Press tricks were really easy to do!
★ Kanagawa: Yamapi (51 years old) / Snowboard history: 20 years / Favorite rider: Dave Downing / Board currently in use: BURTON CK NUG 150
★ Test drive board: TRICK PONY
If I was checking various boards at the venue, what kind of ride would it be like in a strange way?I was curious, so I took a test drive.When I tried the test drive, it was a board that was easy to turn and very easy to ride.Because of the flexibility, I was able to do press tricks very easily.m1_mg_b36
I was surprised that switch riding was very easy.
Kanagawa: Kensuke Hachuda (17 years old) / Snowboard history: 3 years / Favorite rider: Danny Davis / Board currently in use: BURTON CUSTOM 140
★ Test drive board: TWIN
I'm riding CUSTOM now, and I was curious about a model with a different shape, so I tried riding TWIN.Anyway, this design, the dark feeling of the skeleton is very cool.Unlike the directional board I usually ride, I felt that switch riding was very easy.The repulsion was good and I slid comfortably.m2_mg_b34


The sharpness of carving was more than expected
★ Osaka: Pome (20 years old) / Snowboard history: 2 years / Favorite rider: Nothing in particular / Board currently in use: K2 LIFE 155, GRAY DESPERADO TI TYPE R 163
★ Test drive board: CUSTOM X
Right now, the binding is BURTON's MALAVITA, so I wanted to match the board with BURTON, so I tried a test drive. I've never rode CUSTOM X before, but it was great to ride it.Especially the carving was sharper than expected and I was surprised.It has a good grip and a sense of stability, and I am very glad that it responded according to my image.m4_mg_b28

I feel like Danny Davis !!
★ Chiba: Mikiya (30 years old) / Snowboard history: 13 years / Favorite riders: Danny Davis, Mark Sollors / Board currently in use: BURTON PROCESS 152
★ Test drive board: EASY LIVIN
I like Danny Davis, so I tried riding EASY LIVIN on which he is riding.Anyway, I like the graphic of Red Zeperin.that's cool.The feeling of control was different from the board I'm riding now, and I was a little confused, but the kicker and pipe seemed to be in very good shape.m15_mg_b15

I felt that the carving stability was getting better!
Gunma: Ryo Asako Chigira / Snowboard history: 18 years / Favorite rider: Anna Gasser / Board currently in use: BURTON TALENT SCOUT
★ Test drive board: FEEL GOOD
By all means, I wanted to try the stability of FEEL GOOD carving.It feels like you want to try the correct slide rather than playing.When I stepped on it, it was firm and the carving was very stable as expected.I thought it was a good match for my slip.1_Ryo Asako Chigira 3_Gunma 4_Female 5_18 years 6_Anna Gasser 7_BURTON TALENT SCOUT 8_FEELGOOD I wanted to test the stability of carving 9_I feel like I want to slide correctly rather than play.I wonder if there was a sense of stability due to the hardness.It was a good match for my slip.


It was a very fun board with good operability.
★ Saitama: Ayako Ose / Snowboarding history: 19 years / Favorite rider: Josh Darksen / Board currently in use: SALOMON SICK STICK
★ Test drive board: DAY TRADER
My friend recommended that I don't like DAY TRADER, so I wanted to give it a try. I haven't had a lot of BURTON boards before, so I definitely wanted to try it.Anyway, the stability and operability were very good and it was easy to ride and I enjoyed it.It goes perfectly with your riding.
