About Elena

Now 27, Elena will make her thirteenth X Games appearance in 2017. She's a five-time medalist (3 silver, 2 bronze). She was the first female to land a 900 in competition, way back in 2003, when she was just 13. In 2013, Elena again made history when she landed a double alley-oop backside rodeo at XG Aspen, becoming the first woman to land a double cork in any competition and the first person male or female to perform that specific trick in a comp. Passionate about healthy living and conserving the environment, Elena is busy with Protect Our Winters (POW) and Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) when she's not on her board; she'll be sporting a Volcom B4BC jacket at X Games Aspen.
