Witness as the Burton crew effectively redefine snowboarding in STREET [SNOWBOARDING]. Professional athletes, Mark Sollors, Zak Hale, Ethan Deiss, and Jeremy Jones perform a series of insane flips, intense wall rides and immaculate hand plants.
The mad sequence of tricks is so clean and crisp it seems like these guys have glue on their boards.
Jeremy Jones, and American professional snowboarder and the star of this video, is well-known for his freeriding capabilities. The guy absolutely rips through cities, hitting about everything in sight.
Jones speaks briefly of his sentiments towards the sport, “Not knowing what is going to go down. It’s just addicting, and I don’t want to stop. What keeps me in the streets snowboarding is the rush.”
Like most pros, Jones’s obsession with snowboarding started at an early age. He grew up skating in downtown Salt Lake City and was able to transfer his passion and skill from skateboarding and channel it into snowboarding.
Jones recalls how jocks would drive by and heckle him with sarcastic comments like “Sk8 or Die, bro.” Moments like those only served to solidify Jones’ convictions about his talents.
Hear it from Jones’s himself from 10:55 to 11:50. Jones’s part officially starts at 11:50 and it’s not something you want to miss.
