Our annual party with Burton Snowboards on the roof of Milk Studios has become something of an urban legend: the perfect jump off that hits just once a year and signals the official beginning of summer in the city. This year the party gods showed their favor on the event to an even higher level as a wet muggy morning bloomed into sunny cloudless afternoon before a sunset that has us feeling like we were partying in heaven. Yes it was that good. With flowing tropical cocktails from Peligroso, Captain Morgan and Smirnoff, ice cold Red Stripes and a raging dance floor courtesy of DJ’s Smoke L.E.S. and Florencia Galarza it was, well, perfect. Take a look at a sneak peek at Burton’s 2015 winter line and appearances from Shaun White, Jeff Koons, and Jake Burton plus team riders Danny Davis, Mark McMorris, Kimmy Fasani, and Kelly Clark, in our full gallery of photos from Peter Pabon. Can’t wait til next year!
