Three days of powder and bluebird, three highly motivated girls and a photographer and a filmer – well knowing their business- on their side. The three teams from Austria and Hungary, the UK and the Czech Republic were riding for their victory at the Red Bull Shr3d Girls Only up on the Kitzsteinhorn at Zell am See – Kaprun. The goal: Shoot the best 3-minute-Snowboardclip you can.
It was the audience in front of their computers and smartphones who were in charge of the online-voting and the partycrowd at the Burg Kaprun gave their final voice for the winner.
After three perfect days at the Red Bull Shr3d Girls Only up on the Kitzsteinhorn at Zell am See – Kaprun, the three captains Anna Gyarmati (AUT), Aimee Fuller (UK) and Sarka Pancochova (CZ) presented their produced videos on Saturday evening first for a sneak peek online and later to the crowd at the party on the Burg Kaprun. As the three videos were shown on the big screen, the audience could not believe how different and creative the three different clips were. Some special blondes action, tricky tricks and scenes were cheered with loud and happy screaming. Especially the rookies of the three teams couldn’t believe the new earned fame they got.
The task to fulfill the three missions backcountry, park und urban within three days and to capture it in a 3-minute snowboard movie, required everything the nine riders had to give. Sleepless nights because of shootings till 4 am in the morning, tired legs after hiking round after round in the park and square eyeballs were only a few of the signs of wear.
But as you could see in the creativity of the captures from the British team, in the number of high technical tricks the Czechs showed and in the awesome filmed and stunningly edited footage from the Austrian, all hassles of the last three days were totally worth it. It was the crowd at the party in the Burg Kaprun who had the final daunting voice to choose a winner of the Red Bull Shr3d Girls Only. In the end it was Team Czech Republic with unbelievable 2300 likes in the online voting, plus a pretty high score at the decibel analyser, who took home glory and fame for the Czech movie.
A little later, on the dancefloor all the thinking about the competition felt like slush from yesterday. Altogether they celecebrated happily to the sound of FIVA, Sunae Solar and the Etepete Girls.
Right after the winners from the Czech Republic raised their trophy into the night, Red Bull asked the happy girls for an interview.
Congratulations ladies for taking home the glory and the first place here at the Red Bull Shr3d Girls Only. Tell us how you feel?
Team CZ: (minutelong happy screaming)
Tereza: It just feels amazing!
Diana: It’s epic!
Sarka how does it fell for you, as you are used to ride in bigger comps?
Sarka: The feeling of winning in a Team Contest is so different. It’s not just me at that point, there are two other riders plus the filmer and the photographer. We made the best, tried our hardest and gave all we could.
