BIO

"Erin Comstock"

I grew up in North Lake Tahoe (Incline Village)  After High School I went to College in San Francisco and Played College Soccer. I then transferred to University of Utah and received my bachelors of art and started my snowboard career.  I was sponsored in 2002 by Roxy and after that I was lucky enough to get Rockstar, Park City, and Vans as my sponsors as well.

I was pro until 2013.  I decided to retire from snowboarding to have a family.  I now have a little boy and we live in Colorado.  I am able to still make it up to the mountains and I love snowboarding so much!


INTERVIEW 2015.01.14

What are you looking for to accomplish?

Since being a pro snowboarder, I am looking to  continue my education in Sports science, and to help others over come sport injuries

What would be your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement would be to train sport athletes to become their best person

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

The difficulties in Snowboarding have really come down to the politics in snowboarding.  Year after year I see Women snowboarders who work super hard are the best out there and do not receive recognition. 

"Erin Comstock"

It’s the same from when I was a kid trying to find Female riders as it is today.  There is not enough editorial of the female rider and it’s a shame because women have really grown in the sport! The average Joe shmo would be blown away at what Women do.

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

"Erin Comstock"

The most satisfying thing in the world is to accomplish a trick that you can picture in your head.  I learned that If I can picture it in my head from start to finish then it is possible.

SO then to take those steps physically and to achieve that trick is the most satisfying feeling ever!  Pushing yourself and always learning is so powerful

Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?

"Erin Comstock"

I would do a lot of practicing at the trampoline gym, in a normal gym and just by staying in shape.  IT is really important to always have your balance in check along with staying strong through your core.

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

I do a lot of Circuit training.  High intense short workouts. I am always involving upper body, core and legs in all my routines.  Plus stretching is key to preventing injury

"Erin Comstock"

What are you most nervous about when competing?

I hate competing. I am my own worse enemy.  So I guess I am most nervous about how I will react to the situation. Oh and bad weather!  That is the worst!

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

My Mom is my biggest fan! She has supported my decisions with snowboarding since day one!  Which made the journey that much more fun to achieve.

"Erin Comstock"

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

Live in the moment, cherish the little things and always be grateful.

What are your future plans?

I have already passed one exam (NASM) for being a personal trainer. I am studying for 2 more exams currently.  I really would like to work with athletes and continue to push myself as an athlete

"Erin Comstock"

What are your tips for those who begin now?

My tips would be to finish school, stay healthy, be positive and if being a pro is your dream then do what ever it takes to make it to the top!   Christy Prior is a huge example of  beating all odds to be the best!
