Founded in 1977 by Jake Burton, Burton Snowboards was still a relatively young company when this ad ran in magazines in 1983. We did not have any really big hills near where I lived growing up, but a friend of mine had one of these early snowboards as well its predecessor the snurfer. We all would take turns trying to go down our too short hills and crashing either as soon as we started or if were lucky into the fence at the bottom of the hill.
