West Snowboarding team rider Elena Koenz has just released her latest short movie ‘Il Dat Alb’ showcasing her journey in creating ,,The Dragon Line’’- a new freestyle line in Bergbahnen Motto Naluns, Scuol.
“Elena has always maintained a close relationship with both art and snowboarding and this movie shows how the two intrinsically complement each other”
Elena has always maintained a close relationship with both art and snowboarding and this movie shows how the two intrinsically complement each other. Both are expressions of creativity; both are movements of the body and both require an imagination for the unknown.
An underlying message of Il Dat Alb is the beauty that can be found in seemingly mundane objects. Elena upcycled all the equipment to create this park line, using old stock from the resort and with a helping hand from the shapers. In the current climate emergency, it’s now more important than ever for us all to reduce our footprint and become conscious with our consumption. Il Dat Alb is a great example of giving unwanted possessions a new lease of life. One mans trash and all that, eh?
“A high-end NHS base ensures you’ll be turning and burning with speed and precision”
Swiss born Elena has been a dominant force in the freestyle scene for years, with appearances at the Olympics and several big movie parts. If you like what you see you can cop Elena’s signature West Snowboard here. A camber dominant profile allows for mega pop and stability at speed, whilst the twin tip rocker mellows out the ride slightly and aids with catch-free riding. A high-end NHS base ensures you’ll be turning and burning with speed and precision and the slight set back delivers power and control. A real all-mountain board, the Elena Koenz pro model is the perfect choice for any girl who wants to rip across the whole hill.
