Description

The Burton Throwback is just that, a throwback to the roots of snowboarding. I'm talking back when snowboarding was imagined to surf the mountain, long before people were spinning onto rails and throwing triple corks off 100ft booters. The Throwback may look old, but give it a go and you'll see it throws off the shackles of modern snowboarding and lets you experience the mountain just like the pioneers of the sport, but with a few advantages of modern technology.

The Throwback has no edges and is not compatible with bindings. Check with your local mountain to see if they allow the use of boards such as this. Includes rope & handle and grip pad.


Key Features

Camber Type: Rocker

Rocker from tip to tail. Keeps your nose up in powder and brings the contact points off the snow for a floaty, catch free ride.

Flex: 3/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)

Shape:

Directional - Just like the original snowboard shapes (which were designed with surfing in mind), this board has a longer nose than tail to give you power in the back foot and keep your nose above the snow.

Core:

FSC Certified core - True to the throwback spirit, the core is completely wood for a natural feel.

Base:

Extruded - Easy care and easy to repair, perfect if you're not too worried about speed or keeping your board perfectly maintained. Also features a die-cut base graphic.
