Onboard sat down with Swiss slayer Iouri Podladtchikov to interview him about his inspiration, his progression, and his recent move to Quiksilver amongst other tittle tattle, with some of his heavy stomps from this season. Check it out…

Iouri Podladtchikov has been on a bit of a tear of late, but sadly a couple of niggling injuries prevented him from giving Peetu Piiroinen a real test in the TTR Tour. Make no bones about it – as good an all-rounder as Peetu is, IPod certainly has the skills on the kickers and in pipe to have a say in matters, and furthermore has a fierce competitive streak that could have made the Tour a bit more interesting this year had he stayed fit.

But for all his heavy skills on a snowboard – it’s worth mentioning that he’s still the only other rider we’ve seen throw Shaun White’s Double McTwist 12 in the pipe – we realised that aside from a few boozy encounters at events we know precious little about him and his approach to his riding. With a move from Volcom to Quiksilver freshly under his belt, we sat down with Iouri a while back with the intention of setting that right. Check it out.
