You travel quite often, how do you find it?

Yes, I travel quite a bit. May to August is the European summer so I'm back in Stockholm then but during the winter I travel all the time. I love it for sure. It has its negatives but overall it's wonderful.

Where did your career start?

I've always been into sports and started skateboarding when I was 5 years old, I was really young. I got into snowboarding when I was 8 and fell in love the first time I tried it. I started competing when I was 13 and then I won the Swedish championship in snowboarding. I studied snowboarding at school, it was pretty crazy. I got my first professional contract when I was 17.

What is your fitness routine?

In summer time I go to gym, I run, I try to keep my body fresh for the season. During the winter I snowboard everyday if I'm not travelling. I need the summer to recap and workout and when the season is on I snowboard all the time.

Do you have a favourite designer?

Chris1

No not really but I'm into fashion. In Sweden everybody is way into fashion, so of course I like to dress well. I'm more into street style.

What has been the highlight of your career?

My biggest highlight was when I was 21 and I won the European Open. It's the biggest snowboarding competition in Europe. After that I won others all over the world, but that was the biggest moment of my career.

Do you have any advice for aspiring snowboarders?

The most important thing is that you have a lot of fun. If you're having fun you will probably make it pretty far.

What's next for your career?

I'm flying back to Stockholm on Sunday then onto Austria to start my season.
