Rider v Rider Interview: Austen Sweetin v. Andreas Wiig
How many people's arms have you broken arm wrestling?
Do you think you could beat me in arm wrestling?
Most likely, but I have a torn biceps so you might have a small chance at beating me.
Have you ever ridden a 143cm snowboard (my rail board)?
I don't think I have. Maybe when I was a kid. I thought a 143 was your pow board?
Tell me about Shrimping, is that your go to cliff jump trick?
Shrimping is almost like a dive, but you're laying out horizontal in the air. Right before you hit the water and people think you are going to bellyflop you fold together like a shrimp. Definitely my go to trick. I know you were impressed when you first saw it.
Whats your perfect day in the backcountry like?
I would be a day of heli boarding up in Alaska just doing free runs all day long. Nothing beats that.
Your really good at tobboggan boarding have you ever thought of hitting a jump on one?
My next videopart is all going to be tobboggan jumping doing various flips and corks.
Have you ever been in a music video?
Yes, I was in my girlfriend’s music video some years ago. But the filmers had no clue about how to film snowboarding.
