Although demo ramps are pretty far removed from most peoples normal riding environment, they are a great way of wowing the public with the sport. Through the medium of jaw-dropping aerial maneuvres, we get to witness poetry in motion; rotations, inverted flips, corked spins, and (with the occasional wince) sketchy landings & stacks. The riders show off their courage & skills and buzz off the crowds, pushing themselves and each other further, giving the spectators a truly awesome show…
So here we present a collection of mountainboard freestyle public displays & demonstrations from around the world…
