The frustration of the high prices for a Goggle that would last for a season was the birth of Fresh Goggles
After graduating from high school I moved tot he Alps to become a ski-instructor. After years of instructing I am currently focusing on off-piste skiing with close friends who share my passion for freeriding.
After working as an instructor for years and spending a fortune on ski goggles every year, I concluded that there was no quality on the market for a reasonable price. Therefore I started Fresh Goggles as a result of my passion for skiing and entrepreneurship. Fresh is a young and dynamic company focusing on delivering the best quality for fair and reasonable prices. In this way I am able to combine my passion with my work. That makes being in the snow for Fresh Goggles even more precious.

My name is Freek bardoel, and I have always extremely loved skiing.
I was born and raised in Nijmegen, Holland, but always longing for the mountains and snow. When I turned 17 I took the Anwärter course and became a ski-instructor. Since 2015 I am also narrowly involved with Fresh Goggles as a test skier. I also passed the Landes 1 and Alpinkurs and live in Innsbruck, Austria, to be close to the mountains and the snow.
Next to being an instructor I also freeride a lot with close friends. Every turn in fresh powder gives me an indescribable feeling of joy and happiness. To be able to share this with close friends while being on a discovery tour through the unique white mountain ranges gives me the biggest kick possible. My goal for 2017 is to pass the Landes 2 course. For the long term my dream is to qualify for the Free Ride World Tour.
|Favorite Spots:||Stubaier Gletscher, Hintertux, Axamer Lizum|
|Pursuits:||Instructor, Parc, Freeriding|
Since 2008 Maarten worked as a professional snowboarder.
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.

My name is Adrian Scheider, 21 years old out of Söll, Tirol, Austria.
Ever since I have started skiing I always looked up to the guys in the park and it was not long until I made my first steps into freestyle skiing as well. The last years I competed in over 20 contests with 3 wins, four times 2nd place and two times 3rd place.
Most of my skiing takes place in Tirol, Austria, because we have over 50 ski areas that are close by. My favorite parks in around my hometown is the Biarder Playground in Westendorf because it has many creative features and amazing kickers. In the fall and spring I love going to the Stubai Zoo at the Stubaier Glacier and the funpark at the Hintertuxer Glacier. Great areas with almost always amazing snow conditions.
I am skiing with the Fresh Goggle Xplore because the Goggle delivers amazing vision on Bluebird days.
