The third installment of the European Forum Snake Sessions crew found itself at Fellhorn, the biggest mountain in Germany. International Forum rider Kareem El Rafie took some time out of his shred schedule to come out and host/judge the event for all the German shredders. The local park crew and especially Boogie were super helpful with everything and even organized a radio interview for Kareem and himself to promote the event over the airwaves. After a mouth full of mints he approached the mic, and being the smooth talker that he is, made sure that every listener out there knew what was going down in Fellhorn the next day.
The contest day opened up with heavy snowfall and grey skies. Part of the crew decided to take the first staff gondola up at 7:15 (which evetually left at 8:15 instead) and make sure the park was in dope condition. That it was and besides the bad weather, the day was a success! There was a DJ spinning on the decks, kids constantly hiking and hitting the rails with style and grace, Kareem lurking around, and Bavarian style BBQ (read: 30 kilograms of MEAT). Everyone had fun and the kids were stoked about the day. One kid; Cees Wille, even came all the way from The Netherlands with his mom to ride in the contest. Now that’s what we call dedication to a cause! He didn’t have to leave emptyhanded either as his shredding skills entitled him to a 2nd place in the Snakesessions.
Thanks again for the Fellhorn park crew, our hardworking Forum crew of Hanna-Leena, Joonas & Marcel, + Jagge, Michi and Jörg… + a big shout out to Kareem for coming over for the weekend!
