Thredbo and Volcom have taken a leaf out of Woodstock’s book and decided to put on a weekend full of peace, love and snowboarding. Time to save the date and plan your sick day because Boardstock 2017 is going down across the weekend of the 15th and 16th of September and it’s set to go off!
The name of the event says it all…this event is all about boardin, boardin’ and more boardin’! Volcom are rounding up their international team of pro snowboarders, surfers and skaters plus their throwing the Goons of Doom in the team van to rock out all weekend long.
It all kicks off at the Thredbo Skatepark on Friday the 15th of September from 3pm where the Volcom team including Jackson Pilz, will put on a skate demo and BBQ for everyone to come and check out.
All the action will then move to the Schuss Bar for a movie and photo exhibition night plus a team signing session, showcasing Volcom’s core contribution to snowboarding from the very beginning…get ready to take a trip down stoke lane…oh and Terje Haakonsen will be in attendance.
Following on from Friday night, Antons Terrain Park is the place to be on Saturday from 10am with a purpose built park for everyone to enjoy a day of non-stop shredding. This isn’t just a typical day out shredding though…why? Well, Volcom’s heavy hitting international snow team will all be in attendance and available to ride with and high five all day, plus there’s over $10K in prizes and giveaways to be won and heaps of specially built features for everyone to enjoy.
Sydney’s favourite surf rock band, The Goons of Doom and Blister are swapping the boardies for beanies and are putting on a surf set at the Bistro from 5pm to warm up the masses before the after party kicking off from 9pm in the Keller Bar.
Head up the Gunbarrel Chairlift over to the Antons Terrain Park from 9am – 4pm to participate in the FREE event. It’s all about peace, love and snowboarding!
