Raise your Fish in the air and yell.
You don't have to be an activist to ride a Burton Fish Snowboard, but it helps to have militant beliefs when it comes to attacking huge pow days. The Fish gives you tons of float in the deep stuff without the ridiculous length of a big gun, which means it's crazy maneuverable in the tight trees.
- Springloaded S-Rocker features an early-rise tip for tons of flotation with camber between the bindings for added pop and enhanced edge control
- Dualzone EGD places the wood perpendicularly along the toe and heel edges in two different zones to optimize edge control
- Super Fly II core strategically places stronger, lighter wood in specific areas of the core to provide strength and pop
- The Channel allows the rider to micro-adjust his or her stance over a greater length and an infinite range
- Pro Tip reduces weight at the tip and tail for less swing weight

This is a great board for when the deep stuff requires a snorkel. I have used it 10+ times and haven't been let down yet. The nose stays up even when it's chest deep and on groomers it turns pretty well. Of course you sacrifice a bit of maneuverability with the swallow tail but it is worth it. If you are looking for the best in-bounds powder board, this is your guy.
Which bindings should I get with this...
Which bindings should I get with this board? Malavitas? Prophecy? ReFlex or EST?
Union Forces all the way!
The Mala Vitas are great , the mission are truly underrated as well.
Check out the Prophecy. Comes in Re:flex with a response of a 6 and has a dual component base plate for more board feel underfoot. Add a react strap and a lightweight mesh high-back that conforms to your boot.

Utah powder is where it's at, so I won't go too far into arguing about the best place to find it in Colorado, but the comments he made about the Fish seem pretty good. However I OWN one, don't just demo it. I ride it everywhere and on all days. Its tight turning radius (smears turns a bit, but carves remarkably for what it is) is amazing in the trees. In fact, I even ride this board on groomer days. It is simply the fastest snowboard I own, and I've ridden my share of Arbor, LibTech, Rossi and Salomon boards.
The board, to me, is a quiver killer. The ONLY thing I don't recommend is switch. As the Coloradoan mentioned, it's best done in a pinch. So for you park rats, not a good choice, but this board has SO much pop it's unreal, and it manuals like you wouldn't believe....flex for days.
I am selling all my other boards because they just aren't fun anymore. The Banana Hammock was my last powder board and it does not come close. It's way too one-sided and honestly it has a good bit of nosedive in the steeps. The fish never seems to sink.
I ride a 158, 6.1' and 185 lbs. Take one of these bastards on a mogul run and turn some heads :)
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Good Board , I liked it in the Powder and it was still stable on the hard pack too. Over All very fun , great Powder Board but not something you could ride ever day.
