Burton Re-Releases the Iconic 2002 Michi Albin Burtin Snowboard

The legacy lives on with the re-release of one of Burton's most iconic models

With its timeless graphic and freeride capability, Michi Albin’s only Burton pro model was nothing shy of iconic. Now a collectors item for snowboard history junkies around the world, the 2002 Michi Albin Burtin — yes, the misspelling was intentional, or, so the story goes — had everything you could ever want in an early ‘00s board: lively, solid, and equipped to tackle it all with style, just like Michi.

Featuring its unmistakable glow-in-the-dark ghost graphics created by none other than legendary skateboarder Mark Gonzales, The Michi Albin Burtin was a board that brought undeniable street cred and skate influence to the chairlift. No surprise it went on to inspire a number of graphics these past two decades, including Danny Davis’ first Deep Thinker and Free Thinker models. While his pro career was short-lived, there’s no denying the lasting impact Michi and his Gonz-infused pro model has had on the snowboarding community.

With the original release only available in 161, Burton has re-released the Michi in three sizes: 149, 156 and 161 with modern tech and materials, but still featuring the same the iconic 2002 Gonz graphic – seeminly a favourite choice of current Burton team including Danny Davis and Mikey Rencz.

The Michi ‘Icons Collection’ joins other Burton re-releases including the 1994 Kelly Air, 1987 Elite and 1993 Brushie and includes a range of glow in the dark apparel. Now available in very limited quantities in Australia and New Zealand exclusively at the following stores:
