Hi Michi, we are watching you online all the tine and it’s look like a lot has happen in your career since our last interview? Who is your sponsor now?
Hola SFL Family
My new Sponsor is FANATIC Snowboards, Stoked to ride for that super nice Company After 15 year riding for Völkl Snowboard they send me bad NEWS…. they STOP SNOWBOARD BUSINESS! A new era has begun Jerry the Boss took me into the FANATIC Family. Stoked about New Boards …Best Boards on Earth Check out the Fanatic Website fanatic-snowboards.com
Can you talk us thru history of Making Fanatic Snowboards?
Unfortunately not really much, but I know that the FANATIC Snowboard Company is already 28 years in Snowboard Business.
You also managed to go to Bear Mountain. What was your impression of California?
Its always a pleasure in Cali – Bear Mountain is a paradise for Shredding, the Park is insane!!!
3 times I’ve been already over there and I’ve met a lot of good Homies there.
Next Year again…
This year you have suffered a serious injury, what is your health situation at this moment?
Yes it sucks so much, the Season started super good. I filmed with Different Direction CREW for their NEW Movie #ODYSSEY

At the beginning of february I hit a street Spot ( Roof to Drop Rail ) and I landed on the Speed Check a little bit too far and hurt my ACL ( Season was over)Operation went well, now I have Physio every second day.
I will come Back Stronger than Ever 🙂
Together with the Crew Sane you have recorded a excellent edit. how long did it take you to record this material?
I am stoked to have a motivated crew around me. We’re shooting,(CUT) the biggest part ourselves. I´m so proud to present our 7th full Movie this Year called SaneSemilia The gang has been killing it in every terrain all around the World.

The latest Sane Flick is the #Sanespringbreak it was a pleasure to film my homies at that action…..it was one of the most insane Setups I´ve ever Seen up on Nordpark Innsbruck – big up to Max Glatzl for the organization of that sick event!!!!! Take a look at the nice clip by Markus Klaes
From season to season you work more energetically with Sane Rinn Jib Park what events did you organize this year and thanks to this Spot works?
Yes it is a heart thing. This park has been around for more than 8 years and is getting better year by year. It only works so super good because the CREW is holding together… SANEGANG!!!!!!!!
This Year we haven’t any budget for the park, maybe next year we’ll find NEW Sponsors!!!!!(Let us Know Snowboard Industry)
