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, attempting to shred lines when there's powder or, more likely, hanging out with his dog when there's not. After years of grotty ski-bum work he’s now as the Video Editor across Whitelines and Onboard - searching the web for that elusive snowboarding cat.
