Scratch the surface of what's possible.
Jesse Burtner does a lot of things on his snowboard that most people would never even think of, let alone believe was possible. That's why he needs a board that's versatile enough to handle all of his unpredictable journeys and wild ideas. The Lib Tech Burtner's Box Scratcher BTX Snowboard is a freestyle jibbing machine with a soft enough flex to fulfill all your jibbing and buttering desires, yet it's still responsive enough to shred all over the mountain and boost off of booters.
Featuring a mellow version of Banana Technology, the Box Scratcher has rocker in the middle with just slightly cambered sections extending from the bindings towards the tip and tail for a stable, playful feel. Magne-Traction provides edge hold on icy slopes so you can still tear it up in the park while other kids are sliding out on their butts left and right, and Power Transfer internal sidewalls give you greater heel-to-toe response for hard, fast carves that other park boards only dream of.
The Power A core delivers lightweight pop using sustainably-harvested wood, and a combination of biax and triax glass maintains the perfect balance between flexible and responsive. It also has a durable sintered base and the edges come pre-beveled so you can start sliding kink rails the moment you take this thing out of the plastic.

Hi. I'm 5'8'' and 180lbs. Would 147 be too short for me? Riding both in and outside the park.
Board size is mostly a matter of personal preference, some people like short boards, some like longer ones. Riding smaller boards my only concern is boots not fitting well on the board. This has a waist width of 251mm I would say as long as your boots are size 9.5 or smaller and you wear medium size bindings you wont have a problem with boot overhang. My personal preference is that short boards belong in the park. Keep in mind that the shorter your board is the closer the contact points will be so if you like to bomb it you wont have as stable of a base that with a longer board. Should be super fun for jibbing though.
I'm about your size and I ride between a 151 and a 154 for my park boards. That's plenty short enough for jibbing, but still long enough to rip groomers and powder with. Anything shorter will be rideable, just not as stable or versatile.
