Burton Presents 2016
Burton Presents is a web series showcasing Burton’s top riders doing amazing things on slopes and streets all over the world.
The latest episode (above), focuses on Danny Davis as he prepares for X Games by exploring the snow-choked forests of Hokkaido, Japan, with Mark McMorris and Terje Haakonsen. Whether it’s in the pipe or some misty forest, few humans truly embody the concept of balance quite like Danny, and when it comes to “training,” Danny does it right.
This installment features Mikkel Bang and Mikey Rencz, two names that run deep in Burton’s history and evoke thoughts of untouchable style. Mikkel brings absolute control and fundamental form to every feature in his path. His riding complements Mikey Rencz, a powerhouse who literally grew up on burly mountains and two-stroke smoke. Watch as they drop XL moves throughout the British Columbian backcountry.
In this segment, Ben Ferguson tears apart terrain from the Swiss Alps to Alaska. Whether it’s butters and carves, or the most heated park and pipe sessions, Ben’s MO is to send rowdy tricks with speed and old school style. Whatever terrain is in front of him, every time he straps in he’s tapping a deep well of creative positivity and a grounded love for riding.
This segment features two of snowboarding’s most adept rail technicians picking apart urban landscapes from the Midwest to far off lands including Japan, Russia, and Bosnia. Zak Hale defines style with proper, fluid tricks on tech features, while his partner in crime, Ethan Deiss, seems to have the most fun of anyone as he puts down one hammer after another.
