No Love for Burton Love
I’ve been trying to understand why Burton made the Love series, but I just can’t understand it. Apparently it’s some collaboration between Playboy and Burton. The graphics on the four different models are of vintage Playboy centerfold girls.
I read an article in the swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that Burton Team rider Mikkel Bang is forbidden to compete with the board in some American resorts due to it’s “provoking” graphics. Ok that’s kind of stupid unless the ban is for the bad taste, not the nudity, but I doubt that.
Perhaps the idea was to push the envelope, provoke people and get media to write about it. I just think it feels so outdated and tacky, in a bad kind of way. What were you thinking Burton?
