The 30 best snowboarders in the world attended Beijings third Air & Style competition last saturday. There were 2 Finnish guys among the competitors but neither won. Almost all the best snow boarders were Nordic, winner was a Swede. Had a friend who contacted me asking if I wanted to work at the event. Why not, VIP tickets and chance to meet the best snowboarders in the world and also free pass all around the whole birds nest stadium.

The Aquarium, also used in 2008 olympics
First price for this competition was 100.000 USD! Great show but was SOOOOO cold to stand out the whole day in sneakers. Fun rest of the night at Migas with the crew.
