Douchebags – Best bags ever made?

Posted on

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 :-)

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

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!

Saas Fee – Summerskiing

Posted on

Skiing in August? Well I thought so same, and as I broke my clavicle the last time I have been in Saas Fee I didn´t have a good feeling about it!

Ass soon as the first day skiing was over I thought, well this was one of the funnest days in the park in a while and my motivation raised a lot!

Unfortunately the first week hasen´t been the best weather wise as it always was a little windy and cold so the snow was very hard or better said pretty ice and stayed like this the whole day unfortunately!

Anyway I had a goal for this trip and last week it was as good as it gets, warm weather, sunny and the park was perfect everyday! My plan was to finally learn a switch rightist double cork 1080 which was the only rotation way I wasn´t able to do right and struggled with for a few years! After a few jumps and hours on the small kickers I got a good feeling about it and thought its time to step it up and hit the big jumps switch right side! At first I was really scared and I looked like a beginner, haha! I somehow tried it that often since I really hated not knowing how to do it right and I really wanted to learn it finally! After a day and a half I thought well, I don´t care and I just went for the sw right dub 10 and as I landed it perfectly the first time I was very stoked!

After that I haven´t been too scared anymore and stepped back to the sw right cork 5 to learn the technique well, which helped me a lot and finally I´m proud to say that I pretty much have it on lock, even though its not yet looking how I want to have it, but I´ll get there!

Another cool thing about it was that I learned a trick I´d have never seen me doing, since it was so strange and I couldn´t even think about it since the rotation is so weird!

One day in the last few runs I told Luggi(our coach) I´ll do a Kangoroo Flip and asked him to film it, went way to far and had so much time in the air that I just had to overrotate to not crash out of control and threw this I got the feeling, „well if I land this it would be epic and I knew it was possible“!

The day after I somehow really landed a double flatspin 1260 and a double flatspin 1080 which I´m super happy about and I want to thank the Austrian Ski Federation for this trip, since we had the best time skiing!

Here´s the link to the Video of the new tricks: Video // SAAS FEE

When HOME becomes absolute PARADISE!

Well, when I left home two weeks ago it already looked epic and you could see how beautiful our rebuilding will turn out, but this morning I was blown away as I saw everything!

This is as good as is gets, so stoked and thankful to live in such a wonderful place! 🙂

Thanks Karli for taking things as they have been and just showing that your a BOSS craftsman! Can´t believe that you pretty much planned and built this thing on your own with us Idiots helping you! hahah! Especially my brother who worked all day!

Thought this is more interesting than my Saas Fee skiing improvements, but they´ll be online tomorrow! 😉

Best day so far!

Posted on

Today has been the best day skiing since we are here! Went up with the gondola early in the morning and as it was full on blue skys and warm we kind of knew, that today is gonna be one epic day!

The last days have been a bit challenging for me, since I´m a really ambitious person and had a trick in mind which I was struggling for a few years already and my plan was to finally learn it here!

Today however I felt super good and confident, the snow and weather has been perfect and I finally did land and kind of got the trick which I had a hard time with on lock! I´m super happy about that and another cool thing about today was that I learned one more cool and kind of crazy trick I honestly would have never seen me doing!

Totally did not have this one on mind, but threw a mistake I kind of did the trick and afterwards I tried it and as it felt great and I almost landed it, I think this is the next think I´ll work on in the next days, weeks!

The weather is looking just epic the next two days so we will have an awesome time skiing!

Day Off – Icy day skiing!

Posted on

Yesterday we decided to do a day off from skiing, since the weather looked terrible, and it turned out it was! Our plan was to go for a hike and check out the area!

Went up with the gondola and after about 20min´s of walking it already started to rain! Anyway it was good to be out getting fresh air!

The nature around here is beautiful and a glacier is such a wild thing!

Today looked not so bad but as soon as we arrived at the top we saw that it was windy, cold and super ice! Stayed like this the whole day unfortunately so I skied for a few runs and enjoyed a coffee in the panorama restaurant afterwards, but the next week is looking promising so lets hope we will score some epic days! 🙂

All new Black Crows „Captis“

Posted on

Today it unfortunately has been windy up on the glacier and due to this we couldn´t hit the jumps as it stayed super ice, but we did found some super fun trannys to hit and the corner was epic as well!

Had the best time hitting the super soft quarters beside the jumps and I also learned a new trick! 😉

A very cool part about skiing for me right now is the new park ski from BlackCrows which is called „Captis“! I mean the „Venor“ which I skied last season was a great ski and I loved it as well, but I wouldn´t trade this one for any other skies there is, for the park! It is just a spezial one, and I think the reason for it is the way how it is shaped! It has a little rocker in the front as well as it is a little wider and gets stiffer and stiffer until the end, which is very cool because it forgives you a lot and just makes skiing so smooth and when its super slushy it just feels like surfing kind of! haha It is so cool to hit very slushy jumps and features with this ski, as everything feels so easy and smooth!

Another cool part of the ski is that you can also have lots of fun on normal slopes with it since you can perfectly do carving turns on it!

I´d recommend this ski to everyone which wants to have as much fun as possible in the park, piste as well as off piste! Stoked to have this epic whip under my feet!

This is one to charge hard with! 😉

From the beach to the snow!

Last tuesday I left Jericoacoara, Brasil after three epic weeks of holidays and windsurfing! Exactly a week later today I have been skiing in Saas Fee! It somehow felt a little wierd in the morning, but as soon as I started to hit the jumps I found the rhythm and had a good time!

Will stay here for the next 10 days with the Austrian Ski Federation! I´m sure its gonna be good times, I just hope that the weather plays with us so that we can ski a lot! 🙂

Brazilian Holidays

Posted on

Finally its time to say hello to my new homepage, where I will frequently upload new photos as well as tell you what I´m up to, what I have experienced, what will come etc…
Since my old website has been hacked and I wasn´t really happy with it anyway I figured the better solution would be to stay offline for a little more and come up with something completely new! 😉

As a good friend of mine, Max Brinnich works a lot with websites and always knows the new and good options he put this piece together and I have to say I´m pretty damn stoked about this one and from now on I will definitely care more about this new website!  😉
Right now we are in Jericoacoara which is near Fortaleza, Brazil on holidays! It is one of the best places you can travel to if you love windsurfing in strong wind and waves!
