Veda seems more comfortable on a snowboard than her own feet. With a family rooted in the scene, Veda, was introduced to snowboarding at just 3 years old. When she was 6, she began riding freestyle, and competing in local slope-style, rail-jams, and half pipe competitions. She started riding in South Lake Tahoe but her talent, and hunger for the sport has taken her all over the world. During the 19/20 season, Veda had a strong list of sponsors including; Capita Snowboards, Union Bindings, Crab Grab, Coal, and of course, The Village Board Shop. Veda has put in the work time and time again and her dedication to becoming the best female rider is inspiring. Veda had an incredible 21/22 season competing in a handful of competitions, Dew Tour, Bombhole Tour, and Goon Fest, where she won first place! She was also invited to compete at the Junior Worlds competition in Switzerland!

Serina is a veteran on the Village Board Shop team, and we are stoked to welcome her back for the 22/23 season! Serina is not only sponsored by The Village Board Shop but also, Donek snowboards, BC Goggle Co, and Local company, Mountains Calling. As a young competitor Serina has fought for a podium position every time she straps in. In 2018 she got 1st at nationals for USASA competing in GS, and slope style, and in 2020 she placed 2nd at nationals for boarder cross and the momentum has not slowed down as she has continued to keep riding hard and finishing in the top 3 at almost every competition she is apart of. Sierra at Tahoe is where you can find Serina shredding most days, but she also loves to travel and check out other mountains as well! When she's not on the mountain or training for comps Serina enjoys gymnastics and horse back riding!
Keep up with Serina!
