9780060532208: Pretty Good for a Girl: The Autobiography of a Snowboarding Pioneer

When Tina Basich grabbed her rented snowboard and headed to the mountains in Lake Tahoe, snowboarding wasn't even considered a sport . . . yet. It was the beginning, and could have easily gone the way of many other sports and become dominated by male-driven competition.

But not with Tina on the scene . . .

Comments like "You're pretty good . . . for a girl" only pushed her harder to be the best and to prove she was more than just a token player on the slopes. Representing for women everywhere, she became a snowboarding all-star, started her own signature board and clothing lines for women, founded Boarding for Breast Cancer, and followed her heart, which led her on the adventure of a lifetime.

This is her story.

About the Author:

Tina Basich is an artist, musician, and professional snowboarder who was born and raised in Sacramento, California.

She lives in Northern California.



Kathleen Gasperini is a writer and an activist. She founded W.i.G. magazine and cofounded Boarding for Breast Cancer and Label Networks. Her writing has appeared in numerous action-sports and alternative publications during the past thirteen years, and she is a frequent speaker about youth culture. She lives in Venice, California.
