Last year I was the first European mountainboarder who visited Local Trip Mountainboard Park, a cradle of Brazilian mountainboarding. The story of this place is inextricably linked with the life of its founder, Paulo Solon.
In early September I was lucky to stay a couple of days at home of the current owner of FLAME — Joсhen Morcher aka Jo Mo. He owned the company less than a year ago and now actively invests in promotion.
It seems to be that all the best mountainboarders in the world have already visited spring extreme show Breakthrough, but this year a new one made it. Mason Moore finally brought to Russia his double backflip.
We mined some data from the last MWFC based on official results, enjoy!
Brindy has been the UK champion for the last three years! This boy just loves mountainboarding! Enthusiastic and up for anything — Matts trick bag has been growing fast! He is one of the most consistent riders out there and a strong competitor in both freestyle and boardercross. Sponsored by MBS Mountainboards and Ezo Brand clothing.
We started to organize demo shows and events here in Russia based on artificial constructions since 2004. During the first two or three years we’ve experimented with the roll-in’s length and height, angle of jump and width of landing. Finally the ideal measurements have been found and have been used at all big competitions over the last five years.
Young but already well known rider and video director form France tells about Russian trips, French invasion and mountainboarding.
Standing at the end of the season 2005 I must confess it is no more a hobby; it is a way of life with all time and power involved in it. Finally all other things as work etc disappeared leaving only one activity in the life — Mountainboard. Is it good or not I can’t say it is just as it is and no other choice. So the 4th season of mountainboarding in Russia was full of travel, communication, new moves and new bruises. The last is so get used to that there is no need for description.
Hi, my name is Alexander Pavlov, though more people prefer using my nick name PAL PAL. I’m 19 and I’ve been mountainboarding for already 2 years. Also I’ve been skiing since 2 years old and at 15 I started snowboarding. I am a student of MSU (Moscow State University) on the faculty of computation mathematics and cybernetics (oh yeah baby).
How to be in a sport and still don’t be recognized inside the board community? Difficult, but funny. It seems that someone upstairs don’t want to give us the easy way. But as we get the harder we have less competition. Winter came to Russia but in the European part there’s still not enough snow to ride our snow-surfers. In Siberia and Ural people already enjoy the fresh winter snow and placed their summer all terrain monsters into hibernation until spring comes.
