From the original 1984 Burton catalog:
This Backhill Snowboard was the top of the Burton Line until 1982 and has been the best selling snowboard in the world over the past five years. What has made this board so popular is its outstanding performance and quality at such a reasonable price.
We have improved the Backhill Snowboard this year by widening the board and moving the front binding up slightly. We have also added a heel strap for advanced riding. The Backhill Board is now more versatile than ever and it continues to offer more value, dollar for dollar, than any other snowboard available.
