Riders are getting ready for the Burton European Open 2007, which is kicking off in just over a month. Top riders are confirmed already, the open online registration is finished and it looks like the BEO will gather again around 450 riders from all over the world for the Halfpipe and Slopestyle disciplines. They will battle for US$ 125.000 prize-money and important points for the Burton Global Open Series Ranking as well as the TTR Ranking.
The criticism that the Boa system doesn’t allow for different tensions over areas of the boot has been addressed and calmly told to bugger off by this new double system, incorporated into Vans’ Fargo Focus. The upper and lower boot can now be independently tightened as desired, with the ankle area being tightened by both to combat heel lift and they’re as joyously easy to get off as ever. Aside from the rather neat snow camo look, these have an updated Quadfit thermal liner, airbag/EVA cushioning and arch support, good footbeds and a middle of the road flex. Good for pretty much everyone who wants to do a bit of everything.

Located next to the 'Kesslerlift' in Riezlern the park is presenting itself with new innovation and perfectly in shape.

A board for everyone and anyone who remembers that when you break it all down, snowboarding is supposed to be fun. And that’s the Mini’s one goal: fun. Easy to ride, easy to chuck about – easy, easy, easy. Could this be the perfect board for skate inspired jibbery? Certainly it wouldn’t be much use on a powder day or hitting mega kickers, but as a second board for a fun day in the park or playing around on the mountain, the Mini could be just the ticket. Small, yet perfectly formed. Like those fun sized Snickers you get at Christmas. Or Kylie.
