Top 50 Snowboarders To Watch This Year


Having been dropped by his long-time sponsor Burton, few would have blamedSwiss shredder and DJ Frederik Kalbermatten (AKA Fredi K) for going into semi-retirement in his home resort of Saas Fee. But while he had a couple of quiet seasons, recently Fredi has come back with a vengeance with a hammer part in Standard Films 2112 and an insane X Games Real Snow Backcountry section (below).

This winter he’ll feature in Jake Blauvelt’s ‘Naturally’ (rumour has it that his contributions are insane!) as well ‘Livin‘ alongside Top 50 neighbour Shayne Pospisil. Apparently he’s become one of Jake’s favourite ever riding buddies, and if that’s not a ringing endorsement, coming as it does from a man who hangs out with the Jackson brothers, Terje and Travis, then I don’t know what is!
