Two years ago, Jeff Koons discovered the magic of snowboarding what we made sure when he tweeted “Enjoyed snowboarding last week in Valle Nevado, Chile. It was awesome!” The artist obviously fell in love with the sport, so no wonder why he decided to design limited-edition snowboard. Dubbed “The Philosopher,” the special design is limited to just 50 production models, each of which will retail for a cool $5,000.
Featuring visual graphics created by Jeff Koons and technical aspects designed by Jake Burton, The Philosopher was crafted by hand at Burton Headquarters in Vermont
All of the proceeds will go directly to Burton’s not-for-profit organization, Chill, which provides opportunities for underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through board sports.
