Who brought you into snowboarding? Have you given him any thanks for his influence?

- I think it was mostly my self that brought me into snowboarding. I just thought skateboarding and snowboarding was totally rad!

Who was your local hero?

- Hampus Mosesson for sure, I wanted to be just like him. But I was mellow, he is crazy!

Where and when was your first snowboardpic published? What trick was it? did you land it?

- It was an add for Burton in our Swedish mag Transition. Fs 900 in a park jump at some resort in Norway. Handdrag but totally good enough ;)

Where was your first video appearence with what music(local snowboardmovie...)?

- Hampus did a move together with Stefan Karlsson when they where still studding. I had a few shots. I was 130cm tall and super stoked!

How did you get your first sponsor?

- After I got 3rd at the Swedish championship in halfpipe year 2000. Burton hooked me up.

Would you still ride as much as you can, if no one would support you (no sponsors, no filmers and photographers) ?

- I would probably ride even more.

What is your favourite moment on the mountain?

- When you make the call that the light sucks and you can´t film. And we all spend the day riding that pow just for fun!

What is the worst time during the time on the mountain?

- When you´r right in the session, feeling that trick big time. Motivation on top and the clouds are rolling in.

How important is the time on the mountain for you?

- very!

How important is music for you on a snowboardmovie?

- Riding is most important and music is right after.

Favourite videopart, ever:

-JP Solberg, Robotfood

Why?

- Best style and he was the coolest guy I had ever seen.

How did you get in contact with the PiRATE project?

- I think that Basti basically hooked me up. Since he lived in Sweden for several years we had common friends.

How important is it for you to be a part of it?

- Very important! I love to be part of the Pirates and they are for sure the snowboard movie company I wanne work with the most.
