Burton Cheetah 2013 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton Cheetah is a throw back to the powder boards of old with traditional powder camber. It’s basically an old fish with a cooler tail and less taper. Actually there isn’t too much taper. It’s just enough to let the tail sink a little easier than the nose. The Burton Cheetah won’t be for everyone but those old schoolers that want to get more pop than your average powder board with rocker or hybrid board the Burton Cheetah will be a good choice.
This is set way the fu$$ back so it’s all about off the tail riding in the deep stuff. It’s only one size though and by far the best for a mid size foot. The nose is pretty big and turned up that it’s almost like a very mellow s-rocker. For us S-Rocker boards do a better job in powder for the average rider but many expert old school riders still prefer camber over anything else. They like the challenge and are very technical. They have learned how to keep afloat by planing. For 95% of the riders you will most likely enjoy an S-Rocker board like the Barracuda but 5% out there will get your rocks off on this old school super surfy ride.
