Sports Babe of the Day: Hana Beaman, Professional  American Snowboarder

If you ever watched the X Games or love the sport of snowboarding, you will need no introduction to our next babe. Hana Beaman has been hitting the slops on a competitive level for the past 25 years. Yes, you read that correctly, Hana has been competitive snowboarder for 25 years! The snowboard extraordinaire has competed in numerous X-Games, Roxy Chicken Jams and Burton US Opens and has consistent top 10 rankings in international competitions. She has graced many magazine covers over the years, had a series of webisodes for Snowboarder Magazine in 2011 and has been sponsored by everyone from Nixon to Rockstar, etc. Beaman primarily competes in slopestyle events and is constantly working on new tricks to add to her already impressive trick list. She has a clear love for the outdoors and unlike most of us, learning to snowboard was as standard for her as learning to ride a bike is for the rest of us. No wonder she dominates the slopes everytime she hits them.  So lets get to know this snowboarding champ.
