Evan Strong

Son of Dr. Roger and Lisa Strong, Evan Strong grew up in Hawaii and has two sisters. He took a liking to skateboarding at a young age, so much that by the age of 13, Strong had inked his first skateboarding sponsorship. Just 10 days before his 18th birthday, Strong was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a drunk driver in a head-on collision which led to the partial amputation of his left leg.

As Strong worked to gain his mobility back after the accident, he moved to Lake Tahoe in 2007 to work at a ski resort and learn how to snowboard. The rest is history as Strong then went on to win multiple X Games medals, world championship titles and world cup titles. Strong became the first male to win a gold medal in snowboarding at the Paralympic Winter Games Sochi 2014.

Strong is married to Mariah Strong and has two daughters, Indie and Isla. His hobbies include skateboarding, mountain biking, surfing, photography and rewilding.
