The Burton founder felt it more than necessary to pay a visit to McMorris after the world famous snowboarder endured a horrific snowboarding accident. When all was said and done– McMorris suffered a fractured jaw, fractured left arm, ruptured spleen, a pelvic fracture, rib fractures, and a collapsed left lung. Mark rides for Burton but you get the feeling the relationship here goes a bit further than film segments and signature boards.

*Best wishes for a speedy recovery to the snowboarding Wolverine from Regina.
