The 1987 Burton Elite Snowboard is a symbol of the snowboarding revolution that occurred in the '80s. From a countercultural activity to a legitimate sport, snowboarding became accessible to everyone with the introduction of this board, which welcomed many riders to the fold. This retro edition board celebrates the design that made standing sideways possible for all. The board's modern materials, throwback graphics, and original shape, including its trademark swallowtail, make it a nostalgic tribute to the board that kicked snowboard progression into high gear. So, head back to the future with this iconic board and experience the history of snowboarding.

  • Directional Flex: Directional Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions
  • Super Fly® 800G Core: Super Fly® 800G Core is a dual-species wood core that is loaded with pop and alternates between hard and soft woods to reduce overall weight without limiting performance
  • Dualzone™ EGD™: Dualzone EGD engineered wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones perpendicular to the core for more edge-hold, response, and strength
  • Triax™ Fiberglass: Triax Fiberglass provides versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred
  • Sintered WFO Base: Sintered WFO Base infuses specially formulated wax deep into the pores of the extra-absorbent, high-density recycled sintered material, making it ultradurable for riding all season in any condition
  • The Channel®: The Channel® Board Mount is designed to help dial in the perfect stance and is compatible with all major bindings
  • Directional Flat Top: Directional Flat Top Bend features a flat profile overall with a rocker nose for the stability and effortless float perfect for deep days on surfy terrain
  • All Mountain Directional Shape: Directional Shape is designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition
  • 20mm Taper: 20mm Taper promotes floating and turning with a shorter width on the tail that drops it down and a wider width at the nose that pops it up
