Burton Snowboards just announced the collaboration with LucasFilms that will be released in Flagships stores and specialty retailers around the globe on November 15th. The collab is with Burton’s Chopper snowboard, which is a board for the little groms out there – sizes ranging from 80cm (wee little ones) up to 130cm. The Chopper is great for beginner youth out there, it’s super soft and cushy and has raised edges around the whole board so that the little tykes can get down board balance and feel. The other piece is the Burton’s Red Avid R2-D2 helmet, perfect for any kid out there (that can fit into it) to feel a little more gnarly on the hill, at the skate park, bike riding, etc.
Even though Burton didn’t slap the graphics on the bigger boards for us “adults” (which is very unfortunate, yes) – at only $189.00 it’s one of those staple pieces that any Star Wars lover would absolutely kill to have up on their wall, adding to their art collection. After all, anything is art as long as you see it as so!
