Want to watch snowboard industry heavyweights, riders and chicks punch each others lights out in a boxing ring for your entertainment? ‘Course you do! Read on for the full info on this not to be missed ISPO party in Munich next week. (Do not attempt to knock your mate’s lights out. All participants receive training from qualified boxing professionals…)
The excitement of Lights Out can only be summed up by the title of an email received from professional snowboarder Bob Van Unnik, written in all caps, “I WANNA FIGHT!!!!!!”
686 Lights Out, presented by Warsteiner, Electric, ISPO and Onboard, and benefitting F_ck Cancer, returns with “Blood, Sweat and Beers” Monday, January 27, at Backstage in Munich, De.
Come watch professional snowboarders Bob Van Unnik and Victor de le Rue return to the ring in a long awaited rematch for the title won last year by Van Unnik, followed by Gerome ‘Coin Coin’ Mathieu and Enak Gavaggio settling the ski vs snowboard debate in the ring as well as a handful of other industry insiders will battling it out for charity and separating the men from the boys.
Guesthost Henry Jackson will be on hand making sure things stay insanely fun and possibly under control, and a panel of pro snowboarders will sit as guest judges throughout the night.
The participants and matchups will be revealed at the 686 Booth at 5:00pm the day of the event, and the main event will kick off at 8pm sharp at Backstage. “Holy Moly! Last year was insane, I can’t even begin to imagine what will go down this year with this crew,” said Patrick McCarthy, 686 Global Team Captain. “It’s going to be insane, man…”
