Follow Your Dreams

Follow Your Dreams

For as long as I can remember, snowboarding has been the number on priority in my life. When I was old enough to fly free I packed up my bags and headed off overseas, met a wonderful man that shares the same desires as me and embarked on a journey to snowboard the world together. […]

Saturday Session : Liz Daley

Saturday Session : Liz Daley

Another Saturday droppin’ in HOT! This time with a lady that’s taking snowboarding to the back of beyond, splitting her board in two and climbing gnarly peaks for the privilege of dropping some seriously epic lines.   Liz Daley   My first inspiration in taking the move to splitboarding, watching Liz get into steep couliors […]

Saturday Session – Christy Prior

Saturday Session – Christy Prior

Bringing things back down under today with an epic edit from….. Christy Prior! As an Australian living permanently in New Zealand it’s hard to decide just where my  allegiance lies – especially during big events like the Winter Olympics. Honestly though, and as cliché as it may sound, I’m in it for the snowboarding and couldn’t […]

Snowboards and Sexism – a rider’s tale

Snowboards and Sexism – a rider’s tale

Sometimes I find it extremely frustrating to be a girl who is intensely passionate about a VERY male dominated sport. There are the days where it’s hugely empowering to be out there smashing sweet, sweet powder turns with the boys, and then occasionally there are the days when you are made to feel like you don’t […]

Saturday Session – Hana Beaman

Saturday Session – Hana Beaman

It’s getting pretty cold down this end of the world, and my snowboard radar is ramping up each time I reach for a beanie. One lady who has regularly appeared on my radar this past 6 months is the amazing Hana Beaman. Her progression from competition rider, to backcountry babe is reminiscent of the industry’s move […]

Back 5’s and Backlash – an Olympic review

Back 5’s and Backlash – an Olympic review

I feel compelled to put virtual pen to paper today following the controversy surrounding the behavior of some Winter Olympians, most notably in this article. Once the greater snowsports community caught wind of this incredibly presumptuous article, we rallied to support our own as they made us proud. Even notable snowsports journalist Miss Snow It […]

Rumors of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Rumors of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Popping in quickly to share an article that made its way to my eyeballs today. Snowboarding has been under some serious scrutiny lately, with more than a handful of people harboring the opinion that snowboarding is dead.  This was one of the offending articles – it got my back up, made me rage and rant and […]
