Born on Kauai and raised in Lake Tahoe, California, Elena Hight is one of professional snowboarding’s shining stars. At 13-years-old, Elena became the first female to land a 900 in competition; and in 2013, she became the first snowboarder, male or female, to land a double backside alley-oop rodeo at the Winter X Games Superpipe finals in Aspen, Colorado. Now at 24-years-old, she’s already a two-time Olympian and quickly asserted herself as one of the most recognized females in the sport. In addition to snowboarding, Elena’s passion for running, yoga, surfing and cooking balance her love for living an active, healthy life. Elena’s personality is often described as the “All-American” girl next door with an incredible athletic talent.
Move to the beat of your heart. What is it that makes your heart beat, makes you feel truly alive? The smallest bite of something decadent, pushing yourself beyond your perceived limits, or finding silence amongst the chaos? Heart is a compilation of the things, people, ideas, and creations that brighten my days, encourage me, help me step up to any challenge, and enrich my life. In sharing heart my only intention is that something that has helped me on my journey could help another heart shine.
