hellllllooooo!

i am back home from my trip to japan!

short story about the trip! my first filming day started not how i expected it! i tried to jump through some trees and i knew that further down were some more trees in my run out! first try was mellow but the on the second try the landing spit me out, directly into the trees! you can trust me it was a hell of a slam!!! i had to go to the hospital to get some stitches and now i have a little scar above my eye! at the next day my snowboarding felt a little bit weird but after some jumps i got used to it again!  from that time on we snowboarder 5 days- one day off and then another 7days with lots of hiking! from my point of few it was one of the best and productive trips ever but super exhausting time for my body! last words: everybody who got the change to travel to japan should do it! the people there are so amazing, helpful, such a nice country!!!! check out the photos, they tell more the words!

shredd on!

mountain trial bormio:
two and a half days mountain trial biking in bormio/ italy!
amazing training’s trip with my local friends ( leo, knickl, pingi, potzi)!
it was a crazy trip:  two and a half days trail biking from around 8am till 7pm, around 14 hours on the bike, around 20 liter’s of gas, between 10 000-15000 altitude differences over the 2,5 days,! each of us had to carry 2liters of extra gas! without the extra gas it wouldn’t be possible to race the whole day and get not stuck somewhere on the mountain! crazy experience- thx boys for the good moments!

Pirate Movie Production is back with their new 2012 snowboard film release, UNIQUE 8.

The title refers to the innovative riding of a selected crew of only 8 riders: Gigi Rüf, Marco Feichtner, Arthur Longo, Nicolas Müller, Kalle Ohlson, Teo Konttinen, Chris Sörman and Werni Stock. You decide if less is more!

PMP also switched from their beloved 16mm format to RED high definition digital cameras, but stayed true to their analog approach of titling.

The UNIQUE 8 premiere tour will kick off in Innsbruck on September 14th and will gather snowboard enthusiasts worldwide to party and get hyped on the upcoming season. You can find all the tour dates on http://www.pirate-movie-production.com

UNIQUE 8 will be available as DVD, which includes a 100-page art and photo book packed with incredible still images by Carlos Blanchard (ESP), Matt Georges (FRA), Tobias Ludescher (AUT), Jerome Tanon (FRA), Cole Barash (USA) and Rip Zinger (JAP) that were captured during last season’s Pirate adventures. The DVD/booklet also features high-class art, which was produced during isolationCamp 2012, a creative-minded gathering that unites various artistic friends from all over Europe.
