Southern California girl Maddie Mastro put herself on the map with authority in 2016, transitioning from Rev Tour success straight to the finals of elite contests around the world. She made her first Olympic team in 2018 at the age of 17. With a big bag of tricks that includes Haakonflips, cripplers and McTwists, Mastro is just beginning to make her mark on professional snowboarding.
Like many snowboarders, Mastro began on skis at the age of two before her parents bought her a pink board when she was six years old. Mastro doesn't remember much about her first contest except sitting on her dad's knee complaining that her "stomach hurt." She had butterflies.
OFF THE SNOW
An active girl, Mastro keeps busy. She had to give up a spot on a club soccer team to focus on snowboarding, but she likes to surf and spend time outdoors. She is also especially proud of her academic achievements--something that isn't easy when you're traveling the world to compete.
