Nikita first met Cecilia when she competed at the Nikita Chickita Norway contest in March 2009. She rocked that event and deservedly won after an amazing second final round and picked up the Best Trick prize. An all expenses paid trip to compete at Nikita Chickita Europe was part of the win, so in April 2009 Cecilia made her way to Serfaus, Austria.

She blew away the judges with her super smooth style and amazing runs to clinch the contest, bagging a double Nikita Chickita win. At the time Cecilia had other sponsor commitments which Nikita respected, but we can now announce Cecilia is part of the Nikita team. We’re stoked to have her on board; not only for her skills but also her super chilled and relaxed personality.

Cecilia, from Örebro in Sweden, first started snowboarding at the age of 16 and now, at the age of 25 (on 23rd September) still finds it the most entertaining thing to do and loves it. Every summer Cecilia works to go riding in winter, where she rents a small house in Sälen, Sweden as her base. When she’s not traveling, competing or filming her favourite place to ride parks is in Kläppen and Tandådalen.
