adidas Snowboarding Presents /// Buzzcut by Jed Anderson
Ready? Okay. JED ANDERSON IS FUCKING BACK! There. I said it. It's a secret that I've been privileged to know about since the beginning of the 2017/2018 season, when Jed formally signed with adidas. From there, they hatched a plan to film a full part and release it in January of 2019. And that's exactly why we are here, right now.
For his entire career—which, oddly enough, has been almost his entire life—Jed Anderson has always been a few steps ahead of everyone else. He's an innovator, a trendsetter, and arguably the best street rider who has ever lived. That's why a few years back, when he got dropped by his main sponsor, it was a cataclysmic shock to the snowboard community. But I would soon learn that Jed wasn't really that fazed by it. He just kinda…moved on. You see, Jed has other interests in his life outside of snowboarding that he is influenced by, so when professional snowboarding came to an abrupt halt, he just kept on pressing on.
Jed is one of the most interesting people that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He's calculated, collected and he has fine-tuned the art of knowing exactly, precisely what he is stimulated by. And you can see that in everything he does, from his snowboarding to his skateboarding to his art. In many ways, at 27 years old, Jed has it more figured out than most twice his age. But in the process of this top-secret endeavor, it seems that Jed has learned a lot about himself. He's growing, maturing, and it shows in his riding, because the kid is better than ever. This isn't Jed's second chance. This is his second introduction.
