Early female pioneers had a tough time convincing their sponsors to let them film rather than ride in contests – particularly the Annie Boulanger and Victoria Jealouse generation. This pair were pushing boundaries for female snowboarding before anyone else. Now there are a whole host of women climbing peaks, hitting giant kickers and carving up the pipe for film.
In the past few years alone, a number of all-female crews such as P.S. Snowboarding and Lipstick Productions have created some truly sick movies, opening up the floor for more female riders to get their name out there. These edits don’t get shown enough – and yet they really show some of the best female talent out there.
So make yourself a cup of tea, grab a packet of Jaffa Cakes and sit back with these nine awesome full parts. Like Jess Kimura’s part in Defenders of Awesome - you haven’t lived ’til you’ve seen that. If you didn’t believe in female shredding capabilities before, you will now.
