On Sunday, April 17, 2016, the High Fives Foundation will travel to Colorado to host the inaugural Retro Shred-A-thon at Copper Mountain Resort. The event is presented in conjunction with partners GoPro, Smith, FlyLow, Volkl, Marker and Phunkshun Wear.
Last year’s edition saw snowboarder Peetu Piiroinen (FIN) threatening the current height record and skiers David Wise (USA) and Joffrey Pollet-Villard easily shoot above the hip and the 9m tall axe stomping trick after trick. The Suzuki Nine Knights 2016 sets out on a mission to build “The Perfect Hip” and bring along the best transition riders to hone in on innovating hip and transition riding. The new event location in Watles, South Tyrol, Italy will see various sessions running from the 29th of March, leading up to the Public Contest Day on Saturday the 2nd of April 2016.
