FOTG park opening & Board Demo

This past weekend, 8&9 /2/2014 we hosted a board demo at the opening event of the new FRULITE on the GO park at Kalavrita.
Saturday was a perfect day, our tent was at the bottom of the new snowpark, with a lot of different boards for testing!
 New models, new shapes, new technologies from NITRO, SLASH and JONES snowboards, plus the 14-15 collection of TSG helmets were all waiting for you to check them out!
The park was perfect and riders from all over Greece started enjoying it!
Many people passed by our tent to check and to try out  boards, with tons of questions about shapes, brands and boards specifications being hitting us all day long....
many checked the splitboards,

while for others was the first time ever with a snowboard....Welcome to the family Filip!!!!

Splitboard testing for Nick and Ray

John and JONES

you can check some action from day one here and here! and day two here!

On day two (Sunday) we had some heavy wind problems, so no tent  was set...
alot of guys, tested some boards at the park, 'cause most lifts were closed,

 More obstacles were put at the park,making the number of lines endless
 Heavy winds = closed was time to go splitboarding!!! 
 So we had a small offpiste adventure, with Chris and Gerasimos,

can you find our lines?
It was definately a full on boarding weekend.We hope that we helped some of you to choose the best board, that was our main goal anyway!!!!
A huge thanks goes to:MICROXTREME distribution (Gerasimos, George and Nontas for coming all the way from Thessaloniki)
Sophie, Chris Tsanis, Rodrigo, John Papasotiriou, Natassa Georgiou and all of you who gave us a hand, 
 Kalavrita Snowcenter and Mr.Vazaios,  for believing in us and supporting our favourite sport.

FRULITE OnTheGo Park Opening!

It's true, Helmos Mtn got alot snow and things are getting together!
So this weekend is the official opening of the new updated and improved FRULITE OnTheGo snowpark at Kalavrita. There is gonna be a  jam/board demo/party situation so be prepared!!!

We gonna be there, for two days, so come over our tent to meet and check some NITRO, SLASH, JONES boards (splitboards also) and TSG helmets. (please bring some ID)
We know that choosing your next board is not an easy thing, so we're  giving you the opportunity to ride some boards and find the right for you!!!  


New park obstacles

The snowpark at Kalavryta is working great, despite the lack of snow all over Greece and the Balkans.
Last Friday some new obstacles from IOUsnow find they way to the biggest park in Greece, making the number of obstacles bigger than ever before!!!

    The 7m long Down Flat Box is HUUUGE, with some more snow this would be the best jib obstacle by far...
Rail lovers would find this new 6m long doublepipe handrail interesting...!!!
and 2 new Hybrid tools for the hard working shapers

Now we have to wait for more snow and dream our new lines in the park....


Barbie in the Bible!?!

Varvara Mitropoulos also known as Barbie, is the best female rider ever strapped on a snowboard in Greece. Period.
She's been riding in full speed and sick style at Helmos Mtn, since the early 90's. 
here performing a text book Method 

  Now she is riding her Stepchild boards in Aroza/Switzerland but when she's not in the pipe or at the park she hikes all over the Swiss alps with a crew of  locals who are 100% commited to hiking and freeride!
 This crew put out a book, best discribed as the Swiss alps Bible. 
It contains a lot of details, maps and very useful tips if you want to put your skis/splitboards, avalance beacons and hiking boots in serious action!!!
check more here.
      This picture of our Girl is in this "bible''.... Check that smile... priceless!!!!
