Halldor Helgason, the Viking wonder from frozen places north of pretty much everywhere, is a corner-stone member of the hard-as-nails crew known as the VonZipper
#ElNinos. You may have heard of them. This dude is well known for keeping his approach "suuuuuper casual" and somehow makes getting loose look tight. We are lucky enough to count him amongst our ranks and as such got him to answer a few questions about his whereabouts following the stay at the #VZWildLifeLodge, what life is like back on a snowboard following his injury, and how that mustache continues to get more powerful. VonZipper: Hey Halldor!! How are you bud? Where are you at the moment? Halldor: I'm all good, thankyouthankyou, I just arrived to Innsbruck/Austria. VZ: That sounds fun. Why are you heading to Austria? H: I'm about to go snowboarding for the first time since my injury!, It's been almost 7 months now since I went riding so I couldn’t be more pumped!. VZ: Right On! So you tweaked your ankle pretty good at SuperPark at the end of last season. You all healed up? Hows she feeling? H: I sure did, I actually broke my first bone in my body and I was pretty happy about it at first because I thought bones would just heal up after 1 to 3 months max and then you would be all good, but I of course had to break the worst bone in the damn ankle called the Talus, the recovery time is 6 months, now it's been almost 7 months and it still doesn’t feel to good to be honest, so I will have to take it easy for a while longer I think and just cruise. VZ: What did you do all summer to keep yourself from going crazy since you couldn’t skate? H: I took rehab seriously for the first time ever, worked with Lobster, Switchback, atrip and 7913 Belts, looked at the snow and skate sites over and over again, partied and chilled with my girl and friends. VZ: Ok so let's get down to the nitty gritty. You came out to the WildLife Lodge when you had a little free time between film trips for your project Dayuum! When you got to the house you kinda mentioned that you were on chill mode because it was your down time between heavy filming missions. I think the shredding was pretty fun and casual but how did your liver feel when you left the Lodge because I think we were getting pretty savage with the nightlife around then? H: Haha yes we for sure did some heavy liver gymming while I was there, it was a great time hanging with the VonZipper crew just like always, you guys don't take anything too serious and that's exactly what I like! VZ: Stock question… Are the El Ninos a club, Family or a Gang? H: It's a badass religion I would say. VZ: What's your Plan for the winter? H: Get my ankle back in business as soon as possible, snowboard as much as I can, film with Transworld and have a good time. VZ: Alright That about wraps it up for us. Have fun in Germany El Gringo! H: Thank you VonZipper and please keep on keeping it real! VZ: Peace
