Anne-Flore Marxer On The Cover of Cooler Magazine
Excerpt from Anne-Flore’s Interview:
What trends in snowboarding do you like right now?
Riding amazingly in natural terrain and deep powder is much harder and looks much better. Gigi style! as for fashion? I’ll stay baggy!
Do you get sick of being snapped?
Yeah photos are boring. but it’s the job part… and if you do it right you can keep shredding for a living.
What does snowboarding teach us about life?
Enjoy the moment, go for it 200 per cent, overcome your fears and have Fun!
Does europe have a lot of catching up to do in terms of us riding?
In terms of building good parks – yeS!! For putting young sports on TV – YES!! But for shredding, we’ve got the best mountains in the world!
Park or powder?
What’s the biggest difference between men and women’s riding?
Women are still having the time of their life when they shred. guys are just trying to look cool!
How concerned are you about global warming?
I’m concerned about recycling stuff and biking instead of taking a car, fixing old stuff instead of buying new things and giving old clothes to people who don’t have their own. But i don’t put it under “global warming”, it’s just common sense. Did you know that you only need 10 plastic bottles to make a pair of boardshorts?
How do you relax?
I sleep tons after doing good sport. and I do yoga.
How good are you at surfing?
I’m not good at all! But I’m progressing now that I go everyday. I catch about three waves a session but I still can’t duck dive yet.
What’s on your iPod?
Chaka Khan, Amy Winehouse, Lenny Kravitz, Aretha Franklin, Axelle Red, Bob Marley, Fugees and Pat Benetar.
Do you have any aspirations beyond snow?
I really don’t know. I’m doing my job now as well as I can, and then we’ll see what comes along.
Where is women’s snowboarding heading over the next five years?
Did you take me for a bohemian hand reader?
