Burton is one of the most popular brands in the snowboarding world and there’s a reason, they’re the best! Almost every snowboarder you’ll see on the mountain has something Burton on. It’s one of, if not, my favorite companies and that says a lot. I’ve been around the block and I’ve only had a handful of times where I wasn’t 100% percent satisfied, but those are very rare cases.
Burton has some of the biggest names in snowboarding behind them, like Shawn White, Taylor Gold and Jeremy Jones. Burton pushes the limits when it comes to innovation, design, research and development, worldwide contests and customer service. Burton has established themselves as one of the pioneers that got the snowboarding world to where it is today.
The only worry that some might have about Burton is that their fearless leader Jake Burton has recently been Diagnosed a type of Guillan-Barre Syndrome called Miller Fisher Syndrome. Miller Fisher Syndrome is a rare immune disease where the body attacks its nerves and leaves the patient in a, sometimes permanent, paralysis. This news hit the snowboarders like a ton of bricks, Jake Burton was one of the nicest people you will ever meet and had a mind like no other. Without Jake Burton at the head of Burton, customers are very worried where the company will end up. But if you know Jake, you know that he isn’t calling it a quits, he’s gonna fight the hell out of this. Good luck Jake!
On to better news Burton is one of the best brands around the winter sport and they plan to keep it that way! BURTON BURTON BURTON!
