Skip the warm-up run, Jack, it's a freaking powder day! Inspired by swallowtail surfboards, the Burton Family Tree Skipjack Snowboard delivers powerful edge hold that can be broken loose for nimble, surfy slashes at will. Blast through gladed runs hit those drops you've been scoping out the last couple seasons, and make big, sweeping carves once you get back on piste. Don't let the shorter overall length of the Burton Family Tree Skipjack Snowboard fool you, this chunky little swallowtail was born for the deep days!
Directional Camber – A blend of rocker and camber in the nose combines float and control while camber under the back foot drives with power and stability.
Directional Flex – This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Directional | 25mm Taper – The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.
Pro-Tip™ – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core – Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.
Dualzone™ EGD™ – The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
Squeezebox – Burton's most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable and easier to manipulate.
45° Carbon Highlights – Carbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides more aggressive ride.
ReRez® Composite – Burton's new almost-zero-waste manufacturing process thanks to a material deconstruction called ReRez®. Simply put, it allows Burton to deconstruct the scraps leftover from shaping, sort them, and then return the materials to the recycling stream to be re‑used in other products.
Sintered WFO – Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season and in any condition.

Super Sap® Epoxy – A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduce the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board.
Infinite Ride™ – This Burton-exclusive technology allows maximized pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Flat Top, Flying V™, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
The Channel® Mounting System – Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).
