This old vintage Burton snowboard is in original condition. Very few original Londonderry's come up for sale. We have this in our possession and verify it’s authenticity. This was purchased in 1997 at the Rose Bowl - in California by a surfers mother who thought it was a surfboard. The boy didn't think much about it and put it in his garage. When he was looking to start a business and needed funds, he contacted us (and a number of other collectors) for a valuation. We purchased it in 2018.
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.
Weight with bindings mounted: 5lbs. 11oz.
