The Burton Family Tree Tough Cat is a popular all-mountain board for the all-around rider. In order to ride it comfortably, you need skills. And with intermediate skills you can even improve yourself with this board. The Burton Family Tree Tough Cat may be very forgiving but is also less playful. This Burton board is set for the more serious snowboarding. Its lightweight carbon backbone adds resilience to the full length of the board, while its flex provides a splendid response for cruising through powder. In case you are in the size 10.5 range you will most likely prefer the Burton Flight Attendant.
