In the 1960s, Sherman Poppen created the first snurfer, two glued skis set with a rope for his daughter who sledged while standing. Competitions were born, and in the 70s, Jake Burton Carpenter took an improved version of the snurfer to one of these events, with an extra foot clip. Snow was born!
Jake Burton created his own brand in 1977, Burton. The first snowboard was made of wood. In American ski resorts, snowboarding was banned. Jake therefore had to convince these stations to accept this practice. Thing done for the Suicide Six station in Vermont in 1982. He quickly realized that another board was needed because the grip was not there. The “Performer” was born with metal edges. It was then that snowboarding was recognized as a real sport.
Burton sponsors pro riders such as Peter Bauer, Jean Nerva, Craig Kelly… Burton is also a brand committed to respecting the environment.
