It's official! John Jackson is off Burton and on Signal Snowboards. Check out his new welcome edit, featuring the man himself putting together a board in the Signal factory.
2014/2015 has been quite a season for sponsorship changes, with a bunch of established names moving home for next winter. Many of Burton's longest running riders including Nicolas Muller, Jussi Oksanen, and Jeremy Jones have moved onto new brands and ventures this season, and it remains to be seen who of the remaining team will be promoted or whether Burton will be drawing in some new talent.
John Jackson's Burton contract also came to an end over the past few months but we're pleased to announce that he has found a new home with Signal Snowboards.
Signal are one of the most interesting and creative brands out there right now, thanks in part, to their popular Every Third Thursday series and we're looking forward to seeing what kind of influences John can bring to the brand - we're sure it'll be a little more substantial than the dreadlock-infused core that is alluded to in this video.
All the best, John Jackson and Signal Snowboards!
With a foundation in pro snowboarding and manufacturing paired with a future in media and entertainment, Signal and John Jackson are thinking big! John and Signal are bringing their decades of experience and long-time friendship together as they officially partner up to build a groundbreaking approach to snowboarding.
