12/21/2009

Capbreton, France (December 21, 2009) — 32 countries, 133 events, hundreds of free activities to discover snowboarding, and parties all night long!! This was the program of this 4th edition of the World Snowboard Day which brought together tens of tousands people all over the world on Sunday, December 20th!!

The event enabled beginners and confirmed snowboarders to enjoy free initiations, demos, products testing, riders signings, concerts and parties. And this has been possible thanks to the efforts and energy of all the international snowboarding community (clubs, shops, brands, riders, federations…), but also thanks to the WSF (World Snowboard Federation) and EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association, www.eurosima.com) which have been coordinating the event since 4 years already.

We would like to thank all our partners and all the local organizers without whom the World Snowboard Day could not have taken place, and become so successful in so little time! And of course, we invite you all to join us again on Sunday, December 19, 2010 to celebrate together the 5th edition of the World Snowboard Day.
