Ride Snowboards dropped the last episode of ‘Because of snowboarding’ featuring none other than Mr. Jake Blauvelt. This series was dedicated to highlighting a different pro rider every week, and captures the personal stories and intimacy each rider has with snowboarding.

You can describe Jake Blauvelt in many ways, but two words that resonate with the dynamic rider are: Well Balanced. From his aggressive riding to everyday life, Jake focuses tons of his energy on being well balanced. Yes, Jake kills it on the board, but to be able to consistently perform at such a high level demands dedication and hard work. Jake eats well, unplugs from everything by going fly-fishing, and knows he's super fortunate to be able to do what he does.

Jake is having arguably the best year of his snowboarding career. He released his two year project 'Naturally' couple weeks ago and it's one of the best snowboarding movies ever made! You had a chance to watch it online on our website for a few days. In case you missed it (What??) you should definitely get yourself a copy for your movie library:
