In this review Joey takes the Burton Process for a spin in classic spring conditions at Thredbo and finds a board perfect for the type of snow we’ll have over the next few weeks. The Process sits somewhere between the Custom and the Name Dropper in Burton’s range, “a little softer than the Custom a bit more ‘freestyly’, but really good at high speed.
In a nutshell, Joey reckons the Process is, “Playful when you want it to be, but stable when you need it to be.”
Known to some as “Snow Guru Joe”, Joe Stanco has a passion for snow, snowboarding and everything that goes with it. Joey is an expert boot fitter, amateur snowboarder and product tester with “a passion for helping others find the right gear.” He founded Joeys Myokoin Myoko Kogen, Japan last year, a service/demo centre for locals and travellers and during the Australian season he does his thing out of the ESS stores Jindabyne.
When he’s not fitting boots and giving expert advice to customers Joey is on the mountain doing a bit of “R&D” on the latest snowboards. Whether you are into pow, park or shredding the groomed, Joey can recommend the right board for you.
