#StayHome with Steve Gruber

2020-03-24 | Sara

Our rider Steve Gruber started his snowboarding path when I was around two years old (1992) and he is still ripping hard! His approach to life and snowboarding defines him as a person who fits perfectly with the HF family. Nowadays, we are going through tough times, most of us are stuck at home and to prevent boredom people do many things. Some are like Steve - sleeping longer as usually, or stretch and train to stay in good condition. But let's see what other life hacks and tips have Steve for us for these lockdown days.


S: Hi Steve, I hope you are doing fine. Let's begin with how the situation in Austria looks like right now?

Steve: I think the situation here is simple, we are locked down in Tirol/Austria, actually Tirol is in quarantine until 13.4., so we have to stay in our homes and cannot even go to the next village. Not easy right now, but I will make the best out of this. 


S: How does your day look like during the insolation?

Steve: Well, I sleep very long nowadays ;-) Then see what the news says and have a brunch. Try to go for a run to get some fresh air, and see what the day brings.

S: What do you do at home to win over boredom?

Steve: Doing interviews ;-) But also some Instagram challenges, cleaning up, washing my hands haha, chill, go for little hikes but close to home to keep everyone safe, do some easy workouts, stretch, flying my mini drone in the flat and I started reading again. I like to listen to FM4 and BBC6 radio stations when I am cleaning or doing something on the computer, but it's always good to check out Method mag; Pleasure, Prime snowboarding, Snowboarder magwebsites for some shred action, Magic Seaweed, Korduroy for surfing and Thrasher to keep me updated in skateboarding.


S: You mentioned Instagram Challenges, have you tried Zolo's #mentalhealthchallenge at home?

Steve: Oh yeah, it was quite a mission, it was hard to take my arms off the ground, the first couple times. Really good one. I encourage everyone to try it at home, it a great and funny way of how to survive a day haha.


S: Any good reads for these days?

Steve: I would recommend the new book Curator II, not only because of my interview but also because all the articles, interviews and photos are great.



S: The new Curator is sick! Taz did an awesome job again. But now, let's give our fans some interesting tips to survive the quarantine. First one: Weird TV series you loved as a kid?
