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!

This video is of a backside 7... a trick that has not come easily for me and was my number 1 goal for summer camp. I'm pretty stoked that I got this today, now just a matter of perfecting it.

Glacier Photoshoot with Robbie P

Summer has arrived in earnest here in Whistler! By that I mean 30 degrees Celsius days of non stop sunshine. And here we are trying to hold on to the last (huge) patch of snow left on the mountain. Anyways WVSC operator Rob Picard was kind enough to donate his time and talents to us for a day to get these (awesome) photos. Thanks Rob!

Summer camp is on!

Camp of Champions is going off right now which means its summer snowboarding time!

Last week kicked off the glacier riding season at Whistler and it was a good one. I'm going to put up a shot from each session on the newest Summer Snowboard Shot Sundays (S4)!

I managed to score one of the best jobs at camp. I'm supervising/security at the compound, where the kids hang out after their day on the hill, skateboarding, playing games and doing whatever they can to get product. Good times :)
