In 1977 Burton moved to Londonberry, Vermont in order to produce his first Burton Snowboard. The first snowboards that he made were in his garage by hand, although he couldn’t afford to buy the proper tools. The next year, Burton moved to Manchester, Vermont. Jake, along with 4 or 5 of his friends, sold, shaped, built, and repaired the boards that were previously made. His early boards were constructed from bentwood laminate and had a fixed binding that held the rider’s boots tightly to the board.
