For Immediate Release... LF HQ October 2008
Just in time for the 2008/2009 snow season, Liquid Force is stoked to announce the latest addition to the Liquid Force International Team- Petter Johnsen
If you are familiar with snow kiteboarding, then Petter Johnsen doesn't need any introduction as he has made quite a name for himself in a short time as one of the top snowkiters in the world. If you are new to snow kiteboarding or have seen a bit, but haven't paid much attention, let us introduce you.
Hailing from Tønsberg Norway, this 21 year old charger has quickly made a name for himself applying his skate/snowboard style to a kite and snowboard on the cold platue of Hardangervidda at Haugastøl in Norway. While this may seem like the most out of the way place on earth to some.. we have all been fortunate to be able to see what happens there through the work of Morten Gjerstad of www.snowkitefilm.com.
Morten's films Entropy and Something Stronger have not only exposed the top young riders of Norway to the world, but have set the bar and defined the level of snowkite style for worldwide. Making his debut in the popular Entropy- Petter Johnsen quickly wowed the world with his skill and STYLE!
Check out Petter's Riding in this Trailer for te upcoming production DIMENSIONS (available Nov 08- preorder now!)
Snowkiters will be watching Petter all year as the snowkitefilm.com Film Dimensions Premiers at all of the major snowkite events worldwide this year.
Being a rider driven company, bringing on Petter not only shows LF seeks out the most stylish and progressive riders but is a wider display of Liquid Force's commitment to the development and progression of kiteboarding on snow. Petter will lead the charge as the snow rider on the Liquid Force International Team and will work to share the stoke for snowkiteboarding as well as the STYLE with which he rides.
When you see Petter ride you instantly notice his style and smoothness. He defines style within the snow category of the sport and blends classic skateboarding moves with modern day snowboarding and puts it all together with a kite and all of the modern competition freestyle kiteboarding moves everyone else is doing. It's just exciting to watch!
Watch for Petter's riding in the upcoming Snowkitefilms release Dimensions and around the world as Petter gears up with his new LF HiFi and Session Kites for another sick winter of snow kiteboarding!!
