My super sweet olympic days

Here's a little review from team rider Birgit Rofner about the YOG from January 2012 ...

Birgit: "Thanks to my coach Daniela Bodner I had the chance to took part at the first Youth Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck. Twelve days full of pleasure and excitement.

As a part of the Austrian olympic team I started in the category 'Snowboard Slopestyle'. After a good qualification round I made it to the finals which was really cool at this point. At the end of the day I got eight and I'm very proud of my self for being the only Austrian rider in the top 10 ... wether it's girls or boys ;)

The contest went down at Kühtai which is luckily my favorite home resort. Thanks to the short distance from home a lot of my friends as well as my family came to support me which was a great motivation. I even got my own supporters club and I had the chance to give away some of my lovely autograph cards.

All in all I had a blast at this great event ... medal ceremonies, concerts, funny dinners with athletes from over 70 different nations, annoying security checks and great luxury with our own luggage carrier, physiotherapist, doctor and so on ...

My new personal goal: the olympic games 2014 in Russia ;)
"

By the way ... Völkl team rider Andre Escobar from Chile got ninth at the snowboard slopestyle men.

SURF, SNOW & SIESTA

(05.08.2014)

There are only a few places on the planet where you can shred waves and powder on the same day. Cantabria in the North of Spain is one of them; embedded between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees it takes less than one hour to switch from surfing to snowboarding! That's what the Völkl riders Simon Pircher and Chris 'CK' Kröll did last March when they participated in the Obsession A2 Fusssion Surf & Snow Contest...[more]

INTO THE WILD

(29.07.2014)

There’s no place on earth as beautiful yet simultaneously so hostile as the remote area at the tip of South America, Patagonia. In the blink of an eye the weather can change, with only minutes between bluebird and whiteout. However, those patient enough to wait for this hot-tempered diva to calm down will be rewarded with the finest powder, virgin lines and steep couloirs. Our team rider Martin 'Seili' Seiler is one such man...[more]
