Snowboard Life’s Top 25 Board Test 2000 Burton Fluid

“Leather-upholstered, high-powered luxury snowboard for controlled cruising and freestyle finesse,” is how Burton describes this model.

Our testers agree. “Just buttery,” says Kevin. “Whip it or walk it through turns, stomp on the pedal and let it run.”

Randy adds, “Good in bumps, nice in crud, fast on the groomers.”

Pro-rider Jason Borgstede had a hand in the design, and as an Alaska/Tahoe ripper he needs a board he can throw technical tricks, go big off kickers, and surf steep pow with. What could be more Fluid? If you like effortless turning and a forgiving ride for all-around fun, this is your best bet. Also good for people with a slightly larger boot size.
