If you have ever seen a Jeremy Jones part over the years, you’d notice that he destroys everything from Midwest rails to the backcountry lines of Utah and Whistler. When not tending to The Spot or filming banger video parts, you’ll find Jeremy cruising the highways of Utah on his chopper or teaching his kids to shred on their Choppers. We had a chance to catch up with Jeremy and ask him a ton of questions. A Bur ton of questions actually.
1. You have had a lot of video parts of the years, what video part are you most proud of ?
Shakedown and The B.
2. What do you like about filming in the backcountry vs. filming in the streets? Or vice-versa.
Streets: I love the grind of sleepless days and nights, the nocturnal living. Generators, lights, clipping up!! It’s all just such a good feeling.
Backcountry: I love the Pow!! I love hitting jumps and the feeling of exhaustion after a long day on a sled, wind burnt and sun burnt.
Both have such amazing qualities, it’s hard to pick one.
3. Any future home improvement plans for The Spot you can share with us?
Not that I can share really. It’s more of a “in the moment” vibe up in the cut.
4. Who has a better Grave at The Spot, you or JP?
You always like what is not yours and I’ll back my friend’s kits over mine any day, however, we are both very comfy up there, livin’ is good.
5. Did the Utility Perch get created out of necessity or boredom? What’s the best feature on your Utility Perch?
Necessity and convenience really, you need quick and easy access to your scene. The best feature is my Snowboarder Knife, not only in my perch but one of the best items I own in my life.
6. Who tools up the best campfire Za’?
That’s a community effort; we all work together to make it the perfect Za’ every time no matter who is on Za’ duty.
7. What younger riders do you like to go on trips with and why?
Been traveling with Alex Andrew and Zac (Hayward) Hale. They give me a good look into what the kids are up to in snowboarding. It’s bit like traveling with my 5 year old, only they are really good at snowboarding!! But I like kids so it’s fun.
8. Any good security guard, crackhead, hobo etc type rail mission stories you can share?
Lots! The craziest for me was seeing a dead dude in Ogden Utah at 5am after a long street filming mission. That was pretty crazy!
9. With such low snowfall so far this season in Utah, how have you been making the most of it?
Just riding and trying to keep my game at least functional as well as keeping hyped and ready to roll as soon as it was go time.
10. Are your kids riding yet?
Yeah we get them up, the boy is coming along, but loves the hot chocolate mostly and the girl is starting to link turns. It is pretty rewarding as their father to be a part of it! I’m proud of those kids!
11. If you could take a motorcycle ride anywhere on the planet, where would you go and who would bring?
Anywhere with Jake, Seth, Stone and Andy. Those dudes all bring a lot to a trip.
12. What’s up with the Monkey Wrench and why do you like it? Is there a story behind the graphic?
It’s a good board! I messed with some spoon base options on it and it turned out sick, powders well and rails well so it’s a great stick. The graphics are Pizza! Pizza is the best food on the planet! That’s basically that.
