Great snowboarders need snow right? They’ve all been frolicking in the pow since birth yea? No, not necessarily. Sure you’ve got the wonderkids who grew up in the shadows of Mammoth and Whistler or the Scandinavians who have only ever known snow, but there’s a reel of incredible riders who’ve grown up in flat, temperate countries and still absolutely kill it in the mountains.

We’ve got guys from Belgium, Australia and even little old blighty in our list but don’t be underestimating them just because they’re not from Canada or the US, these guys are awesome and representing for the 90% of the word that doesn’t have a mountain in its backgarden.
