In this short film we focus on the influence of skateboarding. A nod and a high five to a phenomenon that continually boggles the minds and stretches the imaginations of minds both young and old.
Smacking lips and cranking bottom turns in the Utah Backcountry with Grassroots founder Jeremy Jensen. Surfing is obviously a huge inspiration and influence on powsurfing and while ocean waves and mountain features are quite different, similar techniques are applied with beautiful results achieved.
The nooks & crannies that are normally buried deep in the snowpack have become our current playgrounds. “Ankle Biters” or really small waves is what episode 14 of The Powsurf Chronicles is all about.
Grassroots riders Jeremy Jensen and Scotty Arnold take a trip up north to powsurf with a handful of Canadian rippers. 4 days of sunshine and dry powder conditions in the Coastal mountains of British Columbia had stoke levels high as ever. Most of our Canadian friends were riding Grassroots Powsurfers for the first time and seeing the stoke and the smiles on their faces at the bottom of every run made the trip that much better.
Riders: DCP, Kevin Sansalone, Alex Warburton, Justin Lamoureux, Rob Stevens, Scott Gaffney, Scotty Arnold, and Jeremy Jensen.
