The brunette son of a ginger, Jacob Krugmire is a rider of his time. As the poor man’s snowboarding prodigy, Krugs strives to back up his antagonistic social tendencies with proper style that is true to the streets. His yearning for triple kinks over fresh tracks makes him an anomaly amongst Northwest newcomers. The fact of the matter is that Jacob has been snaking his way into heavy sessions for nearly a decade, with the freestyle-centric DNA he shares with his half-brother Austin Hironaka on display every time he’s strapped in. Accenting this MO are a dirty stache and a natty fro that make even the cleanest tricks seem casual.
With Beta, SNOWBOARDER Magazine has once again assembled an eclectic crew of disrupters who strive to change the game every time they strap in. Volatile and charismatic, this cadre of riders on the come up have cut their teeth following the contest circuit and being featured in online edits. Putting this pedigree aside, these ten talents spent the winter of 2018 with cameras in tow, sending it further, stomping cleaner and pushing progression harder than ever before. Filmed from Austria to Canada and all points in between, The SNOWBOARDER Movie: Beta provides viewers an unfiltered perspective of the style, ability and fearlessness that Brock Crouch, Benny Milam, Gabe Ferguson, Finn Westbury, Gab Jacques, Nik Baden, Reid Smith, Brandon Davis, Jacob Krugmireand Jared Elston possess. Directed by Tyler Orton and featuring a soundtrack that includes artists like Fugazi, Portishead & The Cro-Mags, Beta taps all senses in an effort to spread the stoke and announce the arrival of a new generation of professional snowboarders to the big screen.
