Burton Fix Snowboard

A trendsetter in snowboarding shindig, the Burton Fix Snowboard is the softer and more freestyle friendly snowboard at a very reasonable price. It comes with a sintered flex and sintered side-cut. It integrates the Party Rocker (P-Rocker) Technology that features the Zero Camber between the rider’s feet with rockers outside each edge of the board thereby keeping this gear loose and soft.

This is a freestyle, all mountain Burton Snowboard which mean that this board can really deliver superb quality. No other company that makes and develops snowboards can compare ever kinda close to what Burton can bring to the table. They are known around the globe from amateurs to pros that are ripping it up on tv. It’s really all comes down to the basics, the basics are what they have mastered along with many other things. You know when you get on a snowboard and it feels so great that you never get off of it that it just must be made from Burton, I can take that to the bank. With the current price that the-house.com and with there massive discount that they are advertising right now, you would have to be crazy not to pick up this board or another Burton board right now.

Hate to say this but there are a few downsides for the Burton Fix Snowboard. You can’t run this item at a very high speed because there are cases when the board’s nose folded. It’s a freestyle board but don’t prove well for carving. For those who are not fond of heavy boards, this one’s not for you. Some says that the board is so stiff but Burton found ways to improve their craft. Since the beginning when Burton was making boards they have always been improving and trying new things. Even though it has one downside for freestyling it still works extremely well for freestlye, the problem only occurs once in a million runs. It’s not that it’s the board that has the problem, it’s more of the boarder that screws up that you have problems. The board is more made for moderate riders and not so much for beginners.

Other than that, this board is pretty good for pressing and gliding on boxes. It has a great grip on ice and flexy you won’t feel like you’re riding a noodle. It’s cheap especially during summer. And at normal to mid-high speed, you will enjoy the ride in this snowboard. It’s fairly recommended for beginners and intermediates too. Even though it is a high quality board. Good for free style because of the slower speed of a downhill board that has no free-style features and just built for one thing and one thing only and that is speed. One last thing about this board is flat basing that can fit others as well. Plus it can range in multiple sizes so no matter what size you are you can get that right fit too.

This pretty cool board is one of kind gear for those who want to explore beyond their limits. You’ll have a taste of snowboard feel plus the cushioning touch, easy adjustability and super tons of extras. Fun, Thrill, Adventure, Adrenaline Rush – have them with the Burton Fix Snowboard. Having it so forgiving and super easy to press and manipulate, oh boy! – this board’s for keeps. You will really feel that rush and how well it handles plus the feel of how easily you can bring it through transitions even though its a little still. I’m certain that you will love this board and Burton is almost positive you will like it way a lot too. I hope that these snowboard reviews helped you in deciding if the Burton Fix snowboard is a right fit for you or any other board I have broken down for you. Enjoy!

The increasingly popular winter sport of snowboarding will require you to invest in your very own snowboard, should you decide to get into the sport. But buying a snowboard should not be taken lightly, as this very piece of equipment will help make (or break) the way you ride. With a variety of snowboards available in the market today, being extra careful and meticulous will allow you to snag the finest piece of equipment for the sport. Here’s our guide in getting the board you really need and want:

For beginner riders, it is best that you rent out a couple of different snowboards before making that purchase. Renting allows the newbies to try out firsthand a wide variety of boards of different models and brands, giving you an idea on which snowboard will work perfectly for you. Trying out different boards will also help you figure out your riding style. With most of the resorts offering snowboard rentals, this board tryout shouldn’t be all that hard.

When choosing a snowboard to invest in, remember that your purchase isn’t all about how the board will complete your look together with the rest of your snowboard gear, but its functionality and suitability for you and your level. A great getup will be left unnoticed if your board does not work well with you. Choose a board that will not only improve your board skills, but also ensure your safety in the slopes.

Ready to grab your own board? Read on first on the snowboard’s features and anatomy to give you an overview of the most essential equipment you will need for this sport. Understanding its anatomy and features will help you understand (and invest) in a good piece of equipment.

Now familiar with the board? With an array of choices, let’s now narrow down your choice by giving you the types of boards available in the market. Freestyle, Freeride (All Mountain), or Alpine (Carving) Board? Find out which works best for you by distinguishing the features of each one from another.

