POW gear of choice?
Stealth & Stealth Mitts. They are just perfect for any condition – not to buffy and not to thin either. Leather gloves last even longer than the regular Pow gloves. I wore an old pair for ’bout 200 days, the sun bliged the color out a bit but beside of that it’s still the same… crazy. Both Stealth models have a classic design, tailored fit and unbeatable functionality.
Do you have any pre-riding or post-riding rituals?
Depends on the situation… When I hike in backcountry there is no need for warming up. When it’s super cold and I gonna ride some park, I prefer to warm up, but it’s not really a ritual. Post riding I just like to take a hot bath hehe…
If you were stuck on a snow covered mountain island who are the five people you would want to ride with, dead or alive?
Hmmm… there is a lot of amazing riders out there and it would be an amazing experience to ride with them, but I would still prefer to ride with my shred buddies for back home. All of them amazing snowboarders and we hardly ride together once the season is on. Werner Stock, Peter König, Tom Klocker, Mario Wanger & Chris Kröll Like Nate Dogg said: “It ain’t no fun, if the homies can’t have none…”
Hobbies off the board/sticks?
Not too much. When I am home I try to spend some time with my friends and my girl. I usally take a month off in Summer. I go for a swimm and try to go to gym on a regular basis, although I’m not a big fan of gyms… Besides of that every now and then I like to challange my friends on fifa (xbox).
What is the best advice you have been given?
There is this saying in my mother tongue “Who likes his work has a lot of nice days.” Don’t chose a job for money or prestige, chose something that you like to do. Cause when you like to do something, it’s easy to dedicade and work hard. Success will come naturally, money and prestige will follow. I heard it a lot when I was younger…
Why are you riding for POW Gloves?
Gloves belong to the most essential snowboard equipment. I know how it feels to be up on montain with shitty gloves – no fun. Pow are simply the best gloves I have ever tried. Word!
Famous last words:
Ahhhh geh! I always say it when something goes wrong. I say it quite a lot hehe
