Past Parts: JP Walker in The Resistance, 2000

JP Walker’s impact on street snowboarding is as powerful as it is continuous. From his early years with the Forum 8 defining how streets should be ridden, to a part filmed entirely switch in 2009’s This Video Sucks, to this day he brings unparalleled style to both concrete and piste. What you may not have known is that The Don is credited with doing the first double corks ever stomped in the backcountry as well. Forum’s The Resistance was the most progressive snowboarding film of that era and if it weren’t for revolutionaries like JP Walker, snowboarding definitely would not be where it is today.
