Freestyle: Acrobats in the Air

 

If you like dare-devil sports, you’ll love these airborne artists. One thing snowboarders, skateboarders, FMXers and freeskiers have in common is that they come to life once they leave the ground. And the people just love to watch.

The entire international freestyle community came together for the freestyle.ch meeting in 2006, held in Zurich (Switzerland) from 22nd to 24th September. The event made full use of the space offered on the “Landiwiese” to house the spectacular ramps, half-pipes, stages, arenas, and stands to make an unforgettable experience for all who attended.

The world’s finest performers in each discipline staggered spectators with daredevil leaps, tricks and flips in their attempts to capture the title of champion and a share of the $100,000 prize money.

When it was all over, the freestyle.ch winners were: Eero Ettala (snowboard, Finland), Martin Misof (freeski, Austria), Mat Rebeaud (FMX, Switzerland) - the defending champion, and Sandro Dias (skateboard, Brazil), who also won the crossover.champ title.

As well as enjoying spectacular sport, everyone had ample opportunity to “party till you drop” at the Meet&Greet afterparties. What an event!
