Good days in Stubai

After I had the opportunity to spend some awesome weeks snowboarding in Stubai I feel ready and happy to start the winter season soon! Thanks to the Prime Park Session, Stubai Zoo, the Swiss Snowboard Team and to Pally Learmond for the photos!

After two awesome weeks snowboarding on the swiss glacier above Saas-Fee we traveled all the way to New Zealand by plane. To the other side of the world, down under.

We couldn’t have been more lucky with the weather. I took part at the slopestyle worldcup in Cardrona. I qualified 3rd and was 4th in the finals. It was a fun first competition!

Straight after the finals in Cardrona I had to catch the plane to Australia. There we went to take part at an other competition. The Mile High in Perisher. The first training day was epic. Unfortunately the weather changed and it started to rain for the next days.

I’m happy that the competition still took place and that I could claim the 2nd place!

Due to the bad forecast in the mountains we decided to do a little trip through Australia and to visit Sydney. We had some rally fun days there surfing and skateboarding.

4th place at the World Cup in Istanbul 2014

For the first ever FIS big air world cup we went with the swiss snowboard freestyle team to Istanbul. I’m verry happy to end up 4th place in this competition.

Because of a crash in the training my foot was hurting. I’m glad for all the support of trainers an physio that made it possible for me to take part at the contest and qualifie for the finals. It was a nice trip and a great experience.

First Spring Days

After snow was gone here in Switzerland we decided to do a trip to Barcelona and visit a friend there. It was awesome to explore the city by bike, do some skateboarding and to swim in the sea.
