freestyle.ch 2008 in Zurich
Visitors are in for big installation and program changes at freestyle.ch 2008, as the world’s biggest and best snowboarders, free skiers, FMX pilots and skateboards step up to the challenge from September 26 – 28 at Zurich’s Landiwiese.
What’s tried and true never changes at freestyle.ch: a top starter field of snowboarders, free skiers, FMX pilots and skateboarders competing before the stunning backdrop of Lake Zurich. But when it comes to cutting edge changes, this event is on the mark like no other – constantly evolving to bring visitors the biggest and best trends in freestyle sports, sounds and labels.
Bigger ramps, awesome feats
This year’s ramps will literally be larger than life! The Big Air snow ramp will stretch 8 meters to a whopping 36 meters while the skateboard Half Pipe leaps 60 cm to a soaring 4.6 meters. For riders, this means more «air time», more secure landings and, of course, more chances to make those magical airs. For audiences, this means even more dazzling, daredevil tricks. This year’s new contest mode will ensure double the fun: A qualification contest in all disciplines will be held with half the riders on Friday and the other half on Saturday. This will not only pump up the action on Friday, but will also provide all 76 invited riders with an equal chance at qualifying for the Final on Sunday.
New trends at Label World
The energy of change always permeates freestyle.ch’s cherished institution – Label World – and its sea of over 80 exhibitors displaying the latest trends, developments and products in freestyle sports. When visitors to freestyle.ch 2008 aren’t marveling at all the mind-bending tricks and airs skyrocketing from the big ramps, they can continue to gape at the latest wonders in hardware, clothing and gadgets.
