Jake's garage business grew into the world's first snowboard factory and since then Burton has held the spot as the world's leading snowboard manufacturer. Burton constantly breaks the boundaries of technology and aesthetics for hardware and soft goods alike. Capstrap, E.S.T och Speedzone are just a few out of hundreds of patents held by Burton.
