145 lbs. Is this board fine for me? Are my feet too big? Looking for an all mountain to freestyle board. Hence I already have my free ride board (Burton bullet wide 160) Thanks!
Nope, you'll be good... Its a mid-wide waist width and with an 11 there is no need for a wide!
This board is actually built around 10.5 and 11.

im 5'11" 170, im looking for a good park board that is reliable on tougher terrain and stable at high speeds, should i get the 150 or 154?
This board will work awesome... I would handle the 154 if I were you... the 150 will be too tiny. It would be fun to jib with, but not so fun when trying to jump (especially at quicker speeds)

I"ll be a recreational snowboarder and want your opinion on this board for me. Also what would be a good binding to go with it. i wear a size 12 and am about 180 pounds.
The board is an intermediate to advanced board that you can ride anywhere... see my below comment to 'mapa729'
I would drop into something with at least a medium glass polycarbonate construction... straight polycarb will flex too much for you. Make sure you get size Large for those big feet!
Check out this mission, or if you can splurge, the cartel.

Hey- I like this board, it looks way steezy... but I'm wondering how it does outside of the terrain park too. I like to shred the mountain, tree ride, and bomb steep slopes, how does it handle there?
It is an all-mountain freestyle board... Twin shape but a directional flex (tail is stiffer than the nose) so it will do well and and everywhere.
When dropping into powder or trees (especially if its wicked deep) you may want to drop your stance back towards the tail a bit... but not 100% necessary
It will hold solid at high speeds and let you hit every jersey booter on the mountain!
plus, you get a sick board with a mikey welsh graphic... the former bassist for the band weezer!
Does anyone know if this board is a...
Does anyone know if this board is a traditional camber or reverse camber? Also is it a twin tip? Thanks.
Twin tip shape, direction flex (means the tail is a little stiffer than the nose) with regular camber!

Hey i wear about a 9. Do you think I would have trouble with this board because its a mid wide?
you will be fine with size 9's
yeah, you'll be fine... In my personal opinion, the benefits of a lil' wider waist width is stability!
The only time time a wider waist width is no fun is if you have a really small foot -- say size 7 -- It would be challenging to get a mid-wide, or a wide, to go from edge to edge. The 157 Joystick is about a 252 ww... to compare a normal waist width burton custom would be about 249... so, not a huge difference but enough that someone that doesn't want to quite go to a wide can handle it.
You should have no problem as well, with a 9, getting it from edge to edge. (you just won't have to worry about toe-heel drag at all where as a 13 would)

would this board work for someone with a size 12-13 boot?
It's a Burton Mid-Wide which is built around about a 10.5 foot... You will be fine with a 12 ... If you are a true thirteen, you may want to find something similar but in a wide version.

Hey I'm 6'2 and weigh about 195. I've been outta the game for a while but I'd consider myself advanced. I'm debating on getting the 161 or 164...I like small boards but I don't know if the 161 will float me in powder. What do you guys think?
I think you would be just fine, you are only talking a difference of 3 cm.
Great board for what you pay for. I think it's a good all around deal, good if you like a little bit of everything but aren't quite ready to go pro in any of those fields.
i was only able to take mine out a few times this past year, we'll see how more abuse fairs it....

I got this board half-way through the season and and was super surprised how good the board was...its nice and stable on landings and is super predictable. The board is good and flexible for jibbing but still has a surprising amount of pop! No one will have a board that looks anything like it either...and that is always a plus!
How well does this board ride, its...
How well does this board ride, its flexibility, and pop? Like would this be a board well worth it. and what size should i get because im 180lbs, 5'8 1/2".
it will be worth it if you like to do park and dont venture into advance runs that much...and since this a pretty park/freestyle board, a 150 be optimal for freestyle...a 157 be good if you ride advanced mountian runs as much, or almost as much, as you ride park...and a 154 be good if you ride mostly park but not exlcusivly, it be more versatle
