Burton is proud to announce that Chris Sörman is the latest addition to the Burton European Team. Chris, 21 years old, born and still living in Jokoping, Sweden, is no unknown to the European Snowboarding scene.

Chris counts the victory at the Slopestyle Contest at the BEO 2004 as well as his part in this year’s Pirate Movie "Lubedence" to his biggest achievements so far. After finishing the Snowboard school in Salen he has been travelling the world as a pro-rider for over 3 years.

"I'm super stoked to be on the Burton Team," says Chris. "I always thought I would be on the team sooner or later, now I am!" He can't wait to shred with his team-mates and is looking forward to a season with filming, contests and all the adventures that come along.

Martin "Hasi" Haslwanter, Burton European Team Manager, adds the following: "I am very happy that Chris decided to ride for Burton. He is one of those riders who I have always thought would fit in our team. He has style and is a well-rounded rider who can impress in all areas of snowboarding. Another big bonus for him is that the whole European team is backing him 100% and is stoked that he rides in the same team now."
