Many people have asked me, “What is snowboarding to you?” The answer I always say to them is, “Snowboarding is happiness”. I sometimes like to think about what my life would be like if I didn’t snowboard, but then I remind myself that without snowboarding I would cease to exist.

Life is what we as humans make of it and most of us go about our daily life doing stuff we hate. The majority of us hate waking up throughout the week for work, but it’s the hobbies that we throw ourselves into that make us live for the weekend. I hate waking up Monday morning for work, but I know that come Friday I’ll be up on the mountain doing what I love to do. It’s the simple things in life that make us the happiest and if we can’t find something that we enjoy, then we will be missing out the essence of life and only focusing on the things that control us like work and school.

My attraction to snowboarding is driven by the freedom it gives you to finally escape from reality. When you strap in for that very first run of the day, you can feel adrenaline rushing through your entire body and then you realize that with this snowboard the sky is the limit. As soon as you start heading down the mountain you can feel your brain shutoff, you stop thinking about life, and begin to live within the moment. This small moment in time is what I love about snowboarding and without snowboarding I would not be able to live a happy life. This is why I will continue to ride until the day I die.
