Jesse Burtner is commonly known as the first rider to think of the “Quad Cork” and patent it so that someday he will collect a royalty every time it’s performed and be rich and famous. Until then he is set on filming Think Thank video parts and trying to keep that feeling of being a little kid that snowboarding gives you. Always with an open mind and usually with an open jacket Jesse cruises around with Pika and the Think Thank crew trying to find the most fun and bizarre things you can ride a Box Scratcher on, which is pretty much anything and everything. Creative snowboarding, creative living, creating movies and a creative Pika for a wife, Burtner’s got it made!
"After ten years of progression through creativity; Think Thank is brain dead and it's having a heart attack!

"Mind The Video Man" explores progressive freestyle snowboarding with those in the vanguard and those about to make their mark, while asking the question, "What's happening with the snowboard video, where is it going next and how will that impact our culture." Follow the video man and his crew as they push the limits of possibility and progression through creativity in an attempt to create something of meaning that will stand the new media onslaught and the test of time. Mind the video, man.

Jesse Burtner is an all mountain workhorse beast of a jibber. Jesse wanted an all terrain jib board that he could hit sidecountry jumps with, and still get his daily requirement of 38 jib tricks taken care of on. A short banana with Magne-Traction for people with full sized feet. Jesse, Sean and Pika run Think Thank and they are really good at making things simple, efficient, creative and extremely complicated. Jesse’s board is a thinking man’s jib stick that will get you out of any trouble your mind injects you into, with the style necessary to make the shot a keeper. Big Brain, Huge Balls, Short Banana!
