Sam McMahon

A skateboarder since the age of 12, Sam discovered snowboarding at university which swiftly led to the collapse of his degree. Upon graduating he moved to the mountains and has rarely been seen on UK soil since. These days he calls Morzine home and that’s where you can find him, shredding/rolling around when there’s powder or behind various lenses in the park when there’s not. After years of grotty ski-bum work he’s now as the Deputy Editor for UK & video content across Whitelines, Onboard and Snowboarder MBM - searching the web for that elusive snowboarding cat video.
