Willow was born in 1983 and grew up behind the Iron Curtain in Ludwigsfelde. In 1996, Willow got his first skateboard and this was the start of the rise of probably the best German skateboarder today.
Meanwhile, Willow moved with his wife and child from Berlin to Cologne and his skateboard career runs better than ever. At the end of 2009, he was promoted to the Global Etnies team with Ryan Sheckler, Juergen Horrwarth, Cairo Foster, Albert Nyberg, Devine Calloway and many others. In November 2010, Almost Skateboards presented Willow as a new team rider next to Daewon Song, Chris Haslam, Cooper Wilt, Lewis Marnell and Youness Amrani. In addition, Willow was chosen as “Skateboarder of the Year 2011″ with the Action Sports Awards.
After Willow opened the Almost 5 Incher DVD with his own part in 2012, he finally became Almost Pro and was elected as one of the “2012’s Top 10 Searched Skaters” by Transworld Skateboarding magazine. We love having Willow on the team!
