RIP Jake Burton

Postby Heid the Ba » Fri Nov 22, 2019 9:16 am

One of the big names of snowboarding has died. You might not know him but you will have seen Jake Burton's name on clothing and kit. He turned a very niche hobby into a world wide phenomenon. He gave this mere mortal many hours of pleasure on the slopes and I'll raise a glass to him over New Year when I'm in the Alps.
Get it up ye.

No trees were killed in the posting of this message.
However, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
