Maggie Phipps is an up and coming competitive snowboarder, a sport passed down from her father.

At only 14 years old, Maggie is already a brand ambassador for SheShreds. When the snow melts from the mountains, all boarders try to find a way to keep their muscle memory intact. Many, including Maggie, pick up skateboarding, but more often than not, you’ll find her on the water.

Instead of wakeboarding, which according to Maggie uses different muscles, she competes in wakesurfing events to stay sharp. Maggie will attend the Wake UP Pineview event July 29-30, riding and helping out in preparation to compete at the World Series of Wakesurfing Tour Stop.

This last snow season, she nailed many solid tricks, and hopes to do the same during the summer season. Maggie also hopes to make it first as an amateur pro on the slopes before continuing her professional snowboarding quest. For more information on Maggie, click here.
