Carnival Snowboard Session Rijeka 2012
Snowboarding by the sea

On January 28, the Gat Karoline Riječke pier will be hosting another interesting snowboarding event: the Carnival Snowboard Session, with some of Europe's leading snowboarders and a packed entertainment programme. A truly unique atmosphere is guaranteed, for where else in the world can you enjoy snowboarding right by the sea?!

Rijeka's Snowboard Club Nine this year again is organising an interesting snowboarding event right by the sea: the Carnival Snowboard Session. This one-day competition will take place on January 28 at the Gat Karoline Riječke pier, and will include participation of some of the best Croatian and European snowboarders. Lots of fun is guaranteed for all spectators interested in this attractive winter sport.

What makes this competition so special are not only attractive snowboarding tricks, but also the venue: there are not many coastal towns in the world that boast such an attractive winter event organised right by the sea. The organisers expect many spectators who will also have the opportunity to enjoy cool snowboarding tricks even before the start of the competition, because watching the training is also an interesting experience. 100 cubic metres of snow will be brought to the pier to form a trail 40 metres long and eight metres wide.

The opening ceremony starts after 1 p.m. and will be followed by trainings and two qualifying rounds. Local hip-hoppers Filip Motovunski & Rahmanee will entertain the audience from 4 to 7.30 p.m., and the concert will be followed by the finals. This part will surely be viewed by thousands of spectators – those who come early enough will have the opportunity to enjoy the competition from a distance of only few metres.
After the competition there will be a concert by Croatia's best known hip-hoppers, Connect from Zagreb, and The Beat Fleat aka TBF from Split. For those who want even more, there will be an after party in Rijeka's famous Stereo Dvorana club.
