If I cash 1.000.000€ in the lottery then...

I would buy myself a small house with a big garage and a massive snowboard spot in the back yard. And get my wife booobs done

Your house is burning...

I'm saving my wife, dog, and laptop

What do you like most about Völkl Snowboards?

The familly, sales metting parties :D – and of course the boards, how could I forget. Well the boards are better every year, responsive but soft enough, and hard to brake – actually I didn't manage to break any of my boards :D

How do you motivate yourself and learn new tricks?

I get motivated while riding with better people than myself. But the most important is a crew :) and my dog :D

You had any dangerous situations on the mountain so far?

Well last season I landed with my stomache on a kink rail – almost 2 weeks at the hospital
