Review

With the Burton Social snowboard, the party never stops. This all-mountain freestyle board is both fun and forgiving. Burton gave this board a true-twin shape that will progress your riding on the mountain and in the park. Its flat top rocker gives it a loose and catch-free feel. For improved balance and stability Burton placed a flat spot between the bindings. During our test, we also tried a couple of jumps and we were surprised how poppy it is. However, its slow speed has some effect on how to approach a jump. This is definitely a board for slow cruising instead of hard charging. Overall the Burton Social is an easy board to ride that will appeal to a variety of riders at different levels. It’s a good snowboard for exploring the mountains and the park.
