Jan Scherrer is regarded as the rising star of the Swiss Snowboard scene. He was a skier until he was seven, and then he decided in favour of snowboarding, since it simply has more style and is also more fun. Jan learned on the slopes and gathered inspiration from films. After that he boarded in parks and in the pipe.
With his 13 years he is already boarding in the tracks of his great role model Shaun White from the USA. It is no wonder that at this tender age he can already claim that the sponsors are lining up.
Like any teenager, Jan has been known to skateboard in parks, hang out with his buddies, and enjoy the freedom of summer time. He also enjoys drawing.
Jan has many loyal fans around the scene. An admirer of American legend Shaun White, Jan models himself after the youthful skateboarder’s legend-making style.
