Artec Welcomes Hans Ahlund


Begunje, Slovenia – January 12, 2011. Artec Snowboards is pleased to

announce the addition of Swedish super ripper Hans Ahlund to our Pro

Team.  Hans joins recent additions Lisa Filzmoser (Austria) and Kalle

Ohlson (Norway) as part of Artecs development from a progressive

freestyle project to a full blown global force.  As one of the

“Pirates” Hans has an exception part in this seasons “Hooked” by

Pirate movie productions to add to his impressive appearances in

previous Pirate releases and too many magazine to mention.  Hans

brings exceptional freestyle skills, super sweet steez, and a strong

Euro following to the Artec program.

“Hans is on point right now and fits perfectly into what we are doing

with Artec. This team is getting deep and I love the diversity of our

program. We are starting to have all these rippers from all over, a

collection of misfits and rejects that are simply too f-ing good to

ignore. And what they all have in common is that they love to

snowboard, and they believe in what we are doing with Artec. I love

this crew.  Welcome to the team Hans.”

Blaise Rosenthal, Artec Creative Director

“I’m really hyped to be a part of the Artec program!   I’ve been

riding the boards while I’ve been filming for the last couple of

weeks in Sweden for the new Pirate flick and the boards feel great!”

Hans Ahlund

”This kid isn’t just a great rider, he’s also a great guy. Hans is a

perfect fit for our team. He not only has exceptional skills on a

snowboard but he also has a super positive personality and lots of

drive to get the job done.”

Dragan Gojkovic, Artec Marketing Manager
