At the moment, I really enjoy to have creative friends taking off in different directions. They are writing, experimenting with electronic music… and they shape snowboards!! KORUA Shapes
In snowboarding, I think I missed the point where I would have been fearless enough to become really good. It was always fascinating for me to jump kickers and experiment in the half pipe… but to be honest, it just never was quite good enough! Carving, going fast and cutting lines into fresh pow on the other hand was always my thing!
Eventually I got bored by the standardized, soft-ish, rocker/cambers that were available and I cut down on snow time simply because I was bored.
…just until Nicholas Wolken put an Apollo56 under my feet.
The huge nose and tiny tale make it a playful, squirrely companion. Fast turns and tight carving on slopes are super fun and if you take Apollo56 for a swim in some powpow, you’ll be the first one to run up the hill again to get a another line!
A huge THANK YOU! to KORUA Shapes for hooking me up with my new favorite toy!
