Jeff Brushie

Jeff was brought up in New England and is a legend of the East Coast scene. In the early 90s he joined the Burton team alongside such names as Craig Kelly and Terje Haakonsen, and helped to kickstart freestyle riding as we know it today. Taking his cue from the fluid lines and technical tricks of skateboarding, he applied this style to his pipe riding – culminating in an overall World Cup title in 1991. More than this, though, Brushie made a name for himself as one of the first snowboarding rock stars, regularly whipping up the crowd at contests and generally living the rider’s dream. His cult status was cemented with one of the most popular Burton pro models of all time, which featured consistently cool graphics like the striped topsheet of the Cruzin’ 153 – surely the first retro graphic in the sport’s history? Indeed the Brushie pro model has, in one incarnation or another, graced the feet of many a future star – including the UK’s own legends Steve Bailey and Danny Wheeler – and its popularity saw him make a shock big money move from Burton to Ride in the late 90s, who were keen to cash in for themselves.

Since retiring from professional snowboarding Jeff has pretty much fallen off the industry radar screens. However, keen to introduce this legend to a new generation of readers and generally satisfy our curiosity, we caught up with him at his new home in San Diego, California to find out what he’s been up to.
