We stumbled upon this article by accident and much to our delight. Getting love from the folks at ESPN was the last thing we expected, and getting love twice within a few months was pretty awesome. The dudes at ESPN obviously know whats up and we must be doing something right. What we lack in money and connections, we make up with our passion and drive and it’s nice to see others recognize this.
Big thanks to the guys at ESPN for shining some light on us!
Grassroots came up big in the latest issue of Starfish Snowskate Magazine with the cover, a full page ad, and an 8 page interview with Jeremy Jensen – Founder/Owner/Designer/Shaper/Builder/Cinematographer/Photographer/Web Designer/PR Guy/etc.. of Grassroots Powdersurfing. Jeremy is obviously a very busy man (which would explain the lack of blog posts this year) but he (I) found some time to sit down and answer a few questions about surfing powder, videography, photography, and Grassroots Powsurfers.
After a killer trip to the Sawtooth Range in Idaho last February I was inspired to write a little story on the adventure. We met some new binding free friends and slashed copious amounts of powder in some really unique terrain. Starfish Snowskate Magazine ran the story in this years “Travel Issue”. Enjoy…
I had watched many interviews with top snowboarding pros over the years on Buoloco.com and I was stoked to get the call from Eduardo for a quick ichat and story.
The local paper here in Cache Valley caught wind of the recent publicity we have been getting and jumped on for a ride. A quick interview and photo shoot produced a pretty nice article. Thanks to the Herald Journal for giving us a full page of love in sunday’s paper.

We were super stoked when the writers for ESPN.com contacted us for a story. We provided them with a grip of unseen photos and some very detailed answers to a list of questions about what we are about and why we do what we do. They decided to start the new year off proper by running our story on the first day of 2012.
Check the story here. Titled “The Powsurf Chronicles take snowboarding back to it’s bindingless roots”
While the photos did not make it into the story (??) and many details were left out of the responses, we were pumped to have a story ran on such a major media outlet. Editing is necessary… especially when someone like me is rambling on and on about this obscure activity that is foreign to most people (powsurfing)… but it’s a bummer when points get missed or lines are used out of context. Journalism is a double edged sword.. Things can get pretty twisted around and the readers of these stories don’t realize this.
The response to our product, the films, and powsurfing in general has been overwhelmingly positive and it feels good to know that we are spreading stoke and opening minds in the world of snow sports. The few negative reactions we have seen are mostly due to misunderstandings. Dealing with the media is a funny thing.
One hell of a good write up on the biglines.com homepage today!
Big thanks to the fellas up north for tracking me down and doing the leg work on this story. Really well written and spot on. I was sold at the first paragraph:
That updraft of powder in your face is what makes powsurfing (or any type of powder riding) truly awesome. The guys at biglines.com obviously know whats up.
