What kind of rider are you?
Jibbing makes me happy, street riding and a lot of snow in the city

What do you like most about Völkl Snowboards?
I ride every year the SQUAD JR 140
I like the easy rocker shape, it´s perfect for nose and tail presses.

You had any dangerous situations on the mountain so far?
Yes unfortunately I have already pretty much injury and heavy crashes one slam three years ago i jumped a big lip in the backcountry and in the landing was a big stone. NOT COOL
my knee and my ankle was so hard destroyed that I could not do anything for a half year.
And two years ago i broke my lumbar at the nike 6.o Rail Jam thats was one off my worst day in my life .
And this year i was on a trip with the völkl team at Helsinki and we shot some Handrail there and on the third day i broke my wrist and i had to fly back to innsbruck
but it was only the hand :-)
Highlights of last season?
The Season was so nice we had so much snow in Tyrol that we can make
so much stuff in the city´s. Me and my friends was every day shooting and filming at innsbruck.
And I had a super good Trip with the völkl guys to finland but i broke my wrist at the third day and i need to fly back to innsbruck.
after my injury i booked a flight to bear mountain with my homies from SANE!
that was one of the best trip ever i never ride so much Park laps in my life
in such a good park hopefully i can go back next year for some weeks.

The best Snowboard trip ever was...
3 year ago.
I was in Montreal and Quebec and it was the best road trip ever – so many jibs!
