I just returned from my first day on my new Burton Custom X. To give a little background, this is my second season on a snowboard. I have a custom 158 wide for regular use and a custom 167 wide for powder. I consider myself an intermediate level rider. After reading many reviews, I was uncertain if i was ready for this board. Many go on about how it is unforgiving and you should be an advanced level rider to strap it on. I pulled the trigger anyway and i am glad i did! No doubt, this board is far more responsive and faster than my other boards. If the Custom is the pick up truck of the Burton line-up, the Custom X is a Ferrari. After the first run, i instantly felt like a better rider. My confidence went through the roof. Don,t be intimidated. If you can link turns, and like to carve down the mountain, buy this board! It turns on a dime, and the edge holds on any surface at any speed. It slices through the late afternoon chop like a Samurai Sword. This board will take you to the next level. Go get it!
