Ben Berger

Age: 29

Location: Grenoble, France

Favorite Riding Spot: Urban hills with lots of features to hit are my favorite, but I also love pure downhill in the alps.

How did you get started? I met Jon Ehm (he works now at the Freebord Pro Shop France) in '08 and he taught me and my friends how to ride. Then I went to a few rides and events, to watch, drive, and ride boards that Arnaud and Jon lent to me, before buying my own board. My first "real" ride with CHoE was for the Trieves video in 2010.

How long have you been riding? 4 years

Best Freebord memory: Trip for the 2010 Rider Awards, and all the trips with my friends from the CHoE crew !

Board settings: Deck : 83 midwide. Trucks : not too tight. Rocker : middle. Stance : max width with max duck angles.
