REFRESH FRIDAY: KELLY SILDARU

PROFILE: Kelly Sildaru
DATE OF BIRTH: 17.02.2002
BORN IN: Talinn, Estonia
DISCEPLINES: Freeskiing, Slopestyle, Freeskiing, Big Air/Slopestyle

Get Stoked, and let’s have a look at one of the youngest pioneers in freestyle skiing for this refresh friday!

Can’t get anymore fresher than Kelly Sildaru, aged 17 now. Landing tricks like a switch 900 clean competing against other pro’s twice her age, Kelly is the youngest  freestyle skier to win a gold medal at the winter X games event in 2016 at 13 years of age.

Kelly is born and raised in Estonia, and was coached by her dad from a young age. At 5 years old Kelly already ripped boxes and ramps, making it look “easy peasy lemon squeezy”.

Check out Kelly when she was 5!

After winning her first golden medal, Kelly became the first female to ever land a Switch 1260° Mute and a 1440° in Norway at the Winter X games in 2017.

 

She is on her way to conquer, winning 3 golden medals this year at the Winter X games in Aspen which no one ever did before. And next to that she also landed a 99 out of 100 score, which is nearly perfect, and a first in slopestyle history and herstory. (https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=herstory)

Adding another world title in the halfpipe this year at the FIS World Cup in UTAH, USA. She at 17 years old is already a legend. One to keep your eye on!

As a four-year-old, Roos was on skis for the first time in the more than well-known village of Ellmau in Skiwelt. Since then she has been going skiing with her family every year to the same village, and her love for winter sports has ignited. At the age of 16 she made a short trip to the Wolfskamer in Huizen to follow slalom training. Here the interest arose to become a ski instructor. At the age of 18 she left for Tyrol to get her Anwärter, and then went back to Ellmau where she always had lessons to teach at the same ski school. Since 2011/2012 she has been teaching here every year. In daily life she works as a bartender in one of Amsterdam’s famous brown pubs ‘Cafe Welling’, she stands as DJ Doornroosje behind turntables at events and festivals, she organizes parties in the LGBTIQ scene, and she works as an LGBTIQ activist at Stichting Fonds de Trut. A busy jack-of-all-trades, therefore, and certainly a bird of paradise. Her greatest passion still lies in skiing, and she experiences the ultimate feeling on a tightly prepared slope early in the morning, already carving towards the most beautiful slopes, most authentic Alm’s, and huts. Enjoying local food, culture and last but not least; a fresh, tightly taped Weizen. She is certainly not averse to the Apres ski, where she sometimes also appears behind the turntables to get the ski and board shoes off the floor. The best thing about skiing is the feeling of freedom, the improvement of techniques, and the moment that you take the first turn, with the valley in sight, you can be completely detached from the rest of the world. Giving ski lessons also brings her a lot of pleasure. Every person you teach is different, and it’s always the best challenge to coach each individual, and see how someone develops.
