Model & Snowboarder Spotlight – Olya Smeshlivaya

We are switching up this edition of Model Spotlight by highlighting someone who has posed for the likes of Rip Curl and Vans.

Ok, we know that may not be a stretch from others we have featured.

Yet, we should point out that this individual’s day job is actually on the slopes.

Olya Smeshlivaya is a professional snowboarder who was born in Ukraine and moved to Russia early in her childhood. Now, you can often catch her with a board under her feet.

To give you a flavor as to what you can expect with Olya, we are mashing up an Escape with our Model Spotlight series.

Hint – expect more than snow!

Starting with a softer side…
