While a board like the Feather might want a stable relationship, the Burton Social is more adventurous and laid back. The added float and playful qualities of V-Rocker offer a lively ride for jumping, jibbing, and pow-slashing, while the true twin design is equally skilled no matter which way you point it. Overbite Frostbite edges let you sink your teeth into snow that's hard or soft for greater grip and control in any condition, while The Channel upgrade gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup with any binding out there. SHAPE: Twin Shape FLEX: Twin Flex CORE: Fly Core BASE: Extruded Base FIBERGLASS: Biax Fiberglass SIDEWALLS: Overbite Frostbite SHAPE Flying V: A blend of camber and rocker performance, Flying V offers the best of both worlds. Rocker overall, including between and outside your feet, enhances playfulness and float. Underneath your feet, subtle camber zones focus edge-control for crisp snap, added pop, and powerful turns. TERRAIN A groomer board can ride pow or park, but if you prefer one over the other, you should also consider characteristics like the board's Bend and Shape. PERSONALITY Doesn't matter if you've been riding one day or daily for 10 years, you either want a board that rips hard and fast, or prefer a board that's more about getting loose. WIDTH Not to be overlooked, boot size not only determines binding size, but should account for a board's width. A board that's too narrow will have your toes and heels dragging. Too wide and you'll have a hard time turning.
