Seen Snowboarding Presents: “From the Bottom of One’s Heart”

| July 29th, 2022 |

We’ve been patiently awaiting this one. Honestly we’ve been too patient—representation like this is long overdue. That’s why, from the bottom of our hearts, we’re grateful for Seen Snowboarding and everything they’re doing for the sport and LGTBQIA+ community at large.

So, without further ado, watch their newest video and let the riding, and note below, speak for itself.

A note from Seen Snowboarding:

Dear viewer,

This video is dedicated to all the queer and trans snowboarders and viewers everywhere. We love you. We thank you for being exactly who you are. We also want you to know that this video does not by any means represent the entirety of queer snowboarding that is happening right now, in the past, or what is to come. There are so many queer riders and legends not included in this film and we are sorry if you still don’t feel seen or represented by us or by snowboarding. There is a long way to go. We hope though that this video can spark some inspiration for more folks to feel like snowboarding is for them, for more videos to be made, more norms to be challenged, and more diverse expression and crews on the hill and in the industry. Thank you for being here.

With love,

Seen Snowboarding
