Every winter as the snow starts to get amazing and the shop is in its busiest time of year we also start to focus on our hunt for the best product out there for the following season. At the turn of the New Year we start our traveling throughout the country to analyze, touch, feel, flex, try on, and best of all ride product that will be released in future years.
As we entered our buying season for the 2017 winter we started by heading into our fellow New England state of Vermont. Each year we spend a few great days in the first week of January at Burton Headquarters in Burlington. We’re very fortunate to have a great relationship with many of the departments at the brand.
While we were at Burton we had the honor of receiving an incredible gift. August 2015 marked our 10th anniversary at the store. So with the crazy work of Sales Reps, Management, and some of best Board builders in the world we were presented two one of kind custom Boards mocking the soon to be Skelton Key. At lunch we were brought into the “Craig’s Lab” where all prototypes are created and received these amazing boards. We rode them all season in Maine to British Columbia and had a blast on them. Much love to the whole crew at Headquarters. We can’t wait for the Skeleton Key board shape to be released in the Burton line and available for everyone to enjoy.
