Gone are the days when powder boards were giant planks that you only broke out a few times a year, on the deepest days of the season. The Burton Family Tree Speed Date Snowboard floats just as well as any of those behemoths of yesteryear, but it also offers a fast, agile ride that surfs nimbly through powder and rails turns on hardpack when the snow isn't quite as fresh. Simply put, this is a board that you'll love riding all season, no matter what the conditions are like. The key to its versatility starts with Burton's Balanced Freeride Geometry. This design lets it ride like a setback directional board when you're in fresh powder, but still centers the stance between the contact points so the board feels like a twin when carving up groomers. Speaking of the shape, the Speed Date sports a huge nose and a stubby, tapered tail so your tip stay up with ease, even in the deepest, fluffiest snow. Directional Camber places rocker at the nose for added float, but uses camber throughout the rest of the board for reliable edge hold and powerful response. Whether you're slashing powder or trenching turns on your favorite blue run, the Speed Date is your ticket to a good time.
