Most snowboard films carry a message like, ‘Shred hard, stay safe (or not), ride fast, send it.’ But these Dec. 25 drops are saying something a little more cheery: ‘To all ye snowboarders around the world, happy Christmas, from Eric Jackson.’
Two-time TransWorld-nominated rider of the year, three-time Snowboarder mag top rider of the year, and man of general snowboard popularity, Eric Jackson has been up to a whole lot this year. (Including lots besides snowboarding, ironically.) To celebrate some epic riding across the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, he’s gifting us some footage of gold, just in time for Christmas.
What to expect of Goose Down? Pillowy, steep, bumpy lines and smooth, casual vibes. What to expect of Double Front? Big lines, big jumps, big flips. Eric Jackson holds nothing back in this Alaska-filmed, snow-blowing edit.
The two films, Goose Down and Double Front, go live this morning. Go ahead: Have your coffee, open those presents, hug your fam, then watch these films. Happy winter, happy holidays, and happy shredding.
Runtimes: 4 minutes (Goose Down); 3 minutes (Double Front)
