„UNjudged“- Video Project

Posted on Posted in Blog, Unjudged

As my whole family is very active and since skiing always has been a big part of their lives we (my brother and me) started skiing pretty early!

We loved it and went skiing every day it was possible and after a few years of just skiing around and learning it I decided that I wanted to race, since I have always been a very competitive person which needs and performs better under pressure.

I did that for a few years and I really enjoyed it, but when my brother started to ski off piste and built his own jumps I kind of felt like this is what I want to do as well! The real turning around for me was when he told me that he tried his first frontflip, then I decided, that I´ll no longer will ski threw gates! Haha

From then, time just flew by as we had huge amounts of fun all around the mountains and we also improved our skills pretty quickly! Almost learned a new trick everyday when we have been on the mountains!

A year later we started competing and as soon as I won my first contest I knew that this is the sport I would like to be successful at!

Pretty much spent all the seasons afterwards until last november with just traveling around and doing nothing than competing! After the Olympics, X-Games and the World Champs last year I have been very over it and almost lost the fun I had in skiing! Since I always did the same over and over again, besides that I have constantly been under pressure because I just had results in my head!

Over the years I spend, just competing I got to know the szene, the people around and everything wasn´t really like I thought it would be! There have been soo many bad things going on, not just with judgments, also other very strange stuff which should normally not be like that, in my mind!

Realizing that and starting to film for my Video-Project in the 2014/15 season, completely changed my thoughts, sights and goals in skiing! I finally found the fun, motivation and just the pleasure again which I had back when I started and this just made me think differently!

It somehow also turned out that „EXPOSED“ was probably the biggest success I had in skiing since people got a different version of LUCA to see and it was just crazy for me to see what you can reach when you put a lot of effort and all the energy you have into something and nobody judges or gives negative energy to you!

„UNJUDGED“ is a project of mine which has been in my head since a while already, but I unfortunately not had the time and the people around to start with it in the last years! The name already tells a lot and the reason why I did choose „UNJUDGED“ is because with this videos,…. and everything else I will put out under this name I want to show you the skiing which I enjoy, the skiing which puts a smile on my face, the skiing I grew up with, the skiing I fell in love with and just all the aspects why I love skiing so much!

I think the freeskiing world has to be more open minded to stay interesting and to still be as cool as I remember it from all the big names back in the days! The hate between different styles, teams and ways to dress etc… has no space in this small sport, it just will ruin itself and will more and more become uninteresting.

I know I can not change anything, but since last year I try to go my own way and to do things differently, as well as I try to ski how I really enjoy it and why I love it!

I will not try to change my skiing just that maybe the judges will give me more points, I will ski for myself and I´m very excited of the things to come and how far we can reach with „UNJUDGED“ !

Have fun skiing and enjoy it, because there´s no time to hate! 😉

Haven´t been that motivated to do well since a while!

Posted on Posted in Blog

Just made it to Milan for the first Big Air Worldcup of the season for me and I don´t know why, but I´m super mega motivated to do well and compete this season!

I think the little break last season where I filmed a lot and produced my first project of „Unjudged“ was very good, since it kind of cleared my mind and told me what exactely I want to achieve and what my goals for the future are!

Can´t wait to see and hit the jump today as well as getting the season started!

Here are some photos from a little trip to croatia with two of my best friends to go surfing in the adriatic sea! It was simply amazing and I can´t wait for the next one!

Unfortunately I had to take the HELI down the mountain yesterday!

Posted on Posted in Blog

Drove over to Innsbruck for the sports/health test with the ski federation on thursday and afterwards we had training on the schedule!

Turned out that we had an epic day skiing up on the hintertux glacier on friday and it felt amazing to be back on skis! Got to hit some jumps and also did some doubles already!

Saturday the weather was supposed to be supergood again, but unluckily it was foggy all day which made us hit the rails for a few hours!

Kind of the same happened yesterday except, that we pushed each other on the rails and tried a lot of tricks and unfortunately I cut my edge on a downrail and fell straight onto my head without control! The bad thing about it was, that it was really icy and it kind of knocked me out!

I hit my left side of the behind head really hard and somehow I couldn´t really feel my left hand good anymore, which scared the shit out of me!

Went straight down to the middle gondola station where they have a few doctors which told us that its better to take the heli to the hospital in Innsbruck to check everything, to be 100% sure everything is in the right place!

Luckily it turned out to be allright except that I have a headache as well as I am super confused!

Here are some photos from the first day and I´ll be back in a few days! My girlfriend Martina will pick me up today and I´ll take a few days off!

World Bread Day // Eat the Ball

Posted on Posted in Blog

Well, since today is the „World Bread day“ I figured it would be cool, to write a little story about Eat The Ball!

Its a brand which produces deep frozen bread 100% out of natural ingredients, a special look and most importantly with some thoughts behind it!

The thought I like the most about this bread is, that there must be a way to not threw away endless amounts of bread on planet earth anymore in the future! They came up with a totally new strategy of making bread!

