Curtains fell for the 4th Parkoluna snowboard fest, and all the "brave" dudes that despite the bad forecast, show up at the event, got the best of everything, sunny weather, good snowboarding, good vibe, and finally a crazy good after party.
For all the rest of you can check the photos from your PC to see what you missed.
Friday's night light rain turned to "Blue Bird" skies next morning and after the 2nd Riders meeting and the welcome of the Ninja Squad crew that they drove 7 hours all the way from Sofia (BG), riders and shapers went out to the park for a final checkup. After an hour another team from Bitola (FYROM) arrived and the event started with 1st line at the quarter and hip, 2nd at the kickers and finally the jib line.
The 44 entries pushed the event until 4:30 with main high-lights the double backflip of Vasko Gorgiev, who won the “best trick” with a Go Pro Hero 3 and the very good appearance of the "rookie" Karpouzas Xristos who was competing face to face with the big guys.
After the event the judge job was really hard because of the 1st and 2nd places were almost tight between Badios Spiros and Stanimir Semov, the same went with the 3rd and 4th riders between Plytas Nikos and Karpouzas Marios, the exact same situation came up with the girls between Maria and Pela.
Until the results was released the Red Bull Ollie contest set-up was ready and all the lights were on Migos Kostis, Plytas Nikos and Noe competing with the bar set up at 160cm high. Kostis made it first and walked away with 250 euros in his pocket, not bad for a half hour job!
Awards ceremony and #putanaola party right after for the party animals, all together with sessions at the mini park in front of the Chalet 1850 until early in the morning.

Surf ImagesImages and sequence shoots of friends, surfing at Kalamitsi beach break. Friday was a rainy and cold day but the waves were good enough to jump in the water and play around. When the sessions comes to an end, the bbq fantasy starts bothering some people. Have you ever tasted a village sausage including orange zest in it? AMAZING!By Aris Kiorpes with 2291 views and 0 comments.4.333335
