Name: Elena Hight
Birthplace: Kauai, Hawaii
Currently living: South Lake Tahoe, CA
Sponsors: Volcom,Toyota, Nixon, Northstar at Tahoe, Sprint, US Snowboarding.
To us, boarding isnâ€™t just a weekend activity or momentary thrill. It brings us a sense of freedom,Â but more importantly a healthy and active lifestyle. These are also the building blocks of B4BC-Boarding for Breast Cancer, a non-profit foundation that brings awareness, education, support, and early-prevention to individuals and communities. Their ultimate vision is to celebrate life at every turn, both on and off a board and to inspire youth into positive styles of living. Today we get to talk to our snowboard team rider Elena Hight, who is a B4BC Snow Ambassador, along with Coco Ho, our surf team rider.
How long have you been affiliated with B4BC?
Elena: I have been an ambassador for B4BC for about 3 years.
Out of all the organizations , why have joined this on? What attracted you to B4BC?
Elena:Â I was attracted to B4BC because of their mission to not only educate young people about breast cancer and how it can effect them, but how B4BC believes that preventing breast cancer begins with living a healthy, active lifestyle. I truly believe that living a healthy, active lifestyle is the key to fighting so many diseases that can negatively effect our health, so I was very excited to partner with an organization that is actively spreading that message.
Has breast cancer effected anyone close to you?
Elena:Â I have been lucky enough to not have been effected by breast cancer in my lifetime yet.
Name one female in the world you look up to/highly respect and why?
Elena:Â I am extremely inspired by Serena and Venus Williams. They both overcame so much adversity to become the incredible worldwide known athletes they are today. I think its very admirable how they have taken their athletic careers to the next level and inspire women today on so many levels.
Which female in the world do you look up to and highly respect?
Coco: Thats so hard to choose! Beyonce and/or Sharapova for a lot of the same reasons-
I love their style in what they do (simply the best!) Their ambition and passion for winning or
being the best is present but not over bearing. They are stylish and super feminine when the
time is right. They live their lives publicly in the most professional way. The perfect girls in my eyes.
Because no style makes you feel as good as one thatâ€™s created for a good cause, Volcom snow has partnered up with Boarding for Breast Cancer to offer our limited edition outerwear. Not only do these exclusive pieces include a unique B4BC print specifically designed to raise awareness, we will support your purchase by donating $1 to the foundation for each garment sold. Itâ€™s a simple way to make your day on the hill that much more meaningful.

With World Cup fever at an all-time high (GO USA!) We wanted to get some insight into what it is like competing for your country on a global stage. What better person to ask than two time Olympian and reigning X Games silver medalist, Elena Hight. Elena has elevated womenâ€™s snowboarding to a whole new level by mastering tricks like the double backside alley-oop rodeo, on a half pipe no less. Stylish, strong and cool under pressure, we are proud to have Elena represent our team and ultimately represent the big USA!
1. Â What makes you proud to be American?
I am proud to be from a country that has been built on the idea that this is the land of endless possibilities! Anything you can dream of you can make happen!
2. Â To you personally, what's notably American to you?Â
When I think of American staples I think of burgers, lemonade, red, white and blue, peace signs, ice cream cones and Lynard Skynardâ€™s Sweet Home Alabama
3. Â What do you love about your hometown?
My favorite thing about my hometown is the scenery. There is nowhere else in the world like it!
4. Â First place you go to when you get home?
I love to sit by the lake first thing when I get home from traveling. Itâ€™s the most welcoming, comforting place no matter where I have been or how long I have been gone.
5. Â Best mountain(s) you've ridden in the US?
I love Kirkwood, Mt. Baker, Mammoth, Bridger Bowlâ€¦ There are too many amazing places to pick just one!
6. What was your most memorable moment ofÂ representingÂ the US at the Olympics?
My most memorable moment of representing the US at the Olympics was walking into Opening Ceremonies with Team USA in Torino. Entering that stadium in my uniform with hundreds of other athletes by my side all there to represent the US together is a feeling like nothing I have ever experienced before. It was absolutely the proudest â€śAmericanâ€ť moment I have ever had.
Happy Fourth of July! There is nothing that screams American spirit like red, white, and blue! Get into the spirit with this refreshing lemonade and enjoy it with friends, family, fun, and sun!
Âľ cup blueberries
Â˝ cup raspberries
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
5 cups water
Â˝ cup fresh mint leaves (I used spearmint)
Â˝ cup honey or agave
Squeeze lemons into a large pitcher. Add in honey and stir until honey is mixed in. It is best to add the honey now before cold water and ice so that it doesnâ€™t harden with the cold before it mixes into the liquid. Add water to pitcher. Muddle together ÂĽ cup blueberries and ÂĽ cup mint leaves. Add in muddled mixture to pitcher. Thinly slice remaining lemon. Add remaining blueberries, raspberries, remaining mint leaves, and lemon slices to pitcher. Add ice, stir and enjoy!
This weekend, our women's snowboard riders were melting the snow! Killin' Â it at the Annual JLA Banked Slalom in Mammoth, as well as the 2014 Community Cup at the Keystone Resort in Colorado.
Eleven years ago snowboarding lost Jeff Anderson, one of its most passionate and influential riders. To honor Jeffâ€™s memory his brother Billy created the JLA Banked Slalom at Mammoth Mountain. This year, our girl Elena Hight won the secondÂ Annual JLA Banked Slalom!
Â Jeff Anderson memorabilia was given to the riders as the prizes.Â Elena stoked about first place, but even more on her favorite Jeffy photos of all time!
The Community Cup is dedicated to womenâ€™s snowboarding in an atmosphere ideal for women, and women only! This year our girl Christy Prior nailed it, taking home first place in Slopestyle, as well as first in theÂ Rockinâ€™ Rail Presented by Kicker Audio! Christy wasn't the only one who stole a spot in the top, Sarka Pancochova was right behind with second place in Slopestyle!
Christy dominating the competition, winningÂ Best Method & Best Rail Trick!
So proud to bring home a win! Christy Prior (middle) and Sarka Pancochova (right)
