He could have left. He could have quit. He could have done some weak ass shit, but he doesn't know how.
It's been over 20 years and,
he has done it all.
More than the gloveless fingers, spins off the toes, silhouettes of florescent sirens and dirt rock DNA, Jamie Lynn's method is his legacy. While every person who has taken flight on a snowboard has aspired to throw the perfect method air, Jamie simply grabs between the bindings as if his board were a tool, instinctively extends his trailing leg with purpose and completes this economy of motion with his left arm providing a subtle counterpoint. To the rest of us it is perfect, but to Jamie it is just a method.

Jamie's style can be compared to true confidence. Confidence is silent. He lets the art of his actions speak for him.
No words required.

I like Jamie's constant pursuit of creative freedom, his style and his raw passion for things he is into is a true inspiration to me. And that he still sends it like 1993 was yesterday, makes it so much fun to shred with him.
With or without gloves.

His style is what influenced me to want to pursue what I did in life, and my life has changed significantly because of it.

He takes everything to the edge and then past it; snowboarding, surfing, skating, artwork, and guitar is no exception. Apparently we love the same music, so Tittyfish is a no brainer. I'm inspired and honored to be making music with him.
He is a true brother, Temple too... total bad asses, I'm just happier when they are around.
- Wes Makepeace
He weaves his creativity through all that he does, inspiring men, women, and children to take life by the rattail and live fast and loose.
- Barrett Christy
Jamie's ability to express his creativity is as evident in his art as it is in his riding.
When I think of Jamie, it's a colorful, powerful image of a positive spirit; his inspiration is inexhaustible.
- Bryan Iguchi
A common subject in Jamie's work, shows his appreciation for the beauty of the female figure.

A young Jamie Lynn. Bold lines and attention to detail. Defining style for decades.
A self portrait first seen in the 90's and more recently revived as a throwback.
Jamie likes to paint cats and women. Whichever will sit still, long enough for him to finish.
Scenery of the North West as seen through the mind of Jamie. A tribute to Mt Rainier.
A piece that found a home on the wall of Seattle's iconic board shop, Snowboard Connetion for 5 years.
Jamie is a lifestyle guitarist. He doesn't stop to play it, rather he incorporates it into everything he does, and that includes his artwork.
Surfing off the west coast of Kauai. Jamie often paints his favorite surf break, Polihale.
