Thanks for riding and partying with us over the last 14 years! 🦍

Black Yeti thanks you, dear Rookies, for passion, dedication and perseverance. Last winter season was a great and long season, filled with new exciting challenges.


In fact, after 14 years of snowboarding events, the Black Yeti tried the first time freesking for a real stimulating experience. The adventure started with the first World Rookie Tour Freeski where the skills of athletes, as you can see below in the video, were incredible. There is a long line of people which supported us in this new project and we are thankfull to all of them.

In the upcoming weeks we will announce the first ever World Rookie Tour Skateboard with events in prestigious cities such as Milan (Italy), Innsbruck (Austria), Prague (Czech Republic) and many other to be soon announced! That means more events, more rookies, more fun! Stay tuned to catch all the information about this new adventure!
