The Freaks are back!
From 14th to 20th of March the European mecca of snowboarding Mayrhofen will be on
fire! Back once again for the 7th year running, this unprecedented combination of boardsports,
art and music, the Ästhetiker Wängl Tängl is on.
The format of this years contest in the Vans Penken Park is a “Gäng Jam” – a crew contest where teams of
three riders compete against each other. The best team will take home the majority of the prize money
and, as if this wasn’t enough, to the individual rider of the comp, Suzuki gives a stylish Suzuki DR125SM
For the first time ever the qualification will be open for everyone provided they enter in a team of three.
Three weeks before the event, the Vans Penken Park will be modified accordingly with countless man
hours and all kinds of heavy duty machinery. Once again the piece de resistance will be the Red Bull end
section and as per usual will require some pretty tech bowl riding skills from all entrants!
The Ästhetiker Skateboard Jäms are always focal points for the Austrian scene and demonstrate the
affinity between the two boardsports. This year numerous Austrian skate stars will be joined by various
international Pro Skaters from the Carhartt and Vans Teams. Once again the bombastic atmosphere of the
event combined with the caliber of the massive Mega-Miniramp will set Mayrhofen alight.
Contemporary youth culture has always been relevant for the Ästhetiker and so they are going to set up
special sessions for the various invited artists which are going to be very similar to the format of the board
contests. For the final party the Ästhetiker invited two true heavyweights of New York Hip Hop to throw
down with Austrias own Waxolutionists-Live-Band. Its gonna go off!
The contributing artists have a national and international background and are eager to work together. This
year the Pow-Surfers of Wolle Nyvelt will be the canvas for the artworks. Pow-Surfers are specially
shaped boards designed to be ridden in the deep snow without bindings.
The various concerts and parties will be the icing on the cake for this year’s event. Last year the Poetry
Slam was exceptionally good, and so the guys are cooking up a special one of a kind evening which no
guest should miss out on!
