In honor of the recent e-tradtion of throwing it back on Thursday, we dug up this old footage posted by FirstOnBoard. The interview, recorded after the “first ever” snowboard competition, shows a young Jake Burton showing off his double finned wooden Burton direction and explaining how the bindings work. Gold.
This fall, Burton presents [SNOWBOARDING], a four episode web series highlighting the riding in four distinct environments: Backcountry, Street, Resort, and Women’s. Featuring the riding of Jeremy Jones, Mark Sollors, Mikey Rencz, Jussi Oksanen, Danny Davis, Mark McMorris, Mikkel Bang, Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter, Ethan Deiss, Zak Hale, Kimmy Fasani and more riding in locations all around the world. Here’s the teaser for “Backcountry”.
The new Burton gear is here for Spring 2013 – different season, same spritit. Burton’s Spring collection captures the spirit of snowboarding in styles for hot days and long nights. Catch Spring fever with new woven tops, tanks, shorts, hats, accessories, packs, and more. Here are a couple of the things we’re most hyped on.
Locked and loaded, but mostly loaded, the Burton Beeracuda over the shoulder beverage holder was recently declassified by the government, the blueprint given to civilians. Koozie up front keeps one additional piece of ammo within immediate range of your muzzle.
Usually spring is the time when most riders start to hang up their gear, but for riders like Mark McMorris, Mikkel Bang, Seppe Smits, Roope Tonteri, Werni Stock, Marko Grilc, and Peetu Piiroinen, it’s the time to start laying down the hammers. Those guys sure tore the spring kickers at Heavenly and Sun Valley a new one. Check out all the carnage in part 1 of the Spring Park Sessions presented by Burton.
The snowboard bindings respected by the masters of snow, Burton fuses empowering performance and total comfort into one with the Cartel EST. This binding is pushing dudes like Mikkel, Kazu, and Rencz to crush all restraints, and Everest-like mountain peaks. The super lively baseplate and new AutoCant cushioning creates mind-reading response from park laps to Banshee-like urban brawlers. A set-it-and-forget-it strap package keeps your dogs comfortably caged…while the anatomically canted Living Hinge hi-back activates your edges and turns up precision and style.
The Burton Cartel EST Binding (Toxic Green) has a Response Rating of 7…and rides exclusively with Burton boards featuring The Channel.
