sam schaer big kahuna kicker15

On Saturday the 5th of March 2016 in Ovronnaz, a small ski resort in the beautiful Wallis in Switzerland, will be held the 3rd edition of the Big Kahuna Kicker (BKK), organized by Carlos Gerber, international professional snowboarder and ambassador of the resort, and Florian Bruchez, professional skier.

With the support of Teleovronnaz and the resort, the concept of the day is to welcome professional freestylers for a free session on a huge kicker of 5 meters high. Built on top of the slope of « Petit-Pré », this kicker will be surrounded by the amazing panorama of Ovronnaz, which will make this show even more stunning.

There won’t be any competition or judges, the pleasure and fun are the leitmotiv of the event, and this is what makes this event a first one of this kind. “The main goal of the day is to present the resort in which I grew up, to offer an impressive show to the hosts and to offer to my friends a fun day without any stress. This is for us the occasion to gather together, meet the public, and party for the end of the season", says Carlos.

The show will start à 11h00, with the sound of the DJ from Nendaz, Dr-Fad-R, with drinks and food to allow the public to enjoy the show the whole day. Furthermore, the BKK will give the occasion to the visitors to meet and greet with all the freestylers. As the place is easy to reach, it will allow all kind of visitors to discover the freestyle from a closer view.

Carlos and Florian being known for their party style, the day will be followed by an après-ski down in the resort at 15h30, with the performance of the Crazy Vecchios, a band from Bern playing French rock music. At 20h00 the place will become a free festival, with the performance of the Silver Firs and Hot Like Sushi, 2 pop-rock and psychedelic bands, and DJ Green Giant & DJ Klash from the very well- known Downtown Boogie and Los Scratchos.

A festive and friendly day, just like the 2 organizers, which will allow the public to meet those talented sportsmen in an easy-going and intimate atmosphere. Pictures being more relevant than words, you can feel the last edition on the Facebook page of the association “The Big Kahuna Festival". Carlos and Florian will be live on March the 2nd on the radio Couleur 3 at 16h30 to talk about the event.
