The Landlord offers the balance of a twin board with the float and functionality of a directional. Positive camber provides the pop and stability you need to charge through whatever lies in your path. The nose is slightly rockered, allowing Burton to shorten the overall length of the board to improve maneuverability. The steep taper complements the Landlord's directional shape to enhance float on powder days. Last but not least, Pro Tips cut weight to increase edge-to-edge response and lessen rider fatigue. All Family Tree snowboards have GPS coordinates on the graphic that pinpoint where the photo was taken, pretty cool.

Ride Style

All Mountain - Whether you're doing hot laps, tree runs, ripping around or just cruising the park, this board's versatility should allow you to shred virtually anywhere on the mountain in whatever condition.

Slash a turn, tweak a grab, bonk a tree, ollie the cat track and be sure to high five your friends before doing it all over again.

Powder/Freeride - Whether dipping into the trees or hiking out of bounds with your buddies, these boards are designed to get you to the good stuff and handle whatever situation you throw at them.

Typically directional or tapered directional shapes, wide floaty noses, floaty rocker technologies and mellow sidecuts for laying out wide turns when you're in the fluffy white.

Aggressive Riding - Built tough for those on the charge and stepping up to bigger features - whether it's high-speed groomer assaults, heavy hitting jumps, dropping cliffs and chutes, or just ripping the whole mountain a new one - these bindings offer increased stability, power and overall "oomph" to your shred game.

Flex Rating

SoftStiff - Mid-Flex - all-around stability, pop, versatile response and control leaning towards intermediate to advanced riding


Directional - Directional shapes are typically built for all-mountain freeriding and groomer assaults, and often featured on some entry level snowboards. Designed to perform better riding in one direction over the other, these boards usually come equipped with setback stances, a longer or wider nose for float, and a stiffer tail for drive.

Directional snowboards are good for everything from aggressive power riding to laid-back cruising, from steeps and trees to open powder fields and beyond.

Camber Profile

Camber Dominant - A predominately cambered board with a mix of camber profiles. Camber zones offers pop and stability. Rocker offers a little more float for powder along with playfulness for jibbing, while flat zones are a happy medium between camber and rocker.

*Note: profile image exaggerated for visual perspective, please see this brand's specific camber tech for more details

Key Features

Burton Directional Camber - This profile features a camber dominant design, with rocker at the nose allowing for a much shorter and more maneuverable board.

Squeezebox™ High Core Profile - Squeezebox High is a patent-pending technology that transfers energy outward from under your feet, energizing the tip and tail for added snap when executing a turn and ollieing. Energizing rebound in the board's tip and tail, Squeezebox High adds carbon to create the ultra-high performance snap, pop, and response demanded by elite riders.

3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.

Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.

The Channel - The Channel is an exclusive Burton mounting system using a central spine for virtually endless binding adjust-ability. Introduced in 2011, Burton has widened The Channel along with equipping it with the industry standard hardware for enhanced connection to your snowboard and further compatibility with all Burton bindings along with new compatibility for select competitor's bindings such as Union, Forum and many others (Channel-compatible disc may need to be purchased separately for some brands).

The Channel allows you to micro-adjust stance width, angle, and toe-to-heel centering with ease while at the same time dispersing energy for added rebound and snap.


Dragonfly® Core - More than 500 independent laminations, each individually oriented within the core, result in superior weight savings, strength, and energized response.

Multizone™ EGD™ (Engineered Grain Direction) - A Burton exclusive. Manipulating the angles and direction of wood grain placement within the core results in ultimate edge-hold, response, and durability. In four separate zones, the wood grain is perpendicular to the core adjacent to The Channel - the area from which a rider's power emanates - for ultimate strength and edge control.

Infinite™ Ride Construction - A Burton exclusive technology allows their boards to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Spring-loaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.


45° Carbon Highlights Hi-Voltage Stringers - Carbon Highlights optimize each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce overall weight and fine-tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 45° fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride.


Sintered WFO Base - Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.


Pro Tips - A tapered tip and tail thickness that reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

INFINITE RIDE™ - Exclusive technology allows Burton to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.

Burton Family Tree Landlord Snowboard
It: S-rocker, 17mm taper, can't find setback #'s???, OG approved graphics, black base is crux for seeing wax condition. Reportedly it's the modern Malolo everyone's been pining for.

Me: 6' 195, PNW rider, K2 T1 (boa/lace) boots, Diode binders. I have a fish addiction that I'm trying to find a methadone for. Going from my Fish to Custom X makes me feel like I'm riding too clinical anymore – so I hoped the Malolo-esque Landlord would fall somewhere in between.

Conditions: variety pack from rain slurpie to hardpack to 2' untracked.

Landlord (as in "I own it" I'm guessing): fast, as slippery a base as I've ever felt. Wants to draw big open lines. If you can hold down your speed, it can wag tighter arcs just fine but always seems to want to open up. So tech trees are more speed management and less poetic vs the Fish (of course).

Surprising amount of pop and power (testicularity) – surprising b/c other tapered models I've tried seem floppy to suit riders who just want to cruise. Right away I was dolphin airing out of turns w/o trying to, popping off wee hits bigger than expected, confident with full-tilt projection carves, and slashing topturns into big fans of snow. Feels like I won't overload this board even with end-of-season legs.

Switch is easy and stable even in some depth. Carve 360's more seamless than evar. S-rocked nose has no problems or quirks floating deep kimchi or rodeo smashing down tracked out runs. Landed too far back off a cornice or 2 and still stuck it (knowing I wouldn't have on the Fish). Only went over the bars one ill-advised moment. Took some chances and rarely paid for them. Landlord owns it!

The rails: I've always prided myself on being able to carve with a pure rail – I dork out critiquing my line from the chair, wincing when I see signs of squibbing out. The Fish is a really strange animal in that it has the ability to cut into even hardpack like an ice-skate ultimately using only that last 18" of straight rail line. On hardpack I pushed for that feeling on the Landlord too hard and washed out more than once (and I tuned the edges to 88deg). So on hardpack, the taper tapers the feeling of a pure rail somewhat – which makes sense, but bruises my "deepest cuts on the mtn" ego a bit. This isn't to say the board won't comfortably carve hardpack - just that it does so with a bit of squishiness compared to what I prefer. On any softer snow this becomes a non-issue and the board absolutely rips turns super-heroically.

Summary: I'm frothing this board found its way into my quiver before I go on a once-in-a-lifetime heli AK trip next month. Talk about the perfect fit! It is a very different board vs the Fish and Custom X but is exactly what they would hatch if they mated.
