From personal experience, the Burton Whammy Bar Snowboard 153 is a very great board. It was just released this year and will make you feel like a boss. This is a really great board with all new technology and materials packed into it. Anyone who loves snowboarding and has experience on the slopes should go for this. You won't regret the decision as it is one of the best boards out there on the market.

Before buying this board I read every reiew made on it and I was truely expecting a good park board thats should strictly stay in the park, but after riding it I have to disagree with a lot of the reviews iv'e read. This board can tear it up outside of the park too. In the park it's amazing but outside it does pretty good too. Though it's not the best for all mountain/freestyle riding it still works. I took this thing on the halfpipe and could pull 540's. I do kinda agree that it lacks edge hold but the frostbite edges helped improve it. Plus lack of edge hold is expected on most v-rocker boards. Stability at speed would be my only other complaint. Once I started to pick up speed it felt slightly squirley but I was going insanely fast and as I said before, this board can handle even pipe. That leads me to the conclusion that this board deserves 4 stars. It's a great board only lacking a few things
I demo'd this board today at Hunter and fell in love with it. I rode it all over the mountain, but would suggest to keep it within the ropes of the park because it tends to get kind of squirrelly at high speeds when trying to engage an edge in a carve thanks to the detune on the edges and the spoons through out the board. A surprise was that there was no chatter even at high speeds. I would actually want to try this board in the powder because the rocker does float very well over bumps and jumps. On boxes and rails this thing kills, because it is really tough to catch an edge. Also this board is a butter machine, Jumps were fun also and landing was stable and I did not wash out at all. I really would love to get this board and recommend it to any hardcore jib fan. Plus the Bob Marley model is sick looking
This Board is the park board to own this year! The midscoop really helps you glide through kinks, this soft board makes buttering a breeze, seriously amazing on the jibs, spins like a top too! As far as jumps go, not the biggest fan, as some of the landings can get a little squirrely on RC boards, but handle well none the less. The board does well on the groomers, and non-groomers, but don't plan on riding too much side country with it, as it comes up too soft. Floats great through the chop as well. If you're anywhere between a beginner in park, to advanced, this is the board for you
This board is pretty sweet! I picked it up at an end of season sale, so so it was totally worth it. The spooning at the nose/tail and between the bindings is really nice because you don't catch your edges when you press your board flat on the snow. I haven't really noticed a difference with the spooning in the middle because you normally don't lay your board flat on the snow when your perpendicular to the mountain, but even on boxes and rails I didn't notice any difference from my skate banana or blunt. This is a good board for smaller mountains or park ride, mainly jibs, boxes, rails etc. It is also good for medium sized jumps, but landings are definitely not as solid if you don't stomp. Lastly, with any reverse cambered board, not that great at high speeds
Love this board. I loved the dominant, and this board is a perfect replacement. the midspoon was weird at first, but after a few runs i got used to it. if you have trouble getting off the lift this isn't for you, as your back foot will be centered over the midspoon, thus not giving you any edge control off the chair at all
i demoed this board and fell in love. good pop, light weight, and sturdy. i rode a little smaller size than usual yet still felt more stable at high speeds than on the board i have now. i wish i could afford this deck!! hah
I road this board this weekend. My friend got it at the begining of the season. It has good pop and handles well on the jib's. It also has a cool desgin. The only problem I thougt it has is it has a lack of stablity at speed.
I took this board for a spin during Burton's Demo Tour. The mid-scoop really makes a difference for park and jibbing but I do not recommend it for all mountain riding. It's very catch free, easy to spin, and locks on rails. It does not carve well at all. Overall I enjoyed messing around on this board on a bluebird park day
