Zimtstern Snowboard Ambassador Reto Kestenholz swapped his snow- for a surfboard and went on a nice trip to France and Northern Spain for a month. Swell was good and there were waves to ride every day. His girlfriend took the beautiful pictures below.
Now Reto is back in Switzerland and on his snowboard again – he just went to Zermatt with his crew to celebrate the last warm days of the year in Zermatt. We hope he has lots of fun in the autumn sun!
Zimtstern Ambassador Renate Bickel just came back from a boat trip in Indonesia. She found a beautiful spot in West Sumatra with perfect waves, but unfortunately the exact coordinates are „top secret“, as Reni says. We are green with envy and already dreaming of our next surf trip when we are looking at these pictures.
Linus Bikendahl is hungry for the upcoming winter season. In New Zealand he started with his best ever positioning. With his run in the semi finals, a frontside air, backside 540, frontside 720, cab 720 & frontside 900 at the worldcup in Cardrona he placed himself on the 15th position. Great job Linus and we are looking forward to seeing more of that soon!
Zimtstern Snowboard Team Rider Helen Nadig and her boyfriend spent some weeks in the USA and came back with some beautiful shots! Here she tells what she loves about Amiland.
“How good was our vacation in the USA. Started in Seattle and drove down to L.A. After some sightseeing in Seattle and Portland we decided to go camping with the deers and bears…
…Mt. Hood, Crater Lake and two stops at the westcoast in the redwood national state park…
…Can you imagine USA without burgers, fries and shakes? Yes we did. Always cooked our delicious meals over the fire: pasta, rice, veggies…
…Ok, a crazy crunchy donut for dessert was in, sometimes…
…After some summer/winter time in San Francisco we cruised down to L.A.: Venice Beach, our favorite spot…
…You can skate, surf,…
…bike, run, swim, basketball, tennis, do exercise, whatever you prefer it’s awesome…
Red Hot Chili Peppers
…And if you are lucky you will see some famous musicians or actors. 1 hour in Venice and we already got a shot of the making of the „Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie“ videoclip and a little concert for free!..
…Our private Beverly Hills, Bel Air and the Hollywood sightseeing tour was pretty cool too. Thank you Zibbs…
…And sadly we are already back in Swissi now. But it’s nice here too!”
No miniramp tour stop last weekend but a lot of action in Luxembourg at the skate shooting. The Crew (Fabian Dörig, Ivo Schneiter, Cedric Romanens, Silvio Barro and Dominic Zimmermann) found tons of sick spots and was blessed with the nicest weather what resulted in a great number of awesome shots. Special thanks to all the locals and of course Howzee and our crew for making this happen!
Howzee is on tour with our skateboard team to get some lifestyle and action shots done of our next years summer collection (Spring/Summer 2012). This year’s location: Luxembourg. We’re looking forward to get to see all the shots! Check as well Howzee’s blog.
The Miniramp Tour stop at Free4Style was a huge success. Everyone in Estavayer-le-Lac was waiting for our dream team Happy Ivo and Ced la bombe to build up the Zimtstern miniramp one more time. Together with their friends from the French speaking part of Switzerland they were skating nearly round-the-clock, pushing eachother to the next level. In the end Mickey Iglesias won the competition on Sunday and Brandon Bacor got the freestyle.ch-ticket for the best trick.
The Zimtstern Miniramp is on tour again! Numerous events and festivals in Germany, Switzerland and Austria are on the schedule. Where it appears, no skate deck will stay safe, whether for a friendly jam session or for a contest battle.
The tour has already started in May at the CLASH in Berlin (D) and this weekend the Miniramp joins the Free4Style in Estavayer-Le-Lac (CH). After that it will go on to the Openair Frauenfeld (CH), the Boardstock in Zug (CH), the X-Days in Biel (CH) and the Freakwave in Bregenz (A). We are giving away a ticket to the final session at legendary freestyle.ch in Zurich (CH) at every foregoing event.
After each gig the Miniramp, broken down into its 122 parts, is being driven to the next stop on its own trailer. Follow the happenings of the Miniramp-Tour here in the Zimtstern Blog.
