Hawaii, which is more known for its surfers than snowboarders, was actually a breeding ground for Elena Hight. The Kauai-born Hight learned to surf when she was only nine months old, which lead to her being a snowboarder after her family moved to Idaho when she was seven. Whether she's hanging ten or shredding down a mountain, the two-time Olympian has always been able to balance life and career.
