Jed is from Taupo, New Zealand. He is 34 years old and has been riding BMX for 20 years. Jed's greatest attributes are whatever he is doing he gives 110% to be the best he can be, thinks outside the box and has the special drive to live passionately and follow his heart.
In 2011 Jed changed his life and the sport of BMX forever. He saw an opening in the sport, no one was jumping massive jumps! So he went and made some of the biggest jumps ever in action sports and successfully landed the worlds first triple back flip on a BMX. The video went viral clocking up over 2 million views over night.
Jed's accomplishment on this project made him an over night international super star and gave him the credentials to rock it with the best. In 2013 Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus came to New Zealand and recruited him for the NZ tour. From there he made such a powerful impact on the Nitro Family that he was instantly signed to the world tour. He has now racked up over 300 live shows all over the world.
Jed's drive to go bigger accelerated. In 2015 he stepped it up. He broke his own Guiness World Record and became the first person to achieve a quadruple back flip. From there Jed re focused his drive from his own personal progression to the want to help others. He then created and developed the Franklin Farm in Tokoroa. He did so to give back to the healthy outdoor lifestyle he so dearly loves and owes his life too to help others and enable them the same opportunities he has had.
Now Jed & Jumpflex have teamed up and both their wildest dreams have come to fruition once again. Both parties drive for progression and the nurturing of young action sports stars in NZ has just taken a huge leap forward.
The aim of the Jumpflex athlete development program is to equip young athletes with the mind set and tools necessary to ‘play for life’. With Jeds experience in the action sports industry and his drive to live passionately makes him the ultimate mentor for the Jumpflex athletes. Jed loves helping people achieve new things, dream big and reach their goals.
Jed's ultimate life philosophy and quote he lives by is ‘be very careful what you wish for’. Everything Jed does he sets his mind to and manifests. He has a great outlook on taking one step at a time to achieve what he and others want. Jed loves the strength and ability of the human mind and believes it can achieve anything. Play to your strengths and greatness happens!
Jed is so excited to lead and develop the Jumpflex Athlete Programme! He's looking forward to helping Taylor, Levi, Nixon, Flynn and Brie to achieve new things, reach their goals and dream big!!
