1. Burton Twin 47 (1995)

    Taking off from the “Oijia” twin the year before, Burton released a full line of twin tips in ‘95. These boards were considerably different from the original twin, both in graphics and shape. Each size (139, 147, 153 and 158) had a distinctly different graphic and the tip and tail was much lower profile to reduce swing weight.

    These were fun boards to ride at time when snowboarding was about having fun, doing what felt good. If you check the shots below, in half of them the riders haven’t felt the need to grab. I’m not sure how a double cork feels mid spin, but there was something about drifting a big shifty that just felt good in the air. Still does.

    I have fond memories of Jason Brown tearing it up on this board.

    The graphics were memorable enough that Burton capitalised on them again just over a decade later, re-releasing them via the 2006 “Retro Twin”.
