Interview:

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

I think the whole season of 2008. I had an amazing year with a bunch of wins including Dew Tour overall slopestyle and JOSS.

What is your favourite park feature?

It's hard to compete with a perfect park kicker.

What is your favourite trick?

cork 5

What are your goals for the 2010-2011 season?

Staying injury free, and get back into it. Couple of podiums.

What is your single biggest career goal?

X-Games Gold

In your opinion, is it more important to be stylish or progressive?

I think both, you should progress the sport but still be stylish. Style is big though, you can progress the sport with style as well.

Which role models do you admire outside of the world of sports?

Oprah

What are your three favourite albums?

L.A.X, The Game

What's the last book you read?

Hehe, I'm not much of a reader! I think the last book I read was The Book of Candide which he gave me a signed copy of.

If you weren't skiing or riding, what career would you be pursuing?

Golf!

What is the weirdest thing you've seen in skiing/snowboarding?

The weirdest thing I've seen in skiing has to be Pep Fujas's switch 180 revert 360 at the JOI 2007. Craziest thing ever, not possible!

What is your favourite ski or snowboard film segment?

The segment that's just stuck in my head is Candide's seggy from Ski Movie 3 (I think). Where he goes full speed and clears that huge hip.

What kind of cross training do you do to stay fit in the off-season?

I lift some weights and all that stuff, but mainly I just try to stay active. Doing a bunch of sports, biking and I recently began hiking with weights in my backpack.

What other sports do you play?

Golf, Soccer, Skateboarding, Volleyball... Everything!

In your opinion, which contest format is better; rider-judged or professionally-judged?

I will say that the professionally judges are better at putting a score down and keeping everything under control. But having a rider there is the best, cause he knows which tricks are harder and more difficult to do properly, so in my head riders are better!

Do you have a morning routine or ritual before riding?

My morning routine is basically try to stay in bed as long as possible. I do have a ritual before a contest though; take a really long shower and go over my run over and over again.

What are your top 3 skiing or riding destinations?

Hafjell, Norway. Breckinridge/Keystone, CO and Whistler, Canada!

What three items can you not live without?

My Mac, My Iphone and my Ipad (if I had one)

When is the last time you took a risk?

I take a risk all the time, like today I decided to go for the green on the second shot of a par 5, water on left side on the green and I usually hit a pretty big draw. That was a huge risk and failing would result in disaster! Landed 5 feet from the green though so it worked out. That's the biggest risk of the day ;)

What is the most important after skiing or snowboarding?

Hmmm, getting something to eat?

Do you have any other special talent our readers should know about?

I cook a mean omelet!

What vehicle do you drive?

Don't have a car, don't need one!

Famous last words?

I watched Lion King the other day so: Hakuna Matata .... what a wounderful phrase!
