Meet Erika Vikander

For the past decade plus Erika Vikander has been focused on being a top competitor both in Slopestyle and most recently freeride snowboarding. After many years of competition snowboarding, Erika is shifting her focus away from contests towards filming and riding really good snow. Erika has already proven that she is an incredible freerider and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.

Erika is passionate about travel, meeting new people, and absorbing new cultures. She is especially passionate about sustainability. Thanks for being a part of the Zeal team Erika!

Why did you join the Zeal Family as an Ambassador and how do the brand's pillars of Use Less, Give Back and Explore More resonate with you?

I was so excited to join the Zeal family as their values hold true to my beliefs and the beliefs of all of my main sponsors. The idea of using less and giving back is something we can all explore a little bit more, but why not look stylish in sustainable gear while doing so? I am passionate about protecting the places I love in nature and partnering with companies who also have the same mindset helps to inspire others to think twice about how their personal footprint impacts the overall picture."
