‘Piststilin’ is Swedish for ‘slopestyle’ don’t you know. Guess what this is all about then. That’s right, Rip Curl and Skullcandy are supporting this TTR 3 star jobby that goes down as an awesome festival style comp over a few days at the back end of the season (27th april -5th may) up at Ramundberget in Sweden. All the info is on their web page which is just here but this promises to be a fun week of jibbing and stomping as the course designers (Jonas Lodin and Krister Persson) have a CV including ‘The Battle’ and the ‘Wiig Invitational’.
Its not just a huge trick orgy however and there will be tunes from top Swedish and UK djs including Sonic Syndicate, Looptroop Rockers, DJ Kid Sid, NTRL TLNT (all Swedish) and Urban Knights (UKish). I can’t speak for the swedish dudes (although I’m sure they will kick ass) but the Bristol based Urban Knights are a wicked DVJ (that means they do live visuals with the music, classy) duo that are doing a tour of Europe at the moment and have graced many a sick gig over here, including the London Freeze.
All in all looks like it could be a good week. ANy one interested in competing all the qualifying details are on the Piststilen website.
