Horsefeathers Young Blood – Timon Matena

A only 12 years old and already a lover of skateboarding, surfing and especially mountains and snowboarding. In cooperation with the Freeride.cz, we interviewed our Rookie team member - Timon Matena.

Hmmm, with occasional riding in the mountains and a participation at Horsefeathers Kids Snowboard Tour is how our small talk about Timon Matena began. Timon is 12 years old and he is simply insane when it comes to riding. Such energy and creativity are shining from him all the time. Before you click on the link with the interview, let’s read his short bio.

Let’s write it for the third time, but yes even if Timon Matena is only 12 years old, he probably travelled to more countries that some of you did until now. As we mentioned above, he loves skateboarding, surfing, fishing, but mostly mountains and snowboarding. We are happy that he is part of the Horsefeathers Kids Snowboard Tour this year as well because all of us are just so fixated when we watch him ride. Timon is a fireball, has no fear to ride with the older riders and compete with them. When it comes to the best countries for riding, he recommends trying Japan, South America but mostly Colorado and Utah. (And tell me now, have you ever been there…?).

How and when did you begin with snowboarding?

I was 6 years old travelling with my parents in Argentina. That was the moment when my father showed me what snowboarding is. After Argentina, I didn’t ride for over a year but started again when I was 8.

Is there any continent you didn’t visit until now?

Haha, nope, not really, or if we count Antarctica as continent that’s a place I still didn’t have a chance to visit.

Where would you like to go to ride?

I would definitely love to go back to America, mostly to Park City in Utah. I wish to ride in Alaska and as much as possible in America.

Where can we meet you shredding and who are your shredding buddies?

You can meet me in Vitkovice or at Horni Misecky in Spindleruv Mlyn. My coach is Martin Poppr and I always have a great time when riding with Honza Lohynsky or Petr Horak.

What’s your snowboard goal?

I would love to win an X-Games, because I like the medal, where the X is turning on itself.

What do you like instead of things we mentioned already?

Pyrotechnics :-).

Plans for rest of the season? 

For sure Austria and then back to Czech to Spindleruv Mlyn.

After this interview you can be sure that Timon is an evil young blood, spending lots of time in the mountains and because he wants and needs to keep himself warm and in a cosy mood in check to be able to enjoy his riding as much as possible, he needs proper clothing as well. Timon chose a “blue combo” for this season including Falcon Kids jacket and Pinball Kids pants.
