Our homeboy Pekko Manninen reminded us of this fresh video from Wappulounas 2013 and added a couple words about this sick event which we also featured in our list of snowboard events to look out for in 2013/14.
As you already know from our main report the legendary Finnish spring session Wappulounas took place in Ruka again last spring! Like previous years it attracted some of the best riders from Finland to take part in the event. Take a look what the guys had to say about the event and don’t forget to check the video from last year!
Roope Tonteri - ‘Wappulounas is one of the funniest events during the season. It’s nice to get to ride some of the sickest obstacles with your friends. Last but not least Wappulounas has great parties!’
Eero Ettala - ‘Wappulounas brings back the good old days. Spring riding with your friends in a mellow and fun contest format with heavy partying involved.’
Antti Autti - ‘Wappulounas is like riding a perfect line or catching a wave! You can not explain the feeling of the festival to people who have not been there, they have to come experience it to understand it. It is the most legendary event in history of finnish snowboarding. I would never want to miss out on it!’
Jeppe Rontti (Overall Winner of Wappulounas 2013!) - ’As long as Wappulounas has been organized, it has been the best thing for me to happen that season!’
If you are as stoked us we are right now then start booking your flights for 30.4. – 4.5. for that’s when Wappulounas 2014 will go off!
