Jibbing in Copenhagen!

Hello Jibbers!

 

If you are reading this post, I assume that you are interested in freestyle sports, freeski, snowboard, freestyle culture, and maybe you live in a country full of mountains, snow, snowparks, snow pistes? LUCKY YOU! Appreciate what you have!
If you are not from such a country and you came up here, you are probably from Denmark, and you understand our “pain”.

We all can see great ski/snowboard/freestyle riders and crews (we could count for ages…); constantly popping out news and great extreme movies from our neighbors, Norway, Sweden and the Alps and of course the BIG U S A and Canada.
What about us, what about Denmark? Even though the highest mountain Møllehøj (ok, mountain – is a little bit aggressive word :-) ) is at 170 meters (561ft) over the sea level, we do not have ski pistes, ski resorts, and snow is really random here, but it does not mean that we cannot continue our passions to freestyle winter sports!

So here we Come again! In the form of reportage, photo-journals, edits, documentaries, Danish Jibland Crew – we will bring you closer possibilities, our creative times, journeys and how do we cope with such issue: OF NOT HAVING mountains and snow in DENMARK!
We just want to share with our joy of JIBBING, while jealously looking at all these sick riders from abroad… hehe.


DENMARK BLOG #1// COPENHAGEN // Underground Jib Arena

We are so glad and excited that in late 2010 Copenhagen (Underground.dk) invested in a wooden, sloping platform, from which you can get some speed and end up in front of one of 3 boxes (at the moment) to perform your sick tricks. It is totally a FREE place, open for anyone, with even installed lights on the top of the platform, so you can shred until late night!

Curious what do we mean by that, check out our video Blog 1:

Are you soon in CPH, you need to check out how do we ride here: http://www.facebook.com/underground.jib.arena
So that was it! Blog 1 from Denmark.
We hope that just little snow will visit our country, so we could be more creative and make new Video Blogs, from this flat-LAND!

PS: Many thanks to all wonderful people & sponsors who organized, created and contributed to
Underground Jib Arena in Copenhagen.

Thanks to DOWNDAYS.EU, Københavns SKIKLUBSkiers.dk and all inspirational people around us!

Share the video with the world, let us tell our story, and enjoy where you live!
