Fantastic vintage Burton snowboard. This is a very early board. It has "A-226" handwritten in red ink on it. It states that it is "Handmade in Vermont, USA" This board is in over-all very good condition. The bottom does not show any signs of wear. There aren't any scratches or groves in the wood. There are a few spots on the tail or back end, see photos. There is an old "Burton" sticker in the middle of the board. I have not tried t...o remove it. This board was filthy when I bought it. I have wiped it off with soap and water only. I think that a deeper cleaning by someone that knows what they are doing will bring this back to life. The top has some area of mild roughness and what appears to be dirt There is an area near the "USA" that will come off with scrubbing but I wasn't sure that it should be removed. The back section is ribbed rubber and is in over all very good condition. There are some areas of wear around the edges. The runners on this are very smooth. In doing a little research online I think this is a very early model and possibly a prototype. I think the handwritten model number lends credence to that. I am not a snowboard historian so please use your own knowledge and research. This board is approximately 53.5 inches long and 11.5 inches at the widest. The paint is good a sharp. The rope and handle appear original. This could use a good cleaning but is an amazing piece. Would look great on a wall.
