Hana Beaman’s Ballsy Hump Day – YoBeat

Photo: Crispin Cannon

When you think about female snowboarders who rip you think about Hana Beaman. No, scratch that. When you think about people who rule at snowboarding you think about Hana Beaman. She fucking charges. Lays it out there. Has huge balls and they are made of steel. She can huck the Mt. Baker road gap. Effortlessly. Large backcountry lines? Not a problem. She was the first and only female rider for Grenade. She drives a bigger truck than you, rides motorcycles, can shotgun a beer and possibly was a sledneck in her past life. The Olympics? She might go for gold and start another cold war with Russia. In an old sausage factory of stale weiners, Hana truly stands out and her influence on the last 10+ years of female progression in snowboarding cannot be understated. Most importantly, she is doing what we all love. Snowboarding till the wheels fall off.

So when did you realize you didn’t have any balls?

Probably when I was about four (laughing). I was like, “oh I am girl!”

 

How did you get addicted to the shred?

Oh man, I dunno? It was kind of like how kids go play soccer when they are little and just get into it. Snowboarding kind of became my after school activity and then I think when I was 15 or so i finally saw a snowboard video. I didn’t even know those existed, really. Whoa, thats crazy! People do this for a living? Thats kind of where my perspective on snowboarding came from, like “I want to do that! That’s my deal.” I got into the park. That was the hook.

Ride Farah Review by Wired Magazine

Ride Farah

Considering how many boards are touted as having “all-mountain” capabilities, very few manage to live up to the name. Ride’s Farah ($500) is one of those rare all-mountain boards that actually, truly rocks on every part of the resort.

The Farah is a fast board, and not for the faint of heart. It flies down just about anything. I easily bombed across traverses that other boards got stuck on. Ride’s hybrid all-mountain rocker puts a camber zone underfoot and a little rocker at the nose. This keeps it super responsive with some of the best edge control I’ve encountered — even through the chop or on the ice. The early-season conditions we were riding in were far from ideal — ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon — but carving was a blast on everything.

Don’t forget, all-mountain includes the park too. Even though it’s a stiff board overall, Ride’s LSD (ladies-specific design) ensures that the board has just enough pop when you need it, so even park noobs will feel rad. — Karissa Bell
