Burton Speed Date 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Speed Date is new this year and it has that directional camber, setback ride for those that like that super quick tight turn off the back foot ride but don’t want it to be too washy.  It also handles switch really well compared to the other Family Tree boards we tried and it reminded me a little of a stretched out Burton Con Artist I rode last year. We rode a 151 and it was too small for us but we still had a good time on it.  We would love to try the 155 or 161.

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.
