Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Andrew Matthews and I'm a snowboarder athlete from Yellowknife, NWT. I decided to start this blog to keep my friends, family, fans and sponsors up to date about my life as a full time snowboarder. I will be posting about my travels, competitions, training and random awesome things that I come across. Enjoy the journey!

Canadian Shield Photo

"Did you see you're shot in the Canadian Shield article?" Darcy. "Which shot?" "Boo yeah!"

Congrats to Darcy for taking second at the contest, killing it with a front 5 off the rail. Yah a 5 off a rail... I know! At least I got something out of the tough conditions: this sweet photo!

One Shot Wednesday SB5

This past week I've been trying to get ready for the World Cup and just generally trying to progress my riding. After looking at some video with Joe we noticed my switch backside spins aren't as nice as they could be so I'm working on a few things to make them better. What do you think?

Three Shot Thursday

I've been super busy with contests the last couple of weeks and I missed out on a couple of 'One Shot Wednesdays'... so in response to my lack of blogging I've created the best thing ever! Go tell all your friends: 'Three Shot Thursday' is on my blog (this week only, limited time offer).
