2014 has been a good one. New products got released, people traveled from all over the world to visit some of the great events out there, awesome videos and edits came out and the vibe has been great in general. But of course, everyone’s got their personal favorites and we wanted to know how 2014 looked like for some of our favorite pro riders.

At first, Eugen Enin wasn’t sure if he really was the right one for a 2014 feature. He felt like he didn’t travel enough and that there are other people that would have to say more in such a feature. That tells a lot about Eugen’s humble personality, because the facts are speaking another truth. 2014 was one of the most important years for his blading career. Wherever he showed up, people were talking about him afterwards and every edit he put out got shared by some of the most respected personalities in blading – even the small crew edits he produced. Eugen’s name is getting bigger and bigger and the best is yet to come. Let’s take a look on his 2014 while we wait for another high-tech edit of him.

Any specific moment or experience that stood out in 2014?
Getting to know during the tour that I passed all my exams. Landing the Bio 540 for my Kizer profile… It was the last trick we filmed on my last day in Bayreuth just before I left for Summerclash. I destroyed my back right before the trick during my warmup… Joao, Sorry for your energy drink! But I still managed to lace it. And Landing the Top Soul 3 Soul 180 mute over the fence… I took a shit load of bails and I fell the drop down. But I think it is one of the best tricks I’ve ever done.

What was your worst moment in 2014?
Day one in Barcelona because then I did realize that my ankle is not fit enough for some action… Street day in Cologne when I destroyed my tendons and ligaments.

Is there such thing as the best day in 2014?
Every summer day memory with my girl and my gang.
