Burton has been around almost as long as snowboarding itself. Founded in 1977 by Jake Burton when he began developing prototype snowboards in the mountains of Vermont, the brand has grown over almost forty years to become synonymous with the sport, developing equipment and clothing that pushes the limits of possibility. In the pursuit of the perfect connection between rider, boot, binding and snowboard, Burton snowboards have found themselves on the top step of the podium for countless contests from the earliest competitions to the Winter Olympics.
