Broken Board

With my new sponsor Revert 95 I’m motivated to ride comps again.

Last week I rode in St Moritz 3* competition. Super lot of snow, and for me a new face (part of the mountain where the competition takes part). It is a hard face to find your way, the face is concave. I missed my first cliff but drove into the steep and technical part quickly and took the double cliff as planned, the second was about 6 meters and I stumped it. I got the 3d place.

Yesterday I drove a comp in Hochfügen which I won 2 years ago. It had snowed 10 cm but below the snow was hard. I rode with my super lightweight Nitro Ultimate. A good board but not made ​​for large cliffs with icy landings. The day before the comp I broke the top layer because of a hard landing on ice blocks. In my 2nd cliff broke my board between my bindings. I tried to finish my line, but it ended in a fall and landed close to a rock.
