About Jacob

Snowboarding since he was just nine years old, New Zealand rider Jacob Koia says there are a few achievements he’s particularly proud of, including receiving an invite to the Arctic Challenge.

As a regular in snowboard films, Jake is stoked to be involved in projects that got him fired up as a kid. “When I was growing up there were never really any guys in New Zealand doing that and I kind of figured these things were out of reach for us so they are pretty huge achievements for me.”

As well as featuring in films such as the Sandbox title ‘Now You Know’, Jake has also earned his stripes on the contest circuit winning best trick and best overall rider at the Red Bull King of the Rail contest in Australia.

He’s also amassed a string of podium finishes in the Billabong slopestyle contests and won the Cardrona Big Air contest on home turf in New Zealand.
