More 2008 Burton Ready to Ship

New to stock 2008 Burton products are starting to make their rounds to respected web stores from coast to coast (and around the globe for that matter). As we mentioned back on August 2nd, (BTW all Backcountry Stores are having their semi annual sale right now – yep, up to 70% off retail through September 3rd) was the first retailer to stock 2008 Burton Snowboards and Gear. They seem to somehow beat all the others to the punch with Burton. But more merchants are starting to fill the warehouse with the products from the top snowboard brand on the planet.

So here’s a quick note to let ya’ll know that ProBoardShop is now ready to ship 08 Burton gear as well. Compare prices on Burton at OGE to see who has the best buy on the latest and greatest products. Snow season is quickly approaching. We’re through the hottest months of the summer so nowz the time to start thinking about the gear you need for the steep and deep conditions of winter. We had a hellish heat wave of a summer here in Utah so I think I can speak for everyone at OGE when I say bring on the POW.
