Profile “Real Family” – Seppl Ramsbacher (C), Jeremie Unterberger and Georgi Mihaylov
Hailing out of Carinthia bordering Slovenia in South East Austria, the Real Family formed as a crew no more than a couple of years ago, totally focused on the core values of snowboarding: the sport, friendship and party. After about a year, they thought they had what it took to be taken seriously with the other big crews out there that they had grown up watching and respected. That decision lead them to pull out an old Hi-8 Camera and start shooting all of their trips to different locations resulting in the production of their first crew video.
Much to their surprise, not only did it turn out well, there were even people who liked it. Liked it enough at least for them to continue working on new productions each year where both the riding and the production improved. As the popularity of facebook exploded they jumped at the opportunity of making a Real Family fan page that took the idea to another level, creating a chance to become known and seeing the Family grow at the same time.
Today the real family has Pro Riders, some sponsored kids, and almost as importantly a bunch of non-sponsored buddies. True to the core, the Real Family is all about the fun, not the business.
The three Real Family riders for the Vans Wängl Tängl 2012 are:
