Brandon Says: The 2007 Burton Twin is a park rider's dream come true. The new 2007 park fly 2 core packs the Burton Twin with all the power between the bindings and lightening up the tip and tail for reduced swing weight, giving you the opportunity to stomp your spins like a pro. The Burton Twin also features a 10:45 sidewall, insuring the durability that the most hardcore jibbers demand. The Burton Twin's true twin shape makes stomping your switch landings an effortless task. The Burton Twin is a board for the individual that wants to push themselves into superhuman orbit in the park.

Donald Says: Chewing double-mint gum, lugging around matching luggage, Brandon and I both rode the retro version of the Burton Twin for a while during the spring. This was the easiest board to butter that I have ever ridden. Handrails are super easy to lock onto while riding the Twin. Pressing on rails and boxes are effortless to get poked out because of the soft flex on the nose and tail.

I actually have a question. I have a butron retro twin (Which I love by the way, Especially with my retro cartel bindings.. SWEET!!!) but everywhere I look it seems that this board didn't sell to well?! Whats the deal?? Awesome board Sierra has it at an Awesome price but not too many sells.. Or maybe Burton just made an overabundance of this board... Somebody tell me what is up?!

I got my Burton Retro Twin from Sierra in February 2006.  I was able de-virginize the board in Zermatt, Switzerland (along with a Ride Timleless, which is in the proper Flagstaff, AZ.  The board was ridden with 2006 Burton P1 bindings.  Here is my review:

Riding 156's and 155's up to this point in my snowboarding, I opted for the Retro 152 for two initial reasons: ease of freestyle movement and so I would not be tempted to leave the park.  Riding in Switzerland, there are a lot of groomers, so being that I was at the top of some big mountains, I "had" to ride it down.  I eventually found a Burton park of all things, being manned by the local reps.  This board was awesome in both areas.  As a freestyle board, this board has great pop and response.  I found transitions on buttering to be quite fun.  This board spins like none I have ever ridden!  In a dozen days last year, this board gave me the confidence to go from solid 180's and not so solid 3's, to solid 3's and a few shaky, but stoked 5's!   I like how the board rides out of features if you can stomp it.  The board, I felt, allowed me flexibility to progress through the whole park.

As far as the rest of the mountain, this board was way better than expected, suprisingly smooth and FAST on groomers, with a fun, playful, not too aggressive of an edge.  I was keeping up with and occasionally leading friends on you typical 156-164's (given it wasn't bomber races).  Over the chop (early morning/late day crusty stuff), this board felt small and got thrown around a bit ...but then again, many boards will do that.  This board will make you wanna turn the whole mountain into a park for sure!  This board does fine in the powder if know how to stay on top.  Trees are good as long as there's no crust, again.

This is without a doubt, the funnest board I have owned.   I was actually pondering the 55 it's so nice!!  I would recommend it to anyone from pure freestyle to freeriders...basically anyone looking to make the mountain more fun everywhere (turn the mountain into a park)..

Pros: SPIN SPIN SPIN!!  Great pop, fun butters, manueverable feel in the park! suprisingly stable and fast over groomers and most of the mountain you'll be on!
Cons:  A little  tough in powder..but it's a 152 (bigger sizes would be fine). Not good on crusties!!

For reference, I had been riding a 2001 Ride - Brushie 156 and  a 1999 Burton 158 Floater for years now..with 2 year old Burton Custom Bindings and 5 year old Customs before that

Honestly, if you can't afford a Custom and am totally into FREESTYLE snowboarding and shredding the rad and doing what most snowboarders do now a days, get the Twin. Take the extra cash and buy a lift ticket.

It's got 10:45 sidewalls, infinite walls, a solid base and solid specs. Graphics are sweet plus its a good weight.

Durable and super fun to butter around.

My final thoughts: Get this board if you need a board for under $500 to take you to that next level or show up that stupid Tanner Hall wanna-be in the park.

alright I ski normally but I used to snowboard before that( i no hate me) anways i got ride my friends twin last weekend just to try snowboarding out again. and wow it was fun. the board was pretty stiff compared to what i was used to before ( my old board was a m3 scotty whitlake sig) it was very stable and predictable in crappier sections on the hill even off of the little tables that i was hitting. i really liked this board it was a blast.

Burton Twin Snowboard

Retail: $450
Freestyle

Review:
The Burton Twin Snowboard ups the ante for hitting massive booters in the terrain park and in the backcountry. This mid-wide freestyle snowboard gives you ridiculously lightweight performance that will take your jibbing beyond the next level. The Twin Snowboard's Park Fly II wood core provides mind-blowing pop while its ultra-lightweight Pro-Tip construction—which utilizes a profiled tip and tail—reduces swing weight for spinning power. This fun-to-ride snowboard has a forgiving, freestyle-focused flex that gives you confidence while learning new tricks without sacrificing stability and control when you go huge. Burly 10:45 sidewalls and Burton's Infinite Ride construction methods means that you'll be riding rails and floating road gaps for years to come.

~ Holy monkey crap! Could this board be any cooler? Doubtful. The graphics are freakin amazing. Snowboards are awesome. Casinos are sweet. When you build a snowboard’s graphics around a casino theme, you easily have one stick packed with steeze. The Park Fly II core will make you spin and jib better…guaranteed. The Pro Tips will make your first 360s easier than you ever imagined. I just mounted my bindings to my Twin, and I can’t stop looking at her as she leans against the wall. I’m constantly doing double-takes as I walk past her. Beautiful. Just beautiful. If you want the ultimate board for assaulting your nearest park, the Burton Twin is just for you.

The twin sucks mine broke so fast.. its not durable at all can hit rails ok not even close to as good as the dominant but cant ride the mountain for shit...O yea n i got this off burton to, i think they r stoppin to make it

Burton after facing many problems with their newly developed Twin they have decided to stop making the board. The twin is a park board made for jibbing but is not durable and breaks very easily. Therefore we have decided to stop making it and let riders decide between our Jeremy Jones and Dominant.

I have the Burton Retro Twin. The one with the two girls on the base. I think the board is pretty rock solid. I'm not very good on the park, so I don't really know if it makes me spin better or not, cause I don't know how to do spins yet. But the jumps that I did go off of felt pretty smooth. At higher speeds, the board definitely got a little chattery. But for the most part, it was a smooth ride. I'd recommend this board to my friends.
