How’s your summer been?
I had a great summer, I went to Mt. Hood and I got to ride and tan a lot, so that was great. I also went to Nice in France with my boyfriend and I got to tan on the beach, drink wine and chill for a week, yee haa! I also went to a music festival in Norway, and it was a bunch of good bands and a lot of fun.
Where have you been shredding?
This year I went riding in Japan, USA, Europe, and Scandinavia, so I got to travel a lot.
How was filming the Roxy podcasts?
I remember filming one where we are supposed to have a good day and a bad day, we came up with a bunch of crazy ideas and had a lot of fun doing that. Make sure you check it out!
How were the rest of the riders and crew?
They were the best. I really like to hang out and ride with the Roxy girls. The filmer, Gendle, has the funniest ideas, and is just an awsome guy. I also want to give a big thanks to Josie and Lesley, who pretty much rock. Lots of good moments that makes the sesaon worthwhile.
What’s the best trick you’ve nailed this season?
Frontside 720 tail. I really wanted to get that on film, and I did, so I am happy about that.
What’s your ideal summer shredding destination?
Mt. Hood, no doubt. It’s an awsome place to ride in summer time. And Stryn in Norway, but that’s better for partying, ha ha!
How do you keep in shape when you’re off the slopes?
I do a lot of gymnastics, like trampoline and I also try to go to the gym and work out whenever I get the time for it.
Have you had any time to chill out and relax?
Yes, I tried to plan my summer so that I had some time to just lay on the beach and take some time off from snowboarding. I think thats important to keep your motivation up and get ready for a cold winter again.
Where will you be heading this winter?
I am going to travel a lot, probably some of the same places as last season, and hopefully I’ll get to go somewere I have never been before as well.
What kit will you be taking on the slopes?
Roxy outerwear and goggles, Rossignol snowboard and bindings and DC boots, and you should do the same, yeah!
What are you most looking forward to about the coming season?
I hope I get to go snowmobiling again this winter, I tried it for the first time this year, and it was just soooooooo much fun!!!
