Coaching on Thursday and Friday is for all level of riders who already have basic riding skills in the pocket. There will be many level of groups everything from first jump/rail groups to 540`s from 15m kicker groups. So don’t worry about you’re riding level! Half Pipe session on Friday evening is session style, but we have non-serious competition included. Categories are Hobby, Rookie and Oldster.

Team contest for 3 girl teams will be the final show of the event. It requires much more than just good riding to win this. Tradition is to judge this contest by creative riding lines, attitude, outfits and of course overall show time! Everyone, no mater what you’re riding level is, can enter this competition cause you don´t even have to do any jumps or rails. This is all about having fun!
