For two hours on Wednesday, you asked and Bjorn Leines answered unfiltered and as fast as he could type. With a wide variety of topics, from his shred background to his personal life, you guys covered it all. Some of Bjorn’s stand out questions were:
1.Q: How was it being friends and riding with Jeff Anderson? He left us way to soon.
A: Jeff will always be in my heart. He was a true original. Grew up with him and Billy in snowboarding. RIP
2.Q: Who are your favourites on the Rome team to film and travel with?
A: LNP, he’s his own man as well as Marius, he can shred it all and is a Viking.
3.Q: How do you feel about giving back community? What sort of ways do you use your power to help out?
A: I donate to a local church that has outreach programmes for the needy as well as try to be a good role model for the kids that look up to shredders.
4.Q: If you could only ride one snowboard for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
A: Mod, it’s the weapon. Insane flex and tons of pop.
5.Q: What is your favorite place to ride in Canada?
A: My favourite is Interior BC, sledding in Kooney Mtn range or sledding in Whistler. For resorts Kicking Horse is sick.
6.Q: Oh were you in the most extreme primate?
A: Funny stuff, a monkey can snowboard so no excuse on going pro.
“The Twitter interview was a fun format because you had to answer everything in a real time scenario. You end up typing the first thing that comes to mind instead of a planned out answer,” said Bjorn.
Rome has selected the winner at random and the lucky person is Liam Robinson or “CHHHHH” and he’ll be getting a new pair of 2010 Folsom Boots with SkateCuff technology.
