SESSIONS Get to Know a Pro!!!

December 15th 2009

This weeks question is from Danika Richard,
Tara, Im a 14 year old girl and I want to become a pro rider like you....so I
was wondering what are the best (small) contest you have been to when you where younger and started snowboarding?

Hey girl, when I was 14 I had just barely started getting into contest so good job in getting out there and givin it a go. There are a lot more contest these days. I did some USASA and Grand Prix’s. Those maybe a little harder to get into now but Jams like the Peanut Butter rail jams are cool and fun.
Small contest pop up all the time like the Flaunt it Tour....I don’t think that going anymore but just keep your eye out for ones like that and register early. I’m sure your local mountain does some to. Any contest is good experience and a good way to be seen to get noticed. USASA’s are more of a circuit but they are GREAT!! And very Organized.
Hope that helps and hope to see you out there. Ill remember your Name.

Keep having fun!!
