With pro-level technology and an engineered-for-kids flex, the Burton Kids' Punch Snowboard will take the next generation of boarders into the stratosphere. The Punch Snowboard combines key elements from Burton's high-end boards like a fast and durable Lightspeed base and a Super Fly II wood core with a kid-specific construction lightened up and loaded with pop, this vertical sandwich of hard and soft woods saves weight for maximum performance in a small package. This lightweight board's forgiving flex makes it easy to learn to carve and gives junior the response to charge hard. With this versatile snowboard, the mini shredder will be learning to turn at the beginning of the season and sliding rails by the end. EGD stands for engineered grain direction and the wood is placed at a 45 degree angle under the snowboard binding, thereby providing an optimal combination of edge grip and durability. By running this wood grain perpendicular to the core only under the bindings, both carving precision and overall snow feel are greatly enhanced. The lightspeed base gives speed and strength in a low maintenance base.
