The 23-year-old from Valais convinced Völkl with his creative riding as well as his image, both of which secured him a lot of coverage in well-known international magazines, such as Snowboarder (Italy), Frequency Magazine (USA) and Snowboarder MBM (Germany).
This season, the "powder grinder" will once again devote his time to various shoots, filming, and own projects in the backcountry! Examples are René Eckert's snowboard documentary on Kashmir, and his own film project. In his opinion, snowboarding is not so much about competition and results as it is about being passionate about snowboarding and pushing your limits in backcountry sessions! To him a good shot is worth way more than a number next to his name on a ranking list.
"I am super stoked to become part of the Völkl international team! The guys at Völkl work closely with us riders, and they actually appreciate our feedback on board technology and design. I am really proud to be part of the team," Martin comments on his promotion.
Völkl Snowboards is also more than happy with the Swiss. Michi Weinländer, Völkl's International Marketing Manager, comes right to the point by saying: "We are happy to welcome Martin to the international team. Time and again he surprises us with his creative riding skills, his productivity, and his professional attitude towards sponsors, photographers, and magazines. And above all, he is a really nice guy who suits our team perfectly!"
Martin’s new team mates at the Völkl international team will be some well-known riders like Aline Bock, Chris ‘CK’ Kröll and Keiji Okamoto. Keep your eyes peeled for more from the Swiss rider ... welcome to the international team!

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...
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...
