Still Stoked is a website for adventurous women in action sports

About

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.
