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!

15th Annual Showcase Showdown

The longest running snowboard competition in Canada went down last weekend. The Showcase Showdown returned to the Whistler base this year and it was awesome!
I would say its the best course since it was a pipestyle contest in 2008. Shout out goes to Brad Broughton for making the whole thing come together.

Everyone was throwing down despite tough conditions. Once it started snowing it was really hard to clear the jump. We were dropping in way above the course, getting 'bro tows' in and then speed tucking the entire way to the jump in the finals. Congrats to Molly Molligan for placing 2nd. As for me, after falling on my first 2 runs I landed my 3rd and final run clean which was good enough for 6th place.
