A happy snowboarder born in the very middle of Sweden that takes life as it comes, and tries to enjoy every little bit of it. Never really been surrounded by mountains but luckily enough loves to travel around, so I always make sure that I’m in a place were there’s snow, mountains, hills, basically any were you can snowboard and have fun. Live and enjoy!

Kalle’s comment on Snowboarding and travelling in general:
The life of a snowboarder. Travelling around the world to find the best conditions, terrain and what not. How great is it?
Most people, almost everybody is jealous when you say, “that’s my job”. They think you’re out cruising deep pow everyday with blue sky, shredding a park in slushy snow with just a hoodie on and sunshades, or hanging in the bar drinking beer. That’s half of the real truth. They don’t think about the snowstorms, -25 Celsius, hours and hours of shovelling, hiking, sitting on airplanes or in a car for 24 h. They don’t think about you breaking a leg and spending 2 months on the couch. All of this sucks, no matter who you are!
So then what is the real deal? Well if you ask me. I’d say that you have to work hard, you have to sometimes deal with your toes getting numb cause it’s freaking cold or break a leg to reach something up there, but what can you choose in life that’s all walking on sunshine? Probably nothing. I mean the best things in life DON’T come for free. So after dealing with those long travellings, hours of shovelling, what’s left then??? The pay off, the reason we all, or at least I started snowboarding for. Turning your board in deep pow, park shredding in spring time, rail shredding, hitting booters up on the mountain, being outdoors with the sun in your face, landing heavy tricks for your video part and getting that great feeling in your stomach, and to top it all off, your out doing all of this with your good friends. What more can you ask for!? What could be better then that? I really don’t know…. Thank you snowboarding for being an option in Life!
