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

Yea dude my homie oli, still ride with him and always thanking him for being my friend.

Who was your local hero?

Merlin Balfour and Jaime Phillp.

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

HahA yea i was in document snowboard mag i was about 14 or 15 and it was a back nose slide revert 270 sequence on this orange box and yes landed but the funny thing was i remember i had these massive big black gloves that stuck out like a sore thumb on the shot with the fish eye... looked pretty weird..

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

I think my first part was with lockdown projects.. and if i remember correctly the tune was something like 'hey mickey'... waaa-waaaaa

How did you get your first sponsor?

I went to a little contest called the Brits and hooked up with my man Crusher Todd who totally sorted me out, BIG UP YO!! He hooked me up on Silence snowboards, so dope!

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

I think maybe I'd be able to concentrate on my personal life a bit more and dude i'll still be shreddin'.

What is your favourite moment on the mountain?

Any time with friends. And there is always that special moment after a sick pow shredd.

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

Window shopping..

How important is the time on the mountain for you?

Very much so!

How important is music for you on a snowboardmovie?

I think its good for a rider to be able to express him or her self through a sweet tune that means something to oneself.

Favourite videopart, ever:

DeMarchi in Vivid

why?

there is no why, just watch it.

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

Beeing in the nature: 30
Having a good time with your friends:  60
Doing your job: 10

How did you get in contact with the PiRATE project?

The first time was sir monkey boy horton and the drewster since then its just history.

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

Well you gotta be able to express your snowboarding and to get it out there and i think filming is the best way to express what kind of rider you are.
