       Max Buri is a featured rider in the new movie We Are The Super Kids (WATSK) and we figured he might want to answer a few questions about this upcoming season.
    Considering what you have accomplished so far, what are your goals for the future?
    Just keep on cruising and having fun.. Going on more shooting trips and filming, and here and there a couple of good contest results wouldn't hurt!
     
    Do you like the direction that the sport of snowboarding has gone in since you could remember?
    Ehm, its kinda hard to say.. Because the level in snowboarding is getting so high, a lot of people are taking it too seriously sometimes! And for me snowboarding shouldn't be serious at all, of course you want to get better and do new crazy tricks, but it shouldn't get to a point where your not having fun anymore and you go on to the mountain to go "training".
     
    What board are you going to be riding in the12/13 season?
    Salomon Sabotage
     
    Whats the hardest thing about your job?
    Jetlag, don't like that so much..
     
    Any nutrition secrets?
    Milk! makes your bones strong haha
     
    What are you doing when your not snowboarding?
    Skateboarding, surfing, parties, good music, hanging with friends and family and I still have to work in a hotel a bit for my education diploma
     
    At what age did you start snowboarding? Were you on Ski's first?
    I was a skater kid and wasn't really into winter sports until 13.. That was the age all changed
    Family...What does it mean to you?
    Its my roots, kinda makes me the person who i am today!
     
    Do you have any trips already planned for the12/13 season that you're stoked about?
    Not really except a few contests, but just getting generally hyped for the new season again! I wanna go powdering in japan real bad! Lets see what happens
     
    What is something that a lot of people don't know about you?
    Just finished school this summer

     
    What were you doing for work before you went pro?
    I didn't have too many normal jobs yet, but worked a few hours before in my mom&dads souvenir shop or ice cream stand
     
    How many days do you get to ride a year?
    A lot
     
    Favorite mountain/run?
    I think my favorite mountain to shred is my hometown mountain in grindelwald.. There's no place like home
     
    Favorite trick?
