You know that situation when you are trying to stomp a new trick for hours, days or even weeks, but it simply doesn’t work? Sometimes, all you need is the help of a pro to solve your mental blocking and to stick that trick. That feeling was just too familiar for the participants of the VIP pro coaching at the MINI Snowpark Feldberg. The snowboarders, who qualified for the exclusive coaching with NITRO shooting star Dominik Wagner, were Johannes Wolfram, Martin Schwenke, Sandro Fischer, Daniel Siegl and Felix Berres.
The coach was quite surprised when they made their first runs through the park with the guys. The riding level was really high and hence snowboarder Dominik Wagner skipped the basics and immediately put all their focus on the fine-tuning of the participants’ existing trick repertoire. Germany’s longest jib line proofed to be the perfect spot to try out the newly learned tricks.
Even after the lunch break, the snowboarders didn’t show any signs of exhaustion. The group harmonized really well and so time went by way too quickly. Until the very end, riders and coach ripped as hard as they can.
Snowboard coach Dominik Wagner can only support this note: “I just returned from a shooting in Canada and landed in Austria only two days ago. Then I jumped into my car and drove nine hours to the Feldberg – and it was absolutely worth it! The day with the guys was so much fun. Everybody made some steps forward over the day and you could really see that progression. And now the guys have one or two new tricks to show their friends.” Felix Berres, who came all the way from Frankfurt to participate in the session, was also super-impressed. “I had such a sick day! The coaching was truly worth it and just so much fun. I never thought that I could learn so much in one day. Thanks, Dominik!”
