Mario and I decided to visit the Park in Stubai. We had such a great day there. The weather was good and conditions are ok, the landings were a bit icy but it was still ok. Here a few impressions from our session in the park. Photos by David Weinseisen.

Same Awesomeness - Different Year. It's the beginning of October. It's the beginning of the new season. It's time for the infamous Hintertux Opening at the Hintertux Glacier in Austria. Like in the previous years, the Hintertux Opening was also in 2013 an incredible happening with tons of great riders coming together from all different parts of the world.
Thursday was just off the hook with amazing bluebird all day long. I was getting used to the snow again and had some easy jib sessions along the boxes and rails.
Friday and Saturday then was foggy and rainy, but I and my buds from the German Snowboard Team couldn't just stop shredding and so we just ripped it hard till the end of daylight - it was so much fun. In the evening then we all gathered to watch the latest Pirates Movie Productions flick "Distorted Reality" - those segments in there really get you motivated - superstoked!
On Sunday then finally the sun had a comeback and so we had awesome fun at the great Pleasure Snowboard Mag Kids Shooting with rider legend Wolle Nyvelt.
All in all it was a great first shred weekend - and currently I'm already on the way to the next stop: the Kaunertal Glacier opening!
More news to come soon - ride on!

This is a very special honor for us, as it is a clear confirmation that what we love to do, the things were we put all our sweat and blood into, is not left unnoticed by the international snowboard scene.
When we started crafting our first snowboards back in 1989, we had only one goal: bringing the feeling of freedom and individualism that we loved so much in skateboarding to the snow. And this is still our goal today.
In times where brand restructurings, portfolio optimizations and dividend payments dominate the snowboard biz, we have always remained true to our roots. We are still same owner operated, independently financed company, run by the same shredheads who just never gave up on their dream, even when times where tough. We don't have to impress any corporate suits. The only ones we have to impress are our fans.
And for the love of our fans who have always been loyal to us, we will continue making products that we can stand behind. Products that are functional and built to last. Products that come from heart.
We would like to thank you, our fans, for all the love and support over the years. Without you, we wouldn't be here today.
Together we will keep on ... SKATE THE SNOW!
Also in 2013/14.

Hey guys, it's Robin from Switzerland. Just wanted to give you a quick heads-up on what's going on during my summer. For me the snowboard season has already started again! Yes, I know it's still summer and all my friends from home think I'm a complete lunatic for being back on snow already, but what can I say: I just can't live without the white gold!
In the beginning of August I went to the wonderful glacier resort of Les 2 Alpes in France, where I started practicing again with my team from the Bernese snowboard association. The program is quite diverse and snowboarding on the glacier is just a small part. In the beginning of the season the most important thing is to get your body back in shape after the break and to prepare yourself for the exhausting contest weeks during the winter months.
So for us that means that we do a lot of physical training, going running everyday, going downhill biking or skating. Besides taking care of my body I also try to keep my boards in shape, as you can see below ;)
Ok, I will go back to shred some summer slush now. Let's stay in touch!
