Maarten van Komen, a dutch professional snowboarder since 20o8. In the first years of his career he worked as a snowboard instructor all over Austria. Since the beginning of 2015 he started his professional freeride career. He has already reached to the final of the Dutch Freeride Championships. 

Why Maarten chose for professional freeriding? ‘’Being far away from chairlifts and crowded slopes and enjoying the untouched white canvas with buddies is simply the best feeling in the world. This is what really makes me happy and what I want to do for a long time from now on.’ The last couple of years Maarten was all over the world with trips to Japan, Mongolia and the European Alps.
