BORN

Bellingham, Washington


“As a world-renowned pro at the forefront of backcountry progression, Jake is known for his fluid blend of soulful freeriding and innate technical trickery. In his quest for pure, all-mountain expression, the Vermont native turned Washington local has pursued a singular and relevant path in snowboarding. Jake’s formative years were spent on the east coast competing in icy halfpipes and rock hard slopestyle courses, until he turned pro after winning some of the biggest events in the world, including the U.S. Open. After establishing himself as a top competitor in both venues, Jake set his sights on the backcountry, where a string of progressive video parts followed suit and positioned him as one of snowboarding’s best all-terrain talents. Then, at the top of his game, Jake shifted from the jump-based freestyle standard to a more natural, freeride-focused approach. It was a shift that set Jake apart and signaled his ongoing evolution as one of the few riders truly flying snowboarding’s flag and leading the push off-piste. He’s currently based in Bellingham, Washington, close to both Mt. Baker and the British Columbia backcountry where he spent the last two years filming for his two-year film project, Naturally.” -Adidas
