Kai Matthews  2002-2021

It is with great sadness that we share the news that former NS Snowboard Provincial Team athlete, Kai Matthews passed away earlier this week.

Kai grew up within the NS Snowboard community as a member of our Provincial Freestyle Team and was an incredibly dedicated and accomplished athlete. Kai competed at Canada Snowboard Nationals in 2016, 2017 and 2018, represented Team Nova Scotia at the 2019 Canada Winter Games and was a recipient of the 2017 Joel Boylan Award.

Kai will be remembered by his NS Snowboard friends and teammates as an amazing athlete, a kind soul and a passionate snowboarder.

Our thoughts are with Norrie, Kari, Vea and their extended family during this difficult time.

The Matthews Family has requested that donations in Kai’s memory be directed to Halifax County Soccer Club (HCU) or Nova Scotia Snowboard. Donations received by NS Snowboard will be used to fund an annual award in memory of Kai Matthews.
