Oakley and Shaun White take snowboarding to the Asian public with Air & Style Beijing. Set in China’s national Bird’s Nest stadium, this year’s event will be held from the 5-7th of December 2013. As part of the wider franchise of Air & Style, Beijing has only been running since 2010, but is already a huge date on the World Tour – a 6 Star event with $100,000 up for grabs.
Last year’s winner was Japanese 16 year old Yuki Kadono, who smashed Seppe Smitts and Seb Toots to become the youngest Air & Style winner ever, as well as a flagship rider for the continent’s growing success in the sport.
