After 10 years of building her talent and winning the reputation of the “Best Female Snowboarder in the World”, Tara Dakides signs back up with
Sessions joining the U.S. Pro Team.
Sessions was Tara’s first outerwear sponsor when she first began snowboarding. “Life really does come full circle… Sessions was my first sponsor back in the day (19 years old) when a girl getting sponsored was few and far between. It’s a trip to come back after all these years with a new outlook and more experience. I’m excited to have more creative freedom with my outerwear designs and to be able to work with such great people who love to ride. Sessions is one of the few core snow/skate companies alive. I say core in the sense that they have kept it real and true with there riders and the people who work hard to build the brand. It’s nice to feel a part of helping build something and appreciated in the process. It’s good to be home!” –Tara Dakides
Tara has had many accomplishments in her career to date from Transworld and Snowboarder including winning such titles as Best Freestyle Rider, Best Overall Female Rider, Female Snowboarder of the Year, Best Rail Rider, Gold Metal Winner for the X-Games in Slopestyle and Big Air, 1st Place Vans Triple Crown, and the list goes on and on…
“Snowboarding has a lot to thank Tara for. In a time when women’s snowboarding was not as popular as it is today, Tara was breaking boundaries. She was not only progressing woman’s snowboarding but snowboarding as a whole. She paved the way for the Gretchen’s and Torah’s of today and opened up everyone’s eyes to what was possible. Cheers to you Tara and welcome back!”- Brett Butcher, Sessions Team Manager
