Andreas Gidlund Disney Update

Andreas Gidlund is currently filming a TV show with Disney. The purpose of the show is to mentor an up and coming snowboarder or skier. There are 3 skiers and 3 snowboarder pros mentoring the kids. Here is an update from Andreas.

France has been pretty fun!
My main mission here is to guide and be a mentor for my norwegian kid Stian. We've been shredding pipe and jumps.

It was fun to get to know stian a bit, his a real talent, quite shy but i guess your shy when your 12 years old…
He did really good during these days and at the contest,
i think his strong points are jibbing and kickers!

The hotel we were staying at was super nice! Sick rooms and super good food!

Im pretty happy im not a movie star… because having 5-6 huge cameras in the face the whole day isn't super fun.
And especially not when you have to wait around a lot and do a lot of retakes. One scene we did we had to walk 10 meters, and we had to do it 10+ times!

Anyway its been quite fun to do it and i think its good their doing something like this for kids!
Its a great way to show the sport and get more kids involved!

So keep your eyes open for this show.Disney will show 6-8 episodes during 2 months. 1 new each week, then a 30 minute episode for the final.im not 100% sure when its suppose to air but i know the Final show is in April so should be feb – march i guess!

So get Disney Channel XD right now! :)
