The Burton Easy Livin X Martin Guitar Snowboard

the Burton Easy Livin X Martin Guitar snowboard
Professional snowboarder Danny Davis has two loves: snowboarding and music, so when he had the opportunity to create a snowboard with Martin Guitar and Burton, he just couldn’t refuse. Davis, who is also the ambassador for Martin Guitar, traveled to Martin & Co. in Nazareth, Pennsylvania to design a guitar. He worked with the masters of Martin, and selected the guitar’s wood, fretboard and bridge. He decided to add custom Mother-Of-Pearl inlays on the fretboard to represent things that are important to him: fishing, camping, his dogs, peace and his long-time sponsor, Burton Snowboards. When that was finished, the folks at Burton photographed Davis’s Martin Guitar and emblazoned its image on to a Burton snowboard. The result is the Burton Easy Livin X Martin Guitar snowboard.

“The Burton Easy Livin x Martin Guitar snowboard has become my favorite board that I’ve ever ridden,” says Davis. “Not only does the board bring back memories from winning X Games and going to the Olympics last season, it also sparked one of the coolest collaborations between myself and two of my favorite brands – Burton Snowboards and Martin Guitar. Plus, you’re riding a guitar, which is pretty cool.”

According to the press release, “the Easy Livin snowboard features three different shapes, each tuned for perfect mountain harmony – on groomers, in powder or in the park. Riders can choose from a more blunted freestyle shape in the 152, a pointier freestyle design with the 158, or the stock and sturdy all-around feel of the 155. The Easy Livin offers a highly maneuverable, stable, and snappy experience for laying down fresh tracks.”

After you decide the one that’s right for you, it’s all about fine-tuning down those slopes.
