Burton X8 Snowboard 151
A light and fast board with a playful feel, the Burton X8 Snowboard 151 is ideal for anyone looking for a high end freestyle board. It sports a new V-Rocker shape, and features ink that changes color at forty degrees. Relatively nimble for its size, the board is very responsive on hard pack snow. While it is a softer board, the flexibility enables you to really feel the terrain underfoot. With such a great balance of flexibility and pop, in addition to its excellent stability at high speeds, this is a board anyone would covet.

Alright, the Burton X8 snowboard. Another, kind of, higher end freestyle snowboard right here.†This is a really unique ride in that it’s pretty soft and playful, but it is torsionally stiff enough that it really is a rock solid snowboard in and out of turns. Holds an edge really well but has a good playful, freestyle feel.
Couple cool new things to talk about this year. For one, it’s got a color changing ink. It’s called the Living Ink in the top sheet, so when the temperature goes below forty degrees, the colors in this top sheet graphic will sort of change, get a little bit darker. Pretty neat feature. Tadashi Fuse has been riding this snowboard, if you’re not familiar with him, check him out. A Japanese rider that lives up in Whistler now, guy is insane in the back countries.
So, a great all around freestyle snowboard. Part of our demo snowboard is kind of trashed. Real fun Park Fly 3 centered WFO base. Infinite ride, channel system, and the 1045 sidewall. This is a great snowboard for anybody looking for a high performance freestyle ride. So, that’s your Burton X8 snowboard.
My specs are 5'9 and 160 pounds. I rode the 155. If I were to have used this as a one board quiver I probably would have bought the 157 because I think it is plenty forgiving to handle in park and butter with while getting a little more stiffness for speed.
The graphic is better in person than it appears in the picture if that matters to you.
I used to own this board
