I've been on that board for the past 2 seasons, and I added some Burners this year. Before the Freebird, I was on the S-Series. The Freebird is a HUGE improvement over the s-series. I was going to keep the s-series as a rock split, but after riding the freebird, I never wanted to touch the s-series again. Freebird + Burners cut about 4 lbs of the weight of my setup. It floats better, has MUCH better response, and makes the shitty east coast ride down icy, narrow hiking trails back to the car way more enjoyable. My only gripe is that it could be significantly stiffer. I would love if they could make it stiffer without losing the agility that the board has.

Sooo. I went to the flagship store today for a b-day gift for the lady smuggler and I got a hands on of the '13 freebird with burners. They had a sPliff too. Apparently jake left his toys sit out. Anyway the free bird at quick glance appeared to have a VERY subtle s rocker with a freakin huge ole' shovel on it. Felt very firm and quite heavy. Very impressed. FYI looks like some snow in the greens this weekend
