Description

Some classics just get better with each year.

The Burton Custom Snowboard has been seen ripping everything from Alaskan steeps to pipes to your local downtown rails. No wonder riders like Mads Jonsson and Heikki Sorsa count on the Custom when they need a versatile ride to bring their style to the whole mountain. Pro-Tip construction reduces swing weight, so you can easily get the last bit of your rotation and stomp each landing with ease. As always, the Custom includes tough 10:45 sidewalls, and a fast, durable Sintered Vision WFO base. *We have no control over which board color you receive, but they all rock, so you'll be stoked. - Fall 2008.

Hi, i am looking at the '09 custom. I was told the 162W would be the best option for me. Im 6'2 170lbs boot size 11. Would this be accurate for the 162W?

Responded on

You are definitely ok with the wide board, however the length is dependant on your skill and preference. I wouldn't go with any longer board than a 162. Especially if you're more of a beginner. I am 6'1" 165 pounds size 12 shoe and ride a wide 158. That is pretty much as long of a board as I would like.
Basically, the shorter the board the more control you'll have, the longer the board, the faster you'll be able to go and more stable it'll be at high speeds. Also a longer board is better in powder, while a shorter one is better in the terrain park. So it really depends on what type of riding you'll be doing and your skill level (shorter boards for beginners).
If I were you and could find a 160Wide I would probably go with that. But if the only thing available is the 162, you should be fine, after all it's only 2 more centimeters.

Great All-Mountain

I've owned this board through 2 winters now, (I have the previous model) and would buy it again if it came to it. Love the board. Absolutely no problems anywhere on the mountain.

Hey i wanna buy the 2009 custom just as a freestyle board. I would be getting the 156, what size binding does the 156 take and does that binding work with a 10 and 1/2 boot?

Responded on

The length of the board really doesn't tell you what size binding to use. I have a 156 too, and wear size 11 boots. I use L Burton Cartel bindings, and haven't experienced any overhang problems. Large bindings should work with most riders wearing size 9-13 boots.

Good for the money when on sale

I like it....fun board to ride. Very responsive. It was a life saver on hard semi-ice packed slopes. It is pretty fast too and easy to ride. Though I liked my old Gnu, I have way more control on this board.

I was wondering how i can buy a custom snowboard with an American flag design on the snowboard?

Responded on

go to www.Series13.com to create your own burton snowboard with a custom topsheet and text on the base, be warned it will cost you at least 200 dollars more than just buying the board regularly, you cannot return it, and very few boards are available for customization. I do not believe the Custom is avialable but the custom X is.

Unless there is a special edition custom i am not aware of that is the only way to get what you want.

again with the colors

I placed an order for a 156, then read the complaints about people not getting the color they wanted. Contacted live chat and was told there is no choice of color you take what you get. Cancelled my 1st order as a result.

Then I contacted a couple other retailers and Burton themselves. As I originally thought, colors are not take what you get they are size specific. The pics above for the different sizes are the color you will get for that size.

I reordered a 156 and got the red blue that is pictured and what I wanted

hi, i know that most customs are ics boards. and this picture doesnt show that it is. is this a picture of the wide board or is it not a ics board? please let me know

Responded on

nope this is just the custom, theres a custom ics and a custom x, but this plain custom uses regular 3d and 4 hole set ups, which you can tell by looking at the description and the pics :-)

i wear a size 11 and a got the 154cm. will that work with this board? Or do i got to send it back for a wide?

Responded on

check out backcoutrys return policy, you can even try it out on the mountian if you want...but the size/width you got should work fine

what color does the 154 custom come in ?

"*We have no control over which board color you receive, but they all rock, so you'll be stoked"...you might want to get on live chat with backcoutry and see if they can tell you what colors they have and pick out a certian color for you

why the complaints about not getting the expected color? Isn't color dependent on size?

Responded on

"*We have no control over which board color you receive, but they all rock, so you'll be stoked. "...its in the description bro :-)Yes I realise that but every website I have looked at on these boards shows the 151 as yellow/green, the 156 as red/blue, and the 154 158 and 162 as rasta. If I get rasta on the 156 I ordered it is going backwell you could get on a live chat with backcountry and ask em if they can do anything to get you a specific color, it would save a lot of hassle, but be QUICK!...backcountry's pretty good about shippin orders fast

why i dont see in the picture the chanel of the binding? is there one?

I think what you're getting at is "Is this an ICS board?" it is not- try Item # BUR2474.

A good all around deck

I liked my custom, actually, I loved my custom until I road the new Burton Hero. The custom rips, has a decent amount of pop for an all-mountain board, and is nice and responsive. The custom is definitely an all-mountain board and its flex patterns reflect this. The nose is a bit stiffer than the tail and overall, the board is responsive because it's fairly stiff. I'm not saying it's custom X or Vapor stiff, just that it definitely is not a true park board (and it's not trying to be). It's great on the jumps and I'm sure it would be good in the pipe (I don't ride pipe), but it's not the best for jibbing. So yeah, it's a great board, but demo a reverse camber or zero camber board prior to investing in the Custom. The Fix and The Hero are Burton's zero and reverse camber boards, respectively. The Hero definitely shreds the pow better than the Custom does, and it has a ton of pop and flex, yet holds a good edge even on hard pack.

Hi im 15 yearsold and i want to know, ive seen the sizing chart already but i i want a board to fit me for like 3 years should i get the 156 or the 158?

Responded on

Hey Mike,It all depends on your riding style (and height/weight, of course). I'm 6'0" and 202 pounds, but I ride a 156 board, because I'm quite partial to shorter boards. If you judge the length you want in a board by how high it reaches on your body, mine is only up to the lowest part of my collarbone. If you like ripping pow, get the longest board you can, and if you're into jibbing and street rails, early 150s is where you're gonna want to look. Anywhere in between is a solid all-mountain/freestyle stick. If you ride the way I do (I'm a more of a freerider, but I'll venture into the park for some sessions from time to time) I'd go for the 156, but it's totally up to you.
