MOUNTAIN HIGH

Piece of Me

“And we don’t care about our own faults, talking about our own style ”

- Peter Bjorn & John – Young Folks

One of the biggest problems of being a citizen of The Netherlands is; the height of the mountains only tops at 322,7m.  As a temporary German citizen I have now experienced the ‘real winter’. I have had the opportunity to go to the mountains with just a car ride on the weekend. This is far beyond my dutch winter experience, and it was so ‘easy’.

Even though it’s only 5 days every year, just five days, I define snowboarding as a great passion in my life. It is the unique moments given by this sport that makes me come back to the mountains every year. Having the opportunity to see snowboarding as a weekend activity made me experience a whole different behaviour on the mountains. The pressure to hit the mountains as much as possible during this one week completely vanished. The only focus I had, to get better in my techniques in those 5 days. This shifted to enjoying the time on the mountain with nothing more than you and your board.

 .

My experience and the feeling while on the board may have changed but the use of good winter-sport equipment has always remained the same. To own good equipment is a requirement, not only for safety or comfort, but most off all for personal satisfaction. I started with snowboarding at the age of 8, with my first Burton snowboard. Now, a few sizes taller, it is time for some new gear.

 .

The equipment of Burton is without a doubt the perfect fit for me. “We owe it to snowboarding” – Jake Burton, and this is a clear translation of their vision of the products. Always a rider point of view, Burton is focused on innovation to improve to ride at any height. The products, in my opinion, make it clear that it is possible to provide high performance that blends seamlessly with style, fit and function. They give me the feeling of comfort, while riding and that is for me the most important focus of all.

 .

I did my research and Burton seeks to improve not just the use of sustainable material, but the process as a whole. Projects from high-grade fabrics woven with recycled plastic from soda bottles to becoming a bluesign® system partner to ensure environmental responsibility. High Five!

 .

Together with some Germans I hit the mountains of 2014. Other country, other people, new experience and a new style by Burton. The jacket was the last addition to this all, and took me to the top of the mountain. From “The White collection” by Shaun White, a tiger printed jacket, one word; miau. An addition to my outerwear; not only for the mountains but also the streets of Amsterdam. .

Thanks guys for all who joined me and let’s plan the next mountain weekend trip a.s.a.p!
