Has anyone experience with women's Burton snowboards? I sooooo fell in love with the design of one yesterday, but I only had Salomons and Nitros so far and personally don't know a girl who rides Burtons, most of my friends have Nitros as well :shrug: I don't trust the guy in the shop 100%, that's why I'm asking...

Can anyone help? :)

I don't know what sort of information you want. What exactly don't you trust the guy in the shop with?

I think boards are boards. It doesn't matter that much what brand you get. When that Burton one is cool for you and its characteristics fit you, why not buy it.

I bought me a board around 2 years and i have not yet got to use it. What a shame. It's a burton too, hot green :drool:

Well, he's a guy, he probably doesn't ride women's boards :lol: And I usually feel more comfortable if I can speak to someone who has some experience with those.

I have three at the moment, 2 Nitros and a Salomon, and trust me, they're not the same at all :lol: Although they're all allmountain boards they don't flex the same. In the store I had the impression that the Burton one is pretty stiff. Another thing is that Burton is the only brand that uses own inserts, that would then also mean I would have to get a new binding as well, as every other brand uses parallel ones.

The one I saw is dark red, here's a pic I've found of it:

parallel ones? you mean the feet are parallel in all bindings but Burton's? I thought it's always that the front foot is a little more turned towards the top, no matter what brand you use?

by the way, the board looks hot :)

No, not the feet, sorry, it's late over here, my writing's a little :retard: :lol: the inserts are parallel for all brands except Burton, that means only a Burton binding goes with a Burton board. Look, you can use a Nitro binding with a Rossignol board for example, but never a K2 binding for a Burton board... this way you're more flexible, I have 3 boards but only 1 binding :) Muuuuuch cheaper :lol:

ahhh I get it. Well my Burton board does have Burton bindings indeed. I just bought it together.

So then maybe u should forget the damn Burton board. Bindings are too expensive to get extra ones for each board. You definitly find hot looking boards of other brands too.

Actually, why do you need a new baord if u have already 3?

I don't need a board. The design just caught me, this is so me, that board :drool: that's why I was asking if anyone could tell me more about Burton women's boards, because it's a lot of money that I would invest. And I wouldn't do it if anyone had bad experiences. As I said, it seemed to be more stiff than others. :shrug:

:lol: Perhaps I should tell you that I live only 1 hour away from the alpes and only 20 minutes to go to the skiing region of the southern black forest. So that's not really a problem... to get there... Perhaps I just buy some new gloves :lol:

Do you live in the area of the Feldberg?? :cool: I'm officially jealous you are so close to mountains. Berlin is rather flat :eek:

fährst du auch hin und wieder in die schweiz zum snowboarden? :cool:
Klar, vor allem um diese Jahreszeit, liegt ja noch kein Schnee im Schwarzwald :lol: Aber diesen Herbst war ich noch nicht, nächste Woche vielleicht, erstmal rausfinden, wie die Verhältnisse auf den diversen Gletschern sind. :)

:) Schön, da war ich noch nie. Wie ist's da? Wenn ich richtig zum Snowboarden hinfahre, geht's meistens nach Engelberg-Titlis, die Pisten sind zwar nicht ganz so riesig wie in Crans Montana, aber dafür ist's auch nicht ganz so weit :) Naja, und sobald hier Schnee liegt, bleib' ich natürlich hier :lol: Hier kommst du sogar von Freiburg mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln an die Skilifte und ich fahr mit meinem Semesterticket umsonst rauf. Bei den Spritpreisen und Parkgebühren ganz nützlich...
