Just after my last exams I had the opportunity to get off for some nice snowboarding with good friends. We chose the area around Samnaun/Ischgl, which has over 220km of well prepared slopes. The funny thing was, that I stood just once before – in an indoor facility haha – on a snowboard. Anyways I managed to learn this awesome sport quite fast and had a lot of fun with racing down the slopes and shredding in the fun park.

 

A highlight was the big kicker with a air pillow for safe landings behind. It was so much fun to practice all kind of flips and tricks without caring about the landing. Would love such a thing for kite boarding, this would prevent a lot of pain!

 

The weather was pretty nice all the time and we often had around 10 degrees on the mountains, which made riding quite mallow. To sum it up I can just say that i felt in love with this sport and I will for sure come back on  the board as soon as possible! It is just so nice to carve down the mountain or enjoy the rush of adrenalin in the funpark. But now as I am back in northern Germany the forecast for the next days looks quite interesting – a little bit cold and snowy but a LOT of wind. So stay tuned about the upcoming post about my first session on the water this year. Lets get it started!
