Enter a new dimension of floatation and freedom on a board that defies convention by blending a powerful nose with a playful tail.
When snowboarders in the ‘70s conjured up visions of the future of board design, they might have imagined something like the Burton Working Stiff. Where most freeride shapes achieve their floaty characteristics through width, taper and a setback stance, this experiment-turned-reality defies convention. A thick nose stiffens the front end, allowing it to skip across the snow, while Filet-O-Flex tech in the tail maintains the kind of agility you’d expect from a swallowtail. Hand shaped at Craig’s Proto Facility in Burlington, Vermont.

In 1977, well before snowboards were allowed in ski resorts, carpenter Jake Burton started making snowboard prototypes in a barn in south Vermont. He didn’t do it to be cool, he found a need, tested it and built it.
At the time, “snurfers” were a trendy backyard toy, but Jake and the early pioneers saw them as an opportunity to bring the joy of surfing to snow.
With countless snowboard innovations over the years, Burton continue to push the boundaries of snowboarding, both through the world’s best products and supporting the world’s best athletes and events.
