If you were not a snowboarder, what would you be?
Downhill or MTB rider. I love cycling.
But you are, so please tell when and why did you start snowboarding?
I started snowboarding when I was 16 and did it probably because all my friends were snowboarding and skiing at that time. And of course because of the beautiful snowboarder girls.
When did you know a pro snowboarder is what you wanted to be?
When I went to my first international competition.
Greatest accomplishment as a snowboarder?
Second place in the Asian Cup some years ago and numerous gold medals from national Champs.
Best snowboarding memory?
Best memories are from Japan. Half a day of hiking up the mountain and freeriding down with the reward of a hot noodle ramen-susuru. Japan is the best spot for snowboarding, that’s for sure (besides Iran of course 😉 ).
One word to describe snowboarding?
If we asked your best friends to describe you with 3 words, what would those words be?
Always crazy, late and busy 😀
What is the longest time you haven’t been on your snowboard?
7 months, when I broke my hand during half-pipe training.
What are you doing when you are not on a snowboard?
Working in the chemistry lab.
How many travel days do you get in a year?
Enough to miss my sweet home.
How was your 2014?
Great success because I managed to fulfill one of my dreams – snowboarding in Australia.
What’s going down in 2015?
Lot of races in Europe and a month in the USA.
What “keeps you going”, on top of Battery energy drinks of course?
Listening to good music while I am drinking Battery 😀
Which is your favorite Battery Energy Drink?
