The best international athletes in snowboarding, freeskiing, FMX and skateboarding are ready to take-off for the first edition of the freestyle.berlin at the former Airport Berlin-Tempelhof.
Spectacular action is guaranteed from the 9. – 11. October 2009 on the 32-meter Big Air, the FMX dirtjump and in the vert ramp.
International top shoots of freestylesport have packed their bags for Zurich and are now heading for Berlin. They are coming from all over the world to compete in the disciplines of snowboarding, freeskiing, FMX and skateboarding. Everybody who is anybody is given the honour for the huge Meet & Greet. Saturday night is the night of the interdisciplinary Crossover Session, where selected competitors fight for the title of ‘Crossover Champ 2009’. Besides all the competitions there are parties with an excellent DJ line up and supreme live acts on several stages during the weekend. New trends of various vendors and more information of the freestyle world are showcased in the Label World. The Berlin audience can expect the crème de la crème of freestylesports and a surrounding program with cool sounds and styles.
Together with his team, its initiator and current OC President Erwin Flury sought to showcase the world of freestyle sports in the middle of the city. From the get-go, freestyle.ch aimed at providing a broad platform for the freestyle culture that combined freestyle sports contests with a freestyle industry fair. The fair has evolved over the years into the time-honoured “Label World” – an indispensable meeting platform for the industry and its customers. freestyle.ch’s program of contests has always reflected the latest trends in the freestyle sports scene. Since 2003, a mix of snowboarding, freeskiing, FMXing and skateboarding has proved itself to be a winning combination at freestyle.ch. Alongside its regular program of contests, freestyle.ch has also developed show contest formats such as its «Ultimate Crossover Session», where the disciplines compete against one another in teams. In 2007, international concert acts were put on the freestyle.ch program. In addition to its sports highlights, label fair and concerts, freestyle.ch has also repeatedly served as a platform to non-commercial organizations running prevention campaigns aimed at youth.
In 2009, the freestyle.ch format will venture across the Swiss border into Germany, to premiere its «freestyle.berlin» venue.
