The Burton Deja Vu is for those that like the concept of the Burton Fortress but want something a more mellow. It has the same shape and same similar specs but it just isn’t as stiff or aggressive as the Fortress. It’s not as crisp and snappy but it’s still a pretty responsive, stable and springy ride.
It’s very close to having a twin shape and it rides on the excellent side of good when going switch. The blunted nose and tail do improve the boards ability to ride bigger than it’s size while looking pretty cool. The Burton Deja Vu Camber is for that intermediate to advanced someone who wants a mellow camber all mountain approach to the mountain. The Burton Deja Vu’s only real weaknesses is powder because a camber board just points down and you have to fight to keep it up. At this price it might be possible to afford the Burton Deja Vu camber and then get a fun rocker or hybrid board for powder or mellow soft/slushy snow days. All in all the Burton Deja Vu Camber is a fun do anything board for someone who has a new path every day on the mountain. The 2013 is pretty much the same as the 2012.
