Burton Stun Gun 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Stun Gun is the evolution of the Gatekeeper and Dumptruck but has enough tweaks to give it it’s own personality. It’s like a shorter/fatter Dumptruck with more volume in the nose, less volume in the tail and a little less taper.  It’s for those that want something a little more tapered and more back foot heavy/surfy than most Burton Boards that can still carve up groomers. After spending a good bit of time on this it has a more set back feel than the Burton Skeleton Key and much more than the Burton Flight Attendant but carves just as hard. Of the three, this would be the first choice for riding powder and it’s a very recommendable ride. Its just a shame it will disappear at the end of the season.

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.

Size: 155
Days:  10+
How this review happened: We bought this board after demoing it and our web developer (Tim) now owns it.
Conditions: Some hard snow and some bumpy, old and kind of soft snow
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs), Grant (Size 11 6’ 160lbs)
Boots: Burton Ruler Step On and Burton Ion Step On, Adidas Tactical ADV,  Burton SLX,
Set Up
: 22″-23″, Close to reference and set all the way back. 21 front -3 back as well as some other stance width’s and angles.


When setting the Burton Stun Gun all the way back it is 5.875″ back from center at almost a 23″ stance width. Even though its very similar to the Skeleton Key when it comes to set back on board the Stun Gun somehow feels like it is further back on board. Then if you combine the longer nose/ shorter effective edge and the extra taper in the tail it makes sense why this felt more surfy/setback and seems like it might float a touch better in powder but more so, have more a back foot heavy/slashy kind of ride that’s going to be a little more so than the Skeleton Key.
