A board's bend from tip to tail determines how playful or precise the ride will be. Burton offers Camber, Rocker, and Spring Loaded boards. To tell the difference, a camber board will arch when laying flat on the ground, and a rocker board will do the opposite and literally rock from tip to tail. Camber boards are traditionally considered precise and poppy, while rocker boards are soft flexing, playful and forgiving. Springloaded boards tend to land in the middle, borrowing benefits of each.

Raduction lets you ride boards up to 8-10 cm shorter than normal for a more maneuverable, skate-like ride. They're surprisingly floaty, stable at speed and as poppy as you need. Look for the Raduction icon on boards like the Nug, Nugget, Root, and Super Hero. Make it short and sweet.
