The culture, the city, the food, the designers, the ocean- thats Barcelona! I spend four amazing days in Barcelona! It was an incredible cool trip with some sightseeing, shopping, swimming in the ocean and watching the Street League Skateboard event. I had an incredible fun time in this city!

If you plan to visit the city and you need some recommendations- please go ahead! And yes I will go back there as soon as I can!! If you haven’t visited this city- go!

Swiss Snowboard Girls Camp

This week was the 5th edition of the Girls Camp in Corvatsch. Ursina Haller, the organizer from the event, could bring 33 girls from the age of 7 to 22 together for a snowboard weekend. i was lucky and I got the most amazing crew- the youngest ones! We were shredding together and were laughing a lot! It was nice to bring them to bad, to wake them up in the morning and to show them some cool tricks on the slopes and in the park. The kids were learning fast and we enjoyed every single minute on the snow.

I am really thankful for this amazing experience: the wonderful smiles, happy faces and amazing inputs!

Freestyle.ch 2015 is canceled

I am really sad about the news I heard about the freestyle.ch today! My heart is bleeding! They couldn’t find enough sponsors to run the event this year. Since I am little I love this event. Back in my childhood days I was visiting the event as a guest to watch all my heroes go crazy over the jump and at the last few years I could be a part of the show- and I was mad stoked hitting the jump at the Landiwiese in Zurich!!

It was not just one single competition it was a festival included skateboarding, freeski, snowboarding, bmx and fmx! Of course the parties were wild and crazy, but it was a big get together event before the winter started! I’ll miss the event so much this September!

I really hope the organization finds another good sponsor to run the event again next year- PLEASE!!

The Ladies Session in Laax

8 riders from eastern Europe to California! Laax and I organized a little film and photo session in Laax during the last week! It is not easy to pick only eight riders- because there are many talented riders out there. In the end Kelly Clark, Spencer O’Brien, Queralt Castalet, Kjersti Buaas, Chanelle Sladics, Klaudia Medlowa, Elena Könz, Joelle JJ Juchli and Ursina Haller made it to my home resort! The main point about our session was to bring back the cool friendship between the pipe and slopestyle riders- it was all about fun and shredding together! The weather wasn’t really on our side- and we had a lot of down days- but our down day weren’t bad and we made the best out of it! As you can see on the pics we went to go to the Spa at the Park Hotel in Flims- we were working on our muscle tan a bit and enjoyed the wonderful spa.

In those two days, when the weather was good we were absolutely killing it in front of the camera lenses! In the beginning of the week Klaudia, Kjersti and Elena were shredding the kickers in the P60 park. In the middle of the week we had bad weather and we mostly enjoyed hanging together and have some ladies talk!

On Wednesday 16 lokal kids joined us for a day. The new generation of snowboarding met the oldies! The kids were really stoked to get in touch with their heroes and the snowboard pros liked to have so many motivated and talented kids around them. In the evening every one was looking back to an amazing day!

On Saturday morning we went up at 5.30 to celebrate the sun rise! The pipe was in a good shape and our pipe riders, Kelly Clark, Queralt Castalet and Ursina Haller were showing some high airs! Even Elena Könz and I tried to get back into the pipe! It came out pretty good- Elena showed us some amazing backside airs and I enjoyed to hit my frontside wall! Kelly and Queralt couldn’t stop riding and ended up jumping over each other (planed not by accident)!!
