burton -ration

There are a couple of "less expensive" boards one might say, in Burton's 2011 line. The Ration at $299 features a twintip shape, Rail Ready™ edges (not a bonus for me but you might like that), a "Negative Core Profile" (meaning thinner core section between the bindings for flex, like that) and a good old camber shape. Nice graphics! Actually hats off here. Less/more etc. [Important update; "least favourite" review of this board at ShayBoarder though 2MuchTang loved it...]

Got a lot of time for Jeremy Jones (both of them actually... for confusion there are 2 Jeremy Joneses in the snowboarding world). He is featured below in a quick clip about the camber shape (that is D. Davis w/ the beard... give it a sec'), and above in the 2008 Burton/Carhartt collab that should have been a slamdunk, though gotta admit he's wearing the hell out of it. #morenowsoon
