Women’s snowboarding has never been stronger. In fact, women’s sport in general. The ladies are leading the way.
The latest example of that is a new film project FABRIC. The brainchild of Canadian big-mountain snowboarder Robin Van Gyn.
Fabric is a 5 episode documentary chronicling the lives of an elite group of female athletes, artists, and activists across snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding. The episodes center on the topics of Knowledge, Connection, Activism, Cultural Heritage, and Community.
Featuring Paige Alms, Izzi Gomez, Leah Dawson, Sanoa Olin, Textured Waves, Mainei Kinimaka and Hanna Scott in surf; Estelle Pensiero, Robin Van Gyn, Jessa Gilbert, Marie France Roy, Irie Smith, Spencer O’Brien, Leanne Pelosi in Snow; and Kristen Ebeling, Juliette Pelchat, and Hannah Eddy in Skate.
Debuting fall 2021, FABRIC captures a level of talent, athleticism, and grit seldom seen in men’s or women’s action sports, and highlights the ways in which individual experiences are more connective than we can ever imagine.
