Best Women's All-Mountain Snowboards 2017-2018
Burton Story Board If the mountain is a blank sheet of paper, and your riding style writes your words, imagine the tales you'll tell with Burton's Storyboard. This directional camber board is new to Burton's burgeoning women's line, and is one of the stiffest female decks Burton offers. Testers gravitated to this directional camber board for its hard-charging nature. "A more aggressive rider would appreciate this board, because the flex won't be easy for everyone to manipulate… You need decent leg muscles to make this board your bitch," concluded a dominant lady ripper. With a slightly setback stance, the sidecut makes it ride like a twin, and the fish-like tail was easy to whip, while also providing a nice sink in pow. Carbon highlights throughout add to the stiffness, and many testers identified this deck as 'stable, yet responsive.' The top sheet features haunting imagery by none other than Dean Blotto Gray, making it an artsy all-mountain destroyer, built to tell your tale.
