Been riding for years, next to music, snowboarding is probably the one thing I'm best at. Way back in the day used to ride for Lib Tech (halfpipe and GS, using a Matt Cummins). These days I ride a Burton Custom 164:
I remember hearing about this a while ago on this forum and being suitably impressed back then! Great stuff! Always wanted to try out a LibTech board (intrigued by Magne-Traction), but was never in a resort where I could try them out. Say what you like about Burton dominating the market, at least the dealers let you try them out on the slopes here.
I used to ride a Custom 156 - think it was one of the first seasons to have those springy carbon beams inside them - and it looked way cool...
Lovely board, really dependable and fast.
After that, a Burton Seven 158 which was built like a tank and suffered loads of abuse and still rode rock solid.
And now on my current ride, Burton Vapor 157 with CO2 bindings which, compared to the Seven, was as if the board disappeared and I was just tearing down the mountain in my boots. Amazingly light and ultra fast response, but jittery at high speed, no getting around it.
