IVIKA JÜRGENSON

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU AND WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?
I’m Ivika Jürgenson, I like snowboarding and vegan Ben & Jerry’s.

WHICH FOOT DO YOU STRAP IN FIRST?
I'm goofy.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SNOWBOARD MEMORY? IT CAN BE ANYTHING; FIRST STREET RAIL, BEST TRIP WITH THE HOMIES, WATCHING A SESSION GO DOWN...
It’s from when I first visited Big Bear. It was my first snowboarding experience outside Northern Europe. I mean I had never seen anything like it; sunny and warm weather every day, snowboarding in a long sleeve, park runs as long as all the slopes of every ski resort in Estonia added together (possibly even longer to be honest). Features I’d only seen from the videos, lots of friendly and likeminded people. For me this was a mind-blowing experience. I would love to visit Bear again someday!

WOULD YOU RATHER: HAND-DIG A QUARTER PIPE, BUILD A LOG JIB OR SHAPE A BANKED SLALOM COURSE?
I already do so much digging during the wintertime while filming I think I’d just build a log jib and have fun jibbing with my friends.

IN YOUR OPINION, WHOSE STYLE HAS INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST AND HOW?
I think there hasn’t just been one person who influenced me the most, I think it’s the combination of people I normally snowboard with. I spend the most of my winter snowboarding and filming with the guys from Postland. They have definitely had a big influence on my snowboarding and the video parts that I’ve filmed.



IF YOU COULD GO BACK TO ANY SESSION, ANY FEATURE, ANY DAY ON SNOW AND JUST TELEPORT THERE TO SHRED, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
Since we had to skip spring snowboarding this year and that’s my favorite time to snowboard, I’d go back to any spring session. The first one to come to my mind is Mammoth. A couple of years in a row I used to finish up my seasons with some late spring slush and sunny snowboarding at Mammoth. It feels extra nice when you’ve spent the whole season filming in cold conditions and then you get to wrap it up with some fun sunny park riding. Unfortunately, I’ve had to skip two springs now so I’d for sure teleport myself to a sunny spring session!

FAVORITE UNEXPECTED PIECE OF GEAR YOU RUN DAILY?
Gotta use my boot dryers!
