FBBB present Gap Nation at Hemel Hempstead

Hemel Hempstead once again hosted the return of  Gap Nation, the indoor Snowboard event presented by For Boarders By Boarders. With the Hemel park crew consistently building the best kickers in the country, it was always going to be an awesome event. With the idea behind the event being you gap onto every feature (Gap Nation…get it?) there were transfers and spin-ons galore. The comp also saw the return of the Wicked Camper Van to the course design which Si Cudlip, Ollie Dutton and Faye Young were more than happy to huck over.

The competition was split into an Under 16 category and a 16+ category, giving the wee rippers a chance to showcase their skills. With a great turnout (over 90 riders!) competing in an open jam format the vibe was nice and relaxed. There were smiles all round with the pros pitching in with the beginners and helping everyone pretty much have fun!
