Onboard Magazine endorses this Finnish shred mayhem. Should you be anywhere close to Ruka – and in fact, even if you aren’t – attend this event. It’s going to be an unforgettable trip…
Wappulounas presented by DC Shoes brings the amazing snowboarding season to the end in Ruka, Finland at April 28th–30th. The most famous Finnish snowboard event gathers the best riders and everyone into great vibes to end the season with amazing and unique riding and unforgettable parties.
Three tense days of jam sessions in weird obstacles that you can only see at Wappulounas and parties with high-class bands and DJ’s under the warm sun of Finnish spring: that’s what Wappulounas is made of. With over 15 years of celebrated snowboard events, it has been awarded thrice as Riders Choice Event of the Year. There have been dozens of world-class riders such as Eero Ettala, Heikki Sorsa, Scotty Lago, Roope Tonteri and Antti Autti, who says: “It’s just the best event Finland has to offer. I recommend it to everyone, no matter of your age or riding skills!”
It’s hard to imagine a Finnish event without good parties–and why should one? This year amazing bands like The Irrationals, No Smoking Team, 60100 Soundsystem, Relentless, DJ Miky Mau and The Capital Beat host the wild after-parties at Piste. There’s something unique also at Wappulounas after-skis, where 2–7 Miehen Trio keeps the dances on, and there might be some surprises too. Those of you who have been partying with Finns, you know what to expect when things go wild–those are to parties to remember!
Spring is the best time of our lives, and Wappulounas is the best thing spring has to offer. You don’t want to miss this!
