Seeing as snowboarding is like, mainstream now, and riders are equally at home posing with puppies as they are hitting handrails, we can totally justify putting a whole load of snowboarders through a celebrity lookalike app… right?
Besides, this whole ‘become a pro snowboarder and win lots of money’ game is a tough one, as these days, you stand very little chance if you aren’t sponsored by the age of 3. So anyone who doesn’t have a ‘snowboarder mom’ either has to be mature enough to make the decision to become a pro when they just started walking (still doing so like a hammered idiot), or will be producing desperate sponsor-me tapes for the rest of their lives.
And even if you ARE lucky enough to have experienced a career as a pro snowboarder, it will inevitably come to an end when said-9-year olds are kicking your middle-aged ass. But what to do then? Chances are, not everyone in the industry does it like Bataleon’s Ian Ashmore, doing a doctor’s degree in astrophysics with no sweat, so we wracked our brains on what to do instead.
Luckily, smartphones aren’t only there to Instagram your every meal, or get laid by that really cute Tinder-match, but also offer MyHeritage – an app that shows you your celebrity doppelgänger. Our suggestion: Find your doppelgänger, eliminate him or her, and take over their life – we know we will.
So sit back and enjoy our collection of the best snowboarder doppelgängers…
