Joe Sexton

Joe Sexton has been a driving force behind the urban/park snowboard scene over the last decade. Known to most snowboarders as the one pushing the limits of what is possible in the streets while filming for his next video part, and always searching for a way to progress snowboarding on and off the mountain. Joe has filmed more first and last parts than most of today´s active snowboarders, but this has never affected his humble and comic personality. L1´s current mastermind Jon Kooley has always been a fan of Joe´s snowboarding and attention to detail on and off the board - so when the opportunity to join up together with L1 came about - the two of them made it happen.

“I’ve known Joe for quite some time, filming together for several years from People to VG. Joe has been a great friend, as well as an inspiration over the past decade, I have watched Joe grow from a hungry kid filming his first part into an icon within the snowboard industry. Joe has a true love for snowboarding and the endless pursuit of perfection. I’m very pleased to have him join the L1 team and I look forward to his insight and creative perspective.” – Jon Kooley
