So as all this new tech gets puked at us this year, the trend I'm seeing is all taking the weigh distribution of a traditionally cambered board that goes to the contact points and moving those contact points and flex patterns in towards the feet. Burton is dropping EST optimized boots on us and the basic premise of this is to eliminate the forward ramp of the boot so instead of your weight being distributed on the balls of your feet naturally, it allows you to stand flat footed....think skate shoe, so more feel for your board. Definitely something for the advanced freestyler, not the beginner.
