Built by the in-house staff at Burton in their cozy Vermont prototyping facility (named after Craig Kelly), comes this reinvented classic. The same shape and graphic that was strapped to Terje Haakonsen’s feet in 1995 has been recreated with updated materials and sizes to meet the needs of everyone’s favorite Norwegian shredder. Equipped with Burton’s channel mounting system, FSC certified “Dragonfly” core, carbon highlights and a high-end sintered base, this cat has been let out of the bag to make its mark on the 21st century. Seeing that Haakon himself has grown up a bit since the mid 90’s, this board can’t simply be called “The 152” anymore. Now you have more mature sizes of 156 and 159 centimeters that can handle the bigger and badder terrain that big T himself thrives on.
