Everything done at Burton started in the mountains. From getting the most out of every journey to chasing snow around the globe, Burton has charged ahead to innovate and change the way people enjoy the outdoors since day one.
With the Custom, Speed Date, Kilroy Process, and Yeasayer boards as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Burton demonstrated—once again—exactly why they are one of the most well-known and well-respected companies in the industry.

One of the most widely ridden and widely praised boards over the past 20 years, Burton's Custom continually demonstrates itself as a true do-it-all deck capable of withstanding the test of time. Its ageless design features positive camber beneath a slightly directional twin profile, giving the Custom unmatched power, stability and edge control in any conditions. Whether blasting sidehits, railing high-speed carves on corduroy, or ripping through unforgiving chunder, the Custom is ready to perform and proves it.
Sizes: 151, 156, 161
The newest member of Burton's Family Tree line, the Speed Date has been commonly referred to as "the banked slalom board." With a directional camber profile that incorporates 7mm of taper in conjunction with an aggressive sidecut, the Speed Date quickly displayed a knack for deep, powerful turns in high gear. It's a board meant to be ridden fast, from the Legendary Banked Slalom course at Baker to your local resort, while allowing surf-inspired turns when you do decide to downshift.
Sizes: 135, 145, 148, 152, 155, 159
A classic, true twin park board built for all-terrain destruction, Burton's Kilroy Process is playful enough to tackle features big and small while also proving powerful and stable enough for the rest of the resort. Its versatility is the result of a medium-flexing, positive camber profile that incorporates Burton's Squeezebox technology—strategical milling that creates a precisely tuned flex. The result is easy to ride with ample snap and stability, making the Kilroy Process a viable freestyle option for both beginners and advanced riders.
Sizes: 140, 144, 148, 152
A newcomer to the Burton's women's line, the Yeasayer quickly proved to be a favorite beneath our testers' feet—and not only because of its subtle, aesthetically pleasing graphics. With a twin, Flat Top cambered design, featuring a flat profile between the feet with early rise in the tip and tail, the Yeasayer provides the catch-free, powder-floating ride of a rockered board without being too loose when you're ready to charge through steeps or hairy hardpack. It's a playful deck that aims to help its rider progress, whether that's in the park or in the powder.
This past spring, TransWorld SNOWboarding hosted the inaugural STOMP Summit. With Aspen as the venue, STOMP set out to provide an engaging platform for brands, retailers, and media to interact, offering each the opportunity to experience and understand this season’s most sought after gear firsthand, on the mountain. Featuring products from the brands in attendance, every item has received its chance to shine on-hill, as we took over one of the world’s most iconic resorts.
