Wolfgang Nyvelt has carved out a space for himself in snowboarding that can’t be replicated. His family home in the Zillertal Valley in Austria is a testament to years of hard work and legendary video parts. It’s also a home base for chasing down storms across The Alps and continuing the legacy of phenomenal airs, lines, and some of the finest turns, tracks and carves in the history of our sport.

Wolle's take on our sport has brought him to crafting his own boards, creating a new way to ride entirely. The binding-less ASMO boards built by Wolfgang and his crew are inspired by surfing and come in shapes that allow for freedom and spontaneity in any terrain. Watching Wolfgang ride these boards is a true expression of his style.

The following images are a linear look at Wolfgang and his board.

“I think it’s kind of like a time travel too… From when you shape the boards until when you ride it…”

I remember being up in Alaska with him and watching him ride a couple big lines with his Asmo - I was pretty blown away with that… Austrian Legend, that guys is a true mountaineer. - Travis Rice

“I started snowboarding when I was 15… when we started we dug the first pipes by hand, there were no magazines, there were no parks, it was always pretty simple to go freeride, to go hit jumps.”
