Stan Regan has the world at his feet after he was signed to be a sponsored snowboarder at Snozone in Milton Keynes.
The 10-year-old from Leighton Buzzard has only boarding for less than a year after joining dad Rob out on the slopes, and instantly got a taste for the sport.
Learning the basics at one of Snozone’s camps, Stan showed natural ability and no fear and was soon back on the slope to further his abilities.
“He took to it straight away,” said mum Charlotte. “After his initial course, he was asked to join the academy, and it has gone from there.”
His performances and style on the snow have promoted Snozone to name the youngster as one of their sponsored riders.
Thom Boddington, Head of Freestyle at Snozone, added: “Stan’s a great boarder so we’re really pleased to have him as a sponsored rider.
“We want to try him out in different disciplines and help his career progress.”
Stan will compete in his first freestyle competition next month, but is keeping his feet on the ground for now.
“I’d love to become an instructor at Snozone,” he said. “I love using different boards, it’s a lot of fun.”
