Get ready to shred: the Elan Snowboards Trick Tip Tour is coming to the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg!
Look out, shredheads! This weekend you’ll get the chance to test the newest Elan snowboarding equipment and get a coaching with the Elan pros. And because that’s not enough, you’ll even get the opportunity to win an Elan goodie bag and at the end of the tour you can even cash in an Elan Prodigy board with Union boots and Argon binding. We talked to Elan pro Dejan Hodzic about the tour.
Since December the Elan Snowboards Trick Tip Tour has been all over Europe’s best snowparks, proving that freestyle action doesn’t need to be expensive, because at every tourstop you can test the newest Elan snowboarding equipment and get a professional coaching for free! We’ve talked to Elan pro Dejan Hodzic, who has been present in numerous parks, asking him what sets the Elan Snowboards Trick Tip Tour apart.
Hi Dejan! Since when does the Elan Snowboards Trick Tip Tour exist and where did the idea come from?
The Elan Trick Tip Tour is going on for the second year now. The idea was born while we were discussing the podcasts and park checkouts we publish on a regular basis, which we wanted to pep up a bit. This way, we can publish video edits and to demo tests – and if the local communities are having fun at the same time, all the better!
How has the tour been going so far? Is there anything you’d stress out?
Until now, everything has been going really well. We had to postpone a few dates because of the weather, but that’s normal if you’re out of doors. You can never predict the weather, especially if you’re planning ahead for the whole season. The powder at our first stop was pretty memorable, though!
The next tourstop will take place in the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg – what do you think about the park as a location?
Well, I’ve never been there, so I really can’t say. I had a look at quite a few pictures of the park though, and they look really promising. Generally, there’s nothing to worry about if the location is a QPark.
What are you looking forward to the most at the Feldberg tourstop?
Good question, there are several possibilities. But I guess, that would have to be some good rail features.
Can you already tell us more about the next mission of the Trick’n’Shoot Raffle?
We usually decide what the next mission will be with the riders on location, but it’s surely going to be something to do with the park.
Sounds like a massive freestyle weekend in the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg – thanks for the interview, Dejan and have fun!
Expect massive action if you pay the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg a visit this weekend and you don’t even have to do much to take part – we’re not very fond of lengthy registrations. Just come to the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg on Saturday, the 25th of February 2012 and be at the Elan test stand at 10:00AM, then you can take part in the testing and coaching if you show a valid ID. At the coaching you can win tons of massive Elan goodies if you show your most stylish tricks to the pros.
After the tourstop, things will get going in earnest, because then you’ll get the chance to win even bigger! If you’re part of the coaching, you’ll be caught on camera by a professional photo crew. All pictures will then be published on Facebook and whoever gets the most likes, wins a massive Elan goodie bag!
If you can’t make it, there’s still a chance to win! Thanks to our Trick’n’Shoot Raffle you’ve got the chance to win all the same! Just fulfil the mission, which we will announce after the tourstop: take a picture of yourself in the situation described and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of the tour, we’ll even throw an Elan product set comprising the massive Prodigy board including Union boots and Argon binding into the bargain, so taking part really pays off!
So, don’t dither about and plan a visit to the Bohny Snowpark Feldberg for the weekend! Stay tuned – for more information on the Elan Snowboards Trick Tip Tour and the Trick’n’Shoot Raffle go to www.elansnowboards.com of follow us on Facebook!
