TGR’s new film, Jeremy Jones’ ‘Life of Glide’

Inspired by a poem he wrote long ago, big mountain rider Jeremy Jones summons his greatest influences and dissects his lifelong passion for the simple and sacred feeling he calls, "The Glide" in TGR's new short film "Life of Glide."

Watch as Jones traces his passion for sliding sideways from old Craig Kelly parts and footage of Tom Curren at Jeffreys Bay, to his present-day obsession to crafting a snowboard that can recreate the effortless feeling of gliding upon a glassy wave.

With the help of his close friend - surfboard shaper Chris Christenson - and with the spiritual guidance of the ageless shaper Skip Frye as well as Curren, Jones embarks on a journey from the breaks of San Diego County to the peaks of the Eastern Sierra. The end result? A merging of his two greatest loves - surfing and snowboarding - into an experience that channels the pure essence of The Glide.

"Life of Glide" is available exclusively on Tetongravity.com and is presented in partnership with O'Neill.

For centuries the ancient town of Nazaré was thought of only as a small fishing village along the Portuguese coast, if thought of at all. That all changed in 2011 when big wave legend and surf pioneer Garrett McNamara recorded himself with a GoPro riding down the face of a 78-foot behemoth within spitting distance of the town’s historic lighthouse. Since then, the once quiet town has been flooded by surfers and the town’s economy has been revitalized. Related: Rent or Download Andy Irons:

Nazaré Welcomes Russell Bierke

Nazaré Welcomes Russell Bierke

The locals consider it a sign of good luck to take a massive wipeout when surfing Nazaré for the first time. If the legend is true, then renowned slab hunter Russell Bierke might be the luckiest guy in Portugal. After letting go of his towline and dropping into an estimated 60-footer, the young Aussie got overtaken by the pursuing wave and disappeared for 14 agonizing seconds. We can only imagine the beating he took, but if anyone has experience in that type of situation, it’s Russell.
