  • Neil's back to the Bruck!

    I recently got back to Innsbruck for the season and it's been a cool welcome, just the way I like it! I'll like the images do the talking, check them out below

    We had to fit 2 bikes, 2 ski bags and 2 other bags into a train, then a plane, then a bus but it turned out that fitting them and us into Lukas' car for the last 2km was the toughest part

    And back on the mountains!

    Much more to come, this is only from the first few days skiing! We'll start filming for the El Flamingo webisodes and the next Whiteroom Production movie soon so stay tuned for updates of radness.

  • Novembruck

    It's been an epic start to the season here in Innsbruck- I haven't skied a November in the Northern Hemisphere before and I didn't know it would be this good. The Austrian glaciers have been treating me really well, and I've been lucky enough to ski better-than-average conditions for this time of year. A big thanks to the Innsbruck crew, especially Fabi, Jochen, Julian and Lukas for giving me a place to stay and a ride to the mountains, as well as the rest of the crew for being so fun to shred with!

    For a start check this out, my FWT buddy Raphi Webhofer filmed me ranting about Komperdell poles and protectors while wearing my new Surfanic Hunter Jacket and Eaton Pant, I put an edit together and they put it on the front page of their website! I think they are the biggest pole company in the world so I'm stoked, check out the comedy edit- it includes unused helmet cam footage from the For a Few Lines More movie as well as super recent footage from the Innsbruck glaciers with me in the new Surfanic gears.

     

    Also check this out, I got another poster from Fischer this year! Thanks for the pic Klaus P, Downdays.eu bossman.

    I'm @neilwilliman on Instagram

     

    Here's another few of my favourite instagram pics that I've got since I've been here, already captioned on the right side:

     

     

     

     

    And check it out I got the cover image of the Planks team edit! Rocking out in my favourite Surfanic gears from last year- blue Blasted jacket and white Prime pants.

    Can you handle more content? This is another video promo that I filmed and edited to help promote the launch of Dr Zipe's new goggle the Headmaster. It's got some of my favourite pow shots from South America, along with my Fischer teamate Niki Salencon. This is the last of my South America content really, but my love affair with that place is going to continue.

     

    I'm here training for another week and then embarking on a trip that will take me Innsbruck-Stockholm-Christchurch-Vancouver-Revelstoke-Vancouver-Stockholm-Innsbruck before 2014 hits. On the way I will attend/organise the NZ Premier of 'For a Few Lines More' (check out the poster below), compete in the Freeride World Tour stop at Revelstoke, achieve frequent flier status and drive a car from Sweden back to Innsbruck with my beautiful girlfriend Tove. Gonna be a good one!

    Be there!
