Maxime Genoud is without a doubt one of the most exciting prospects in our sport. The 20 year old from Lausanne, Switzerland has earned a very strong name for himself, winning several contests including the infamous Winterclash and Mind The Gap contest in the Netherlands and placing at the FISE slopestyle course in France earlier this year.

His efforts havent gone unnoticed and he has managed to pick himself up a boot sponsorship with one of the biggest skate manufactures on the planet  Rollerblade along with liner company JUG and protective clothing manufacture Urban Kreation both adding him to their roaster. We caught up with the Swiss powerhouse to see what he has been rocking under his feet.

Why did I choose this setup:
