How Fast Can You Go On A Snowboard With Jamie Barrow

In the next episode of the Rad Season Podcast Oli Russell-Cowan chats to Jamie Barrow, Britain’s fastest snowboarder and Guinness World Record holder for the fastest speed on a snowboard being towed by a vehicle. 

Back in 2013 Jamie had a serious accident at a Snowboard Cross event which saw him bow out of the British Snowboard Cross team and dashed his hopes of competing in the Winter Olympics. Doctors told him that he wouldn’t be able to snowboard again and he was set on not only proving them wrong but seeing what could be achieved on a snowboard. Jamie turned to snowboarding speed records. Earlier this year in Gol, Norway he set the Guinness World Record for the fastest snowboarder towed by a vehicle with a speed of 183kph (113.71mph).

In the summer months to keep busy Jamie restores apartments in Bath, UK until it’s time to head back to the mountains for winter. He’s got some big plans to hit over 200kph on his board this season. Tune in for some of Jamie’s best snowboarding travel stories on pushing the limits on how fast you can go on a snowboard.

The concept for Rad Season came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world, but there was no single platform bringing them together for like-minded people. With over 15 years experience in international business development, spanning multiple industries including action sports, events, media, digital, ICT, travel and tourism, I decided to combine them all with Rad Season.
