Billabong Kid's Shoot, Hotzone.tv Snowboard Opening 2012 in Austria

Snowboarding season is on! Last weekend saw the official opening of the European snowboarding season at the Hotzone.tv Opening on the Hintertux glacier in Tyrol, Austria! Heaps of board and binding testing, wild parties and beautiful weather, sums up the weekend pretty much. We almost sold out on the official Opening t-shirts that we had done together with the Hotzone.tv crew.

Thanks to your t-shirt purchases at our booth, we will now be giving €1.200 to the non-profit organization High Five in Munich. High Five helps and supports underpriviliged kids to experience all the good things that come through participating in snowboarding, skateboarding or bmx. Check them out at www.wearehighfive.com

On Sunday our Kid's Shooting with Pleasure Snowboard Magazin went down in the Betterpark on the glacier. Fischi and Oefi (Pleasure Magazin) together with Billabong teamriders Wolly Nyvelt, Roland Hörtnagl, Joe Handle and Nadine Haertinger were shredding with 18 kids on various obstacles in the park. Foggy weather, wind and heavy snowfalls made the shooting a bit tricky, but at the end of the day, all of the kids got a killer shot in and the kids didn't want to stop riding after all!!

An epic day for all of us and a big THANK YOU to all the kids who came out! We're stoked and hope you guys will carry the stoke in you for a long long time and keep on snowboarding forever!! See you next year!
