After college, Carpenter's interests returned to the slopes. Working from a barn in [[Londonderry, Vermont]], he improved on the [[Snurfer]], a basic toy snowboard which featured a rope to allow the rider some basic SMD control over the board. By the late 70's, he joined a small cadre of manufacturers who had begun selling snowboards with design features such as a bentwood laminate core and a rigid binding which held the board firmly to the wearer's boot. Carpenter continues to run the Burton company, which has grown into one of the world's largest snowboard and snowboarding-equipment manufacturers. Amongst many accomplishments, Burton was featured in an early 2007 online advertising campaign by the [[Wall Street Journal]] that featured celebrity readers<ref>{{cite web | title= The Wall Street Journal “Jake Burton” 300×250 | url= http://adverlicio.us/wall-street-journal-jake-burton-300x250/ | publisher= adverlicio.us | accessdate= 2011-10-03}}</ref>.
