Keep your pimp hand strong in the park.
Back for another season of pissing off uptight soccer moms, the Burton Love Snowboard makes no apologies and allows no excuses. The soft flex helps you press boxes like an adult-film legend, while the traditional camber shape delivers ridiculous ollie power and edge control like no banana can. If you're having trouble clearing the lip, a quick glance down at your topsheet will give you some extra pop.
- Dual-Density Triax fiberglass offers a forgiving feel with tons of pop
- Camber construction offers consistent pop and edge grip through sketchy run-outs
- Sintered WFO base helps you fly through the flats and avoid knuckling jumps
- Infinite Ride breaks-in fiberglass at the factory for a dialed out-of-the-box ride that lasts season after season
- The Channel mounting system allows infinite stance options and effortless adjustment

Excuse me if this is a ridiculously stupid question, but if both the colors here are discontinued, what are the colors now? Oh, and this board isn't wide, is it? Because I feel a 13 boot would need a wide board.
The love is no longer in the line. Look to the Mr. Nice guy. It is a mid wide.

I'm looking to get a new board for next season. I'm still new to boarding, just one season under my belt. Would this be a good board for my level?

I'm 150 pounds and ride mainly park i have a 155 right now but want to drop smaller would a 152 with large bindings be alright?
Yes and yes. Dropping down to a 152 will work fine for park riding and with large bindings.
52 will be life changing...Binding size depends on shoe size. Generally a Medium will fit up to 9.5US. If you wear a size 11 or bigger...you're probably going to want a wide board.
Burton Love review
skis.com giving you a good review of the board
tried this board out for a day and didn't have anything I didn't like other than I'm normally a rocker rider so it felt a little weird to ride a normal camber board. Also I wasn't very stoked about the trac system when I landed a jump and my back binding moved back about 5 inches. Trac system will probably get better over time, but right now it's not very good.
I'm thinking about which size of Love to...
I'm thinking about which size of Love to buy. I'm an intermediate rider. 5,7feet, 143pounds (I used converter, I'm from europe). 175cm, 65kg.
My old board was Burton Air '08, 157 close to Custom, and I find it a wee bit too stiff. I think it was Flex 5. (Love is 4).
So I want now a board that is quite stiff as I've gotten so used to stiff boards, but playful enough to pull some manuals & butters. Air is simply a BIT too stiff-long, nose rolls etc. require too much strength.
Would you choose Love 155 or 152?
It would depend on your main riding style. You could do fine on either board at your weight though. If you want something stiff then a custom x or t7 will be more you're thing (they are stiffer so you may size down a bit in either of those), but if you're into the Love then 155 if you're looking for max stiffness. The 152 will translate into a nice all around park board while the 155 will maintain the rigidity to make some nice turns on steeps.
Basically I'd like my next board to have a bit more "laid back" feeling than my old Air 157.
But still be able to go fast when feeling like it.
I'd like to be able to pull some butters & manuals as they were really consuming to muscles with Air 157. I also do ride Park quite a lot, but mostly boxes, small-medium airs. Not so much rails.
Is the stiffness difference easily notable between Custom and Love? Sounds like maybe Love 155 could be the right one for me if it's laid back enough compared to Custom/Air.

Is this board good for a person that do not have a lot of experience?
It is kind of stiff out of the box, but it softens up after a bit. If you are just starting, check out the Hero, it is a great soft flexing board and is really fun. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-hero-restricted-snowboard
I would personally say this is more an intermediate to expert board. For a beginner you'll want a soft flexing board or possibly something that allows for easy turning like a v-rocker, banana, low-rise, depending on which brand. If you're determined to stick with Burton I agree with Lyman on the hero, but also maybe the blunt or a nug if you can get a hold of one.

Im looking to ride alot of park trees and all mountain. I weigh 195lbs and am 6'1". Deciding between the 155 and the 158. Any thoughts.
I would go with the 158, you will be more satisfied with the performance of that size over the 155 especially in the trees and deep snow.

would this board be good for someone who loves pow but is just gettin into the park and will get better?
Yeah this is a good park board. It is geared towards park but isn't a complete noodle so it holds up well at high speeds whether that's on groomers or rolling into a big kicker. Size down a bit from your normal size board (say to a 155 from a 160 for example) and rip it. Don't be afraid to size down. I was when I went from a 162 all mtn to a 156 park board. Keep a little extra length if you want to ride all mountain but don't go too long or it will make spins and rails tougher.
Pickles wish they could slide this love
I came from the world of the B Charger, to the B Dragon and after having that stolen to the B Fix; all while riding any board I could inbetween. After riding the Pickle, then buying this hot box bix I'll never ride the Pickle again.
This board has sick graphics, killer control, amazing flex and just enough stiffness to handle any 50 footer.
Method on the Burton Love Spring Jumping Utah, Back country 2010
The Love is an amazing all around, do everything, go anywhere park board. Burton advertise it as a park/ freestyle board, but once you ride it you'll know that you can take it everywhere on the mountain. With an amazing shape with a nose and tail that will keep you up in the powder. Also the camber makes for pop and landing gear that is unmistakable.
The Love preforms extremely well on jump, it's super stable on the in run, and the right amount of stiff on the landing. With all of this amazing all mountain, and jumping characteristics you need to know that is still kills in on rails and boxes jut take a look a Keegan Valaika and the moves he pull off on this board.
