The Fascinating History of Snowboarding: From Sherman Poppen to Jake Burton Carpenter

In the 1960s, Sherman Poppen revolutionized winter sports by creating the first snurfer, a board made up of two skis stuck together with a rope, intended for his daughter who was a fan of standing sledging. This innovation marked the start of a major evolution in the world of snowboarding.

The Emergence of Snowboarding Thanks to Jake Burton Carpenter in the 70s

Snurfing competitions proliferated, and in the 1970s, Jake Burton Carpenter introduced an improved version at an event by adding a foot strap. This is how modern snowboarding was born, marking a new era in winter sports.

The Rise of Burton: Pioneer and Innovator

In 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded his own brand, Burton, further revolutionizing snowboarding. The first model of snowboard was made of wood, but the ban on this practice in American ski resorts encouraged Jake to prove its legitimacy. In 1982, the Suicide Six resort in Vermont finally accepted snowboarding, propelling Burton to pioneer status.

Burton's "Performer": The Metal Edge Revolution

To compensate for the lack of grip, Burton created the "Performer" with metal edges, marking the moment when snowboarding was recognized as a legitimate sport. The brand is also becoming a pioneer in terms of environmental commitment, using recycled and organic materials and Bluesign textiles.

Burton's Environmental Commitment

Burton not only innovates in snowboarding, but is also committed to respecting the environment. Its products are made from recycled and organic materials, while its Bluesign textile guarantees the absence of dangerous products, pollution, and water waste.
