Team Profiles - The Homies - TonTon Holland and Jules Reymond

Hailing out of the Romandie in Southern Switzerland, The Homies bring in a French HipHop vibe with the experience and style of a very good, aged, vintage port, and the slick skills of a plate oysters, lemon and olive oil. TonTon Holland, a true gentleman of the sport, has been to more Ästhetiker events than most Ästhetiker's themselves, and Jules Reymond boasts some of the best Absinthe Film video Parts they have had....   

 

Team Homies - TonTon Holland and Jules Reymond

One of the most recognized crews across Europe, The Homies have been putting it together and putting it on the ground for years now, producing a sublime French Connection across the Southern Swiss Alps and well into France.

If there was any proof that age is simply in the head, TonTon, for shits and giggles, landed all four 10′s in a relaxed training run recently at home. He told us by phone, “Dammit, I’m going to be the first rider to do a switch b/s 10 at the age of 40!”… Knowing TonTon’s determination and love of snowboarding, we can only wonder if he will go 12! Will he do it here? We don't know. We do know that good snow in the Southern Alps means he's been in training...

Teaming up with the cheeky dark horse of Jules Reymond, they have a spark in their forward line not many teams will boast. Absent from the contest scene for a couple of years while on filming duties with Absinthe, Jules’s command of the unexpected, his propensity to surprise, and his ability to pull off the impossible – all the while with an infectious grin broadly across his face – regularly leaves the defense bamboozled with his Ronaldo like footwork and subtle skills. There is no doubt with Jules Reymond, you are going to learn to expect the unexpected with daring and bravado… and a polite shake of the hand. Jules’s personality is infectious, which is translated into his riding style. Smoke and mirrors, tastefully counterpointed the stomp and thump… He would scare most people if he just could get that smile off his face!

Team Profile - theDjudes - Chris Kröll and Mario Wanger

Djudes by name, Djudes by nature, and these Djudes are going to be on top of their game having been the guinea pigs on the first night test session in the freshly finished contest line in the Nightpark, Hinterglemm. A little extra training - too right - that's what we mean by experience.   


theDjudes - Chris Kröll and Mario Wanger

Hailing out of the Zillertal, Austria, and one of the first Winter MÄSH Teams that we want to present to you is probably one of the hottest teams coming to the event. With the combination of a mountain of contest experience combined with killer video parts between them, they could be the smart man's bet for your money on them winning this years first issue of the Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock.

Founding members of The Djudes crew, Chris 'CK' Kröll and Mario Wanger are both riding for G-Shock are some of the best all-round snowboarders out there on the circus. Both guys are amazing skaters and you can see the skate influence in there riding styles. While CK loves to jump every kicker to the K-Point Mario´s spin skills are enviable.  Both boys don´t care to much about riding regular contests although CK has a long, impressive,  contest history. Most of their riding time they spent together in the backcountry filming for theDJUDES Project with their private filmer, Julian Pintarelli.  Mario describes CK as the crazy dude always up for the party and the biggest air. CK says that he loves to ride with Mario due to his endless motivation and his pure love and termination to what he is doing. The team format always seems to get the best out of both of them...

Support Act: Average

Aufgewachsen zwischen Linz und Marseille führte zu einem musikalischen Background zwischen Texta und Soprano. Letzteren durfte er 2010 auf Tour begleiten und nutzte die Gelegenheit einen guten Draht aufzubauen und ein Soprano Feature fürs Texta Album "Grotesk" einzufädeln. Zum Dank ist er ebenfalls auf diesem Titeltrack "Grotesk" mit einem Part vertreten.   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zS2vinfMbOw)

 

Überhaupt nahmen die Linzer "Ziehväter" Huckey und Flip (beide von Texta) Average schon in den frühen Teenager Jahren unter ihre Fittiche. Die Resultate daraus waren mehrere Appearances auf Texta Alben, eine EP mit Huckey und ein kleine Geschichtsstunde mit Flip: die "Tuesday Classics"  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpXiSwNKX6Y)

 

Dem Fußball Club seines Herzens Olympic Marseille folgt er durch halb Europa und hat ihnen die Hymne "OM"gewidmet:   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVgitTRMYC0)

Doch damit nicht genug mit Fußball. Der begeisterte Fifa Zocker - "…Ich kauf´mehr Controller als Spiele, denn seit 1998 bist du meine große Liebe…" - dropt den Song "Wenns ein Mädchen wird". Mit dabei im Video ist Fussballer Andreas Ivanschitz, ebenfalls ein Fifa Nerd. Das überraschend positive Feeback führte unter anderem zu einer Einladung der Firma EA-Sports für eine Performance bei der Fifa 13- Releaseparty in München.

Mitten in der österreichischen Mundart und Slangsta Welle und entgegen allen befreundeten Artists aus dem Umfeld, schreibt er seine Texte auf hochdeutsch. Nicht aus konzeptionellen Gründen oder wegen "dem größeren Markt", sondern weil es natürlich kommt und auch deutscher Hip Hop für ihn ein großer Einfluß war und ist.

Team Profile - Team MUCI - Adrian Krainer and Michael Macho

Their are no friends on a powder day, so the saying goes, and friendships are guaranteed to be strained as Team MUCI steps up to the plate at this year's Winter MÄSH. Regular riding partners with Team YCA - Team MUCI may just have that inside scoop

Team MUCI - Adrian Krainer & Michael Macho

It´s hard to describe the riding styles of Adrian and Michi but one thing we know - not many teams will have the firepower to beat these two heavy hitters. Captain Adrian Krainer who is from the south of Austria, just showed his talent with a 8th place at the World Championship in slopestyle. He has really strong stomping legs, is fearless and has a massive bag of tricks.

Team mate, Michael Macho, hails from Tirol and he can ride it all. Pipe, Rails, Big Jumps - you name it – the party Hulk kills it. Let´s see if the boys bring down their runs. If they do so it will be hard to beat them.
