In 2003 or 2004, I recieced my first skis in form of a Christmas present. They were a pair of Salomon 1080′s Vincent Dorion promodel. They were two year old, used demo-skis, with barely a rear tip to go switch with. I had pink skiboots, bought at a garage-sale for 20$, they were too big for my feet. My poles were 2 meter high, and my clothes weren’t exactly fashionably right at that time. But I learned all the tricks I could possible do, and I got good at it. Yesterday my sponsor at Storlien, LeSki, got my first pair of skis on their wall with my name on. So cool to see them again!
