Ed Blomfield

Factory Snowboarding Head of Content Ed Blomfield caught the snowboard bug at a young age – brought up in Yorkshire, he witnessed the Pennine dryslope scene in its 90's heyday and once earned detention at school for dying his hair blonde in an ill-advised homage to Jamie Lynn. In 2005, after three seasons in Tignes and four years studying English/chasing the snow in Scotland, Ed took the reins at the UK's finest snowboard mag. As well as writing, editing and occasionally filming, Ed now looks after Onboard and Snowboarder MBM, as well as good old Whitelines, but still finds the time to shoot stills and venture out on snow.
