Nikita are stoked to officially announce that Lisa Filzmoser and Vera Janssen, both existing killer streetwear and outerwear team riders, are now charging the mountains with Nikita Snowboards afoot.
The girls are pumped to be deepening the relationship with Nikita and riding the new FW13-14 selection. Innsbruck-based fearless freestyler Lisa is headed to Alaska armed and ready to shoot with the creative True Color Films crew whilst also getting ‘Boobilicious’ with the Lipstick Productions ladies filming for the release of their third all-girls movie later this year. “I am so happy to ride Nikita Snowboards,” Lisa says, “as Nikita and I have such a long relationship. It’s great that they are now doing snowboards too. My choice is the Sideway Sista; it is the optimal board I can use for backcountry riding and also park. It is light and really good quality. Love it! Looking forward to going out and shooting with this snowboard.”
Pro-Mum Vera is back in Canada, wallowing in the epic conditions of Whistler’s backcountry. She’s testing out her super sled alongside the new snowboards and continuing to film the insightful ‘Vera’s Shredventures’ episodes released with Mahfia.tv and sequences for Lipstick’s ‘Boobilicious’. “I’m super stoked on the Nikita Snowboards. After snowboarding passionately for 22 years, I definitely wouldn’t ride anything but a great quality board and Nikita Snowboards have me convinced! The first week I got the board, I took it to some extreme conditions; from straight-lining Whistler/Blackcomb’s legendary Dave Murray Downhill in icy conditions, topping 100km/h in many of its turns, to ripping nearly 1000m vertical lines and chutes in the far-away backcountry of Bralorne, BC, to hitting powder pillows and jumps – the Nikita Expression 154 is my new weapon of choice!”
And from the Nikita camp, Iceland legend and Marketing Director Geiri states “We are uber happy to have awesome and talented human beings Lisa and Vera riding our snowboards. They have been a part of the Nikita family for some time now and having them riding and testing our snowboards is a very natural progression to our relationship.”
