Snowboard Xsports Club Peru is a nonprofit organization that aims to develop the snow sports in Peru promoting it thought sandboard, a similar sport to snowboard but on the sand, with the social project ‘Sueños de Arena’ and the ‘Circuito Peruano de Sandboard’, a national competition in five Peruvian regions. We consider the sand is a perfect opportunity to bring children and youth to snow sports and eventually make it into the world of the professional snowboard.
The greatest example of this starting method is our Athlete and Head Coach, Victor Chavez, who started sandboard at the age of 7 and now is competing in the FIS Snowboard Cross Circuit. He also is the first Peruvian ever to qualify for the FIS Snowboard World Championships – Park City 2019. Now, he is following his dream to qualify for the Winter Olympics in Beijing 2022 as a Scholarship Holder supported by Olympic Solidarity of International Olympic Committee.
