If I cash 1.000.000€ in the lottery then...
I would like to travel all around the world snowboarding, skateboarding and obviously having fun with my friends
 
Your house is burning...
I will take with me my computer with every high porn videos of the snow season!
 
Best Memories...
The last year snowfalls in Baqueira, every freestyle session in big jumps and the sunny powder days. I will never forget when I was going to win the Nendaz Freeride, riding too fast and I couldn’t cross the finish line
 
What means snowboarding to you?
I love snowboarding because makes me really happy. It`s a live style, out of the city stress, the corrupted system and the social pollution. You can feel extremely free. It's not only a simple sport. Best feelings in my life have been around snowboarding.
 
Has your life changed beeing a snowboard pro?
Only my privacy. Can be good or bad, but I`m so happy about snowboarding and go further than ever before. Everything helped me to make big progress, travel and learning this way of life.
 
 
What kind of rider are you? 
I'm an all-terrain rider who never stop in winter seasons. I wake up early in the morning for make the fist tracks and usually not stop in the whole day! A rail in the afternoon or night session are also pure snowboarding for me. 
 
What do you like most about Völkl Snowboards?
The full philosophy of the brand, cambers variety and materials quality.
 
The place to be?
My favourite spot is AK, I couldn´t go this year, but sure next season. So Baqueira, my ski resort, is the best. It´s a deep valley with special weather conditions, a big amount of high quality powder, awesome riders  and more sunny days than in the north of Europe.
 
Your signature trick? 
Cab 5 tail in a big rock. 
 
What is uncool, old fashioned (tricks, grabs, style...?)
I prefer small rotations in small jumps and big ones in huge jumps always with style and different grabs, depended of the year or the spot.
 
 
Which trick do you want to learn next?
Swith bs doble rodeo in pow.I can feel it!
 
How do you motivate yourself and learn new tricks?
With friends, my progression, powder, music, events, overcoming, a big snow storm, whatever...
I learn new tricks keeping the right progression or trying in powder firstable anf after in the park or in  the street.
 
You had any dangerous situations on the mountain so far? 
I have been injured sometimes freestyling but never in a dangerous situation at the mountain. You must take the right decisions there for be alive
 
Highlights of last season?
Winning in my ski resort the most important freeride event, at the Pyrenees, 
the Vans or Völkl  photo shootings in Spain or riding with the team riders and friends every day
 
Blue bird & perfect conditions – who should be in your riding crew? 
It´s a fucking pleasure riding with any friend and my crew. We always use to make big noise! ;)
 
The best Snowboard trip ever was...
Austria. Awesome. It´s cheap. Zillertal parks, the spots, and the huge mountains. I wanna come again but this time with C.K. and Simon Pircher who will guide me!
 
What stuff is in your backpack when you head up to ride or travel?
Arva ,shovel ,probe, headphones,dragon googles and maybe something to eat. 
 
 
What do you do when you are not riding? 
Skateboarding everywhere I go. In summer I use to be in Les deux Alps shaping, riding and teaching with Familia camps or working in my own snowboading school at www.escuelaemotion.com 
 
In five years I want...
I want to win some FWT events and get my snowboarding progress out of my limits.
 
 
 
LAST WORDS 
Thanks to everybody who supports me, like my sponsors, my family, the friends who take care about me or we have fun together, and for everybody who help the snowboarding go far.
