This is a needlefelted snowboarder making a grab trick in the air. I´ve used pipe cleaners as armature, but the rest is needlefelted of swedish wool. I got he inspiration from a photo  found on Internet. I´m planning on making some more snowboarders making different tricks, and maybe make a mobile of them.
