Elias Elhardt and Friedl May have teamed up to invite their fellow pro riders to their home in the Kleinwalsertal on February 27th for an epic shredding session.
Just for this Friends Invitational event, shaper "Killer" will build a monster kicker out of 15,000 m3 of snow at the Kanzelwand, that is bound to fulfill anything a rider can hope for in an obstacle. And as this event is from riders for riders, they will also judge themselves and each other. Instead of having someone sitting around all day they will watch the footage of the session together, voting for what they think were the best tricks. Probably the best way to deal with the judging of such a friendly and chilled out event.
But just read some of Elias' own words on the event: Friedl and me have been friends for years now. What connected us has always been the passion of snowboarding. Supported by “x-ops.mobi" and “Das Höchste" we now organize a snowboard event together. We will invite some top-class snowboarders and friends to ride a mega session in the Kleinwalsertal with us. The x-ops.moni Friends Invitational will be an event by riders for riders. The fun at snowboarding will take the centre stage rather than the ranking or the prize money. The riders themselves will decide with a fair voting system who has made the best trick or who has been the best rider of the event. We are planning a huge kicker for this contest, which will be fun to ride due to its good design. We are looking forward to sharing our passion for snowboarding with all attendees!
