Artec Snowboards is pleased to announce the addition of Swedish super ripper Hans Ahlund to our Pro Team. Hans joins recent additions Lisa Filzmoser (Austria) and Kalle
Ohlson (Sweden) as part of Artec’s development from a progressive freestyle project to a full blown global force. As one of the “Pirates” Hans has an exception part in this seasons “Hooked” by Pirate movie productions to add to his impressive appearances in previous Pirate releases and too many magazine to mention. Hans brings exceptional freestyle skills, super sweet steez, and a strong Euro following to the Artec program.
“Hans is on point right now and fits perfectly into what we are doing with Artec. This team is getting deep and I love the diversity of our program. We are starting to have all these rippers from all over, a collection of misfits and rejects that are simply too f-ing good to ignore. And what they all have in common is that they love to snowboard, and they believe in what we are doing with Artec. I love this crew. Welcome to the team Hans.” Blaise Rosenthal, Artec Creative Director
“I’m really hyped to be a part of the Artec program! I’ve been riding the boards while I’ve been filming for the last couple of weeks in Sweden for the new Pirate flick and the boards feel great!” Hans Ahlund
”This kid isn’t just a great rider, he’s also a great guy. Hans is a perfect fit for our team. He not only has exceptional skills on a snowboard but he also has a super positive personality and lots of drive to get the job done.” Dragan Gojkovic, Artec Marketing Manager
