Elijah is an 11 year old snow stoked grom. Born in San Diego and raised in Oregon, Elijah has been snowboarding for 6 years and is starting to hit his stride. A student of all aspects of snowboarding, Elijah has been lucky enough to find the podium in a variety of different competitions. But while the competitions are fun, Elijah prefers freeriding the natural transition at Mt. Bachelor and his favorite thing is scoring deep blower pow on his grom sized Snoplank boards. When he's not snowboarding, Elijah gets straight A's at school and spends his free time skateboarding, surfing, drawing, training jiu jitsu, playing soccer and running cross county and track.
This winter Elijah expects that it will snow more than ever before and he intends to shred everything and anything. From park to pipe to freeriding to before school dawn patrol pow missions with his dad, Elijah is ready to attack it all. He's looking forward to a variety of competitions including the Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge, and he's hoping for a lottery spot in the Legendary Banked Slalom. Additionally he's planning to explore snow zones in different states, hit a few urban handrails, and push further off of the resorts to learn as much as he can about the backcountry and splitboarding.
