08 Mar A day with Fidel Alonso
Fidel Alonso is one of the most acclaimed Spanish professional snowboarders. He has always been linked to sports since he was a young. While he was still a young kid, he turned his biggest passion, futsal, into his profession. He played in the highest category as well as in international tournaments. Once he felt he was done with futsal, he quit being a professional player to try snowboarding, a sport he discovered on 1998 on a school trip that would change him forever. After practising and competing in skateboard for many years, it was just a matter of time he would try snowboard. Right after trying in for the first time, he already had his first sponsors, that would help him to gain recognition and popularity in the best sport events. He won his first snowboard trophy in the first competition he took part in 2003, and he has been related to the same sport ever since. It was in 2007, whilst doing a report in the Canadian Rockies that he would do something only a few have had a chance to experience before. He had the opportunity to do a “first descent” which as the name suggest it’s the first time a person rides down an untouched mountain and it is how a new mountain slope is born.
These days Fidel Alonso is focused working towards his sponsors image creating featured campaigns both in Spain and abroad.
