A wonder woman of multiple expertise, Nirvana Ortanez nonchalantly makes you realize that she's doing more in one week than you may be doing in the next month. At once easy-going, extremely passionate and always quick with a smile and a laugh, Nirvana is one of those people you feel lucky to get to meet up on the slopes or out on the waves.
Mahfia TV caught up with her recently to get to know a little more behind that infectious smile. Check out an excerpt from their interview and be sure to head over to their site to see the whole thing and about that last time she laughed so hard she cried.

Who has influenced or inspired your (skating/snowboarding/surfing) the most?
For skating, any and all girls who decided that one day they wanted to do it. That was the most terrifying part of skating to me was just trying it. Once I realized that people are there to support you falling face forwards into the bowl, those people were the literal influence to keep me going. Snowboarding and surfing was inspired by my family. My dad taught me how to surf growing up then my mom and brother had passion for snowboarding, I never looked back since. In the grand equation the people who I surround myself with are always the ones that influence/inspire me to do everything I do.
