Spotlight | Simon Pircher

First up in the 'Spotlight' series - Simon Pircher

Introducing Spotlight, the first in a series of interviews shining a light on some of snowboarding’s finest. Together with a video edit – catering for minimal attention spans – we’ve got a list of ‘Top Threes’ that wrestle with the burning questions of our time, from ‘how to survive a zombie apocalypse’ to ‘all-time favourite snowboard films’.

First up in the Spotlight series we’ve got Austrian jib king Simon Pircher. Simon’s a rad street rider with an uncanny ability for hunting out unusual spots; delivering the right trick, in the right location, always in that effortless style. Watching him snowboard is like getting an eye massage. If you want to see more make sure you check his all-out street assault in CLUB 27.
