Who was your local hero?

Sani and Tom “noodle” Recheis


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

I think it was in the pleasure mag. A fs 540 melon. It was a sequence so sure I landed it.


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

It was in the very first pirate movie Decent Frames but I can´t remember the music.


How did you get your first sponsor?

Gilby from Duotone hocked me up with some stuff. Thanks dude!


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

For sure as much as the wallet would let me!


What is your favourite moment on the mountain?

Riding some powder with my friends.


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

Waiting in the line.


How important is the time on the mountain for you?

It is really important as long I don´t hurt my self it´s the best thing ever.


How important is music for you on a snowboardmovie?

So so, the mix of the riding and the music is important.


Favourite videopart, ever:

Too many good ones to say which is the best.


Give me your percentage of importance of the following factors to go snowboarding:

Beeing in the nature: 35
Having a good time with your friends: 50
Doing your job: 15


How did you get in contact with the PiRATE project?

I met Basti, Flo, Ludschi, Lars on the hut of Gigi´s oncle. Tanja Baumgartner brought me there and it was the best thing that could happen.


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

It super important for me its much more than snowboard business. It´s a really good friendship.



First of all thanks to my parents with out them not possible!!
Big up basti, flo, Ludschi and all the other pirates! Thanks to noodle, hasi, my friends around ibK, my other family and my sponsors!
