Lisa Filzmoser: Insider Interview

Lisa Filzmoser is one of the strongest female snowboarders out there: fearless, feisty and equally at ease whether riding in the park or on powder. Her riding has taken her on many travels and she has participated in heaps of snowboard movies, including all-girl offerings Float, Dropstitch, Last Winter and Transfer.

Our lucky team at Cooler recently took a cycling trip round Berlin with Lisa – check out the pics by clicking on our exclusive photo gallery (right)!

Basically she rocks… Here her boyfriend Alvaro gets to ask a few questions on Cooler’s behalf.

Top 5 dishes
Kartoffelgulasch, kaspressknödlsuppe, sushi, pizza, veggies + rice + fish, or a really nice steak.

Top 5 places to ride
Arlberg, Hintertux, Selkirk (interior BC), Mt. Baker, Dachstein.

Top 5 ways to chill
Sleep for 20 mins, watch a movie, take a bath, hang out with friends, drink tea.

Top 5 singers
Bob Dylan, Amy Winehouse, Elvis Presley, Erykah Badu, Nina Simone.

Do you hook up more boys by wearing Nikita?
Sure and more girls too… juuust kiidding. No, I think Nikita has just the perfect clothing for me. It is super comfy and the style is unique. The new catalogue shows so many different styles and they also use graphics from different artists. I think it is so good to see ordinary women in the clothes – they always use their team riders for the fashion shoots, rather than just models. Heida, Runar and the whole Nikita crew, you guys rock!

What makes you laugh and what makes you cry?
My boyfriend’s hair definitely makes me laugh. He has those really thin curls, and they always turn out different or weird. Sometimes they can also look really good. But they can also look really frizzly and then he looks like an antique prince. Ha ha! And his bad jokes can also make me laugh… but sometimes cry too.

What inspires you?
That’s not that easy to answer because there is so much that inspires me. First the whole environment around me, my friends, my family, travelling, music, photos, paintings, nature…

Right or left?
I am regular, right hander, and I can turn right and left… that’s a pretty amazing fact, isn’t it?
