THE TARTE SHOW supported by T-Mobile
The Billabong Air & Style Quarterpipe Contest has returned to its birthplace Innsbruck/ Austria.
T-Mobile presented the unique event follow-up documentary „The Tarte Show“ on Sunday (03.02.08) night at THETARTESHOW.COM.
The Tarte Show will give you an exclusive behind-the-scenes impression of one of the most discussed events in Snowboarding in 2008. Follow host, Snowboard Pro and crowd-pleaser Marc André Tarte in 16 episodes through the whole event. Watch the riders arrive in Innsbruck, catch up some of the latest scene gossip and sneak a peek of the prestigious Riders Dinner with pros like Terje Haakonsen, Antti Autti, and Kevin Pearce.
After that you will get a ﬁrst hand impression of how it feels to ride the quarterpipe with Marc and the pros, followed by an interview with Wolﬁ Schröter, the setup construction mastermind and former A&S participator. After that, Marc meets Trevor Andrew, Pro- Snowboarder and frontman of his band „The Trouble“ for a chat about Trevors current view of Snowboarding and its crosslines with his second passion – music – before performing at the Vice Party at Blue Chip in Innsbruck.
Finally Marc will take you to the event: See Queens of the Stoneage and Dynamite Deluxe backstage and live in concert. Share the atmosphere in the riders room, listen to ﬁnal words of Drew Stevenson at the riders meeting, feel the tension at the start gate in front of the crowd, see the contest, the winner, the party….
… and get a sweet, hung-over and exhausted event recapitulation the day after with the riders, the initiator Andrew Hourmont and the A&S Team.
