Snowboarders and skiers in Norfolk have got a real treat on the way. Thursday 18th September 2008 sees the LG Air Bag Tour 2008 make the first of eleven stops at Norfolk Ski Club in Norwich, neatly coinciding with the weekly freestyle night. Thanks to those technology and style innovators at LG, riders will have the chance to polish their big air tricks with the confidence of having an LG Air Bag to fall gently back to earth on.
As part of LG's commitment to the development of British snowsports, the Air Bag is provided free of charge so participants only need to pay normal slope fees. Spectators are welcome to come and watch free of charge. LG will be on hand at to show off their latest handsets and give away free goody bags.
Places at the Air Bag sessions is limited so for your chance to be one of the lucky riders, make sure you register online at www.londonfreeze.com/lg
Riders from the regional events are also in with a chance of being part of the FSO4 Freeze in London. One person from each region will be selected based on their skill and style; winning an all expenses paid trip to London to ride alongside pro's at the LG Big Air Invitational Finals.
British snowboarder Dan Wakeham, who is sponsored by LG, will be attending as many of the LG Air Bag Tour events as possible. Dan is passionate about the LG Air Bag Tour and creating opportunities to develop tomorrow's Olympic hopefuls. Dan commented: “this is a fantastic initiative allowing snow sports enthusiasts to build their confidence and skills in a safe environment".
