Valdez, Alaska – October 22, 2012 – The World Freeride Festival & Flow Tailgate Alaska is pleased to announce a new partnership with ISPO MUNICH to create a Freeride exposition at the 2013 ISPO MUNICH trade show 3-6 February 2013 — titled: Tailgate ISPO — World Freeride Expo.
Tailgate ISPO – World Freeride Expo is all about the freeride spirit that has shaped snowboarding since day one: getting out to slash powder. It takes successful educational elements from Flow Tailgate Alaska, adds new freeride innovations, and will be a rallying point at the ISPO MUNICH trade show for freeride snowboarding enthusiasts.
“We are excited to bring some of the energy of Alaska to the world’s most exciting sporting goods trade show for the next 3 years.” says Tailgate ISPO — World Freeride Expo partner Rasmus Ostergaard.
With freeride riding as diverse as ever, Tailgate ISPO — World Freeride Expo unites all different aspects of this snowboarding and lifestyle theme: equipment and unique board designs, safety aspects, travel operators, publications or events all dedicated to push the level further. Tailgate ISPO – World Freeride Expo is a platform for those companies and individuals that breathe the Freeride life: brands with their latest products riding and safety, organizers, travel companies, riders and publishers all unite to present their developments and stories.
Daily activities include educational clinics, presentations, legends’ stories and more — all organized around a central campfire that links the presented brands and projects together in the A1 Hall (THE most important place to be at ISPO MUNICH).
The World Freeride Festival & Tailgate Alaska also plays host to the world-renowned Flow Tailgate Alaska and the Flow World Freeride Championship — held each spring on Thompson Pass, in Valdez, Alaska. See www.tailgatealaska.com for more information.
To take part as an exhibitor, let us know as soon as possible, as space is limited and the deadline is the 30th of November.
Tailgate Alaska was formed in 2008 by Mark Sullivan (founder of SNOWBOARD magazine, and former editor of Snowboarder Magazine.) Held annually on Thompson Pass (Valdez, AK) at the bush pilot airstrip. Tailgate Alaska is brought to you by Flow Snowboarding, Alaskan Brewing, Black Bear Energy, Voile USA, Trew Gear and Dye Snow.
