Mervin MFG After Sales Meeting

Mervin MFG After Sales Meeting in the Ritter Kuchl in Hall, Innsbruck with Pete Saari, Mike Olson, Travis Rice, Eric Jackson & Kaitlyn Farrington

I’m not gonna lie, I love my job. Every profession has its up- and downsides, but for me, personally, the upsides of working in snowboard media can (probably) never be outplayed. Even if three deadlines collide with powder and a yoga workshop on the other end of the continent (almost).

So when I was invited to attend the Mervin MFG After Sales Meeting in Innsbruck I didn’t even think for a second but started packing various bags for a day of pow riding with Travis Rice, Eric Jackson, Nicolas Müller & Kaitlyn Farrington, two nights of Austrian shenanigans & knights dinner with Mervin legends such as Pete Saari & Jesse Burtner, followed by a core power yoga workshop with Meghan Currie in Cologne straight after…

5 days packed full of everything I love! And a train ride spanning two countries…

Mervin is known for „brain washing“ and their family vibes definitely totally got me…. Movie legend Eric Jackson, team wizard Jesse Burtner & Olympic half pipe gold medalist Kaitlyn Farrington couldn’t be more down to earth

When you cross an Austrian christmas market with a bunch of booze-loving snowboards, there’s no way you can pass without stopping for the infamous Glühwein…

Mervin MFG - Test Center Stubai Glacier Pow

Blue bird and some fresh pow just in time for the test event on the Stubai Glacier. Although those brand new Lib Tech & Gnu shred machines did get a bit of a battering…

Shredding pow on the Stubai glacier was followed by a traditional „knights dinner“ in the Ritter Kuchl in Hall, where you eat loads of meat with little cutlery (knives only) and some ancient rules. Proper fuel for a weekend full of handstands and arm balances ahead…

Meghan Currie Workshop Cologne

2 hours in the car, 5 hours on the train and a super hectic subway ride later, I found myself in the other world that I love: upside down on a yoga mat, next to my best friend, listening to the wise words of one of my favourite teachers out there: the lovely Meghan Currie.

Make a wish & and it might come true!
