General Description: Hands down the easiest board out there, the Burton Genie is perfect for aspiring riders looking to build a foundation before moving on to a more performance-oriented deck like the Social or Feather. Like stepping on a magic carpet, the Genie silences your fears, magically teaching balance and board control from the first time you strap in. Easy Rider combines a soft, mellow flex with a convex base for a virtually-catch free riding experience, while Flat Top and a newly improved shape provide a stable platform that's effortlessly maneuverable. The Channel™ mounting system gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup with any binding out there (not just Burton’s).
Rocker Type: Flat Top - A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.
Flex: Twin Flex - The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile regular or switch.
Shape: Twin Shape - Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.
Core: FSC™ Certified Fly® 900G Core - Our classic tip to tail wood core, constantly improved upon in terms of flex, feel, pop, and strength.
Base: Extruded Base - Speed, strength, and graphical pop in a base that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing
Additional Features: Easy Rider - Easy Rider on the Genie, Chopper®, Chicklet™, Riglet, and After School Special gives riders an incredibly soft and forgiving board that’s virtually impossible to catch an edge on. With a convex base that lifts the edges off the snow and a super soft flex, these boards make it easy to learn balance and board control.
We recommend riders downsize 2-4cm from the board size they normally ride.
