Full Moon seeks to highlight those that have led the path to the future of snowboarding. They are inspired by many and share in the stoke with these legends and off the mountain. Here are a few of leading ladies that helped inspire this film.
One of the first women on the scene in snowboarding, Circe carved out her own spot in snowboarding as one of the very few women filming with the guys. Her business sense has carried her through a strong career as a pro, and she is now one of the most successful action sports agents in snowboarding and beyond.
The first woman to win Winter X Games Gold, Tina Basich is a true pioneer of women’s snowboarding. Her stories of the first days of snowboarding have made her the encyclopedia of the history of snowboarding to the Full Moon crew. The co-founder of Boarding for Breast Cancer, Tina now focuses her energy on family, DJ’ing, and art— a true creative on snow and off.
Undoubtedly one of the most recognized names in snowboarding, Tara Dakides was snowboarding’s “it chick” for the entirety of her long career. With enough accolades to fill a library, Tara was every snowboard girl’s inspiration and dream. She now resides in Aspen, CO and is a mother of two.
Barrett Christy’s Take:
“I’m really impressed with the progression of women’s snowboarding over the last 10+ years. There are more women to look up to and the younger generations have more exposure to badass women in film and in contests, so they see what’s possible and keep raising the bar higher. I’m such a fan of snowboarding and I love watching the girls progress. Their grace and strength makes snowboarding look fun and that keeps me inspired to ride powder every chance I get!”
