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

Hmm, it was just everybody  at my local resort. We had this sick crew called g-had. It was a super small resort and everybody was super tight there. Good times! Want to thanks all the guys from that crew back in the days..

Who was your local hero?

Andreas wiig. He was riding at my local resort and has always been killing it.

Is Norway the perfect place to grow up as a snowboarder?

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

I think it was back flip in a Norwegian snowboard mag way back in the days. I  think I landed it thought. hehe

Where was your first video appearence with what music ?

It was in one Petter Fosshaugs first movies( factor films) Cant remember the song, probably some briney sprears ore something lame music.hehe

How did you get your first sponsor?

I was just riding allot, got better and better , then I started to do pretty good in contest and stuff. So Oakley hooked me up. Yeah!

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

Hell yeah! Snowboard its so fun, cant stop doing that.

What is your favourite moment on the mountain?

When I can just shred park with my homeboys back home in my local resort. That’s always a blast!

When your sleed its breaking down and you don’t get any shots suckes big time.haha.

How important is the time on the mountain?

Its really important for me, I love spending time in the mountains. Its my life right now..

How important is music for you in a snowboardmovie?

Its really important to have good music in a snowboard movie. That makes 50%  of the movie. And I think allot of people agree with that..
