Italian company Hostile Snowboards welcomes its first female team member, Cortina ripper Mariapia Ghedina.
PJ – the most call her like that – is really well known both in the National territory and not, with podiums and heavy results in famous contests here and there.
Mariapia is already testing the 2012-13 prototypes and surely will help the design team to develop top notch female gear in the next future.
Marco Comisi, Hostile Team Manager, said “It’s awesome to have such a chick like PJ on board. I always admired her style and the way he ripped all the terrains with so much ease”.
Mariapia will continue to ride with Drake in the binding team and will wear Northwave boots.
About Hostile Snowboards
Hostile history began in 1990 from Andrea Roà and his father Gianni, who became shop owners and heavy snowboard pushers since the beginning.
In 1999 they consolidated their dream calling it Hostile snowboards; since the beginning they were quality maniacs before corporate image geniuses, so they started doin their things in the local area, developing year after year quality but still affordable product for everyone, from the beginner to the pro rider.
13 years later Hostile is a well known name in Italy and count on a loyal team of heavy rippers who bring the Hostile flag around, and and ambassador like Alessandro Barbero, BMX pro rider, friend and still a dam’ good rider on a snowboard deck.
