2016 Peyragudes Rookie Fest: VIDEO

A Tour Stop like NO OTHER => The only WRT stop in the Pyrénées, Fr!
The Peyragudes WRT was awesomely presented by ACROBAG WORLD with Marc-André Tarte & Marie Le Bihan.

ENJOY THE VIDEO!

What went down
January 21-24, 2016 – The ArcroBag Team decided to put on an event which acts as a stepping stone to professional SnowBoardom:
· A cannon box and a jump were built into the course and mimicked into the AcroBag so you could really learn new tricks safely.
· The judging system was based on the biggest competitions asking the riders to choose between Technical & Creative runs.
· The course was progressive and allowed for riders to demonstrate rider creativity.

With 20 riders from 4 countries, the first edition of the Peyragudes World Rookie Tour was a staggering success with an impressive snowpark, good vibes, pro training opportunies, generous rewards and fun side activities.

The sun over the perfectly shaped black line in the Oslo Vinterpark was giving it all – and so did 75 young snowboarders at the Oslo Rookie Fest 2016 from 26th to 28th of February. Enjoy the video of 2016 Oslo Rookie Fest!

Oslo Rookie Fest 2016 from MOON on Vimeo.

The Black Yeti’s first ever slopestyle stop in the Norwegian capital was highly awaited – Norway has been one of the most represented countries in the World Rookie Tour the past few years. During the NATIONAL level World Snowboard Tour contest on past Saturday, Rookies stemming from eight different countries proved their Black Yeti skills showcasing massive tricks. Norwegian rider Isak Ulstein left the greatest impression on slopestyle course. Best girl became Rookie Emmi Parkkisenniemi from Finland. Isak and Emmi brought home full-paid tickets for the pinnacle event of the World Rookie Tour – the 2016 Volkl World Rookie Finals in Ischgl, April 2016, snowboards from Sims and Never Summer and of course the famous Black Yeti trophies. Parallel to the Oslo Rookie Fest, the X Games Oslo were going down in the World Winter Capital. After practice and competition, the Rookies watched the best riders of the world competing in the X Games Oslo Finals in Halfpipe and Big Air.
Several athletes of the X Games Oslo have previously competed in the World Rookie Tour, which is providing the unique chance to help the next generation of pro snowboarders to experience their first dives into international contests and develop their competition skills. Besides exercising and watching high level riding, the Rookies enjoyed a snowskate session with the local Asker Snowboard and Freestyle Club pushing the Rookies skateskills on snow.

If you dream to become a professional snowboarder,
then your future starts from Rookie Fest!
