JP Walker has come a long way from his beginnings as a young kid skating the streets of Farmington, Utah with Jeremy Jones. JP, a.k.a. the Don,” has become one of the most respected athletes in the snowboard industry for a number of reasons: his innovative tricks, more than a decade’s worth of impressive video parts, and his desire to represent core companies like Stepchild Snowboards. JP spends a lot of time nailing down tricks, but he also puts plenty of energy into coming up with new tricks and finding new locations for them in order to ensure the progression of snowboarding. 2009’s This Video Sucks features some of his most progressive moves yet. JP’s 100% switch closing part is yet another ‘never done before’. In addition to filming with People this season, JP also guest edited and was on the cover of the February 2010 issue of Snowboarder magazine. He was also named #7 in Snowboarder’s Top 10 Riders of the Year Awards. This marks JP’s sixth time on the top 10 list, which is more than any other rider in the history of the sport. It is proof of JP’s continuing legacy in the world of snowboarding.
