Are you into snow boarding at all? How much of a fan of it are you — and how often do you snow board? Are you a novice or an expert? Regardless of your experience in snow boarding, you probably know enough about the major brands out there — like Burton Snowboards, a major company that’s been in play for 40 years. “Burton Snowboards – 40 Years Forward” explores the history of one of snowboards’ best companies.
- As anniversaries in snowboarding go, 40 years is about as big as it gets. In our sport’s relatively short life, no company can claim to have had as profound and lasting an impact as Burton Snowboards.
