I like it enough that I bought another one at the end of the last season. I always travel with two boards and the Deep Thinker is in the bag every time. There was only a couple days last season in Utah where it was so deep I would have liked a little more length, but the 163 length is really good for just about every condition for my riding style. My friends that I travel with are all skiers, so the lines we take trough trees are usually super tight and I can turn that board on a dime. One thing I really like about it, I can set my bindings back almost to the limit of the channels and it doesn't ride all wonky when you hit cat tracks or firmer snow. I would say it is a great all-arounder.

Thanks for the info, that's good feedback. 

I'm looking to add an all-arounder to the quiver this year, and I'm sort of debating between the Deep Thinker, the Super 8 or a Nitro Mountain.  There is also a part of me that is thinking of saying fuck it and just grabbing a 163 Squash, but that is a pretty different board.

It's been a long time since I've purchased a Burton board, but the DT looks pretty frigging nice.

i got the dt start of last winter and felt like i was missing something.

tried it back to back with a FA and sold it straight away and bought my 5th FA 

imo the DT feels like it has more rocker in the nose and feels like less board underfoot.,

i had the dt 57 and bought another fa 59.

4 of my friends ride the DT and they all love it.

The man with the most style gets the board with the most boring graphics? Well deserved anyway.

One of the most stylish riders ever. Good pick capita. And the ltd board looks fine. Sad this fucking thing is not camber.

Rocket man, for real. The amount of pop he generates is insanse. Surprised it took this long for someone to sign him officially, happy for him.

Yeah, well deserved. I kinda like the graphics, I think they'll pop off on the snow. But doesn't he mostly ride the SuperDOA in the video?

Holy shit, popping over mountains off a side hit. Fuuuuck. 

Not to mention those space x level tranny finding landing skills..... Elon Musk could learn a thing or two from this grinning french man.

I had a demo 19/20 one and the camber went pretty far past the inserts, didn't feel like it had SUPER exaggerated early rise/rockered tips to it.

LOL, my sentiments exactly. I'm assuming he's mastered this from his pipe background, but still boggles my mind how he finds that tiny bit of tranny after boosting to the moon on those sidehits.

Yeah, he takes those little trannies that feel really good when I land on them from four feet up and sticks twenty foot airs on them like it's nothing.  He's unreal.

He must be one of those guys with naturally robot-like knees and ankles.

I was just talking about that to a friend, he blasts 20 feet into a 1 foot tall tranny..so precise every time, if I mishandled that (if I was even skillful to air anything that high) I’d die on impact
