Rad Collector - Burton x Warhol x Basquiat Vapor
Last year the Burton x Futura Vapor was one of the most hyped snowboards of the year. That’s the power of Futura within the hype machine. This year, the Vapor has been considerably less hyped but undeservedly so. The board itself is once again NASA-grade tech, dipped in $1200 worth of Vaporskin Lite, and the shred stick that is going to win Kevin Pearce a gold medal at the Olympics in Vancouver. What’s been largely overlooked, though, is the fact that the 2010 Vapor features a graphic derived from a collaborative Andy Warhol x Jean-Michel Basquiat piece. See, now it’s a collector’s item. Available now at Burton flagship stores in LA, NY, Chicago, and Burlington.
