Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Obituary: 2004 Burton S-Series Viewing 11 posts - 1 through 11 (of 11 total) Author Posts January 22, 2008 at 1:59 am #569596 jimw 1421 Posts On 1/12/08, my 2004 Burton split finally met its end in the Pinner couloir. It died doing what it loved most, in the middle of a pow turn at the top of a sweet chute. It had a good life, and has served me well over the past 3 years, despite all the hassles of the Burton interface system. RIP. I’ll be replacing it with a new Burton split, using the Voile system and Will’s bindings. Woohoo! Here’s a short pictorial tribute remembering some of the good times we shared.

The eyes are red from crying. 😥 This looks like a GREAT time: Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. January 22, 2008 at 5:32 am #602262 powderjunkie 1669 Posts OMG – too much. I can’t believe you actually did a tribute. 🙄 😀 Verts would be a way better tool on that suncupped terrain anyways.

Faithfully serving its master right till the end. 😥 RIP S165 January 22, 2008 at 5:34 pm #602264 mtnrider 740 Posts I remember meeting you, I had to catch up to return your skin that fell off 😆 good times. see you this winter possibly? January 22, 2008 at 10:09 pm #602265 Otto 98 Posts That sucks, But like you said, It lived doing what it loved. Now, are you interested in selling the interface parts? I could use some back up parts for my Burton. Let me know… January 22, 2008 at 11:58 pm #602266 Stagger Lee 242 Posts R.I.P. January 23, 2008 at 3:08 am #602267 affix snow 521 Posts Sorry to hear. At least it went doing what it loved most. January 24, 2008 at 4:48 am #602268 mofoco 94 Posts Ouch. What’s with the little slots in the tip or tail in one pic? Right near the clip. I’ve been away from the splitboard for awhile. Is this some new innovation? Sorry about the board though, at least you’re getting out!
