You probably already read about it on our website: Burton and main sponsor Suzuki came up with an online-design-contest based on the concept of Burton’s Series 13™. If not, check it out with some video instruction.

The contest’s site - - is live so everyone out there gets the chance to design his own board and win it. Today we got incredible news from our "spy": He sent us a mail with the first design entries! Hope he didn´t get caught by any officials and is now threatened with death (I´m sure he is better than James Bond and will have some freaky-deaky idea how to get out of this situation). Anyway, here are a few examples - have a look at them and get inspired!

The winner will take home a brand-new Suzuki Grand Vitara Freeride in the design of the winning board-graphics! The contest is part of the Burton Series 13™ program ( It enables consumers to create their own board graphics. All contest submissions will be judged online by the public on a monthly basis. 5 monthly winners will make it to the finals at the end of the season. The best designs will be judged in the first week of March by a panel consisting of Burton team riders, product managers and Suzuki representatives (and our editor-in-chief, Mr Daniel Burrows!). The best Series 13 design will receive a Suzuki Grand Vitara Freeride Edition in the design of the winning board-graphics as well as his personal Series 13 board!

Taking part is easy: and download the template for a board-shape, design your board – be creative! – and upload the file.
