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.

i have the 156 wide perfect for my specs with cartel est. This board is fun in powder and groomers. its quite stiff like i find it hard to butter anything, but with a small blend of rocker in the nose its a little forgiving. extremely quick edge to edge,carves hard, good edgehold though could do with frostbite edges (imo),not as back footed as most family trees. a lot of fun board and rewards you for going fast like the custom x. can handle slower speed average.
looking forward to spending more time on it
Great powder and carving board
Amazing board. I bought 156 wide. Best feeling board I've owned. Better than my previous yes standard I've owned. Locks in carves. So good! Conquers Japow resorts and super stable and high speeds. Heavier than most boards I've rode but barely. I would recommend the the wide 156w to anyone who is in the range as far as weight. It is barely wider than a usual 156 board. But the float and carving is so worth it. Would buy again! I now know what kind of rider I am because of this board.
