It’s All in the Glide

Snowboarder Jeremy Jones connects the surfing and snowboarding dots


If you like to surf and snowboard, boy is this video for you. Or, actually, if you’re only into one of those things, you’ll still enjoy it. Pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones, you see, loves to surf (he’s pretty good too). And respected surfboard builder Chris Christenson loves to snowboard (he’s good too). This 15-minute video from Teton Gravity Research gives you a little taste of both. Exploring the surf/snowboard connection isn’t exactly plowing new ground but Jones does a nice job of explaining how the two pursuits—and the nearly indescribable joy of “the glide”—feed off each other in his life. Christenson, a master craftsman, builds a beautiful snowboard for Jones to really merge the two disciplines. It’ll make you want to snowboard. Or surf. At the same time.

    I don’t snowboard or surf, but that was beautiful.

    I actually just picked up that exact board! Jones Storm Chaser. I’ve had it out once, on a 35 degree day in Minnesota, which is not what it’s made for, but man it’s a joy. It dug into the turns on the groomers amazingly well, at least until it got cold and the hill iced up. I bought it for a trip back to Baldface. If you don’t know Baldface, well, Google it. Anyway, enjoy the winter!
