SUMMER shred, you say?
A dozen motivated snowboarders swapped slops for snow boots and headed to the Dachstein glacier for a summer shred session. The Girls Shred Session, hosted by QParks, this past weekend was a blast. Ana Rumiha and Michaela Tiefenbacher, two of Blue Tomato’s team riders, joined in the fun. They provided valuable coaching to the enthusiastic group of girls, who improved their technique as well as learnt new tricks. According to one of the participants, “by lunch time, I’d already added five new tricks to my skill set”.
Half way through the day, the girls settled down to a hot lunch and a discussion on riding technique. With renewed vigor, the girls then headed back out onto the slopes. The team riders upped the ante and challenged the girls to the advanced line and highest ollie.
After a full day of hard riding, the participants received a bag of goodies complements of Blue Tomato, Oakley and Golden Ride. A newbie to the Girls Shred Sessions had this to say of the day: “I enjoyed riding the park and [that] I could concentrate on my technique”.
