Athlete • Artist • Powsurfing Pioneer

BIO

Jeremy’s passion for sliding down snow covered mountains began at the age of 2 when his father first put him on skis. A childhood obsession with surfing and landlocked life growing up in Utah would naturally lead him to skateboarding and snowboarding in the 1980s. Jeremy has since spent decades as a local at Snowbird, Snowbasin and touring all over the backcountry conquering lines and building kickers with his friends, as well as competing in Big Air, Slopestyle Big Mountain & Boardercross competitions nation wide.

A relentless mission to ride as much powder as possible and Jeremy’s sense of humor as a Utah native led him to form a sect called the “Powder-Day Saints” in 2002, and to produce snow films under that name. This insatiable appetite for powder and decades of experience snowboarding & skateboarding led him to removing bindings from the equation in the late 90s and eventually create “powsurfers” which are a snowboard/surfboard hybrid, ridden in snow without any form of binding (powdersurfing).  Jeremy founded Grassroots Powdersurfing, the first ever powsurfing company in 2007 and has shipped thousands of his handcrafted powsurfers all over the world. He has spent the past 11 years spreading powsurfing world-wide thru his personal artistic expression via his handcrafted boards, his filmmaking and his photography.
