D.O.D.

What first attracted you to snowboarding?

Just seeing people snowboard I think. I didn’t have any videos yet and i guess the internet wasn’t really what it is today. So I think the first thing that got me really hyped was just seeing some people snowboard. Then the first day I went snowboarding I saw some people hit jumps and that was the craziest thing I had ever seen.

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My friends. I think it is really rad to see all the dudes in the videos, but riding with my friends and seeing the stuff they do firsthand that’s what really inspires me.

If you could only do ONE trick for the rest of your life what would it be?

Catch air.

What’s your dream trip? Where have you always wanted to go?

I think Japan. I have been there 2 times, but i would love to go back. Such a cool country.

Highlight of last season?

I think last season in general was a highlight. We had a really good winter here in Norway so we got to ride a lot of fun spots at home. The most snow I have ever seen in Oslo.

Powder day, sun spring park laps or urban exploration mission?

I like them all, but nothing beats a good powder day with a good crew.

Words of wisdom?

Eat fish.
