My name is Jonas Boesiger and I’m 21 years old. I grew up in a small Swiss town called Rickenbach. At the age of seven I discovered my greatest passion: Snowboarding! During winter I used to spend every bit of my free time on the snow. Because of that I was also able to make new friends.
Thankfully, I was allowed to join the talent class reducing the conflict of interest between school and sport. Later on I started classes at the sports high school in Engelberg (national performance centre, www.sportmittelschule.ch). Studying there for five years allowed me to increase the number of trainings without neglecting school. I graduated from high school in 2015 and right now I am all about living my passion.
When I am not snowboarding I spend time skate-, wake- or surfboarding. I also like to trampoline jump, fish, be outside and meet my friends.
Due to the increasing level of my snowboarding skills I had to intensify my preseason training. I go to the gym at least 5 times a week and train strength as well as coordination. It is the key to a successful season without injuries. The intensified training also allows me to perform more complex tricks and flights and I am therefore coming closer to my dream of the perfect run.
Since the repertoire of tricks is only limited by the laws of gravity it will always be a motivation to push further. I will probably never be able to sum up my passion for snowboarding in words.
This patronizing organization was called into life so that Jonas could intensify his training sessions and achieve his athletic goals. Support one of the Swiss rising stars in snowbarding and accompany him on his journey to the Olympic Wintergames in Pyeongchang 2018. Jonas has the motivation, will and talent – but without additional support he is hardly going to reach his goals. Therefore we need you and your membership.
