Pako Benguerel

Pako is a true OG in-da game. Born in the small fishing village of Alella, Spain (near Barcelona), his parents put him on skis at a young age and he’s loved the mountains ever since. Pako was forced to watch as snowboarding progressed around him and was ecstatic to get his first pair of twin tips in 99’, around the time freeskiing really took off. He has steadily progressed into the biggest name in skiing in Andorra and Spain, and is deeply involved and recognized in the ski industry and all over the world. While Pako continues to dominate comps, design parks, coach camps, get shots, organize events, and film movie sections, he manages to maintain one of the nicest and most humble personalities in the game. Word up Pako.
