‟ When I got the prototype four years ago, the first thing I was curious about was the materials, shape, riding properties, processing, innovation and design. All of these attributes are incredibly balanced and go way beyond current world brands ... I like what approach and outcome such a young company offers. They constantly innovate and develop in a positive direction. They especially try to satisfy all athletes and create products for extreme conditions, on which I can always rely on. During these moments I experience unrepeatable minutes full of adrenaline intoxication ... ‟

Michal studied at the Institute of High Mountain Biology – Land protection and utilization. He has been a ski instructor for 15 years and as local Jasná freerider he knows all the hidden corners of the mountains. There's no specific mountain he prefers as long as it's high and can hold enough amount of snow to be skied. He is one of the first friends of Forest. He's also a skillful woodcarver, making his own handmade ski poles.
