Our Graphics explained: the Jewel of the Ave Maria snowboard
The Virgin Mary crowned as the Queen of Heaven and Earth adorns the tip of the Ave Maria.
As St. Louis Marie de Montfort wrote: “We never give more honor to Jesus than when we honor his Mother, and we honor her simply and solely to honor him all the more perfectly. We go to her only as a way leading to the goal we seek—Jesus, her Son.”
The fade-out background floral image on the tip and tail is of the four-petaled flower from the tunic of the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. More information.
Totus Tuus - a nod to St. Pope John Paul II.
"Jesus gives his Mother to you so that she will comfort you with her tenderness. She will discharge her ministry as a mother and train you and mold you until Christ is fully formed in you. This is why I now wish to repeat the motto of my episcopal and pontifical service: "Totus tuus."(completely yours) Throughout my life I have experienced the loving and forceful presence of the Mother of Our Lord. Mary accompanies me every day in the fulfillment of my mission as successor of Peter. Mary is the Mother of divine grace, because she is the Mother of the Author of grace. Entrust yourselves to her with complete confidence!" (John Paul II, "Message of the Holy Father John Paul II for the 18th World Youth Day," March 8, 2003, 3-4.)

The interlocking A and M - representative of Ave Maria
The Ave Maria base. No large company logos (everyone does that), and no selling out. What better way to give glory and honor to the Blessed Mother than to literally shout it from the mountaintops?
Ave Maria is Latin for Hail Mary and comes directly from scripture. Latin is the original sacred language of the Holy Mass with the power to dispel demons.
When the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced she would be God’s instrument so that the Word could become Flesh, he said to her “Ave Maria, gracia plena, Dominus tecum“, “Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you“, (Luke 1: 28)
St. Elizabeth also was divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit to greet Mary with: “Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventures tui” (Jesus), “blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb” (Jesus). Luke 1: 42
