Airing Sunday, November 29, at 8:00pm Eastern Time (5:00pm Pacific Time), and re-airing several more times during the next month, pro snowboarder Marie-France Roy stars in FUEL TV’s signature 30-minute series “Firsthand.”
With a long winter season behind her, pro snowboarder Marie-France Roy looks forward to a fun, relaxing summer. She begins the off-season by traveling to Whistler, BC for a session at Camp of Champions. There, she coaches campers, but more importantly, gets some time to ride for herself.
Wherever there is snowboarding, the pressures of being a professional snowboarder are not far behind. When camp ends, Marie-France escapes to her Vancouver Island retreat. There, she makes the most of her time by sky diving and surfing with her friends. Soon, Marie-France is back on the road for a trip with the Oakley team to Las Lenas, Argentina. While the main purpose for the trip is to take photos for the upcoming catalog, Marie-France takes advantage of the wild big-mountain lines the Andes have to offer.
Her sponsors include Rome, Oakley, ThirtyTwo, etnies, Red Bull, Whistler/Blackcomb, Cilla, Axis, Magical GOGO
