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

My brother introduced me to snowboarding,and he was the one who drove me around all the time.thanks for everything man !!!


Who was your local hero?

My local hero was for sure Andrea Vecchi , Alberto Clement and Danny Morandini. big up !


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

My first pic was published in an Italian free mag called Freezer. Freezer rocked the world of Italian snowboarding in a time it was really flowering, it was pretty much the sickest boardsport mag theres has been in history of Italian snowboarding.just complete bullshit from the first till the last page. the pic was a sequence of a mctwist 900 with a really sketchy landing…..but i was hella stoked at the time.


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

My first part was a skateboard part for a shop called napalm beach. my friends and i send the tape into get sponsored. the song was epic :gorilla biscuits-new direction. My first snowboard part was a nitro promo movie from '96 i think. and the music was Mötorhead - ace of spades. sooooooooooo stoked !


How did you get your first sponsor?

I got it trough a local shop called MayDay. it was Agression Snowboards and Blackflys.


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

I would ride as much as i can for sure, i just dont know if i could do it, as much as i would love to. but where there's a will,theres a way…arrrrgh !


What is your favourite moment on the mountain?

I guess its probably when the sun is taking her last rays back,and everyone had a good session and no one got hurt. it's the moment where everybody is really calm and fully on hype at the same time, everybody is so open that ideas and dreams are just floating around, whithout fear. This makes your dreams live on for a couple more years.


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

Getting hurt or worse seing a good friend getting hurt.
In general : Digging somebody or even a friend out of an avalanche or even worse trying to find him whitout having a clue how to use a beeper…


How important is the time on the mountain for you?

Most important thing on this planet,all the water comes from up there.the water is the key!


How important is music for you on a snowboardmovie?

Most important thing. odd numbres-hokus pokus; sub society-this is not the new h-street video; pegboy-troops of tomorrow. i discovered most of my music from skate and snowboardvideos. thats the nice thing, a new way of music and art its developing itself out of the videos.


Favourite videopart, ever:

I got a couple : H-street-Hokus Pokus-matt hensley
New Deal-1281-john montesi ,TB3-Daniel Franck



1281-because it was the time of impossibles,nose blunt slides and late shovits and i love the song
