Elijah is the middle child in possibly the most accomplished snowboarding family of all time, though his older brother Abe and younger sister Hannah are also top riders.
A member of the 2005 U.S. Snowboard B Team and an unabating competitor, Elijah competed in more major halfpipe events through the '04 season than any other WX'05 superpipe competitor, including all three VTCs and all three U.S. Grand Prixs. He finished the '03 season ranked fourth in the world for halfpipe by the WSF, as well as fifth overall in the Vans Triple Crown and second overall in the Grand Prix series.
He kept a modest profile through the 2006-2007 season following a serious accident in November of 2005, spending some time getting his head and riding confidence back. But don’t worry about Elijah, his unwavering sense of competition will keep him among the best of the best for years to come.
