Snowboard Arena MMXI

Mike Casanova (USA) and Ana Rumiha (CRO) takes first place in Zagreb, Croatia at the Snowboard Arena MMXI

Thanks to artificial snow made from ice skating hall Zagreb, the Croatian capital had for a week end a snowboard park in town. Hundreds of people saw the spectacular show thanks to rail jam contest. Some of them had chance to see this sport for the first time in their life.

Box, rail, wall, there was no difference between boys and girls, especially for our well known snowboard girl Ana Rumiha from Zagreb. With clean lipslide to front board out she proved that she could join the men competition. She was followed by Anja Štefan from Rijeka who definitively proved her skills through whole day. On the third place was Mateja Kordić from Slovenia.

In men category Mike Casanova (USA) impressed judges with his front 180 in cab 360 out and front blind 450 out. For the first time in Croatia visitors could see winner of Nike 6.0 Stairset battle in Munich at Air & Style. I think he was happy to see us taking 1000 Euro cash prize. Second place was kept for Seppi Scholler from Austria and on third place was Nejc Ferjan from Slovenia who showed his unique style landing 270’s in pressing rail 270’s out.
