My name is Seth Hill and I am a professional snowboarder, this is my 6th year fully living off snowboarding and living the dream as one could say. For my first 4 years as a pro snowboarder I focused mainly around contests and the contest circuit, competing in the world snowboard tour as well as FIS and the more sanctioned events. At my prime I was ranked 7th in the US and 18th overall in the world.

After breaking my back and going into surgery July 2nd of 2014 things changed a bit for what I knew of my life. No it did not slow down my snowboarding but made me take a second look at what made me happy. I love the contest world but was definitely not in love with competing.

Since then I filmed, produced and stared in my own snowboard documentary REALLY GOTTA WANNA which can be purchased HERE and tells the story of what really goes into being a professional snowboarder.
Really Gotta Wanna on Itunes
After taking a year focusing more behind the lens I have decided to spend this year more in front of one and working on filming a video part called "Dont call it comeback" which will be featured on many of the main snowboard media outlets around the world.
Even with all the filming, I do still have a passion to compete when its a contest I want to do. One of those contests is Dew Tour, this year I got a last minute invite to compete in the Street style event in down town Breckenridge and ended up on the podium. Pretty sweet feeling after being just on the bubble for 3 years of this event. Dew Tour Recap
Aside from that I am working closely with my main sponsor Sims Snowboards. I am putting out a monthly edit, as well as helping build the brand back up to what it once was. (If you would like to see those edits please follow to my youtube channel or watch below) SUBSCRIBE
One might think that being on the cusp of never walking again would slow me down or even make me revalue if snowboarding is worth it, but it has done none of the sort, it has pushed me to get stronger, work harder and appreciate what a blessing Ive been given and to never give up on my dreams.
I hope you enjoy my blogs, the content I produce and follow my career because as much as I love doing these things for myself, you all are the ones that make it worth it.
Thank you for spending some of your precious time checking in on my career and I would love to hear more of what you would all like to see.
Have a good one, and remember to stay sideways and loving life.
