Snowboard Instructor

Andrin Regli

Snowboard lover since I was "standing sideways" for the first time about 25 years ago (ok, the first days were hard sometimes...). Started judging in 2012 and still trying to improve my skills on the board and at the steno sheet. Loving the variety and creativity on snow.

Snowboard Judges Coordinator

Ola Sundekvist

Happy to be a part of building this education platform. As Judges Coordinator, this team that worked with education have done great work during the summer. Thanks to all of them. For me, been acting as a judge since beginning. With Snowboard, Freestyle Skiing and Freeski. Coordinating judges to events since 1998 and hopefully, with good results.
