Jake Blauvelt is on the short list of riders who can link multiple tricks in a single first track descent, bopping from feature to feature, following a divine course. Yet what separates Jake from the likes of Müller, Rice and Rüf, is that the former US Open slopestyle champion-turned-naturalist projects a more cunning and calculated modus than his out-of-bounds über-pro peers. Jake cold-called us last fall asking questions about The SNOWBOARDER Movie: SFD. Thankfully, he liked our answers because we sure do like filming him ride. – Pat Bridges
