Jeremy Jones has been one of the most influential snowboarders throughout the history of snowboarding. He has filmed over 20 video parts over the last two decades, and influenced a style and type of snowboarding that has laid the ground work for where snowboarding is today and were it will be going in the future. Jeremy has always been pushing the limits of what is possible on and off a snowboard with a style that captivates snowboard fans worldwide. L1 Premium Good´s Jon Kooley has filmed with Jeremy and been good friends with him since he moved to SLC, UT years ago, and when we decided to rebuild the team, Jeremy Jones was at the top of the list. We sat down with Jeremy to ask him a few questions about what he is up to and his thoughts on the current state of snowboarding.

Do you like the cinched pant leg cuffs the L1 pants?
I do, especially the hybrid cinch.
Has Jon Kooley been an influence to you at all with his snowboarding or style, or was he on of the reasons you became aware and interested in L1?
Yes. Jon is for sure the first person I learned about L1 from, or at least giving it some sort of nod. Yes, absolutely because of him as a person and a ripping shredder. Jon ran with a few of us for many years pre-season up at our zone 'The Spot’. He was a hot head and a perfectionist to his imagination of what a his trick should be, his passion was always bleeding and I have a deep respect for that type of attitude and drive.
Are you excited for winter?
At this moment in time, how do you see snowboarding?
I see snowboarding and snowboarders hungry! Hungry for change, Hungry for Tricks, Hungry to get some! I know its tough out there from a business perspective, but man, the pulse is real and its thumping! Fools out there are getting it and they ain’t letting up, its so dang rad!!
Who are the people in snowboarding right now that keep you motivated and hyped in the snowboard community or direction?
Riders, always my main vein, JP, Seth, Mitch, Noah, Roan, Dale, etc… Classics always offering up stoke! The girls that are ripping in the Streets. Thank you for repping the steel! ✊🏼
Joe, Benny Urbs, Sam Tax, I don’t know, lots more! I know many by their insta handles only.
It's cool to see a new generation slipping in to the Biz side of the Industry. I think there is a lot of hope there. Dudes that have given everything to snowboarding and snowboarding gave back to them and now they are running it and its sick, its going to make things different for sure. I like it.
How has your snowboarding evolved the last few years?
Broken n Bummed to Definitely gettin some.
What movies or edits can we see you in this season and where can we see it?
I filmed a few clips this season in the streets with Seth and Mikey a little, got out with the Dustbox for a session it was rad. I think I’ll call it ‘The Rustbox’. Coming soon. I guess. 🤷🏻♂️
In what way do you want to give back or express yourself within snowboarding?
I don’t know. Not sure I think of it like that ever. I know I want to contribute to snowboarding, that could be working for a company that services the culture and supports snowboarders or managing a generation of riders. Whatever it is I hope I get the opportunity to stay in snowboarding till I’m dead.
Whats your favorite thing about L1 Premium Goods?
Bob Plumb and the fit.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I love you!
