Wow! It was a day packed with freestyle action, riding fun, sick tricks, and plenty of good advice from the pro coaches Moritz Neuhäusler, Lisa Filzmoser and Niko Pflanzelt for the snowboard stars of tomorrow: The Nitro & Planet Sports “Power of Zehn Action Day” in the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn!
All freestyle-snowboarding teenagers could not have wished for a better program this past Saturday, 17th of March 2012: The Nitro & Planet Sports “Power of Zehn Action Day” had so much to offer for the select group of dedicated shredheads! All the stops were pulled out for the motivated crew and, thanks to the Power of Zehn they got the lift tickets for just 10 € for all under 19 year olds. Furthermore the well-known snowboard pros and Nitro & Planet Sports team riders Moritz Neuhäusler, Lisa Filzmoser and Niko Pflanzelt stood aside the participants during the pro coaching with invaluable advice and helped the ambitious troupe to set themselves into the limelight at the professional photo shoot and film set.
It could hardly have gone better! With peerless enthusiasm, the group of ongoing professionals and their role models rocked the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn neatly and put their skills to the test! “We were really lucky with the weather and all the riders were so motivated! Some were literally running riot on the obstacles and the riding level was quite high. The kids truly demonstrated their skills in the rail session and even performed some lipslides!
This park really caters for riders of all levels and so we were shredding all of the obstacles, except for the big kickers and the Superpipe, but we had the greatest fun on the Downrail. All in all it was in fact a sweet day and a top-notch event!”, Moritz Neuhäusler comments on the session. Lisa Filzmoser definitely enjoyed the Action Day, too, “It´s so much fun to pass on tips, show new moves and instantly see improvements! My personal highlight was a girl who had never jumped a kicker before and had the least experience of the group: She performed the fs180 and rightly blew me away! I think it’d be great if there were more events like this one and I would involve schools to reach out for a wider audience – this way more kids would get the chance to start snowboarding again!”
