SKEOSD Snow Kite Rail Jam Östersund, Sweden
Video from a snow kite rail event attracting people from all over Sweden. A big pile of obstacles was built and hit under the SKEOSD event 3-6 of March. The event was more of hang out than a competition, with clinics, photo sessions and nice little events to attract more people into hitting rails and improve the style of snow kiteboarding.
There was a decent price table and a Infärno Kiteräjs (race) was run. Johan took the first place on his Ozone Zephyr. Also a king and queen of freestyle was choosen among the riders, Henning Sandström and Fanny Tivenius was the riders choice.
The snow kite park opened in beginning of February and will be open until the 1st of April, Everyone is welcome, those who hit their first rail to the regular shredders. There are over ten different features so grab a train or a flight to Östersund and enjoy the rest of the season on the biggest snow kite playground out there!
Thanks to Simon Jaktlund and Mattias Cronskär for putting together a such a nice event!
