Yep, you have seen this correctly: this is a 5-year old mini shredder on a massive rainbow box in a Yoda costume. Sophia Capua has been snowboarding for two years now and is already a sponsored grom, hitting almost everything the snow park has to offer. And she obviously has enough footage for a proper mid season edit.
We’re not going to do the inevitable “When we were her age..” nonsense (although if we remember correctly, we might have just finally picked up the concept of how to use a toilet for grown-ups). Sophia is doing 180 on and switch 50-50 on boxes, jumps that are twice her size as well as powder and tree runs as if she’s never done anything else in her life. Well, at five years old she probably actually hasn’t done too much else besides that, napping and eating?
Scoring second place at a boarder x contest and first in slope style, Sophia is for sure one to watch out for in the future.
If after watching this edit, you’re thinking to yourself “Yeah, that’s totally cool and all.. but she’s so old already.” you should first think about what’s wrong with you and then cruise over here to watch 17-months old Aspen shred the hell out of the Riglet park.
