How long have you been snowboarding? How and why did you start?

I have been snowboarding for about 10 years. I started because my grandmother “forced” me. We are from a small town on the Asturian coast and she had never seen snow. So she practically forced me to go up to the mountain with my uncles.

Where do you usually train?

Between seasons I ride indoor in Holland, in summer I take a break and in winter I try to move between Switzerland and Austria mainly.

How was your last season (2019/2020)? What would you highlight?

It was quite brief although I was lucky to start it in October with the opening of the glaciers in Austria.

I have been a finalist in rockarail and 4 in jibking.

At the end of February I returned to Spain from Austria and the season ended there, we already know why… Regarding new tricks, I am trying quite a few things in switch. The last trick I learned before coming was a sw fs board and I’m super happy! I hope I can practice it again soon.

What plans do you have for the next season (2020/2021)?

My goals for the next season are that there is snowboard season and that we can enjoy it! For now there are no plans, although I’m sure I will visit Austria if the covid allows it.
