Remembering A Legend | The Jake Burton Carpenter Shinola Gift Set

A fitting tribute to one of snowboarding's pioneers

In honour of their late founder, Burton has released The Jake Burton Carpenter Shinola Gift Set as a tribute to all the things the great man contributed to the world of snowboarding. Made in collaboration with Jake’s family, as well as many close friends, the set includes a limited edition Shinola Duck watch, a replica of Jake’s first production board, a deluxe cooler bag, and a hardcover coffee table book titled 13: The Story of Jake Burton Carpenter. Speaking about the project and how it helped the family cope with their loss, Jake’s wife Donna had this to say: “We were all deep in the grieving process, so working on this together was cathartic and helped us stay close to Jake. The end result is a true reflection of Jake’s passion, creative spirit and pure love of life.”

Jake was great friends with Shinola founder Tom Kartsotis, so it is only fitting that Burton and the Detroit watch brand came together in this new tribute gift set. The Duck watch is crafted from stainless steel and an extra thick sapphire crystal, meaning it can take whatever you throw at it. Featuring a 3D recreation of the iconic image of Jake riding his first board, the BB1, on its back, this watch is a true collector’s item for admirers of Jake and the lasting legacy he left behind.

Speaking of the BB1, the gift set also includes a replica of Jake’s original Burton Backhill board, the first ever snowboard Burton released. Recreated in all its retro glory, this board is a holy grail for many a snowboard aficionado. Obviously more for display purposes than charging down a mountain, this replica serves as more of a time capsule of Jake’s lasting legacy in snowboarding.

Imagined in a pure and snowy white, 13: The Story of Jake Burton Carpenter tells the inspiring story of arguably the snowboard industry most influential person. Filled to the brim with personal stories, home photographs and Burton history, it’s the quintessential guide to Jake’s life and legacy. To complete the gift set, the book and watch come in a practical and stylish leather cooler bag.

This new gift set from Burton is a fitting tribute to one of the biggest figures in snowboard culture. The Jake Burton Carpenter Shinola Gift Set is available to purchase now. For more information, click here.
