Q & A

How did last season go, any highlights or low points?

I’ve been thru ups and downs last season. I started the season strong with a trip to Korea which was really sick! Then when I got back, first street session, I hurt myself pretty bad. I slammed my knee and hip. I was out from mid-December until February. Since then I have been on the road. I went to eastern Canada, Japan and the United States west coast. Now I’m in Norway on a road trip from Germany thru Denmark and Sweden. It’s pretty sick so far!

Favorite or most memorable trip you have ever been on?

Last year I went to Chile on a heli trip. It was really late in the season and when we arrived the temperature was pretty hot. The first day on hill was shitty and the second day we took the heli out and it was all time! We spent 10days there and we rode sick lines and cliffs the whole time!

What’s your version of living the dream?

Doing whatever you like and making a living out of it.

Worst bet you’ve ever lost?

Uhmm, nothing to crazy, probably something like I had to go jump into freezing cold water while it was snowing.

What snowboarder have you always idolized?

Jussi Oksanen and David Benedek

What do you think your spirit animal is?

No idea, a cat maybe?

Snowboarding achievement you are most proud of?

I don’t know, I don’t snowboard it to get medals. I’m happy about DejaVu and winning movie of the year. We really couldn’t have asked for more.

Would you rather?

Front board a double kink, backflip a road gap or hike for early season lines?

I’ll go for a hike.

Film a video part, compete in the contest circuit or free ride resorts all season?

Film a video part

Get a sketchy leg tat, get your hair cut into a mullet or shave a moustache?

The moustache

Go cliff jumping, fishing or skateboarding?

I’m pretty good at all three of those during the Summer.

Shot-gun a beer, rip a shot of whiskey or sip champagne?

Same here…pretty standard.

Throw a nasty euro carve on fresh corduroy, unleash a “Perfect” method anytime or drop an untouched pillow line?

The pillow line

Start your own brand, work in the industry or retire to a cabin in the backcountry?

Uhm…maybe the cabin but probably start my own brand.