Now that you have all the basic information on the board itself, we all know that your purchase all depends on your budget and how much you’re willing to cash out for a snowboard. Snowboards typically range from three different classes, which are:

Entry Level Boards – the most inexpensive snowboard, these boards would cost you between $150-$250. Mid-Range Boards – these boards are priced on an average, costing from $250-$450. Top End Boards – the most expensive boards, these boards are going to cost you from $450 and up.

The cheapest boards are generally much more heavier than the pricey ones, and mostly simpler in design. Boards tend to be more pricey as they get lighter and as specifications are tweaked to fit certain riding styles. It is advisable for beginners to initially invest in a cheaper board, and eventually investing in a more costly snowboard as you find out more about your preferences and demands from this piece of equipment.

With all the board information and with your budget determined, you’re now capable of deciding on which board you should start off with. now you can be sure you will be making a sound investment.

Snowboard Year-Round: How to Ride Once the Snow Melts

Snowboarding high usually ends once the season comes to conclusion. As spring officially marks the end of the season and people can’t wait for the flowers to bloom, the snowboard enthusiast that you are begins to grumble. But if you still can’t get enough and the snow stops coming, you’ve got to take the alternative and beat out the season. So what does a snowboarder do when the snow melts and the sizzling hot sun turns up?

Don’t let the lack of snow stop you from powder shredding, just head for the countries with the opposite season as yours. Set off for New Zealand or Chile to keep you snowboarding than getting a tan while lazing around at the beach. Spots in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand offer great marks, highly recognized as the spot for the Snowboard World Cup last September. Much of the boarders are thankful for the reverse seasons to continue on with their powder runs. If you can’t hack the around-the-world snowboarding fare, then head off to high altitude, close to town destinations with riding offered year round. Mountains are snow-covered at all times, with manufactured snow to back up the slopes in case the powder runs low. Places like Whistler Blackcomb in Canada and Mt. Hood in Oregon are the best bet for summer riding.

If you’re not in luck and can’t get away from town, then get the riding continue in an indoor snow resort. With hundreds upon hundreds of indoor resorts all over the world, there’s no excuse to get away from hitting the rails and getting off from the pipes. Some resorts have real fresh snow, it’s like they’ve shipped the white stuff inside. Check around for the nearest indoor resort in your area where you can freeze up despite the scorching heat outside. With many options to keep you going with that powder thrill, the lack of snow can’t even stop you. So don’t let your skills melt along with the snow during the summer.

Commercial Snowboarding – Good?

The other day, the New York Times ran a piece by Matt Higgins entitled White Finds the Motivation to Reach New Heights.

Higgins talks about how snowboarding’s Olympic gold medalist Shaun White’s commercial endorsements and publicity appearances have detracted from his competitive success.


Undefeated in the last Olympic year, White recently failed to win in a few major competitions.

But, at 20 years old, he’s still pulling in millions from sponsors like American Express and Red Bull.

Nice work if you can get it.

Question is: is this what snowboarding is all about?

Hang out at any ski resort terrain park and you’ll find kids coaching each other, encouraging each other, and generally offering each other positive reinforcement as they try new moves or attempt to perfect new tricks.

It’s a spirit of cooperation, not competition.

And, yes, I understand why talented snowboarders would want to be able to appear in the Olympics.

And, I understand why they’d want to be rewarded with cash prizes and product endorsements.

Still, I think it countermands the basic attitude that has pervaded snowboarding since its inception.

Phenomena like Olympic and World Cup ski racing were considered stuffy, formalized, restricting. Even World Cup freestyle skiing, which was restricted to mogul skiing and aerial jumping, had succumbed to commercialism’s straight jacket.

Riders rejected all that.

Okay—at first they were rebels. But, given that most early snowboarders were young males, that attitude would be expected. And, in their rebelliousness, they banded together to form a kind of self-sustaining support group.

No more?

Well, from outward appearances, not on the highest levels.

That’s sad. On some level, at least.

Yet, the original cooperative spirit does remain. You see it still when you pass through most terrain parks. You hear it when you talk to the park rats. And, better still, with the rise in popularity of freestyle skiing, it has spread from snowboarders-only back to skiers.

Let’s hope it’s not lost in a blizzard of dollars.
