Silje Norendal is really, really good at snowboarding and as such has found herself hooked up on the swelling Planet Sports pro team.
If we write any more we’ll run the risk of crossing the line into a smutty place surrounded by old men in long, brown macs with leery look and let ourselves, yourselves and Silje down. So here is the Planet Sports chat. Nice work Silje, keep on ripping!
Riders from Norway seem to be born with shred talent, but on the other hand must inevitably follow in the the great footsteps of icons such as Torstein Horgmo or the unforgettable Terje Haakonsen.
Silje Norendal is a young woman who almost seems to have a playful approach to this heritage. While other girls were playing with dolls or riding a bike without stabilisers for the first time, the sweet Silje, at the tender age of 4 years, had already started snowboarding on the stormy slopes of Norway.
Since 1999 she’s participated in international events between Strandafjellet and Lake Tahoe, and at the young age of 18 is almost a veteran on the contest circuit. Not without a reason has she won the silver medal at the Winter X Games as well as a place between the exclusive Planet Sports team.
We are incredibly happy about this top-class newcomer and also Torstein can be happy about his Norwegian compatriot, which will twist the guys not only due to her snowboarding skills but also because of her charming appearance.
Hjertelig velkommen, Silje!
