The first part of the “Women in Snowboarding – A History” series delves
into the complexities of being a female snowboard athlete and the
development of the female side of the sport. Early pioneers such as Tara
Dakides, Jenna Meyen and Stine Brun-Kjeldaas, talk about the early days
of snowboarding and how women pushed their way into the spotlight and
began staking their own claim.
Tara, Jana and Stine witnessed how prize money at contests slowly began

shift away from women wearing men’s clothing with the emergence of
female snowboard clothing brands. Before that, “The girls where not
allowed to be seen as girls at all,” says Stine.
