Jess Kimura is one of the most influential snowboarders in the world. Hard stop. Her relentless riding style and lauded video parts, combined with her unending drive to bring others up alongside her (a vision turned concrete in the Uninvited, Uninvited II, and upcoming Uninvited III) continues to make an reverberating impact. This past year, Jess collaborated with director Ben Knight to tell her own story of tragedy and how she navigated an unimaginable path to continue to push forward. The result is Learning to Drown, a film presented by The North Face.
