Transfer | Richie Carroll
You’ve probably never heard of Tess Coady before but it’s a name you’re going to start seeing and hearing a lot more of in the snowboard scene. Tess is a 16 year old snowboarder who bases herself in Jindabyne, NSW for the Australian winters and destroys everything in sight with her board, boasting style, control and attitude far beyond her years.
Tess is a breath of fresh air from the child snowboarding prodigy’s, offering a fun and relaxed approach to competition and continually progressing on her snowboard.
Tess this week placed 6th in the Mammoth World Cup Snowboarding Slopestyle event, competing against the best female snowboarders in the world. Although the weather sucked in the finals, Tess overall dominated among the top field of riders across the event, securing a spot in the 8 person final on the previous day with a qualifying run of 72.66.
We caught up with Tess to have a quick chat…
Tess! Congratulations on the result…6th place…that’s amazing. Tell me about who you were up against? Was it a bit surreal competing alongside your idols?
What are your plans for the rest of the season?
Wow, sounds like a busy schedule. Tell me, what was your recipe for success heading into this competition?
