Check out what the Rip Curl crew have been up to on the Scandi and Eastern Euro legs of their premiere tour for their new team flick, Welcome Home 2.
Here’s the field memo team manager Raph fired over…
The Rip Curl Team is now back from the Scandinavian and Eastern Europe tour.
“I was super stoked to meet again all these snowboard fans all over Europe. I am glad they love the movie” Elias Elhardt said.
Basically, the feedbacks we had on tour have been really good. WH2 appears much better from its previous chapter. Furthermore, the attendance increased: More people than last year and lots of positive feedbacks!
Janne Lipsanen threw some words just before the screening in Slovakia “Good to be back in Trvana; The after party will be epic”; and according to the Pro- Team, it was!!!!!
The tour cruised from Helsinki to Oslo via Göteborg. It was tough to start the show in Helsinki cause of all these party animals upthere! After a couple of miles on a Ferry and by Car, we hit Bratislava and Trvana. Few Skateboard and Wakeboard sessions later, It was time to show the movie in Czech Republik in Brno and Prag accompanied by a sick rock band!
￼We ended the tour in Ljubljana, where all the pro Slovenian snowboarders (Grilo, Pristavec, Bizjak…) showed up to bring us a support!!! The cinema in slovenia were loaded and the Photo exhibition was successful!!!!
￼For the First time, the premiere tour went to Zagreb. Nice screening and a huge party followed up!
Now it’s time to make a break.
We dedicated all the Tour to Torgeir Berre – Have a fast and great Recovery Mate!!!
￼￼Join us for the last stops!
