For winter 2013 we are super stoked that Burton UK's hot new rail rider - Orla Doolin will be joining the rudechalets™ Team Rider Programme. Orla's enthusiasm, dedication to snowboarding and bubbly personality make her a superb ambassador for the sport.
rudechalets™ have given Orla £500 to put towards her travel and training expenses. In between snow-based adventures to New Zealand, Finland and California Orla will be riding with the girls on our 2013 rudegirls snowboard week in January and will also be out in Morzine again towards the end of next season.
"I first started riding back in NZ in 2008, but got more into freestyle when I moved to Glasgow in 2010 and I was able to ride at the local dome. I started competing in summer 2011 and won the Scottish championships, Whitelines rail jam for best unsponsored rider and 3 stops of the Burton Hi5 rail jam. In November 2011 I started riding for Burton and Anon after meeting the guys from Spin Trading and then after a week with the rudegirls in Morzine last January I went to Tahoe in California for a month where I won the Northstar rail jam."
We are also really chuffed to have the awesome UK dome-talent Matt Higson signed up to our 2013 rudechalets™ Team Rider Programme. Matt lives for his riding and works hard to promote the local indoor snowboard scene.
rudechalets™ have given Matt £500 to put towards his travel expenses. In between working and smashing the rails at Tamworth Snowdome this winter he is hoping to hit up Helsinki with The Grindhouse Crew. Matt will be out in Morzine to shred with the guys and girls on therudechalets™ 2013 Playground Jam in April.
A few words from Matt:
"I started riding when I was 12 years old at Swadlincote Dryslope and rode there for 2 years before even touching snow. I now live in Burton (ironically) and work for The Snowboard Asylum in Tamworth so I spend a lot of time in The Snowdome and try and ride there twice a week. My favourite resort is either Morzine, because there so much terrain or Mayrhofen because the park is amazing! Next season I'm hopefully going to travel to Helsinki to film with The Grindhouse crew."
Sabrina has been riding in the rude team for five seasons and is an extremely popularface on our rudegirls™ weeks. Sabrina is a local French snowboarder based in Avoriaz. She is undoubtedly one of the most committed snowboarders I have met which has helped take her to a level that most of us dream about. Sab's favourite & best discipline is rails... however she is also comfortable spinning off the black kicker.
