We recently took our Global Women's team to Kitzsteinhorn in Austria for some long over due, end of season catching up. It turned out to be a trip where stars aligned in our favor and we managed to film and shoot some insane footage in just a couple days.
The super rad Yalda Walter from Onboard joined us and sat down and talked to Christy about her joining our Volcom Family! This is how Yalda wraps up our fresh team addition in a couple sentences but do go and read the full interview on their webpage.
"It may be popular right now to start snowboarding when you’ve still not figured out how to use a toilet, but not all hope is lost. If you’re Christy Prior, you could also well await the end of the most horrible phase of your life – puberty – then pick up snowboarding and go straight on to becoming a sponsored pro. The 25-year old Kiwi ripper did some serious hustling before ending up in the mighty snowboarding circus but now Christy’s just bossed her second season in the big comps. With her stacked bag of tricks, some proper air time and technical rail riding, she for sure sticks out of the masses and is one to remember" - Yalda Walter
