Eric Jackson is a level one-hundred BOSS. Never afraid to send it, his re-edited full part from Jake Blauvelt’s Naturally project is just over 5 minutes of balls out, explosive backcountry snowboarding.
Eric Jackson’s beard is big, burly and untamable and exactly the same thing can be said about his snowboarding. While E-Jack has in the past suffered from the pressure of having to live up to his big brother John’s incredible reputation, today he’s right up there sending it with the big guns.
Eric played a pivotal role in Jake Blauvelt’s powder-filled epic Naturally and all of his best shots from the movie have been re-edited into this new full part. Anyone who’s seen E-Jack ride before will have a pretty good idea of what to expect here: charging big mountain lines, cliff drops that would make normal grown men weep and a bunch of massive tricks stomped on the above terrain.
Look out for a huge front 12 off a windlip feature, some a-grade soul surfing and a ‘threading the needle’ ender that was apparently one of the scariest things he’s ever attempted on his snowboard.
If you haven’t seen Jake Blauvelt’s full part you must have lost your computer or something because it’s also essential viewing. And if you’re still aching for more amazing footage and riding, be sure to go grab your own copy of Naturally right here.
