Local Artist Designs Custom Snowboards

by

Here the realms of sport and art mix, but we're OK with that. Either way you slice it-arts news or rec-this is cool: BW has recently learned that local man Jeremy Lanningham (incidentally, one of our illustrators) has designed the new custom snowboards for Burton Snowboard's 2006 line.

Jake Burton founded Burton Snowboards in 1977 and it was the first snowboard factory. In the company's early years, the business was based out of Jake's Vermont farm but now has headquarters in Burlington, Vermont, and offices in Innsbruck, Austria, and Tokyo, Japan.
