Burton Con Artist 2018 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Con Artist is a board that keeps coming back but rumor is that this is the last season it will be made for a while or forever.  Burton’s Family Tree line has been a lot of fun to ride over the years and this is no exception.  It feels like a new take on the Branch Manager but with a lot of it’s own unique super turny personality.  It’s all about quick surfy turns and good pop.  It’s even not bad switch for how directional and tapered it is.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
