Hana grew up in Big Bear Lake, Calif., and began snowboarding when she was six. If Hana wasn’t in school, you could find her at the ski hill, riding and hanging with friends. Since turning pro at the turn of the new millennium, Big Bear’s Hana has been a positive force in the progression of women’s riding, first as a perennial podium finisher in events like the X Games, US Open and Sims World Championships and later as the alpha female in the Misschief, Grenade and Runway film crews. Hana says “I’m pretty stoked for girls in snowboarding. We have come a long way and I think it’s gonna keep going strong.” All the more reason to be healthy and get active, ladies!
