Welcome to Still Stoked.
Still Stoked was established in 2008 by snowboarder, surfer, and production maestro, Alexa Hohenberg. After making one of the first all-female snowboard movies Snow Balls, back in 2005, Alexa still wasn’t satisfied with the availability of female-focused stories in the media. Inherent to the belief that ‘it is hard to be what they can’t see’, and motivated by research and her own experience wanting to be a professional snowboarder but having limited access to stories of other women to motivate and inspire her, Alexa started Still Stoked.
Still Stoked’s Mission:
To tell the strong female-inspired stories we wished were available when we were younger.
I wanted to create a place to tell the stories that I wished were available when I was a kid. You know… the stories of strong women out there doing AMAZING things. Their adventures gone right and adventures gone wrong. Athletes I look up to, and advice from others that have created a life where the passion fuels what they do. These are the stories I have always wanted to read. When I was younger, they weren’t accessible to show me that I could do it too. I believe it is hard to be what you can’t see.
– Alexa Hohenberg, founder of Still Stoked.
