Tell us NIKOLAY…

Three words to describe what snowboarding is for you?

Earlier I would have said that it is my whole life. But now perhaps it is just work and part of my life =)

Five craziest things you did on your board?

God ... why did you remind me of this? I flew over a not small gap claws into a cross railing. TWS called it the most terrible crash they have seen ... That was definitely enough for me and it completely covers remaining four crazy things.

Thing you would never do to your board?

At first I thought that I would never throw my board into the trash. But I also did it. I think I did everything with a board =) Including sleeping with it or having a shower with it.

Three most used words while riding?

Ebaaat’!! (Russian swear word It is a sign of both pleasure and fear. Depends on the tone and situation.)
Ohueeeet’!! (Russian swear word It is a sign of both pleasure and fear. Depends on the tone and situation.)
Eeeeeeee!!!! (just a cry of joy)

Your biggest crash?

We have already talked about it. Do you really want to see this? OK..
