Concrete On Fire

My first skate session went down yesterday. On board my buddies Alessandro, Jeremiah, Biffi and Franz-Josef back from his world cruise. Over 30° C and the concrete's on fire!

Uwe Kluba Surfboards

Still no change of subject. Last week at the MBM Surfdays we met Uwe Kluba a german shaper living in the south of Porugal. We were so stoked on his stuff that Markus Keller, Mat Bumann and me all bought a board. See Mä's super fun little Simmons board on the photos. Uwe's an awesome and honest guy with great skills so be sure to stop by his workshop if cruising around Sagres!

Much Better Now

Much Better Now from Salon Alpin on Vimeo. interview

Speaking of surfing I just found my interview on! It's for sure one of the sickest surfing blogs on the globe and always worth to check out! It's also a platform for some of the most ambitious artists in the surfing scene like filmers, shapers, photographers etc. to feature their work. Of course I'm super stoked and honored! Thanks to Reis Paluso and Cyrus Sutton!

MBM Surfdays 2012

I just got home from the MBM Surfdays in Portugal. No awesome waves but awesome times for sure! We were staying at the Quiksilver Lodge from Pure Surfcamp a great place to chill and have some beers with good people. Thank's to everyone for making this happen! Check out some more pictures and footage on

San Gottardo, Lago Maggiore, Vallemaggia, Birra e Salto Mortale

The last trip of the snowboard season is over. It was absolutely epic thanks to the great crew. Tom, Mula, Colin and Dave!

I'm looking gratefully back to a great season of lots of good times, shooting, skiing, snowboarding, meeting new people and making new friends. Next up - surfing! Life's awesome.

 On the road with an RV full of fools. Marco Smolla, DBK, Colin Frei and filmer Tom Elliot. Good times!

The Reason Cover No. 2

 Long time no post! My annual blogging-laziness is over and I wanna start again by showing you some coverage. I just had a copy of the last The Reason issue of the season in my mail. It features my second cover in a row in the British mag showing Levi with a freedom pose beneath a tree in Bellwald. Also Levi in deep Fiescher December powder on the intro and a Fs1 Indy drop. Last but not least 8 pages featuring our Cooke City sled adventure. Stoked! Thanks guys!

Up next is a Road Trip to the Swiss passes with my friends from Isenseven. So stay tuned!
