XGames medalist Chanelle Sladics can look back at a successful career of competing at the highest level of snowboarding. Originating from Newport Beach, she defied the odd’s of becoming one of the best slopestyle riders in the world, leading the progression of the sport for many years with her solid tricks, laid-back style and playful competitiveness.

Chanelle is a woman who always have had her hands in multiple buckets, making her transition from being a professional athlete, to hosting and commentating for TV, web and live events nearly seamless. Her valuable insight and personal background from the playing field catapulted her into big gigs like sideline reporting  and commentating at prestigious events like XGames, Winter Dew Tour, US Open and The World Championships. She has truly made her mark with her comradely and "down to earth” approach, bringing out the most honest stories and bridging the gap between spectators and athletes. 

Chanelle inhibits the rare skill of being able to visualize her ideas so clearly that they can manifest into reality. In 2014 she conceptualized, created, produced and hosted the first ever zero waste snowboard event on the planet. Her vision was to showcase the very best of female snowboarding, on a stage designed to push progression and style.  

In 2012 she showed why she is a leader in her community and how she always two steps ahead by creating and producing the 22 min adventure documentary “Explore Iceland with One Life” on Outside TV. The film showcased environmental initiatives, split boarding, traveling and community. Her passion to support her snowboard industry extends to  her role on the advisory board for the World Snowboard Tour, Womens Sports Foundation and helped initiate the Global Snowboarders Alliance

Her passion to create and ability to execute, star, lead and produce projects, is truly a unique combination; that’s maybe why many call her a multitasking genius. 

With a strong love for the mountains and oceans and a genuine drive to provide solutions, Chanelle started a reusable glass drinking straw company in 2010 with her family, called Simply Straws. By using her platform as a professional athlete to help educate and shine light on the environmental issues that plastic is causing, Chanelle can confidently say that she is a part of the solution. 

Chanelle is also a certified yoga teacher and has been coaching at The Oakley Progression Sessions for over 5 years.  Her passion to teach and her quirky gypsy yoga vibes creates a safe space to get weird, try new things, and expedite the learning process. In an effort to expand her knowledge base and safety, she recently completed her Wilderness First Response certification. She doesn't stop there- with a growing love for food and living a healthy vibrant lifestyle, Chanelle has immersed herself into the world of agriculture, specifically permaculture.  In 2013 she graduated her certificate course in permaculture design, a sustainable approach to both farming and architecture.

There is no telling what Chanelle will do next, but you can always count on her passion, creativity, attention to detail, yearn for sustainable solutions and love for health.
