Andreas Fransson (Ski Editor) – Andreas is a professional skier from the very north of Sweden. He has been living most of the last six years in Chamonix, but travels extensively to find new lines to ski. He have skied first descents in Scandinavia, Chamonix, Alaska and South America but actually prefers tracked powder more than anything.
Dan Milner (MTB Editor) – Since first slinging his leg over a mountain bike in ‘85, this British professional photographer has been steering his MTB in any direction that will yield adventure. His long time involvement in the bike industry means he’s witnessed its twisting evolution and he’s ridden with the legends. While scooping up awards for his photography, Dan splits his time between the UK, Europe and various remote airports, bus terminals and taxi stands en route to session epic singletrack, anywhere from Nepal to Argentina to England’s Lake District. He’s not shy of a few hill climbs to get the goods either.
Dave Mailman (Surf Editor) – Dave was born and raised in the heart of the boardsports industry, Newport Beach, California, USA and is currently residing in Hossegor, France. He was a co-founder of Surf Europe Magazine, Marketing Director for Quiksilver Europe, President of the ASP Europe from 2007-2010 and has been a freelance event commentator and journalist in surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding and other action sports since 2003.

James discovered freeride competitions relatively late in his career and has spent the last two winters on the Freeride World Tour, one of the highlights of which included a podium appearance at the Verbier Extreme at the tender age of 40. Travel and discovery continue to be his source of snowboarding motivation.
