2016 Völkl World Rookie Finals: New Champions Crowned!

The 11th edition of the Völkl World Rookie Final just crowned the best overall boy and girl at the Ischgl Snowpark. This year, the weather conditions did not help both riders and organizers, in fact after the first sunny day of qualification for rookie and grom boys, the qualification for the girls had to be cancelled. The final day was also postponed and it took place on Sunday, the 10th of April, when finally the sun came out again and gave the possibility to the both male and female riders to show their skills and their talent in the Ischgl Snowpark. In the final, 32 best overall boys and all the registered girls, that did not have the possibility to do the qualification day, showed an incredible level of riding with solid tricks in the two final runs.

Enna Ikola from Finland, took the first place in the rookie category with a backside 360 melon on the first jump, frontside 360 fs grab on the second one, frontside air tailgrab on the spine and finishing up with a lipslide on the jib section. The finnish rider showed a nice and clean run, but at the end, the 12 years old, Kokomo Murase from Japan won not only in the grom category, but also the best overall girl of the Völkl World Rookie Final. The young Japanese destroyed the snowpark with backside 360 tailgrab and frontside 720 on the jumps, followed by a frontside air to fakie and a cab 180 to boardslide on the jib obstable.

After the girls final, it was time for the boys. The best 32 overall boys showed an incredible level of riding and at the end the champion was crowned. Isak Ulstein is the 2016 Völkl World Rookie Champion thanks to an incredible run consisting of a frontside 1080 fs grab and a backside 1080 mute on the jumps, a backside rodeo 540 tailgrab on the spine and 270 to boardaslide 270 out on the jib section. In the grom category, the level was pretty impressive, considering that the first grom ended up 4th in the overall ranking and the name of this future pro is Takeru Otsuka from Japan that performed a cab double cork 900 mute on the first kicker, a backside double cork 1080 mute, followed by a beautiful michalchuck melon transfer on the spine and concluding with a backside 270 boardslide on the final obstacle.

Finals postponed to Sunday 10th April at the Völkl World Rookie Finals

Bad weather and fog seems to follow the Völkl World Rookie Finals this year. After the cancelled qualification for the girls yesterday, the organization committee was forced to postpone the finals both for boys and girls to Sunday 10th April. After a lot of fog in the morning, it seemed to clear out a little bit and to give the possibility to the girls to ride, but at the end the fog came back and both rookies and groms went back to Ischgl for a relaxing afternoon, getting ready for the big day of tomorrow.

Day 3 at the Völkl World Rookie Finals

Due to the bad weather condition and the fog, the organization had to cancel the qualification for the rookie girls and the grom girls. The young female riders were motivated and showed that they can have fun also if the visibility is pretty bad. After a session on the jibbing area, they found some plastic mats and everybody had a lot of fun sliding down in the snowpark, even down the spine!

In the afternoon, the riders had the possibility to have a unique experience during the two scheduled workshops. First, rookies and groms had the chance to build a longboard from old snowboards thanks to Ruffboards (more info at www.ruffboards.com), a passionate group of people in collaboration with ex-prisoners from Wien, Austria. They design, produce and sell worldwide their hand-made longboards.

Later in the day, Viva con Agua explained to the rookies and to the groms the importance of water and the problems that some countries have in finding clear and drinkable water.

Then the action started up in the snowpark, where the rookie boys and the grom boys battled for a spot in the big final on Saturday, 9th April. The sun was shining almost all day long and gave to the riders the possibility to execute two runs, the best one counts for the final rank.
