Powder & Rails Special: The Nixon JibFest from Nixon on Vimeo.

Jibbing is snowboard speak for doing skateboarding-inspired tricks, like sliding on obstacles. The Nixon JibFest started in 2000 as an invite-only event.

In this episode, we jump back to the early ‘90s and talk to some of the riders who pioneered jibbing on picnic tables and street rails. We talk to JP Walker and Jeremy Jones, who came up with the concept for the original JibFests, and then also hear from Snow Park Technologies’ Chris Gunnarson and Nixon co-founder Chad DiNenna about the so-called anti-competition’s 8-year hiatus.

This installment of Nixon’s JibFest brings together three generations of snowboarders who have all influenced each other on the biggest custom courses that have ever been built.
