My first “poem” starts about 14 days ago:
It all started with ISPO, where we (me and Pizzi, my company partner) had a stand with our skate, snowboard and clothing company LOVE. This year our stand was REALLY REALLY mega nice I think! We spent HOURS (until 4 am. the day before) painting and putting all stuff in place. Feedback for all new stuff was really good and people seemed to really like our stuff and our whole maybe a bit “hippie” philosophy.
The next day after ISPO I went snowboarding and shooting at my local mountain in lower Austria (Hochkar). It was also the first time I was really riding our own new boards. To make it short….I LOVE THEM!!!!
For the next days, it was pretty much a rhythm of one day riding and shooting and one day staying in bed and feeling sick….
Now I´m in the area around Salzburg since one week and for the last days it was ICE AGE here…and will stay like that!!! MEGA MEGA SNOW!!!
Next weekend (28th of February and 1st of March) there will be our social project kids day in Flachauwinkel, where LOVE teamriders Flo Mausser, Marc Swoboda, and Stefan Gimpl and me will ride and hang out for two days with orphanage kids. Everybody who´s there can join the session.
I´ve attached some shots from ispo go check them!
