Xavier De le Rue as 2013 WSD Ambassador

WSF supported the WSD since the beginning and it’s now time to plan together the 8th edition and make it bigger and wider than ever.

EuroSIMA, the World Snowboard Federation and Outdoor Sports Valley, in partnership with SnowSports Industries America, Core Power Asia and TTR Pro Snowboarding, are proud to announce that the 8th edition of World Snowboard Day will take place on Sunday, December 22nd, 2013.

This is once again the opportunity to discover, for free, snowboarding as a sport and culture across the world’s summits. As of today more 39 events have already been registered in no less than 17 different countries! The goal for this year is to surpass the 152 events and 35 host countries from 2012.

Whether a beginner or an expert rider, you will be able to take advantage of the wide variety of activities organized on this day (snowboard lessons, equipment tests, demonstrations, meeting pro riders, concerts and much more) in a festive and friendly atmosphere all around the world.

The WSD website, www.world-snowboard-day.com received a facelift. New features were added and navigation from one page to another made easy. As with every year, there is a dedicated area within the site for organizers. Don’t waste another minute to register your event.

This year we are once again lucky enough to work with a world- renowned rider. After the charismatic Anne-Flore Marxer in 2012, Xavier De Le Rue, currently recognized as the best freeride snowboarder on the planet, happily agreed to be the ambassador for this 8th edition.
This lifelong mountain enthusiast, with an extensive list of impressive accomplishments, wholeheartedly accepted to be ambassador for WSD, explaining that, “It is a good thing to have an international event that brings together everyone from the snowboarding world; it is an honor to be ambassador for this day where snowboarders across the planet will go out riding at the same time to celebrate our sport.”

For World Snowboard Day, it is also a great honor to have the best freeride snowboarder on the planet by our side!
Xavier has left everyone a message in the all-new teaser for World Snowboard Day!
