Burton Barracuda - Head to the backcountry and push the boundaries of freeride with the all-wheel drive power of the Burton® Barracuda!
A board for any terrain or condition.
Freeride-focused S-Rocker™ bend improves float while maintaining momentum and stability through deep-driving pow turns and variable conditions.
Shape is designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip and terrain or condition.
15 mm taper for a wider nose than tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation.
Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Super Fly II™ core places stronger and lighter wood in specific areas of the core providing snap, strength and reduced weight for uncompromised board feel and response with Dualzone™ EGD™ in which the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for superior edge hold and added durability.
infuses 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 open all season in any condition.
Triax™ Fiberglass provides versatile flex and excellent response from light to high-impact shreds.
Raduction design optimizes every element of the board allowing you to downsize 2 to 3 cm from normal board length.
Frostbite Edges are beneath your bindings and extend out slightly for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. While Frostbite Edges are always hungry for hard-pack, they remain ever forgiving in softer conditions.
Carbon I-Beam™ is an ultra-light carbon backbone to increase pop and longitudinal snap.
The Channel is snowboarding's ultimate connection - offering the fastest, easiest way to mount your bindings with the most stance options possible. Compatible with all major binding companies.
Pro Tip™ design utilizes a tapered tip and tail thickness that reduces swing weight and creates a more playful feel.
Infinite Ride™ is created by overbuilding the board, allowing the Burton-exclusive technology to maximize pop and strength. It is then placed in a machine that breaks in the board for you. From first day to last, this board will maintain its flex, pop and performance.
Made in Austria.


  • Sintered WFO base combines high and low temperature-reactive waxes with a durable and absorbent, high-density sintered material, making it superfast and low maintenance


  • Raduction rides longer; downsize 2 to 3 cm from normal length
  • Nug Raduction optimizes every element of the board, from flex profile to sidecut, letting you downsize up to 10cm from your normal board length
  • Nug Raduction boards ride the same as a traditional length board, but offer a surprisingly stable and responsive ride; Burton recommends sizing Barracuda down 2 - 3cm

Traction and Grip:

  • Frostbite Edges grip onto ice and hardpack


  • The Channel system offers unlimited, on-the-fly stance adjustability, enhances board feel and is compatible with EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc® bindings
  • Triax Fiberglass flex and response for an all-mountain ride
  • Wood core is snappy, powerful and durable; dual-zone wood grains, positioned along the toe and heel edges perpendicular to the core, enhance edge hold and add strength
  • Edges extend out slightly beneath the bindings for tremendous edge hold in hard, icy conditions, but they remain playful and forgiving in softer conditions
  • Super Fly II Core with Dualzone EGD
  • The Channel lets you fine-tune your stance width to the millimeter, and then dial in your toe-to-heel centering and rotate your angles in one fell swoop
  • S-Rocker™ applies a unique contour to the Barracuda; entry rocker extends from the nose to under your front foot, and then transitions to camber between the feet
  • Pro-Tip tapered tip reduces swing weight for easier spins
  • Super Fly II Core is strong, lightweight, and poppy
  • Fiberglass in the topsheet provides versatile flex and response so you can shred your big mountain descents
  • Slightly tapered shape and directional flex combine with S-Rocker to create a floater that goes up, over and through anything
  • Lightweight Carbon I-Beam™ riding up the board's spine adds to board's longitudinal snap
  • Compressing the camber causes the entry rocker to naturally lift the nose, improving float while maintaining speed through deep-driving pow turns and variable conditions
  • Burton snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
  • Tapered thickness in tip and tail reduces swing weight and improves powder flotation
  • Infinite Ride eliminates break-in time and provides consistent feel every season
  • Carbon I-Beam maximizes pop and snap

True to its name, the Burton Barracuda is a ravenous creature, covering every square inch of the mountain hunting for undisturbed pow stashes. It's packed with all the tech you could ask for, from Burton's Channel system for easy binding setup, to Frostbite edges for crazy grip and locked-in turns. And the directional tapered shape means tons of float on the deep days, and added stability for smashing through crud when the hill's getting tracked out.

The Barracuda is built on Burton's Fish-inspired S Rocker shape, which puts camber under your feet for powerful turns, and mates it with a rockered nose for effortless float when it's dumping. And that float gets kicked up a notch by the tapered shape. Basically, the nose is 15 mm wider than the tail; that means no more back-leg burn, so you can ride longer and harder. The Frostbite edges bump out underneath your feet to help you carve trenches when you get it on edge. You'll find that it's helpful when traversing across groomers and ice on your way to your favorite hidden stashes.

Like much of Burton's lineup, the Barracuda features Nug Raduction, and that means you can size it down from what you'd normally ride. Burton recommends dropping 2-3 cm off the overall length, which nets you more responsive handling without giving up stability. The Pro-Tip tip and tail reduce swing weight, which ups the responsiveness even further. This board is built to haul ass, so it's only appropriate that it gets a sintered WFO base, which holds tons of wax and slides super fast. Top it off with Burton's Infinite Ride, and you've got a board that feels broken-in, straight out of the box, and stays that way for the life of the board.


The Burton Barracuda Snowboard is a brand new board featuring a lot of the great Burton features you have grown to love. Comes with the Gondola package that has set the mark for weight savings, speed and strength and features the Channel which focuses power through a central connection that evenly distributes energy for added rebound and snap and also lets you micro-adjust your stance width and angles. The Frostbite edges handle all snow conditions, works a lot like all wheel drive on a car. The S-Rocker is an entry rocker that extends from the nose to under your front foot, then transitions to camber between your feet. Compressing the camber causes the entry rocker to naturally lift the nose, which improves float while maintaining momentum and stability through deep-driving pow turns and variable conditions. Burton recommends that when sizing the Barracuda that you go down 2 to 3cm from your normal board length.

The Burton Barracuda Snowboard was designed for free-riders who endlessly search for powder. The rocker is longer in the tip which gives you tons of float in soft snow. There's still some camber in the middle so you get the grip you need for tight turns. Raduction design means you'll size down by 2 to 3 cm with the Barracuda. You'll get the same stability and control, but in a much more agile package. For riding at high speeds, Burton added Triax fiberglass and a Carbon I-Beam. Frostbite edges engage when icy conditions are present.

When you hop onto the Burton Barracuda Snowboard, limits that were once put in place by conditions or terrain are magically lifted to give you unparalleled access to the whole hill while experiencing performance from another world of shredding.

Burton Barracuda Reviews:


I took this board out for a spin today at the Bird with plenty of fresh on the ground. What I can say is the Barracuda is a serious pow slaying machine. Surprisingly, I was able to ride switch no problem like it was a twin shaped board.
I love the S-Rocker shape...it keeps you afloat no matter what. It also seems to naturally float compared to my flying V rocker. The flying V requires a bit of leaning back in the deep but not that much...
I can't comment how it does when conditions suck (hard pack/ice) as I've only ridden the pow with it.
And....the graphics are nice and old school.

I have the 2013 model. Yeah this board is awesome on powder. What's amazing is how ridiculously fast and stable this board is on hard pack. LOVE IT!!
