The Metro Ski & Snowboard Show opened today, London, Olympia. I’ve got to say that the first I’d heard of it was in this month’s WhiteLines, which is strange given that it’s a huge show. After checking out what’s on, I’m really intruiged. In fact, I’m heading down there this weekend.
I’ve decided to combine the London visit with some Friday night jibbing at Castleford. I’ll hit Xscape first and then continue on down to London, ready to see the show on Saturday. It’s gonna be tight, but what the hell. After all, with the season knocking on the door, the more snowboarding action I can get the better.
The strange part was the headline title “does snowboarding get boring“? My initial thoughts were hell-no! But perhaps in 20 years I’ll think differently. But what do you think?
The quarter pipe setup sounds pretty impressive, so I’m really looking forward to see that. I’m also stoked that Blue Tomato are going to be at the show; I really value them as an online shop having always had good service, so I’ll be checking them out in person. What’s more, it seems that I’ll get a chance to see this year’s ChunkyKnit film, sweet.
In fact it all looks good. I’m just gonna walk around and soak it all in.
