What does snowboarding mean to you: Snowboarding to me is a time where you can just go out with some friends and just forget about everything for a couple hours. When your out on the hill the only thing your worrying about is landing your next trick and deciding if you want the pasta for the third day in a row or the chicken fingers for lunch. Snowboarding means everything to me. The feeling you get when your out there doing your thing and your riding with your crew just having a blast and at the same time everyone is trying to show each other up and just improve its just so exciting and trill seeking. I couldn’t ask to do anything else.
Why do you love it: I love the sport because not only is it the most fun, relaxing, exciting thing to do, it also can be very dangerous and trilling. It truly is an extreme sport. When your up there on that mountain and your throwing yourself off these jumps or onto these rails, it all comes down to what you do in those split seconds, and it really teaches you that time goes by fast and you have to appreciate those few seconds you have. You know when you have found your passion when you can just go out and just have that happy, free feeling doing what you love, and snowboarding for me is what i love.
(thoughts on) Females in snowboarding today: Females in snowboarding have come a tremendous way. I am so excited seeing all of the girls out there. I remember my very first contest I went to I was the only girl in my category and now a days I enter contest and there are at least 3-7 girls. Women have also improved so much in snowboarding, in what they throw down and the level some of these riders are at. Making it to the Olympics this year and more. Its very impressing to see that. Its also really exciting to see all the new female riders getting out and getting involved in the sport. If you ever check out the Roxy Ride Days or the Oakley Progression Days, there are more girls on hill those days then there are guys. The girls are really starting to step up and take there place on the mountain and Its a really great thing to witness and to help be a part of! I can’t wait to see more girls getting on hill and taking their riding to the next level.
