Burton Easy Livin Flying V - 2011

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/burton/logo/burton_logo.gif

Last year Tom took the standard cambered Easy Livin’ for a spin. This year our tester Ben Malloy took the all new Flying V version. If the words ‘super flexi’, ‘snappy pop’ and ‘quick and responsive’ tickle your fancy and fit within your demands of a park board then the Easy Livin’ should be on your shopping list.

Manufacturer's Description:

Take it easy. Live it up.

Developed by Danny Davis and proven during his trips through the snowboard universe, it’s no wonder so many team riders are Easy Livin™ users. Given the combined ride-altering effects of our critically acclaimed Flying V™ rocker/camber combination, grippingly precise Frostbite Edges, and ultra-responsive Lightning Bolts there’s no saying how far out you’ll get.

Burton Easy Livin Flying V

Snowboard Review:

The board of choice of US all-round superstar Danny Davis, the Burton Easy Livin’ is a super fun board which lends itself to all kinds of riding. When I first strapped this board on It instantly felt like I had been riding it also season, despite the innovative flying V rocker used in its construction. The super flexi feel to this board means it is extremely easy to press and butter and suits kicker riding with its snappy pop and forgiving reverse camber on sketchy landings. This is one of the most fun boards I have ridden lately and would make a great purchase for anyone looking to get creative all over the hill. For sure it suits the park but this board would not feel out of place hammering down the pistes and although I rode it in slushy conditions, the Easy Livin’s flying-V camber would help you make those floaty powder turns. The board is quick and responsive enough to suit indoor and small park riders and the Hunter S Thompson graphics mean this great looking board should be a huge seller for Burton. Of the Burton boards I have ridden lately this would certainly be my choice and the Easy livin’ would be more than a match for any of the other big-name freestyle boards out there.

In the words of Hunter S Thompson – “Let the good times roll”

Hello again Rich, Thanx for the quick reply about the Eazy Living Flying V & the Super Model X. I have the 2009 Machette as my park board and I love it. I weigh about 170, 5’9” a lean mean boarding machine LoL, and Im not crazy about the Machette at high speeds. I am really looking to fill the void with a board to hit the bowls, carve up the groomed runs, and something for all around the mountain except the park. Well maybe the park for at least every once in a while if its on the way back down while on this other board. Help me choose. I actually have the 160 Super Model X now new in box, but Im contemplating exchanging it for your board of choice. So before I use it this season I want to make sure this is the right one for what I expect from a board. Thanx Man!!

Oh if you have a Machete and you want a board for the groomers and off piste please stick with the Supermodel X. I thought you needed a board to do all of it. Taper and a stiffer flex will be absolutely perfect groomers. Do not return that board!!!! Unpack it wax it and wait for the first day of pow or groomed pistes!

Hello again Rich, One last question. Im helping a friend choose a board. He wanted an all mountain board as well. He is 5’10 and about 180lb. Likes cruizin the mountain over hitting the Park. What is the difference between the Burton Custom V-Rocker & the Custom Flying V. Which do you prefer? Thanx
