There’s a reason to be stoked on the HEAD Team! Hurray, hurray: we’d like to send out a warm welcome to our new Team rider Christophe Schmidt!

Christophe has made a name for himself over the last few years with contest results like the Airtime Record at the Red Bull GAP Session 2006, video parts with Blank Paper Productions (among others), and tons of cover shots. Actually, as one of the best riders not only in Germany but worldwide, he shouldn’t really need an introduction.

The 25-year-old Schliersee (Germany) local will be out on HEAD boards, boots, and bindings effective immediately. We quote: “I’m totally excited to join the HEAD Team. It’s a small but extremely strong group of riders and as far as the equipment goes, the company has come a long way over the last few years. Since HEAD is seated in Munich, I can also work with them on product development, contributing the experience I’ve gathered the last 14 years on a snowboard. My goal is to continue to improve the HEAD collection even further in the future."

We can’t but agree to that and are looking forward to a successful partnership. Welcome to the Team, Christophe!
