Burton Custom: Best Mens’ Snowboards
Rick bought his Burton Custom snowboard on proform as a do-everything snowboard and used it all season for teaching and general riding. It’s a great all-mountain snowboard for beginners through advanced riders. It is soft enough to butter and jib, but still turns quickly and holds an edge well. It’s very easy to turn, which makes it good for beginners and fun on groomed runs. The Custom has a directional shape, making the turn shape smooth throughout, naturally giving turns a nice “c” shape.
This is a great snowboard if you want one board that can do everything on the mountain. The Burton Custom is soft and forgiving enough so beginners can learn on it–but versatile enough that beginners won’t need to upgrade to a better snowboard as their skills progress. The Burton Custom is a safe choice if you are looking for versatile snowboard or just starting out in the sport.
It comes in both camber and flying V (rocker/camber mix). For a better carving board once you learn the basics, get the cambered version. For a super easy learning experience and a fun, playful board once you learn, get the Flying V version. See the video review below for more info.

What size snowboard to buy?
Select the snowboard size based on your weight according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you are between sizes, going with the smaller size can be easier to learn on. Snowboarders can often ride more than one size of the same snowboard.
The Burton Custom comes with the Channel for mounting bindings. The Channel allows the rider to slide the bindings along a center groove for more stance options. You need to have Burton Channel compatible binding, EST, or special Channel binding discs to work with the Channel.
