    Dec 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: See Review
    Cons: See Review

    Summary: No, that would not be such a good idea. Once you try out the Burton Floater you might all of a sudden get the feeling that you are floating. Pretty cool, huh? Anyway I tried my experience with the Burton Floater when I went on my vacation to ... read more

  • 2002 Floater still dominates the big feet board solutions

    Mar 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great edge to edge transfers, handles very well for a fat board
    Cons: Graphics are horrendous, top layer chips easily

    Summary: I purchased a 2002 Burton Floater for the sole reason that my previous board was too thin for my size 12 feet. I was catching my heel edge on extreme turns and when I stepped on and broke the binding on it, I used that as an excuse for a new board. I ... read more

  • Burton Floater 67'

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Does what the name implies
    Cons: Didn't hold up to the abuse. Maybe too much abuse.

    Summary: I rode a 99 floater about 50 days last year at Snowbird, UT. I'm lucky enough to have a few boards for different occasions. This was my powderboard. I had many a first-tram at the Bird' and was glad the floater was what I was riding when I did. Has ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light Weight, study and wide base
    Cons: Average Top Sheet design (Doesn't matter to the ride)

    Summary: No Joke, this board is Big. Big for the big guys. I am 6'2" and tipping the scales at 220lbs, and this is the most stable, yet light Freeride board around (I have the 167 cm). Aside from the average top sheet design (which doesn't matter anyway) ... read more

    Pros: wide, flexible
    Cons: price, you pay for what you get though

    Summary: I myself am in the midst of trying to attain a Floater. It is an awsome board, especially for someone with big feet. I wear a size twelve to heel and toe drag is a constant problem. I've tried gas pedals and that works for the most part but i still ... read more

    Pros: Beauty, FUN, it rocks!!!

    Summary: Who doesn't like powder? The kids love it, keeps them diaper rash free, so why can't we love it? I pray for it, dream about it, and cannot live without it.And while many shutter at the sound of the salt trucks, I cannot resist the sensations. The rush of ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light and strong
    Cons: Price

    Summary: I have had mine for a couple years now. The first thing I noticed about it is that it is light. I bought because I love to surf in the powder and the Floater gives me enough area to stay a float in the powder. The weight distribution is very even and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Extra width = no toe drag for big footers, Responsive, Extra width and flexibility makes landing cake
    Cons: Flexibility and extra width makes board choppy in the crud and bumps at high speeds

    Summary: I have been riding a Floater 163 (1999 model) since last year. This is an excellent all around board for riders with big feet. The side-cut is progressive enough enabling sharp turns without difficulty. The length of the 163, coupled with its width, ... read more

    Jan 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great flexibility
    Cons: graphics are kind of lame

    Summary: This board was made for the taller people of the world. The Burton Floater has a wider middle for those with big feet(like me). It's a stable and comfortable board that is flexible too. You can ride this board as a beginner or more experienced no ... read more

    Pros: Easy powder riding
    Cons: not too well in a half pipe.

    Summary: I puchased this board last year and was amazed at how much easier it was for me to ride on days when the powder is every where. Fields where I used to bog down in I now just "float on by". And on days when the powder is scarce this board ... read more

    Pros: all around good
    Cons: requires burton centered stance

    Summary: This board combines the lightness of all Burton boards with widness for those of us that have big feet. The board has awesome flex! The base on this is unbleviably fast! I used to have a Sims All moutain 50 I thought this was the sickest board ever, ... read more

    Pros: great for powder, good overall ride, sizes from 153 to 167 available
    Cons: not as light as the FL, turning isn't optimal

    Summary: Another entry in the growing category of wide boards. I've ridden this board as well as the K2 Fatbob and I think that the Floater gives a slighter better ride. I used this board while in Utah after there was a huge dumping of powder. I have to say that ... read more
