    Evolution of KORE

    From time to time you may find yourself with the back against the wall. Doubts building up, but at the same time a panting flame is lit. Like the great poet Eminem once said, “Success is my only m********n' option, failure's not.” And with a similar credo the team within HEAD Ski division went to work. The task ahead was not a small one though. And based on previous attempts a fresh start was clearly the only option.

    Frame Of Mind with Sam Kuch

    Time is indeed relative, Einstein proved it if nothing else, but how much can our experience of time differ? Sheila Street, mother of Sam Kuch, states that her son can slow time down. How that works, we lack the brains to grasp, even more to explain. It is however clear to us that watching Sam Kuch ski is a sacred experience. The impossible and the completely natural intertwined. The realisation that some things are just meant to happen, that some people are meant to do exactly what they’re doing at that given moment. You can envy them or just surrender, lean back and enjoy the ride.
