Florian Dumps

Growing up at the southest village of germany in Oberstdorf he stood the first time on skis at the early age of three. In his youth he was a successful ski racer. After he finished his career he took part at several skier cross word cups until 2007. But his real passion was freeskiing and with the rise of the first bigger terrain parks in germany he was more on his home mountain Fellhorn to ride there than take part on regular training.  He decided to focus on riding Freeski and so the first smaller successes came with.

After some bad injuries and a crucriate rupture he left the parks behind and went over to Big Mountain skiing. The creativity and the freedom of riding was always the inspiration he searched all the years for. Now he is taking part at several Big Mountain contest and also some filming with his friends if there is any free time during his studies at Innsbruck/Austria.
