The new Burton Feather Snowboard 153 for women is a phenomenal board for beginners. This board is specifically designed for beginners because its specifications allow beginners to progress quickly and efficiently. This board is practically impossible to catch an edge with therefore beginners can learn the basics fast. Plus once you've mastered the basics you can continue to work with this board to learn new tricks and improve your boarding skills so that you can rock the slopes in no time.
Burton ICS channel boards will only work with Burton EST, Burton 3-hole or other ICS compatible bindings.
Burton 3-hole boards will only work with non-EST Burton bindings or other 3-hole compatible bindings.
Easy board to ride - highly recommended for learners. Easy to turn, no fear of catching an edge. Be careful in the hard pack though - a little hard to control there due to the board not being edgy.
My girlfiend used this as her first board and was able to learn easily. It was a soft board making it very forgiveable, I wouldn't have wanted her to learn on any other board with any other aspects.
not much to say about the board other then its a good board for beginners. Its a relatively decent price and rides well.
This board I hear is great for beginners!
this is a great board to learn on if you want a cheaper board of good quality.
I demo'd this board several times when I was trying to decide what to buy. This is a great learning board because it's super light and very easy to maneauver. I ultimately went with a Feelgood because there's to much give in the Feather once you start going fast. If you're just doing beginner falling leaf stuff, this is the perfect board to do it on.
This board is really good if your new to riding, but it isn't the most durable board as he topsheet easily chips. The price is fairly affordable and the board is easy to
Maneuver, but it doesn't have good control down steeper terrain. If you can it mite be with getting a nicer board to begin with because you will probably outgrow this board quickly
great beginer board with great designs for 2011. really loved teh decal on it. came with a free lift on mine also. so great for my first time. because this was ez v but is actually a rocker shaped, l found it alot easier to not catch an edge. but because of the less contact, l found it hard to control on icy conditions. also when l try to carve, it doesn't seem to perform as good as l expected. l would love to see a camber version option for this next yr. its a really soft board and realyl easy for me to flex, can be for good and bad, personal preference. the quality isnt as high as l wanted. after 1 season, i can see some serious weardown on it
i have mine from 2 years ago that i got at our ski/snowboard show, and its a love hate relationship. like what the past people said, this board is VERY had to control when you speed up to a relatively fast speed, its SO unbelievably hard to control. this board is my baby and i learned on it :) but now that ive done the basics and got over my fear of going fast and through trees, it makes it near impossible to do it without catching an edge or riding a frikkin bull.
While this is a great board to learn on, after taking it out for a couple of weeks in Japan I very quickly developed a love/hate relationship. Although it had previously served me well on the nice baby groomed runs, taking it down the steeper terrain resulted in control difficulties. Secondly, the budget build makes it a more fragile ride, with mine starting to develop serious damage after only a couple of days (the top sheet laminate began to peel back). It also has a more budget base that doesn't hold wax as easily, and thus requires waxing more often.
Although this was a great board as a beginner, it really won't last serious riders for more than a season. In many ways you're better off seeing yourself through the baby years on a hire board.
Great board for the bunny slopes, buck's like like a b!@tch once you get any kind of speed going though!
This board's so light and easy to flex, great for learning on. Is fun to ride on at low speeds on or off trail and has a bit of pop to get you started over kickers.
It'll get you to the top of the mountain in no time, at which point you'll be looking for your next board.
