The Burton Flight Attendant is a great deck to have if you live near a resort that gets dumped on. If you don’t live in one of these regions, you might want to consider adding this board to your quiver solely for powder days or vacations. That said, it can easily handle most parts of the mountain. The Burton Flight Attendant was designed and crafted for Burton team rider, Nicolas Muller. If you don’t know much about Muller, I highly suggest you check out his backcountry reels. He is a true genius in the trees and can rip some pretty epic features. This board is his weapon.
The directional shape and tapered nose allows for increased stability at high speeds and effortless float in the powder. Buttering was not an issue, but I wouldn’t say it was easy. You really have to press. The flex is a harder 6 and directional. It has a snappier tail with a more forgiving nose. The Burton Flight Attendant is not for the faint of heart. It will float like a dream and rip like a mustang, but you have to know what you’re doing.
We recommend this deck to any intermediate to advanced riders to take their creativity to the next level. Turn the mountain into your playground with this board. If you need inspiration, take my advice on watching some Nicolas Muller clips. If nothing else, it will make you want this board that much more.
“Designed to be a terrain-slaying alternative to more traditional twin shapes, the NEW Burton Flight Attendant is a freethinker that dissects both pow and hardpack.”
