Jiri Hruza: “It´s been 3 years since I met Alfons García. We soon got along as our philosophy of life is quite similar and splitboarding made us follow the same paths.
The title of the video expresses exactly what we had, a fake winter, that brought far more snow in March than in January. Could I have made it better? With only 10 days of recordings, I did my best . Of course it helped a lot Alfons´ exceptional riding that always gave great video footage. We only had a few days of good snow to make of our filming a full vídeo report and at the beginning it did not sound easy but besides all the problems I could bring it out and now be proud to say that it received the PiriActivity award at the last edition of Skimetraje Film Festival.
The video is chaotic, just like Alfons´life itself, a unique and versatile rider, always surrounded by buddies and fighting everyday with the Val d´Aran. He lives for snowboarding but splitboarding got him hooked and he must live with it.
A nice madness, this is how I would describe my season with Alfons García. ”
Thanks to everybody for participating in Fake Winter and to Javi Barro from Heliboarding Val d’Aran for the heli-split ride.
