Burton''s Blunt is one of the top beginner to intermediate park sticks. Everyone knows Burton is on the forefront of technology and even their beginner boards get a new trick every so often. In this years blunt we have all the familiar features from years before like the Cruise Control edge technology and the V-Rocker but now you also get the extra boost of Jumper Cables. Basically Carbon rods in the tail that give you an extra boost for bigger ollies and more edge hold on rougher landings. Just starting out and not sure you''ll be in the park? That''s ok because all the features designed into their park boards translate into very forgiving and easy to ride beginner''s boards. Whether you taking the lumps out of your first turns or your first tail press the Blunt is sure to speed up your learning curve.

This board is very fun! I've taken it all over the mountain at Bear mountain, Snow summit, and mountain high and its performed as i would like. I've found the V-rocker to save me quite a few times at times where i would normally fall. Found it easy to jump and land this board. Did well on boxes too.
I picked this board out for my brother because he was just starting. It is a reverse camber, so its super forgiving. I took it out for a day and noticed the super buttery flex. I was amazed on how easy you could press on the boxes and board slide the rails. Great board for all levels of riding. A+ boar
I love my blunt board. I have great feel no matter where I'm at on the mountain. No problems just cruising around when I have a relaxing song come on. Really shines once I get a song that pumps me up and I get really aggressive flying around and hitting up the park. No complaints from my end
I have to 2010 blunt and I ride the whole mt. with it. It works best on inermediate runs. I use it in the parks sometimes and it works great on the jumps but not as good on the rails. It depends on what kind of riding you do. If you like to just ride around and hit some jumps occasionally its a great board.
My friend has this board and i demo'd it off of him. I really liked the flex, it has a decent amount of flex, not too much, and not too stiff either. I love the graphics on it. Overall, it rides good and i love it.
I just purchased this board as a jibber/toy... this was my first rocker board. I rode it for a full weekend, early season in 2010/2011. Snow was man made and granular. It held edges well, but not as tight as a camber board.
I felt as if the rocker gave me an early season advantage.... at high speed the board seemed stable, but being early season the steep terrain was limited. I made a few early season errors that normally would have ended in an edge catching, and then face planting the snow.... but not with the rocker... it' just plowed a little, then straightened its self out. Great feel!
I didn't get much time on the snow park features, but i did ride some presses and ollie it a bit. It was stable when pressing.... and ollied like a dream.
Overall I'm happy with this board.... but being preseason, i probably could have strapped cardboard to my feet and still had a blast
A great board for those boxes and rails. I love the rocker tech on this board. It makes it so easy to butter and jib anywhere and everywhere! Its forgiving allowing you to take your skills to the next level. I take this board to the park and the mountain. A great board for anyone looking for progress their skills in the terrain park.
This board is sweet, it's almost impossible to catch your edge because it's a rockered board. IIt's great in park and pow and pretty good on jumps too.The flex is not to soft and not to stiff, id give it a 4. The only thing that i don't like is the base. It's extruded but made of cut out peices and gets messed up. Overall It's a really sweet board and id reccomend it
To put this simple, this is a park specific board that can do everything! Its got a perfect flex for buttering and jibs but doesnt wash out, but still has a decent amount of pop (haven't tried with the jumper cables, so it could be even better). Carving is also not bad, good considering its a reverse camber park board. The thing that surprised me the most was how well it floated in the pow. I've rode other park board that the companies claim float well and its not always the case. Bottomline: Great valued do it all board! I put beginner as the skill level, but its a fun board for all different levels of riders.
I've been riding this for a few days now and love it. Very flexy for me, presses well. Rocker takes a little getting used to coming from a traditional camber board. A little too soft to really push the speed limit in the steeps but very fun for all mountain cruising and the park. Great board for lousy socal early/late season conditions
