GB: So where are you when you write this?
AB: In the toilet on this funcking Frisco motel.

GB: If you could have one rider as your evil twin, who would it be?
AB: Louif Paradis

GB: If you were the evil one, what would your evil powers be?
AB: Be the master of weather. 50 cm of fresh powder every night and sunshine every day.

GB:You're in a big air comp, what trick do you pull out?
AB: Double cork dude, sure!

GB: You're now in a freestyle comp, what trick you pulling off now?
AB: Nollie Double cork to fs boardslide pretzel !
I don’t like comp. Maybe because I’m bad … ?

GB: Do you prefer perfect parks or perfect powder?
AB: Perfect powder in a perfect park … with nobody …only friends

GB: Where's your top place to ride?
AB: My bed

GB: What's your favourite board and why do you like it?
AB: Airobic and evil twin limited edition. You can ride every terrains with

GB: Where do you plan to be riding this season?
AB: I’m right now in Colorado to ride good parks like here in Keystone. After Christmas, I will pass my season in Crans Montana with the Ero One crew filming BC and jib. I will certainly make a rail trip in Europe but for the moment, I don’t know where, maybe Finland or Sweden.

GB: What's your one aim by the end of the season?
AB: Having the better video part I can produce with the maximum of media parution. Both things with having fun with my friends and shredding parks.

GB: Boards have changed in the last 10 years. How different do you think they'll be in 10 years time?
AB: They will ride for you. No, f*ck, I don’t know dude !
Did you see the Lib tech podcast with Scotty Witlake ?! I hope the board he get will not be the future !

GB: Snowboarding is evolving crazy fast too. Do you think it'll stop getting better, or do you think there'll be a limit where people can't ride any bigger?
AB: I think the way to go, the royal way in BC is to ride big mountain and natural getting technical and style tricks first try.
In rails, I think, now, it will be interested to be creative. Maybe, the idea will be to put technical and funny tricks on spot no common.
For me, the idea is more to have fun on a board and to be creative more than riding a kicker with 40 meter of flat or a rail with 35 stairs.
