A professional since 2005, Sina Candrian indirectly became a professional snowboarder but she was originally racing. Realizing after some time that racing was not fulfilling her passion for riding, she decided to walk away from competition. Though, it didn’t take long for Candrian to return to her roots, only this time she would look to freestyle for new forms of expression. Today, Canadian is a strong competition in both pipe and Slopestyle with a keen awareness while flying through the air. While representing her home country of Switzerland at the 2014 Sochi Games, Candrian made history by landing the first-ever 1080 in women’s competition at the debut of Slopestyle to the Winter Olympics.
