[Here's an edit of last year's action for a taste of what to expect. Please ignore the fruit booting.]
There’s only one month to go until the 4th edition of gloryfy BASTARDS goes down once more in the Zillertal Arena (Austria). The national and international snowboard elite will gather on Friday, 18 January 2013 from 7 pm in the center of Gerlos to battle it out.
One month ahead of gloryfy BASTARDS 2013 freestyle fans can look forward to some of the scene’s biggest names coming to Gerlos: snowboarders like Peter König (AUT), Mario Käppeli (CH), Chris Sörman (SWE), Marius Otterstad (NOR), David Bertschinger Karg (CH) and Kim Rune Hansen (NOR) will throw down the highest level of riding off the immaculately groomed wedge. The top riders, the stunning location and the hyped up atmosphere drew more than 10,000 people to Gerlos over the last years.
As every year at the gloryfy BASTARDS event, a bunch of the world‘s best snowboarders will be invited to battle it out for a EUR 11,000 prize purse in the center of Gerlos. One of Europe’s biggest set-ups – planned and built by headshaper Manfred ‘Brandy’ Brandacher and his crew – will serve as the epic freestyle playground for the riders: 25,000 cubic metres of snow, a 15 metre high obstacle with 22 metres table and an innovative end section featuring an igloo-funbox built in cooperation with Unique Locations. And to top off all that, the entry is free for everybody!
Groundbreaking shredding is guaranteed by the international riders line-up. And of course parties of epic proportions are also part oft he BASTARDS experience: find DJs like the Wax Wreckaz, Invasion Sound, DJ NLP, Smok1ng Fing3rs, Judge Reini and DJ Philips tearing down the place at the official afterparty locations Cin-Cin, Country Club, Little London and Garage.
