  1. Dear Sina,
    Well done!! I watched your fantastic snowboarding in the Sochi Olympics. I believe you deserved to get a medal. Your behaviour was brelliant with your competitors and I like your happiness and kindness that time , although maybe you were upset for the result. I love your style inside and outside of snowboarding. I hope you’ll obtain valuable medals next the Olympics.
    I have just a question that are you originally from Iran? Because your name and family is very familiar for me.
    Anyway, just keep going ahead and I wish you, all the best.

    Kind regards,


  2. Sina

    Congratulations on your performance in the Sochi slopestyle!
    I really enjoyed watching your runs & am so sorry you weren’t in the medals.
    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you.

    Best of luck,

  3. Dear Sina I have a question: Are you Armenian? Because your last name ends -ian, like armenian last name.And I know there are many armenians living in Suiss.First of all-Charles Aznavour, famous armenian-francais singer. OK sweetheart.Good luck.

  4. Hi Sina,

    I just wanted to say I love your blog and all the amazing photos you’ve uploaded. I’m a very casual snowboarder and I was just curious what its like to compete on the big stages you’re accustomed to? Do all the cameras and people watching you ever make you nervous? Do you still find yourself having fun with snowboarding when you have to practice to much to compete at your level? Thank you so much!


    1. Hi Rayan, thanks a lot for the message! hope you are doing well and this answer finds you 🙂 i think snowboarding is all about the fun, once you ride without passion you won’t be good anymore! it’s all about the fun! for myself it’s nice to see people watching me while riding, of course it makes you a little bit nervous but not too much, it pushes you to ride better 😉 if i have enough from the contest scenery i pack my stuff and go riding some powder lines in the backcountry! there are a lot of different kind of ridings, so it’s never boring!
      i wish you a wonderful winter and a lot of fun on the board!!!
