Summer Fenton wins the 2010 Gatorade Free Flow Tour at age 15. Look out for this ripping up-and-coming Zeal athlete!



We got some amazing news this weekend from ZEAL Snowboarder Summer Fenton—as one of the top-10 US women halfpipe snowboarders she has pre qualified for the 2014 Sochi Games, putting her in a great spot to make the team.


Here’s the note Summer sent:



“I’m super STOKED! It’s all starting to become real to me… I got drug tested for the first time last week with the United States Doping Agency, the people who work for the Olympics, and they just banged on my door—it was a crazy long awkward procedure and I also registered for the Olympics too which was pretty cool. It doesn’t mean that I’m in the Olympics yet it is just saying that I’m a hopeful.”


It’s definitely getting real and we’re all rallying around Summer as she makes her bid for the 2014 Olympics! If you’re not familiar with Fenton, check out this edit she made this summer of her amazing, all around boardsports skills:
