After last year’s big success and the great feedback of all the riders on Alex Tank’s invitational contest it was time to step it up and go for round two! Last weekend Alex invited 20 international riders to a secret spot near his home town in the very south of Germany. The whole event was designed, organized, judged and loved by snowboarders. No crowd, assorted media, relaxed tunes of DJ Smart, BBQ and one hell of a jib crew.
This guaranteed for an easy atmosphere full of stoked and happy faces from seeing so much creative and progressive snowboarding. All the riders loved this event to the fullest.
Steffen Kornfeld provided some shots for us. Dig this!
Alex is back on snow – and loves it.
You gotta love this setup. It is even more impressive if you know that all this was built having 20° Celcius for weeks with the left-overs of this poor European winter. Props to the Honey Hills Crew!
The clip is so good and so much fun to watch:
