Snowboarding

Jake Burton: Possibly the Coolest Dad Around. And Also Canadian?

Discussion

  1. I think that there is an error in that Wikipedia entry. It says that he was born in New York City at the top and then goes on to say that he is Canadian. It doesn’t really make sense.

    I have read lots of bios on Jake over the years and have never heard mention of him being Canadian. Although most articles about him focus on his later life and how he started Burton the company.

    Maybe one of his parents was Canadian?

    There is a longer bio about him here: http://www.k5.com/page.asp?itemid=229
