Description: Burton Barracuda Snowboard
With snow coating the surrounding mountains, you might be ready to head out to carve up some powder. Be sure you're grabbing the Burton Barracuda Snowboard to get the best ride down the mountain. The Barracuda board has an S-Rocker so that you'll be able to skim over the powder with ease keeping you from acquiring drag that slows you down. Toss in a directional flex to keep you pointed in the right direction and this board is ready for the more advanced and intermediate riders to push their limits and test their skills.

You don't have to downsize the Burton Barracuda if you really don't want to, you'll just float like you are riding a 160cm board in the powder.
It looks like you fit best within the suggested weight range of the 152cm Burton Barracuda Snowboard (130-180 lbs.) v. the 149cm that has a suggested weight range of 110-160 lbs.
The Burton Barracuda Snowboard is a deck that many say is special, it's designed to be ridden on groomers and in the backcountry, and it does it flawlessly. The setback stance, directional shape & flex (stiffer tail), triax fiberglass, and Frostbite Edges help grip on firm groomers and have quick edge to edge response. Those key features combined with the S-Rocker profile shape make the Barracuda one of the best freeride boards on the market. The camber provides stability at high speeds and the rocker nose floats in pow.
One of the best things about the Burton Barracuda Snowboard for you would be the Nug Raduction tech that allow you to ride a short length, which is ideal for tight turns in the trees.
I give the Barracuda 2 thumbs up, it will treat you right.
This is a good question. The snowboard listed "Burton Barracuda Blem Snowboard 169 2014" has slight scratches or blemishes on the top of the board. The cosmetic blems on this board are nothing more than small dimples in the topsheet or a slightly offset graphic. All blem boards come with a full manufacturer warranty and will perform as well as an unblemished board.
Can the Burton Barracuda be shipped to Australia?
The 'Shipping Info' link says 'yes' but the product's page says 'no'.
Sorry for the inconvenience
