Burton Pile Driver – 2015 Powder Board Review | TransWorld SNOWboarding

It might be stubby but it can shred. The Pile Driver is a retro take on a fish board with 12 millimeters of taper and a subtle swallowtail. The 140-centimeter length may seem short, but the boards’ large surface area made it surprisingly buoyant, quick to accelerate even for larger riders, and allowed for lightning-quick turns. We found the thick profile, cambered back-end and minimal sidecut to hold up to higher speeds than we anticipated. The fully padded top makes it rideable sans bindings if you choose.
