Kaya Turski, arguably the greatest female slopestyle skier on earth will be starting the 2012-2013 season on HEAD. After spending the summer testing HEAD products in New Zealand, the Slopestyle master gave her stamp of approval on the product and has inked a partnership with HEAD. After working semi freelance last season, Kaya has searched for the right connection and found comfort in the new Freeride program developing at HEAD.
With seven X-Games medals and many additional credits to her name, Kaya is looking to continue her success as well as train hard to progress the sport not only for Women, but to bring a unique fan base to the sport as well. Furthermore, with Slopestyle as the newest addition to the Olympic schedule for 2014, Kaya is poised for action but most of all excited about the 2012-2013 season on the HEAD Team.
Kaya is joining a noteworthy yet growing team at HEAD which includes but is not limited to Simon Dumont, Jon Olsson, Jesper Tjader, Anders Backe, James Heim, Crystal Wright, Jochen Mesle, and recently added Mikkel Jørandstaad and Christian Allen.
As you can imagine HEAD team manager Tyson Bolduc is also super stoked about this:
“Kaya is a competitor with a desire to push herself and enjoy life at the same time. After seeing her ski at the X-Games in Tignes, France in 2012, we have been talking about getting her on the program ever since. She carries herself with a silent humility and has her goals set on not only her personal success but the success and future of the sport in general. We are happy to add her to the roster of incredible athletes as she will be fun to work with and we are happy to be standing beside her and supporting her efforts in bringing skiing up to her level.”
Of course the downdays team wishes Kaya all the best for the upcoming season. For further information about her check:
