You pay a lot to get less these days and Burton’s Mystery uses ‘micro milled ingredients and carbon’ to help cut down weight for their top of the line board. Even so, they’ve kept a lot of the tech a secret for this project, and we wonder whether their ambiguous descriptions of this board are part of it’s appeal as well as it’s styling – you can just imagine the fanboys: ‘I don’t know what it is but i want it!’. There’s a low maintenance ‘methlon base’, ‘mystery glass’ in place of the fibreglass and a multizone EDG core which links into Burton’s channel mount system.

If you’re looking for fancy shapes and profiles you may well be disappointed as this has standard camber, true twin and only a slightly shaved nose and tail. Yep, most of the mystery is on the inside of this little number…

    you cannot compare a semi industrial board that costs maybe 500 euros to produce and sells 3000 euros to a board that really costs 2500 euros to produce ( 50-60 working hours on each board)…Godess is marketing, miura is real craftmanship..maybe you haven’t seen one in real!

    I’d definitely check out The Whip!
