Burton Feelgood Flying V
Backed by Kelly Clark, the Burton Feelgood has been the defining force in women’s snowboarding for nearly two decades. Call it a coming of age, or maybe it was just time for a facelift – either way, the Feelgood has donned a whole new look, boasting a unique shape, matched with positively powerful pop for Ferrari-like handing. Directional shaping navigates easily through variable conditions, making this the number one board for conquering all terrain. Available with the stable suspension of camber or the rocker-infused freedom of Flying V, the Feelgood is a perfect match for aspiring pros or just riders who demand every advantage.
