Mary Rand


Mary’s home mountain isn’t even a mountain. It’s a tiny hill. But that didn’t matter. Like the rest of the diehard locals, she made the most of Yawgoo Valley, Rhode Island. Turns out the board control skills she learned among the Yawgoons crew translated nicely to the streets. And once she started filming, it was on. Mary was Rookie Of The Year in 2015 and backed it up with a full part in Rendered Useless, earning her TransWorld’s 2016 Reader’s Choice award. She’s now based in Seattle and on a mission to shred more pow.
