Last winter was my second season as a professional Snowboarder. Still based in Verbier, switzerland. A perfect place for training cause of the accessibility of the terrain, but also the spot to progress & discovers new lines with the infinite Backcountry the Val de Bagnes have to offer.
Poederbaas is my main sponsor. The idea of our partnership was to find a way to help each other and grow together, which, in my sense, gave a more human aspect to our relationship, and created between the Poederboys & me, a mutual respect and friendship . They are more that a budget and product provider to me, they gave me the opportunity to be part of a team and a family. When Maarten Van Geest told me about the Poederbaas Freeride and asked me to be a judge, I was stoke about this new experience which could help me improve my riding in freeride competitions, but I was also sure it will be a great event, cause of the symbolic image of the brand : Enjoyable Lifestyle.
