Possibly the most popular snowboard at the test, the Custom Flying V seemed to have its own fan club with everyone high fiving each other after riding this board. I don't think there is anything you can't do or ride with a Custom, or I haven't come across it yet...

There are plenty of people who have had the pleasure of owning and riding the Burton Custom, and now I've joined them, after I strapped into the Custom and an hour later came back with a ridiculous grin on my face.

This snowboard is fast, insanely poppy, stable and can carve like a knife. If you want to step up your riding in a big way this board is a must, the V Rocker made it surprisingly easy to ride and the base was ludicrously fast.

As soon as I jumped into the powder this board showed how strong it is and flew through the steep and deep and still it was easy to turn and ride.

This is a powerful snowboard and although it was fun in the park I wouldn't recommend it to park beginners - there are better boards for that. Ambitious beginners looking to progress will get on with the Custom V Rocker but it's really suited to intermediate and advanced riders.
