A student of the Stratton Mountain School and sibling to one of U.S. Snowboarding's finest riders, Serena Shaw had pondered a career in gymnastics before she set her sights on snowboarding. Almost immediately, she began tearing up the competition scene. In the 2011 season alone, Shaw checked off wins on the Rev Tour circuit and took a ninth in halfpipe as well as fifth in slopestyle during her first appearance in a World Cup competition. Such strong finishes landed her a spot on the U.S. Snowboarding Rookie Team.

Shaw kept blazing through 2013 with an invite to FIS World Championships and a top ten at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix in Park City. She won both slopestyle and halfpipe at the final stop of the U.S. Revolution Tour and took second at USASA Nationals. She also placed third at the U.S. Revolution Tour/U.S. Open qualifier, earning an invite to the prestigious Burton U.S. Open.

SERENA SAYS
I’m happy with the way my season went, but I know I can do better. I am looking forward to jumping into a new season with some new tricks!

FIRST TRACKS
Shaw's first moments on a snowboard were at the age four under the instruction of her father Marc as well as her good friend and Olympic silver medalist Lindsey Jacobellis. Her first runs were taken at Stratton Mountain and she shredded in style, wearing a pink one piece.

OFF THE SNOW
When Shaw is off snow, she can be found working out with her team at SMS, hitting the schoolbooks, and playing other sports such as skateboarding, soccer, swimming and tennis. Shaw also rides quads and dirt bikes at her house during the summer. And, of course, she likes to hang out with her friends.