Eat the Ball you can thaw and freeze a few times and the quality as well as the taste stays same, which means that you do not have to threw away lots of bread in any kind of food place anymore! I know its a long way to go until the peolpe will start to think about things like this more and more, but at least this is a beginning and I feel good about representing this company because of some very cool and inspiering thoughts!

COLMAR Photoshoot -Courmayeur

Posted on Posted in Blog

Last week I´ve been in Courmayeur on a photo shoot with COLMAR, since they decided to pick me for the outdoor clothes shooting as well! They always produce high quality and good looking clothes and so they did with the new Spring/Summer collection as well!

I´ll more or less let the pictures speak for themselves, since last week was a great one! Had lots of fun, been very productive and I think the photos and videos for the new collection turned out amazing!

Thanks COLMAR for being the best brand out there and I´m super happy that you involve me into so many things! 🙂 I appreciate it a lot and its unbelievable how much you guys take care of your athletes! 🙂

You can purchase all the COLMAR clothes here, except the new collection: COLMAR

Douchebags – Best bags ever made?

Posted on Posted in Blog

Since the very first time I used a product from Douchebags I just fell in love with it! The way it looks, the way it works, the way the company presents itself is just something I really like and always when I receive a package from Db its spezial!

I almost use one of the bags everyday so I do kind of have a tight connection to the brand and I think every single product is as good as it gets!

It just makes traveling smoother, easier and a Douchebag will always look clean and has style, since it has a very clean and spezial look!

Do not know anything else to say other than I don´t see me traveling with any other bags in my life anymore! Thanks for the support guys and its so cool that you´r part of every little journey I do and for making my life on the road a lot easier!

Love the new „MIDNIGHT BLUE“ which is available NOW and just check out Douchebags for more infos!

Friendship is forever! Thanks Giacomo :-)

Posted on Posted in Blog

I first came to Monza in Dez. 2012 to visit COLMAR when I was 16 years old! I don´t know the exact date anymore, but that day I got to know Giacomo! Since then I pretty much have been in contact with him every week!(some times even everyday)

Back then I did not know what a sponsorship exactely is, I just loved to ski and I had nothing else in my head than skiing, having fun and to just getting better and better! I have been young, I had a dream and I had goals, all of a sudden I somehow came to COLMAR through Jon Olsson who had a partnership with them aswell a few years ago! As you might know Jon was pretty much the guy who helped me and teached me how to do things and has been in my background for a few years!

I didn´t know what will expect me, how the collaboration will be and I have been nothing but excited, proud and happy to be able to represent such a cool and big company! I loved Italy ever since, as I grew up spending holidays on lake garda with my family every year, so I kind of had a connection with italy!

Somehow this partnership turned into something very special, I started to close COLMAR and the guys behind into my heart and I´m 100% sure I would never be where I am without having this amazing company behind me and helping me with everything!

Giacomo, I was a little boy, I had a dream and luckily I got to meet you and COLMAR in 2012! Thanks for teaching me so many things in life, thanks for always being there for me, doesn´t matter if it was a good result, competing in the Olympics or being injured, you have always been the guy who was there for me, who always cared about everything and who made my life great!

There´s two very special things about you! Since we started working together you always believed in me and I always felt that, you did care about everything I did and you quickly understood the freesking scene and the thing I love about you is that you understood me, you saw that I´m different, you saw that I tried my best but sometimes people decided to don´t like what I´m doing, but you and COLMAR have always been in my back and believed in me and everything you told me did work out! 🙂

Thank you Giacomo and COLMAR for accepting me into the family and making me to the person I am today! I can never thank you enough for all the things you gave me, but you know what, I think thats live and you are one of the few peoples who educated me and who made my life to how it is today!

Thanks for being a buddy and I hope you will have an epic future and you had a great last day working at COLMAR today!

Buddy, I think you know, but if not, you and COLMAR made my life to a really really cool one, you opend doors and you realized so many dreams! Thanks for everything I learned through you and everyday when I put on a piece of COLMAR I think about the factory visits and remember everything! I can´t tell you how much I appreciate all the things you made possible for me and I wish you the best of luck in your new job, luckily its just on the other side of the street so I know where I´ll have my second coffee next time I´ll go to milan!

THANKS! (EVERYBODY INVOLVED) You guys are the best!

MINI = daily company / Lifestyle / Mobility

Posted on Posted in Blog

MINI is something very special for me, since Peter (the person who takes care of me and does everything pretty much from the MINI side) came up to me after the Olympics two years ago and asked me if I´d be interested in driving a MINI and starting a cooperation!

At this stage pretty much everything with my professional skiing career started and through MINI also my mobility was different and it felt like the door to life opened! I for example was able to go to Milan to visit Colmar(my clothing partner) without being afraid that maybe the car could break down at anytime or anything! (since I had a very old car before)

It just made so many things easier and I think without MINI and Peter I would never be where I am today! A MINI is not just a car for me, its my way of LIFE and part of my Lifestyle! 😉

Thank you so much Mini-Austria for having me on board and every day I see this epic whip I think about how lucky I am and how thankful I can be to have partners like you guys in my life!
