At Burton, "Built on Boards" is a philosophy. A philosophy that represents the brand’s motivation to always push innovation to higher levels, to design board prototypes that are adapted to the specific needs of the world’s best snowboarders and to honor Burton’s iconic heritage and permanent mark in the history of snowboarding.


Burton is on fire this year! With their next-level ecological initiatives and the introduction of their iconic Step-On system, the Vermont based brand has positively surpassed the limits of what’s imaginable in the snowboarding world. But if you think we're going to stop here, you're wrong. We couldn’t talk about Burton without mentioning their legendary boards, which is how they built their rock solid reputation. If there is one thing Burton knows all about, it's definitely boards.

It all happens at Craig's

The «Craig» is a snowboard prototype laboratory and a place where creation and design stand at the cutting edge of technology. Named in honor of the great Craig Kelly (RIP), it’s in this mythical place that all the great Burton minds meet year after year to develop the epic boards we know and love. In a way, that's where Burton's Built on Boards philosophy was born.
