7 Questions With Sarka Pancochova

Flow Snowboarding team athlete Sarka Pančochová has been travelling all over the globe this winter. We had the opportunity to catch up with Pancochova this week to see how her winter travels and snowboarding have been going.

How has the start to your winter been and where have you been riding?

I went all over the place. November was little bit early for my knee to start riding. Instead I went to California… surfed and went rock climbing. I spent most of December in Breckenridge, CO getting my feet back. It has been going pretty great so far.

Breck. Nice. Who have you been riding with up there?

Mostly with my roommates Celia Miller and Sandra Hillen. Also Cheryl Maas came to visit and we took some fun runs.

What kind of training and rehab were you doing for your knee in order to get back to competing?

I have been biking, surfing, rock climbing and also going to gym a lot. Mostly balance exercises. It’s going pretty great. I’m slowly coming back to feel like myself on my board again.

You were in Kreischberg, Austria for the FIS World Championships, right?

The course was really slushy and then got super icy. I ended up pulling out. I needed more time to get back and get my tricks together. I wanna be 100% killing it when I compete.

What’s next on the agenda? Where are you planning on travelling to or riding?

X Games, the European Open and US open. I am going to Turkey ride some pow in February. I am also planning on going to Mt. Baker for the Banked Slalom. A lot of powder riding and filming this year. I can’t wait.

Are there any other events or film shoots of note you want to mention?

I am trying to work on my own thing. Film little bit this year and see what happens. I want to include all my friends and have lot of fun.

You have joined Protect Our Winters project. What would you like to say about your work with POW?

I always feel like I need to do more for the environment. The snowboarding I do is not the most clean sport so I try to make up for it everywhere else. Protect Our Winters is great way to get people involved and educate about how they can help.

Have you had a chance to check out the Sarka Pančochová film BOB’s On Tour (CLICK HERE) or her Winter 2013-14 edit (CLICK HERE)?

Special Olympic Athlete Daina Shilts Partnered Up With Hannah Teter At X-Games Dual Slalom

Flow Snowboarding and Wisconsin’s Special Olympic Athlete Daina Shilts started snowboarding seven years ago and this week she is one of ten Special Olympians participating in the X-Games in Aspen, Colorado.

“I wanted something a little more challenging and a little more fun,” Daina said in an interview with WSAW-TV, the local Wisconsin CBS affiliate.

“I just wanna be really active. I don’t like sitting around and doing nothing. It really bothers me.”

“I absolutely love it,” Daina said of snowboarding. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

Daina will be competing in the Dual Slalom, partnered with Hannah Teter in the first ever unified sports Special Olympics today. Competing is nothing new to Daina. She was also in South Korea competing in 2013, bringing home a gold and two silver medals.

“I met Hannah in South Korea and I am looking forward to seeing her again,” said Daina. “She has always been a big role model to me and I am pumped to be riding with her.”

“Working with The Special Olympics has been an absolute blast,” said Tyler Daigler of Flow Snowboarding.

“Daina is a top notch athlete and helping her be more competitive with highly advanced Flow gear has been a privilege. All of us at Flow are rooting for her today.”

Daina and the Shilts family went up a couple days early to Aspen to do some freeriding, well before the the X-Games got started.

“The whole trip has been really fantastic,” Daina said. “I am having an absolute blast. I have been riding Aspen Snowmass a lot, doing laps from the top to the bottom. So much fun.”

“I want to thank everybody at Flow. I love Flow snowboards I’ve been a Flow boarder ever since I started riding. I once tried another board and it wasn’t the same. Amazing snowboards, boots and bindings. Every time I am out on the hill, I keep receiving complements on my gear.”

Max Zipser 3rd Overall For Line of the Year


Max Zipser nominated for Line of the year from M-Line Freeski TV on Vimeo.

Flow Snowboarding team athlete Max Zipser recently placed 3rd place and won 1st place the jury selection for Line of the Year.

“I called the Line La Rampa, as it has had obviously no name yet,” Zipser explained. “It is located in the Ötztaler alps. As I’m out there quite often, I am always looking for something new and untouched. That line came into my eyes and I was immediately on fire to do that descent.”

“The chute ends over a 500 feet cliff and is very narrow and steep with an exit just as much as you need to pass with a snowboard. The tricky thing is to be fast enough in the upper part not to get washed out with the sluff you release and then make the connection to the lower and less exposed part of the line. Being patient is one of the most important things in the mountains and finally I’m super happy that I could ride La Rampa in such good snow conditions but stable enough not to shit my pants while climbing up.”

“To be placed 1st by the Jury of the Line Of The Year Award and coming 3rd overall was a big reward! It was a great event and it`s always cool to get together with people who share the same passion!”
