Jumpin Jaxson Riddle
Hailing from the fine desert oasis that is Washington, Utah, 17 year old Jaxson Riddle has been making waves in the freeride world around Southern Utah. We’re honored to be one of his sponsors and help get this young shredder some more visibility!
We first met Jaxson when he won an SR Suntour RUX fork during an Instagram giveaway we did well over a year ago. Since then we’ve been watching him closely. At the time he was mostly riding alone, self-filming and editing clips of him sending huge gaps and urban drops to flat with style. We knew right away he would be someone to watch and we’re proud to say, it looks like he’s on track to proving us right!
He made quite a showing amongst the pros at Whistler Bike Park during Crankworx. His massive airs and moto-influenced style had guys like Ryan R-Dog Howard asking, “Who is this kid!?” Although he may not be a man, or boy, of many words, it doesn’t take long to realize he lets his riding do the talking for him.
We were planning on giving Jaxson some holiday gift money to help cover some gas, tools and other expenses as he works hard to rise to the next level. For every comment we receive below, we’ll give Jaxson an additional $5!
If you feel the holiday cheer and want to donate some more, leave a comment with your email address or send us a message and we’ll get you in contact with Jaxson directly to help stoke him out even more.
