©Nic Alegre

HOMETOWN: Redwood Shores, CA
STANCE: Regularish, 15 -15
FAVORITE RESORT: Northstar has been my favorite for years, but I’m pretty attached to Mammoth right now.
FAVORITE SNOWBOARD COMPANY: I have a couple favorites right now. 1. I love Volcom for outerwear and streetwear 2. Bataleon makes my favorite board I’ve ever ridden and the company as a whole has a pretty cool vibe right now. 3. I always use Burton for boots, bindings, boardbag, and tools. Their clothing is always good quality too. They’re also doing a lot of really rad things for women’s snowboarding (check outhttp://burtongirls.burton.com/)
NATIONALITY: Born in America, and proud of my Maltese/Norwegian heritage.
OTHER ACTIVITIES: Following cats on instagram is an activity right?
FAVORITE SNOWBOARDER GROWING UP: When I was young my favorite rider was Marie-France Roy. Now I really look up to Kimmy Fasani.
BOARD SETUP: For park- Bataleon Disaster 145 with Burton Notori Bindings. For pipe- Rome Blue 145 with Burton Escapade Bindings.
FAVORITE TRAVEL SPOT: Traveling in general is one of my favorite things to do. Going overseas is awesome, but so is just going into San Francisco. I guess Earth is my favorite travel spot.
WHAT HAS SNOWBOARDING TAUGHT YOU: Snowboarding taught me that people will always try to stop you from doing the things they can’t do themselves, but it you have a dream you have to go get it. As long as you believe you can do something and want it bad enough, you have the potential to be able to do it.
