    Do you like the direction that the sport of snowboarding has gone in since you could remember?

    No not really, I mean the progression of the riding is sick and Im stoked on that! but I just don't like how the popularity of videos are fating out and contests are getting more and more important.. Snowboarding should be about going out in the snow and make something creative and fun happen. I started snowboarding because of the freedom and the differences it had from other sports like soccer.. But now days it feels like snowboarding has become of a more serious sport. But of course there are many riders and companies that still hold on to the core feeling witch is super important for the sport!

    My pro model at Bataleon of course. Disaster Gulli Edition! gulli gudmundsson
