Relax while you ride with a laidback feel that's all about catch-free stability.
Laid-back and relaxed, the Burton Social is dialed in for carefree adventure. The stable and forgiving qualities of Flat Top create a playful and catch-free ride for cruising around and learning tricks. Its true twin design and low-maintance yet fast sintered base are skilled and swift in all directions. Overbite Frostbite Edges act like all-wheel drive, chomping into variable snow for greater grip and control in any condition. The upgrade to Filet-O-Flex creates a super soft board that maintains maximum stability, durability, and control. The Channel mounting system gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup with any binding out there (not just Burton's).
A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you'd expect from rocker. Shape: Twin Shape
Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that's equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it. Flex: Twin Flex
The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch. Core:
FSC Certified Super Fly 800G Core
Lightened up and loaded with pop, this vertical sandwich of hard and soft woods saves weight and improves snap and response. Further optimized for float in our freeride focused boards, and strength in our park-focused boards.
The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
Durable and highly porous, get added durability and superior wax absorption for greater overall glide. Fiberglass: Biax Fiberglass
Features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and forgiving, park-friendly feel. Sidewalls: Overbite Frostbite Edges
This evolution in edge tech gives you more fang with less bang by giving you twice the amount of Frostbite. It's a subtle tweak, but the result is a huge increase in grip on hard, icy conditions while remaining smooth and catch-free. Exclusive to the Deja Vu Flying V and Social. Design features:
With an overall easier feel, NEW Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside your feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.
NEW In-Mold Filet-O-Flex
Some riders want a more flexible board without sacrificing performance. NEW Filet-O-Flex solves that challenge with ultra-thin profiling that creates soft boards that rip with maximum stability, durability, and grip. An additional benefit is subtle suspension and underfoot padding.
This exaggerated tip and tail scooping turns up the edges for a looser, more forgiving feel that adds catch-free fun when riding everything from a knee-high box to neck-deep pow.
A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable - The Channel gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's). In fact, we trust it so much that all boards with The Channel are backed by a 3-year warranty.
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.
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.
