In the 2011 Snowboard Canada Women's Annual, rider Marie-France Roy let us in on some of her life essentials, here we have those plus more of what make up her "Lusts for Life."
Travel essential A bikini—don’t want to miss those nice hot tub sessions!
Suitcase you use the most Rome duffle bag—they have served me well for over six years now!
What do you never pack enough of on a trip? Snacks! Like healthy organic granola bars and fruit.
What do you pack too much of for a trip? Clothes! Especially T-shirts.
Airline I think probably Lufthansa. They always have better service and meals.
Hot drink I'm more of a yerba maté fan—Guayaki makes good one.
Surfboard I'm getting a biscuit shaped board by a friend in town who makes boards called Cardinal Sin—so excited to ride it!
Surfing kit Oakley is getting some nice custom wetsuits right now I'm so stoked!
Shoes Etnies gave me my own colourway of the Perry Mid model which I love so much.
Jeans Axis makes surprisingly nice jeans for a boardshop brand.
Kitchen gadget My blender to makes fresh fruit smoothies everyday.
Book I'm not a big reader but I must say that The Four Agreements [by Don Miguel Ruiz] makes me look at life more positively.
Movie Super Troopers—I love when they have the maple syrup drinking contests.
Automobile Toyota Tacoma '99; it's a 4-cylinder so it's nice on gas and gets me anywhere, either surfing or sledding.
Store? Thrift stores—I like to buy used stuff, it is a really good way to be eco-friendly and you always discover precious finds.
Gift? Raewyn Reid just sent me a homemade pinhole camera in the mail, pretty sweet!
Foodie indulgence I love raw oysters—I'm crazy about them.
Wine I like Okanagan Icewine once in a while if I feel like luxury. (Inniskillin)
Condiment I enjoy green Tobasco once in awhile on breakfast sandwiches.
Face protection I like to use Pom Pom lipbalm and good sunscreen when I get up there.
Saving up for I'm saving up to pay off my house on Vancouver Island.
Bathroom counter A tooth brush, floss, soap—pretty simple.
Camera I love the ShakeIt application on my iPhone, I take pictures of my garden with it.
Last purchase Chickens to get my own eggs!
Art I really like Corey Smith’s art.
Song Most Patsy Cline or Beirut.
Nonsnowboard magazine L’actualité or Adbusters.
Gym kit Cilla makes awesome underlayers for the gym or any physical activities and they look better than Lululemons!
In your purse I don’t even have a purse.
In your glovebox Surf Wax, some maps and receipts and a cheap harmonica.
Bedside table Candles, a Lush massage bar.
Collect I collect pieces of plastic trash that washes on the beach and I make earrings which I sell to raise money for good causes.
