The Philosopher

Burton founder Jake Burton and Jeff Koons collaborated on the design of a limited edition snowboard titled The Philosopher. Featuring visual graphics created by Jeff Koons and technical aspects designed by Jake Burton, The Philosopher was crafted by hand at Burton Headquarters in Vermont where only 50 of the limited edition snowboards were produced. Koons's design features the largest foil stamps ever to be used as part of a snowboard graphic.

All proceeds from sales of The Philosopher benefited The Chill Foundation, the charity organization founded by Jake and Donna Carpenter that inspires youth to overcome challenges through boardsports.
