One of our favourite Euro shredders and former Cooler Cover Star Lisa Filzmoser has signed a two years contract with Nikita Outerwear! After being on the streetwear team for quite some time already, she has now enlarged her partnership with the brand and will be rocking in Nikita from head to toe. Just as it's supposed to be for a true Girl Who Rides.
And here's some more info from the official press release:
Lisa met Runar and Heida at IPP camp in May 2003 at the time when she was filming for snowboard movie Dropstitch. She got onto Nikita’s International Team in 2005 and since then has had a lot of good times in Iceland. The last few years has seen her travel to many different places. “I was with Helly Hansen outerwear since 2005, which was a great experience and I am where I am now because of them. Now its time to move on and I am just super stoked to ride for Nikita Outerwear also!“
It’s no secret Lisa is a top female snowboard talent, with appearances in a lot of movies in the last few years. She has been part of Dropstitch, Transfer, Last Winter, Float, Whiteever, more recently Stance alongside the likes of Jenny Jones, Gretchen Blieler and Hana Beaman and a feature part in La Famiglia movie ’Serious...not’. Most of the movies she has worked on were all girls. She loves to work with both girls and movies involving guys. “I don’t care if it is girls or guys I ride with as long as everyone is motivated and fun to ride with. Sure there is a difference between girls and guys crews; with girls I can just do all the girls talk and have fun with them, with the guys I like their fast approach to get stuff done on the mountain but I honestly love both.“
She’s on the filming and shooting train again working on a new filming project with True Color Films. Alongside Alvaro Vogel, Rene Schnöller, Filippo Kratter, Nicholas Wolken and more friends, they will be headed on a series of four trips to countries like Italy, Japan, Austria and Argentina. “Four short snowboard movies with legit riding and good editing, without forgetting the fun we have on the snow. Each video will have a run-time of around 10 to 15 minutes per movie."
Check out www.truecolorfilms.com for more info, little videos and photos on the blog. The movies will also be available as free downloads online, so watch out for them! Lisa is currently in Japan after her first trip with them to Italy. Read about it on the Nikita Blog – nikitaclothing.com/blog
She has a great attitude and has an enviable style powering through park or busting out moves in big mountain terrain and powder. Picking her dream day out riding Lisa says “it has to be with powder and friends. If it’s super fun treeruns in snowy weather, a kicker or hiking session in backcountry, its all super fun and satisfying.“
Finally, Lisa had this to say; “I am super stoked to be on the Nikita Outerwear Team now too! The clothes just stand out, by design and comfort and all the passionate people that are behind it! I just love Nikita!“
The feeling is mutual and Geiri, Nikita’s International Marketing Man is super happy to welcome her..."We love Lisa and we love the fact that she is now also part of our Outerwear team. She is an awesome, talented, beautiful human being and it is our great privilege to welcome her to our outerwear family."
