Another internationally recognized rider that emanated out of the Swiss Engadine scene, Dani Sappa quietly turned heads through out his snowboarding career. Not surprising you might say, considering his riding partners including, Michi Albin, rode more for the love of snowboarding, friends and being in the mountains, than the hype surrounding a maturing snowboarding industry. Happy is a man who can make his hobby his job, and it had to be said Dani was one of the happiest people you would ever meet. Dani’s riding style is reflected in his personality. Solid, no fuss, individual and understated. He had the ability to make the difficult look seemingly effortless. At the height of his career, overnight, Dani suffered what could have been a life threatening blood clot on his knee. Emergency surgery saved both his life and his leg, in effect also changing his personal focus. Following rehabilatation, Dani finished his professional snowboarding career, finishing a degree in computer animation and is now a state of the art motion graphic designer.
