Teton Gravity Research
TGR began in 1995 and was founded by 4 friends who were passionate about the mountains and ocean. The vision was to put out products that came from the athletes' perspective, and that were more representative of the youth and progressions that were taking place in action sports. The company was founded by Steve Jones, Todd Jones, Corey Gavitt, and Dirk Collins with money they had earned from commercial fishing in Alaska.
Teton Gravity Research (TGR) is one of the fastest growing brands in the action sports industry. Founded in 1996, TGR has produced 28 award winning feature length films, numerous television series for Showtime, NBC, Fox Sports, and Fuel TV, and is known for its cutting edge media and lifestyles clothing line. TGR films showcase the world’s top snowboard, ski and surf athletes including Jeremy Jones, Ian Walsh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Seth Morrison. TGR is a proud member of 1 Percent for the Planet and strongly believes in protecting the environment in which the team works and plays. TetonGravity.com has become one of the leading online destinations and communities in the action sports industry.

TGR’s productions, athletes, and events are seen worldwide through a broad spectrum of media that includes home entertainment, cable and broadcast television, on-line, film tours, film festivals, print, and live events. We work with the top athletes in their respective disciplines. TGR is the most visible entity in action sports entertainment.

TGR is a lifestyle. We live and think outside. The stoke that we embrace is based around natural elements. It comes from pushing ourselves to the edge of what is possible. Today many of our natural playgrounds are being threatened by things like climate change, pollution, and development. Although we are far from perfect, TGR continues to take steps towards preserving these playgrounds and the bigger world around us. The new line is made from environmentally minded materials. It is inspired from the people, places, and lifestyle we embrace.
