I

discovered Ben last year during the Telus Triple Challenge, I'll always

remember him fly past me during his in-run to the big air jump,

screaming: "switch 12". Since then, we got Moment's on his feet through

his shop sponsor, Magik 4, in Laval, Quebec, the only shop currently

carrying Moment Skis in Quebec.

My

2007/2008 season can be summed up in 3 words: Filming, coaching and

comps. This was my third year coaching on the ICEQ team at Mont Avila,

one of the only Freestyle Teams in Quebec. I managed to film a lot of

Urban and Park for my segment in the next release by NSF Productions,

"Why not". I also participated in some competitions like the Axis

Slopestyle, Rodeofest, FreeSkittles and the upcoming Urban Jib at Mont

Tremblant. I’ll also be participating in the biggest event by Magik 4,

the Jib El Chalet, April 12-13.

Thanks to Moment, I’ve had a

great season because of these awesome skis. However, the season isn’t

over yet, and I’m going to participate in as many competitions as

possible, and keep filming. Many more great moments are yet to be had!

En Francais:

Ma

saison 2007/2008 se résume en 3 mots : shooting, coaching et compé.

J’ai coaché pour ma 3ieme saison l’équipe iceq du mont avila qui est

une des seule équipe de compétition freestyle au Québec. J’ai aussi

filmé du street et du park pour le prochain film de NSF Productions

«Why not ». J’ai participer a quelques compétitions comme le Axis

Slopestyle, le Rodeofest, FreeSkittles et bientôt le Urbain Jib a

Tremblant. Je serai aussi présent pour un des plus gros événement de l

‘hiver organisé par le Magik4 : Jib El Chalet, le 12-13 avril prochain.

Je peux dire que grace a Moment Skis, j’ai passé une très belle

hiver car j’ai adorer mes skis. Bref, la saison n’est pas fini et je

compte en profiter pour faire le plus de compétitions possible qui

reste et de filmer au maximum pour notre prochain film et continuer a

passé des bons MOMENTS.
