We’re hyped to announce that our annual season-ending Send Off Session has found a new home for its fourth iteration, in the epic resort of Levi in Finnish Lapland.
From April 21-28, the Onboard crew will strike out north with an all-time crew of riders and videographers in tow to throw down on an array of awesome park features that the Levi are busily sculpting across their mountain’s inclines.
With a greater focus on video than ever, this season’s Session will see the cream of Europe’s movie-making crop pitch up in crews with the aim of producing the most kick-ass edit possible from the week-long session on Levi’s hand-crafted hits.
At the end of the week-long video session, the teams will hunker down, decide on whose edit stoked them out the most and the winners will be rewarded with cash, fist-bumps, Karhu and schnapps.
Not only this, but outside of the video jam will be a host of other riders invited to show up and throw down for Onboard’s team of photographers and filmers. From European all-stars to Finnish legends, there’s guaranteed to be a non-stop onslaught of hammers so heavy you’ll be reaching for the Kleenex.
From the first day of riding we’ll be pumping out daily video edits of all the bangers, slams, whams, bams and thank you ma’ams to keep you looped in, followed up by a host of post-event coverage including a full wrap-up edit, photo galleries, a bunch of online Send Off Session features and more.
Confirmed riders include: Kevin Backstrom, Tor Lundstrom, Roope Tonteri, Peetu Piiroinen, Kalle Ohlson, Seppe Smits, Sami Luhtanen, Jamie Nicholls, Markku Koski, Sebbe de Buck, Jesse Augustinus, Rowan Coultas and many more.
