OAKLEY AIR & STYLE 2011 BEIJING

04 December 2011, 16.07 | Posted in China Snowboarding | No comments »


Shaun White and Air & Style came back again, this time they bring the top snowboarding event into the National Stadium – Bird’s Nest! most of the audience have never tried snowboarding and they totally have no idea about who is Shaun White, but they are pretty enjoyed the crazy snowboarding trick. Compare with bring the TTR 6 star contest come to China, I think there are more important things we need to do for promoting the snowboarding in China.

JAPAN POWDER – China Snowboarding Crew in Japan

28 April 2011, 16.53 | Posted in China Snowboarding | No comments »

In early March, after a long and hard season of man made snow slope and park riding, six of Mellow Parks Crew went to Niseko for a 6-day “post-season-getting-some-real-snow trip” and it was epic! Four out of six days it DUMPED and the other 2 days it snowed a bit as well. Most of the riders in the crew had never have been in Japan let alone ridden powder so it was a blast. –Steve Zdarsky

Oakley Air & Style Beijing

04 December 2010, 17.26 | Posted in China Snowboarding | No comments »


Thanks for Oakley’s effort to bring the top snowboarding event to Beijing and China! The experience was fantastic! Entering the stadium, I was instantly overwhelmed by the huge ramp that is 42-meter high. All the international riders are among the tops across the globe now, and everyone was spinning crazily in the air like the helicopter airscrew, what completely stunned the audience in such a cold winter night. Before the fierce fight over the Ring of Glory kicked off, local riders were invited to do a jam session. The year of 2010 really hails a good sign for the flourishing of Action Sports in China, with so many big things happened and happening. To name a few, the opening of Woodward, international surfing festivals in Hangzhou and Hainan, and of course, Air & Style tonight. The future seems really exciting and promising, ain’t it?

赛场外最醒目的就是OAKLEY的展棚

这个超大号道具很震撼,出发加速坡有65度!40多米长,但是由于北京最近几天不是很冷,人造的雪还是比较硬。

正是比赛之前是一个表演赛,中国有四位选手参加:小虎,王磊,张伟和Andrew,最终小虎获得表演赛的冠军,赢取了一万元奖金。

Snowboarding的比赛感觉就是各种搅拌机,人人上来就是转体一千多度,转的我头晕眼花

参加比赛的选手来自世界各地,美国,芬兰,德国,日本… …基本都是90后,哎…









场边有大屏幕同步转播比赛,CCTV5也直播了半决赛和决赛

比赛是淘汰制,两人一组,低分淘汰,最终冠军获得一枚冠军戒指


预赛,半决赛,决赛间的休息时段有新裤子乐队的演出

决赛结束后还有就在赛道旁边的体育场内还有一个after party。

感谢OAKLEY把这么牛逼的比赛带到了中国,虽然目前国内的大环境还不是很成熟,这从比赛现场的气氛可以看出来,估计大部分人是冲王力宏去的,没有那种疯狂的感觉,但是毕竟顶级赛事已经来中国了,感谢所以为推动Action Sports在中国发展的品牌和组织,未来一定会更好。

“虎 Am I” Premiere Party

26 October 2010, 14.37 | Posted in China Snowboarding | No comments »


With a hard to find venue we were worried no one would show up for the world premier of ‘Hu Am I?’ – however, the promise of free beer and giveaways must have guided party-goers the whole way, as the place was literally packed out by 8:30pm with the party spilling out onto the street! A big thanks goes out to all those who made it, and don’t worry if you missed out on getting a DVD as we’ll be distributing these through Quiksilver & snowboard stores over the next few weeks, as well as at our own events this winter. Check the full image gallery online here!
