Make learning a breeze.
Similar to placing training wheels on your kid's first bike, the Burton After School Special Kids' Snowboard Package gives your grom the upper hand in learning to ride, thanks to its easy-turning flex pattern, catch-free convex base, and pre-mounted bindings. This snowboard package comes with easy-ratcheting, single-strap bindings pre-mounted in a beginner-friendly stance for hassle-free riding. In fact, you'll find the board's twin-mounted stance facilitates both regular and goofy riding, just in case your child hasn't found his/her preferred stance yet.
By far, the biggest difficulty beginners experience is learning to link turns without catching an edge and subsequently taking an unexpected tumble. To combat this, the After School Special is tuned with a soft-flexing Super Fly core for easy turn initiation. Going one step further to prevent unexpected edges from catching, the board's Easy Rider base profile upturns the base in a convex shape where the contact points meet the snow. This allows up-and-coming riders to initiate turns without excess bite.
Please note that this board is fully compatible with Burton's Riglet Reel (sold separately), which allows you to pull your child to get them accustomed to riding—with or without bindings mounted. This retractable nylon leash attaches to the board's nose, acting as an on-snow chauffeur for first-time riders.

Great for thew Grom
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
We got this board for my son, Johnny the week that he learned to walk. The same week we got him shredding like a pro. It's great it's a complete set up, so it comes with the board, bindings and the hardware. He ended up getting in about 20 days this season. Which is more than my brother, or most people! Pair this board with the riglet reel and you can do some training in the house with your little shredder, or use it on the mountain to help with speed and control. Here's a video of my little dude using it!
Great product for young ones!
We are very happy with our purchase for our little one. He's very excited to get to use it! He is 3 and can easily buckle in and unbuckle his own boots. Unfortunately he was sick the day we were supposed to go snowboarding so we haven't used it on actual snow yet. Very happy with the quality of the product and can't wait to use it!
Perfect board for the wee ones
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
What's not to love about a tiny human in a complete setup? The Burton After School Special is the perfect first board for a young grommet looking to get their flow on.
Great starter board
Bought this for my son in a 80cm. He just turned 2 years old and the board and bindings work great! The riglet reel is a must and makes it easy to tow them around on carpet at the house before they go on the snow.
Can you use your kid's regular winter boots with this setup or do you have to get the mini grom boots as well?
