Hey Guys, I´m Patrick from Alpine Ice Freestyle and this is my official Website. It’s great that you found your way here so let me tell you something about Alpine Ice Freestyle.
I was born in 1993 in Berchtesgaden. Currently, I work in a Hotel and I am also a professional Skiing Instructor during the Winter.
During the summer, I play Football as a Goalkeper in one of the highest leagues of the County and currently rank number one Goalkeeper for my team.
Do I do Inline Skating? No! It’s just not my thing. I use all my energy in the summer for football and if I have some time left, I enjoy Splash- and Cliff-diving
Skating for me is a winter sport and because of football, I normally have less than two and a half months per season to fully concentrate on it.
My first time on ice skates was in 1996. I was 2 Years old. I tried Hockey but found that it was not my sport.
So what about Figure-skating? Not at all. Don;t get me wrong. I am not knocking it – It’s just not for me. I love the freedom of ice-skating and what can be done on the ice as a Freestyler.
About Freestyle Ice-skating:
I have always been more than an average skater.
In 2010, I was searching for something different on the ice. Something else that the existing ice sports did not have.
I started to experiment and developed my first freestyle tricks. It then started to grow.
I know that freestyle already existed during this time but in those days, I had never heard about it.
In the early summer of 2011, I watched ‘Freestyle Ice Skating’ by Nagyerdei Korisok for the first time. What he did was very similar to what I tried on the ice. From this day I knew that I was Freestyle Ice Skater.
I kept improving my style and setup my YouTube Channel in December 2013 together with my friend Benedikt.
We had a great time as Frestyle Ice Skater and creating videos until 2015.
Our lives unfortunately moved in different directions. However, I kept the YouTube Channel but had no time for it due to sadly losing my father in late 2015. This created personal issues which stopped me for a while.
In 2016, I renamed my Brand to IceFreestyle39, but that was just for one Season. In Summer 2017, a new Patriotic idea for a name came to mind.
As I was born and live in the Alps which is my home town, I decided to change my brand name to ‘Alpine Ice Freestyle’. I started an Instagram Channel, travelled across Europe and had a great time – but something was missing.
So, in summer 2018, I decided to start making videos again – now completely on my own.
In October 2018, I uploaded my first solo Project ‘My Story’ and from then on creates and uploaded regularly.
My passion is not just Freestyle Ice-skating but also making videos for my YouTube channel.
Many Freestyle Ice Skaters are making videos but there was never a real YouTuber in this sport.
It is important for me that as a YouTuber, I upload at least weekly, mostly even more often and during the whole year. A YouTuber should display every aspect and every genre of videos possible on their channel – Not just creating video and tutorials. I decided that I want to be the first real Freestyle Ice Skating YouTuber, and that’s exactly what I did.
So far I am on a good schedule with uploading twice a week during the main season and regularly during the summer.
I have brought some new ideas into the world of Fresstyle Ice Skating on YouTube asides from standard movies, vlogs and tutorials. Although it’s a huge amount of work and occupies most of my free time and money, I love what I do and it´s absolutely worth everything it costs.
This is my passion, my dream, my life-goal, and even if I don’t make it as big as I hope, at least I am having a good time.
Feel free to follow my story on my YouTube channel and Instagram page. Your support is greatly appreciated and let’s how far it will go.
