This original 1982 Burton Backhill snowboard is in very good condition. Has a ribbed rubber stomp pad and black binding. Hand made in Vermont with its own registration number. Also has a letter "Z" carved into the mountain graphic on the top. Likely a Zappa fan, this adds a unique element.
Below is the text from the original 1979-80 winter season Burton Boards brochure.
The Backhill model is the ideal all-around board. Adjustable bindings facilitate learning the sport and enable the rider to handle difficult terrain and aerials. A great board in deep powder, yet equally capable in slushy bumps and packed snow.
