HUNGARY MOUNTAINBOARD FESTIVAL
“On 22-23rd May there was an event in Budapest called 4th Big Sport-selector day. The aim was to provide testing and informing possibility to children and adult people who are looking for sporting possibilities and also a chance for people to meet the representatives of the sports. More than 90 sports showed up and during the two days approx 16,500 people visited the event. I can say the Hungarian Mountainboard Club did its best – our beloved sport was very popular. Most of the time children tried the boards but sometimes our riders made small shows by trying jumps and tricks. Even famous people tried mountainboarding like Ronald McDonald. More pictures of the event (mountainboard, skimboard, girls and party) are HERE.”
