Mario is around for quite a while and is one of the hottest upcoming riders in austria. He is from Chillertal valley and grew up shredding one of the best parks in europe, the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen. This shows in his riding style which is all about style, railskills and basically spinning in every direction perfectly!

CK hast beein in the game for a very long time and is still ripping. He can be described as a very powerfull rider who gets best during contests or film- and photoshoots. He is very professional and is a big help to the crew when it comes to guiding the young boys on the mountain.

Another well known ripper who has been around for a long time! Jocki has been and still is a long time member of the Pirates, and has had several astonishing movie parts in the last decade. He is currently finishing his studies in Innsbruck and is still charging hard. Powderjumps and natural terrain is what he loves most!

Another young gunner from Chillertal Valley who grew up shredding the hills and parks of the Penken. Technical spins over big jumps is what he likes to do most but also heavy metal is nothing that makes him feel uncomfortable.

Phips is well known in europes scene and had quite a lot coverage in the last years. He is a well rounded snowboarder and can do it all! Nevertheless you can see a slight preference for powder jumps that he builds together with his best shred mates Stani and Herby. Stoked to have him on board!

Rudi is CKs twin brother and still going big thats for sure! During the Sölden Session he pulled some massive FS 7 tails and stomped it somewhere far down! He is still snowboarding every free minute and that will never change!

Stani is simply one of the most stylish riders out there an makes everything look smooth and good! Last year he tried to work on collecting shots for the movie but also focused on getting the double corks on lock. In summer he likes to travel to Indo to get some surfing done and to prepare for the winter.

The last winter was tough for Tom as he had to struggle with a tough injury which he suffered during a trip to Mount Baker mid season. Nevertheless we managed to get some filming done on a big parkjump in Kronplatz. In the upcoming season he will be back, so better be prepared!

Guess what? Another ripper from Chillertal valley, there must be a secret snowboard boot camp somewhere. This kid has it all! A sweet smile, good looks and some really nasty and technical manouvers on kickers and rails! Welcome TRamo.

Wögna literally exploded last year and you can see him all over the place and thats because of his ability to charge hard in the city! Rails, ledges, bomb drops - no big deal for this guy from lower austria, who spend a fair amount of time in foreign countries in the last season. A lot more to come and Argon Films is happy to have him on board!

Yesssss, Zillachtal again. Flo is a very creative rider and got some cool double grab and shifty variations in his repertoire. Rather mellow in normal life he goes crazy on the mountain and rips everything apart.Big Upsss!

Party Machine, nasty pool skater and speaker. Chris Cab is more of an outgoing person so to say and we are happy to have him as part of the crew.
