JP Walker, Bio
Born: 16th October 1976
Home: Salt Lake City, Utah
John Paul Walker has been impressing the snowboarding world since 1997 when he turned professional. His way is the way of the trick, doing countless moves before anyone else does them. He is also credited with reviving the jib movement, where those little technical tricks and playful parts really are the thing.
He’s starred in countless videos, including 17 parts in the highest grossing snowboard videos of all time and including a 100% switch part in ‘This Video Sucks’. It was the first ever switch part. He’s a people’s snowboarder too and became the chosen hero of the son of a September 11th victim. JP Walker was listed as one of Snowboarder magazine’s Top 20 Most Influential Riders too.
JP Walker continues his march of firsts and his march to progress snowboarding to greater heights.
