Paula Mitchell
Hi! I am Paula Mitchell and I love 540's and Skull Candy!
My favorite thing to ride is bottomless POW, but I am pretty keen on the half pipe too. I have been charging all over the world, mainly in Park City Utah and home base in NZ is Wanaka. Being on the NZ Development Team this season is going to be full on with training on and off the snow. I am heading to Mt Hood USA for some preseason training, and then will back for the Burton New Zealand Open and the Nokia World Cup half pipe events as well of course the 540's Skull Candy Rail Jams. If you see me about come say hi and we can take some runs.
