You're already on probation for tagging the library; better stick with the board.
Nobody’s whupping your ass or sending you to bed without your dinner because you took a hacksaw to your board—in fact, the Burton Restricted Ration Snowboard was made to showcase your creativity. The board’s nose and tail feature Clip Tips that can be trimmed to whatever shapes strike your fancy (Burton recommends cutting no more than four inches off each end), and the neutral topsheet is awaiting your touch with stickers or paint markers. The Ration’s a real Picasso in the park, too—the board’s true twin shape, buttery flex, and Rail-Ready tune help you create a collage of destruction. The traditional camber profile locks in when spinning onto rails and offers predictable pop off jumps.
- Symmetrical twin shape and twin flex allow a balanced ride that easily accommodates riding switch
- Rail-Ready edge tune is slightly beveled for easy sliding yet still grips when you’re slashing and jumping
- Flat Kicks shape at the tip and tail presses like a platter, perfect for nailing butters, bonks, presses, and rails
- Durable extruded base is easy to fix when you run off the rail into the parking lot
- Includes the Go Snowboarding package, with a free LTR lesson and lift ticket at selected resorts
- Downloadable Clip Tip patterns available at Burton.com for the artistically challenged

This board is really fun and buttery. make no mistake, its a jib board only. The base is tough but really slow. I wax and maintain it but it is slow. other then that, the pop is great, the flex is fun, the one colour topsheet is cool. for the price its really good.
is this a good board for everything?

This board is designed to live in the park. if you like a buttery board you can ride this anywhere.

So I am 6 ft and 215 I like to just miss around and I'm not the best but I want to be able to jump and do rails and carve is this a good board for me?
This board will kill it in the park but keep it "Restricted" there. this board will get you around on the mountain but, with the beveled edges for rail riding it will make carving a little hard.

I've asked dogfunk staff questions about this board but I want an answer from someone who actually rides it, I bought a 148, I'm 5'7" and weigh 130ish, I've rode 148's before, easily can press em out, but I'm just wondering about the flex on this board, is it playful or just enough to have noticeable presses? It said 3 of 10 on the scale, so I'm expecting a little playful however it's camber so who knows, I'm used to rocker boards.
Burton Ration Review
A review from ski's.com
other than not being able to choose your colors, this board is pretty sick. You can put whatever stickers you want and you don't cover up graphics.
Do you ship to Australia?
Do you ship to Australia?
No they don't. Sorry about that.
The board broke on the first day i rode it. I had a lot of fun with it before it broke though, its quite flexy, and fun to press with. I had no edge control though. If you go hard in the paint dont buy this board. IT IS NOT A STRONG BOARD. oh and im not a fat ass either.
Will a jigsaw cut through the tip and tail...
Will a jigsaw cut through the tip and tail smootly cuz i dont want the board to look weerd
Jigsaw would work if you didn't have a band saw.
Why do you need to cut the tip and tail?
Price is only point
The price is low and affordable, but the boards proformance isent, the only thing it has going for it is Pop and flex, but its very unsteady going down mountains and jumps, this is how i feel atleast.

Hi I'm 6 feet and 190 pounds. Looking for something that is mainly park (rails) but also want something with a very fast base and not too much flex so I can do rails without having to be afraid of snapping my board. I was looking at some nitro boards (prime or Bryan Fox pro series) help me out please!
This deck is not for you at all. I would check out the Forum destroyer or even the conflict. Both of those decks are durable and hold an edge at top speeds really well, they also can handle rails no problem. http://www.dogfunk.com/forum-destroyer-snowboard and http://www.dogfunk.com/forum-conflict-snowbaord

hey im 5'9 110 and and where a 12. i love rails park and all jumps i ride grommers so what board would be the best for me
The ration is great jib board for the street. Since you like to jump in the park, I would upgrade to the Love or the process. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-process-v-rocker-snowboard
CAPiTA Horrorscope FK Wide is for you! I wear a size 12 and I ride the 155 Wide Horrorscope and I absolutely love it! Its definitely a soft jib board, but I use it for riding all over my mountain! Its the best board I've ever owned!

I'm 5'6''-ish and 140-ish and i want a park board that can still handle some back country when i want a change of pace. I'm looking for a board $350 or under. Any suggestions?
I think you would find exactly what your looking for in the Rome SDS Garage Rocker 154cm. The best thing about the rocker technology is that it was made for making it easier to do butter tricks and manuels and all that jazz. However with that arch in the middle of the board, the nose stays above the powder without you working your legs by putting all your weight on the back foot.
You should check out the Forum Scallywag; http://www.dogfunk.com/forum-scallywag-snowboard This board is awesome. It is a great park board but will still hang in the backcountry. It comes in 3 sizes, a 151, 155, and 158. The 151 is your size for sure. This board has reverse camber tech, it is called chillydog but it also has "pop" This is a thicker section of the board right outside the bindings that will still allow you to pop higher and better off of rails and boxes.

do you have to shape the tips or would the board be fine as is
No not all, I didn't touch my board and I love it. It is a great deck. Cut it or keep it as is, you'll be stoked.
Also i was wondering what size i should...
Also i was wondering what size i should get. The last board i had was a 133 stairmaster mini but i was too big for it last season. i just got enough money to buy a board and i want this one. im around 5'3 and 105-110 pounds. i ride groomers just for fun, and am in the park a good amount, but if there is a nice day for it day im deff in the woods. what size should i get?
You can get the 139 or the 144 in this deck. The board is made to be a park board, perfect for jibbing and buttering. either board will be fine for you. It depends on how much you think you will grow in the next season. If you think you will grow a lot (by grow I mean gain weight), get the 144.
What do you use to cut the tip and tail?...
What do you use to cut the tip and tail? How do you cut it accuratly and cleanly?
I would use a jig saw for ease and precision. Make sure you don't go more than 4 inches into the board.
i am 5,5 120 punds what size do you think...
i am 5,5 120 punds what size do you think i should get? i ride mostly rails
The 144 or the 148. If you really are straight rails then you most likely go through a couple boards a year and you are probably not too worried about growing into the deck. Run the 144.
id go 144 for sure if you mostly jib
Shape it how you like it
The Ration is a whole new ball game, for the snowboard world. The tip and tail of this board have no wood in them and no wrap around edge. It is designed such that you can cut the tip and tail into customer shapes. Make your board old school or future school, to your heart's delight. I made one look kind of like Travis Parker's old Calita pro board. Double tips on both sides.
Flex wise, I would call this a medium flex. It can press, but isn't a noodle.
