Gerry Haag

Freeriding Entrepreneur - Letsgosurfing

With a Ph.D. in biomechanics in his pocket and lots of salmon experience from being a harbor master in British Columbia Gerry ventured on to play significant roles in building a range of Internet businesses since the late 1990s. These include amazon, gourmondo, lovefilm, badoo, privax, and barefootliving. His father, a passionate skier and state-certified ski instructor, put Gerry on skis at the age of 1 on Crystal Mountain, USA. Ever since then Gerry has been addicted to snow, first as a competitive ski racer and then easing into the beautiful flow of freeriding. He worked for many years as a ski instructor across Europe and as a freeride guide in Whistler, Canada. Since then he has explored many slopes around the globe, preferably off the beaten track.
