Words by Burton:

Burton Elite Series Snowboards

The Elite Series is designed for the beginner to low intermediate snowboard who is looking to learn and improve on a quality board. The reduced bevel (now 1.25mm) and new variable flex pattern of the Elite make it an wasy board to turn and learn the basics on.  The Elites also feature our new core and outside laminates which decrease vibration and increase binding strength by as much as 400% over last year’s models. Now available with Fastex or buckle bindings.

Burton Elite 140 Snowboard

The Burton Elite 140 Snowboard is now designed specifically for the rider under 130 pounds (60 kilos). We have tightened the stance and significantly loosened the flex pattern on these board to make it ideal for smaller and lighter riders.  The addition of a swallow tail and forward placement of the bindings also contribute towards making the new Elite 140 the ultimate performing snowboard for its rider profile.

Rider Profile – Beginner to low intermediate, lightweight rider who wants a high performance snowboard for the use on a variety of snow conditions from hardpack and ice to fresh powder.

Burton Elite 150 Snowboard

Burton Elite 150 Snowboard

The Burton Elite 150 Snowboard is now a snowboard that entry level riders over 130 pounds (60 kilos) can both learn and excel on.  With the increased flexibility, especially in the nose of the board, the 150 can now handle bumps and powder with ease.  The board is still beefy enough, however, to carve solid turns on bulletproof hardpack. The responsiveness and versatility of the Elite 150 are what made it ideal for the inexperienced rider.

Rider Profile – Beginner to low intermediate snowboarder who wants a board that will not only be easy to learn on, but will be capable of handling difficult terrain in any snow condition once the rider has learned the fundamentals.

Quiksilver | True Wetsuit

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UutiBRDxJ0U&w=780]

Business Wetsuit

1 - quiksilver-clothing-logo-120Quiksilver Japan jumped head first into the business to active wear segment with the True Wetsuit.  There isn’t much worse than cramming behind an ocean front desk counting down the ticks until punch-out.  Imagine being able to stride from work to water with zero transition time to change clothes.  Quiksilver has done just that; created a business suit designed to give powerpoint presentations that can also snap slashes on tight barrels within the time it takes to get from the office to the beach.

Finding a perfect surfboard can take a tremendous amount of time, as does finding the flawless suit.  The Quiksilver True Wetsuit is available in three killer styles.  The BLK (black) and NAV (navy) suits are cut for business and surfing whereas the Tux (black) is strictly for partying and surfing.

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0d1oDResoOo&w=780]

Cut with a modern slim silhouette the pants and jacket flatter the fit, but with a 2mm thickness anyone can slide into a size range from medium to extra large.  GBS (Glued & Blind Stitching) seams assist the regulation of heat while the cuffs freely filers new water throughout the single breasted double button suit.

The DRYFLIGHT 4WAY fabric that was developed in conjunction with Scotchgard and 3M makes up the water repellent and stain/dirt proof Quiksilver True Wetsuit Dress Shirt.  The shirt could actually be worn on a day to day basis – it’s soft to the touch and has a firm collar to frame any well tied knot.

Sublimation transfer printing allows for bold colors on the ties.  A refined finish starts as a 2mm neoprene ultra stretch jersey fabric and gracefully knots with a center dimple.

Draping over a hanger around $2,500 USD the True Wetsuit is a commodity worth its weight in gold.  Whether in a boardroom or on a board the Quiksilver True Wetsuit will be rippling waves for years to come, make sure to get one before the tide dies.
