JP Walker is one of the godfathers of snowboarding’s jib movement. Originally from Utah, these days he spends equal time between his home there and Encinitas, CA. where he gets his summer fix skating and surfing. You can be sure that at the first sign of fall turning to winter JP is back in his stomping grounds looking to ride something snow covered that’s never been ridden. JP, along with his peers, are considered the founders of jibbing. Today JP is far from limited to the snow covered stairs and rails of the jib world. JP has applied himself in the backcountry and everything else mountains have been able to throw at him. From his parts in Mack Dawg films, to being one of the originals of the FORUM team, co-founder of the Nixon JibFest to filming a video part in its entirety switch stance in This Video Sucks (2009), JP will always be one of our favorite snowboarders of all time.
