http://mpora.com/videos/AN3ANamQc After it's been dumping in middle Europe all weekend, why not start the new week with some amazing footage of one of the best female snowboarders out there: shredding's sunshine girl Torah Bright.

This little edit by the Swatch TTR Tour tells the story of the 23-year old, one of the most successful and well-known female riders out there, who incidentally took the tour title in 2006/07 and has been paving the way for progression since she got on a board. In this video, Torah talks about her vision of the future for female snowboarding and also top riders like Cheryl Maas praise her skills. Without doubt one of the most progressive female snowboarders in the world, Torah goes on explaining how she got into practicing the Double Crippler in the pipe and her brother Ben, who has been coaching her for years, confirms his vision of Torah's future in the forefront of the development of the sport.

We're sure work will go down a lot easier after such a kick start. Or maybe not...
