In anticipation of the premiere of Lipstick Production’s new movie Eurotic in Innsbruck tomorrow, we caught up with one of their stars for a little chat. And since Aimee Fuller‘s a hard working snowboard girl spending all her days training on the mountains, this interview comes a bit later than usual…
Interview by Anna Langer
Hey Aimee, where are you and what are you up to right now?
Right now I am in the beautiful Zillertal Valley of Austria! It’s like my second home this time of year, the Hintertux Glacier is on point, so just been getting those shred legs in check for the start of the season! And right at this very minute I am just off the physio bed! Had a pretty dope foot massage haha
Is there more snow now than there was during the Opening?
Yeah, it snowed a ton this weekend! It’s been hard conditions up there though, and pretty packed, but it’s been a great time sessioning specific features.
Which features do you have your eye on?
I am loving the medium jumps right now, so great for learning new things! I have been working on a few new tricks, and there all coming together so I’m pumped, there has been a rad crew of girls out here to shred with plus all of the GB lads, so it’s been a fun couple of weeks!
Which tricks are you working on? Or is it a surprise for the Pleasure Jam in November?
Just working on getting those dub backs on lock!
Will you be at Pleasure Jam again?
Yeah for sure, the Pleasure Jam is always a great time, start of the season, everyone is pumped, and the park there is on point! Power laps! I love it!
Why is Austria and especially the Zillertal so popular with the british pros?
Zillertal is just the spot right now! It’s really accessible from the UK, a cheap flight to Munich and then a transfer and you are here! Plus it’s nice to get in the mix of the Euro’s, the Brits are everywhere haha…
As almost Zillertal local, where’s your favourite place to eat?
Oh that’s a toughie… Got to love Beckna’s restaurant, just on the edge of town, he’s the Vans TM and his family runs the show in the Hoff [locals nickname for Mayrhofen]! I love going there to eat, it’s full on classic Austrian cuisine! And there are dudes dressed up in those Austrian outfits “not sure what they are called”, playing some classic upbeat Austrian tunes, it’s a rad atmosphere!
We heard you’ve got your very own glove out this winter too?
Yes, that rumour is most certainly correct, so excited about working with the Bliss by Level guy’s! It’s got leather palms and my logo on, and a splash of pink!
And it’s a mitt! Do you prefer them over finger gloves?
Mitt’s rule! They are just so much more comfortable, I feel restricted in finger gloves after wearing mitt’s. Warmer AND they look better haha
Did you design it yourself?
Yep, I am not the most arty! That’s for sure, you should see the first sketch, but the guy’s at Level got it bang on!
Really loved your backflip in the new Lipstick movie – have you seen it yet?
No I’ve not seen it, I can’t wait to check out the whole movie! Those girls have been ripping this year, the premier is in IBK tomorrow night, so I am going to head down and catch up with the girls and check out the movie whoo!
Are you gonna film again this winter?
Yes, I have a few exciting things up my sleeve actually… Not going to reveal any of that yet, but I’ll let you know when I do! [Make sure to check back for that – Aimee tends to keep her promises!]
How are you getting “eurotic” for the premiere tomorrow? More foot massages…?
Foot massage, maybe head massage, get the fro “hair” in check for tomorrow night!
That sounds like a plan! Any plans for tonight as well?
I think the plan is to go check out Tyler Choltron’s new movie later on, and head out for a BBQ. But no plans set in stone, see how the night roll’s but save the heavy partying for IBK tomorrow night I guess ;)!
Big shout out to my sponsors Roxy, Red Bull, Vans, Bliss by Level Gloves, TSA and the GB team, our boss Physio Alison, and the man of the moment out here in Austria CHEFF man Ewan!
And big thanks from us to Euan Baxter!
