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.
Stoked to give you a glimpse into this season’s Chronicles. ENJOY!
Here’s a quick tease of what’s to come in this season’s Powsurf Chronicles short films. Grassroots Powdersurfing was founded in 2007 to create a pure, binding-free powder-riding experience. Drawing inspiration from skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding, we designed & handcrafted boards that enabled a new style of creativity, self expression and progression. We’ve spent the past 7 years pushing the boundaries of what is possible on our powsurfers and loving every second of it. The Powsurf Chronicles films offer a glimpse of what powsurfing is all about and focuses on the best things in life; people, places, and powder.
Stay tuned for episodes dropping this winter. Visit us at www.powsurf.com to learn more and pick out the right board for you.
Exploring the mountains of Alaska has been a life-long dream for me and this season I am doing everything I can to make that dream come true. When I saw that Snowboarder Magazine and Tailgate Alaska were giving away $5000 towards a trip to the Tailgate AK event my hopes were raised. I’ve been trying to bag as much footy as possible this season, despite it being the driest Utah winter in recorded history. So I threw some of it together and put my hat in the ring.
While I’m not a fan of facebook popularity contests, I figured it was worth a try. If nothing else it is another platform for more people to be exposed to the possibilities of ripping down mountains without the help of the old training wheels. While it was one of the favorites, the edit didn’t win the contest. So I will be making my Alaska dream come true the Grassroots way.. through hard work and personal sacrifice. One way or another I will make it to Alaska to surf the biggest mountains in the world this year.
Here’s a look at my submission. Thanks to my homies for helping me get shots!
