Back in 1977 when Jake Burton designed his first board, he probably could not have imagined how his work would launch the multi-billion dollar sport of snowboarding. This art print features one of Burton's patent drawings from the mid-1990s. Compared to early prototypes like the one featuring on our vintage 1970s snowboard print, this version is a huge upgrade in technology and ride.
My kids grew up riding in this era. They were pretty fortunate to learn on the vastly improved technology introduced by Burton, and many other companies over the years. Their constant tinkering, imagination, and improvements made riding more and more enjoyable and accessible to generations to come, and transformed the skiing industry.
If you love snowboarding and the history behind it, or just love anything vintage, this piece is for you. It makes a great addition to any cottage or home decor.
