Tobi, when did you start your biking career?
I started biking, espacially freeride dirtjump, when is was around 10. Since then i got hooked. So 19 years now and i hope there are many more to come.
Which is your favourite spot / training location?
Traning location: Bikepark Osternohe, got my on spot on top of the hill.
Favorite Spot: There is no favorite spot so far. I just love to travel and explore diffrent and new paygrounds.
Which is your favourite bike/board?
I have been riding for Rose Bikes since almost 5 years and i love my custom Dirtjump Hardtail called ‘The Bruce’ which is super rad! And my enduro bike because i can ride it wherever i want to. This one is an all time weapon and insane fun. My surfboard is a custom shape from Barabuda Surfboards in Vale da Telha Portugal. Its a 5’8′ and pretty simular to a Hypto Krypto from Hayden Shapes.
Who or what inspires you? What is your passion in life?
I guess there is no one who’s inspiring me in person directly but respectively everyone who has achieved a living out of his passion is inspiring in his own way.
Which is the best city on earth and why?
Wherever i can find the ocean and the mountains as close to each other as possible for biking, skiing and surfing.
Do you follow a special way of life? (e.g. Food, Training, Motivation, Way of thinking…?
I just live for what i love and keep my dream going. I think the most important thing in life is to follow for what you feeling for, keep pushing yourself, beeing authentic and make the best out of it.
One quote about SWOX. How did you get to know the company??
I got known about Swox during my time in Portugal from January to mid of April 2019 by a good friend. He told me Max and Laura are around and wants to see what we’ve build past months. So we went for surfing and enyoyed time togehther. I got stoked from the very first time i’ve used swox. And finally im not a roasted tomato anymore and i can stay in the water or outside as long as i want without burning my self till i peel like an cooked potatoe. haha!
