Spending the day in the Doolans with my love and my splitboard under the most perfect bluebird sky was incredible. My skills are progressing much faster than I had hoped, & thanks to some good pointers I finally feel like I might actually be getting the hang of splitting! Rather than drone on about how […]

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 […]
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 […]
Happy Saturday my loves – welcome to the weekend, and another dose of shred-spiration! Another week down, and edging ever closer to winter I’m starting to get a little excited – season passes are purchased, splitboard missions are being planned, trans-tasman adventures are in the works… Winter is coming!

I’ve learnt to enjoy the things that summer has to offer. Long days spent soaking up the sun, abundantly green veggie gardens, long sweaty hikes, swimming in […]
Marie-France Roy is all kinds of awesome, she slays on a snowboard, rocks a splitboard and gives a shit about the environment to boot! Recently, while committing to her sustainable lifestyle as much as she commits to big lines, MFR has been busy co-producing The Little Things – a snowboard film with a conscience. The […]
Inspiration is a funny thing…at the moment I’m finding it in all sorts of unusual places. A news article about an unfortunate climber’s death on Mt Cook led me to an afternoon of researching the hugely inspiring life of Sir Edmund Hillary, which left a burning desire to conquer my metaphorical and physical mountains. Watching […]
Checking the weather…definitely a normal part of my day which swiftly turns into an obsession when a splitboard mission is on the cards!
It might sound obvious, but splitboarding is a seriously demanding sport, so keeping our bodies properly fueled helps us travel further and ride longer. Personally I feel that my body behaves better when I don’t eat grain-heavy foods, which means I have to put a little more thought into what I’m going to chow down […]
