Details

Featuring a name inspired by the Skipjack Tuna (think more shark-bait than sushi), the Burton Skipjack Surf has been watching the radar, and knows exactly where the biggest waves are hiding. With an aggressive take on the earth-surfing approach, and a playful, agile personality, this fish wants to outrun any predator and have the time of its life in the process. Short length and Directional Flat Top combine to deliver a pow floater that turns with ease. The huge nose floats easily through untracked blower, while the swallow tail swims its way out of the deepest swell. The surf pad provides critical traction for surfing sans bindings.

Designed in collaboration with guides from across North America, the NEW Burton Gate Keeper hits the most important aspects of board design for pros (and aspiring pros) who seek the most out of a backcountry deck. Float and speed were the design priority, with a direcitonal camber shape featuring a 15mm taper that turns easy and maintains momentum while breaking trail or blasting through the flats. Capable of slaying any fall line, but not too aggressive, so anyone and everyone can be carried through their big mountain adventure.

Features:

 BEND: DIRECTIONAL FLAT TOP

SHAPE: Directional 20MM TAPER

The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.

A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.

FLEX:  DIRECTIONAL FLEX

This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.

CORE: FSC™ CERTIFIED SUPER FLY® 800G CORE

Lightened up and loaded with pop, our dual-species wood core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.

FIBERGLASS: TRIAX

Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.

 BASE: RECYCLED SINTERED WFO BASE

Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.

ECOZEN® TOPSHEET

A hyper clear co-polyester material that is created from renewable raw materials.

SUPER SAP® EPOXY

Super Sap® is a resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board, which is good in our book.

Infinite Ride:

This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.

Squeezebox:

Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop.

Our most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.

 

Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable—The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton’s). Better yet, all boards with The Channel are fully covered by a 3-year warranty. This means that if you have any issue with any part of the board, even if The Channel is in mint condition, you are covered.
