Honored Master of Sports of Russia in freestyle (snowboarding).
“It all started with a home-made board made over the Arctic Circle in Yamal. It was love at first sight - from an early age. I realized that snowboarding is what I would like to devote my life to! After all, I managed to make it my life’s work! Thanks to the snowboarding, I could meet lots of amazing people. All of them are different but with the same passion for freeriding. To this day we are pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved and discovering the new directions.
