    Together with the Blue Tomato team riders, the QParks media crew recently set out to hold a very special shooting. The result of this symbiosis was not only premium shred action, but also some spectacular Octocopter footage, showing you the Superpark Planai from a new perspective.

    Having a handful of pro riders in the park you created is, of course, a very special occasion for the local shapers. Gabo Spalek and Jacco Bos, part of the Superpark Planai shape crew, hence insisted on introducing ‘their’ Superpark Planai to the pros themselves. Among the freeskiers, Blue Tomato team rider Martin Hauck brought along the rookie Samuel Rettensteiner, as well as Steve Gröbner and newcomer Josef Steger.

    After a few short warm-up runs, the session on the pro kicker line of the Superpark Planai started. The second jump on the pro line – with a 16m table – basically functioned as a set-up jump for the real highlight, the “Big Mama”, and its 22m table on the last roller. After the pro kicker session, the crew went over to the jib and rail features of the Superpark and decided to rip the stairset downrail into pieces. In a park with almost 40 obstacles, top-to-bottom follow runs are, of course, a must-do and a great opportunity to show the park in its glorious entirety.

    Enough said already, now go and see yourself what went down that day and watch the video and photo footage. Just click on the link and you directly get to the freeski highlight-clip featuring spectacular aerial footage. Along with the clip, you can also find a great freeski photo gallery. Additionally, the stunning footage from the octocopter drone presents the Superpark Planai from an angle you have never seen it before. Enjoy!

    If you now got the itch to visit the Superpark Planai with your shred buddies, you can still do so until April 12th. A good occasion would be the Chill & Grill session on April 5th, where all Superpark shred heads will bid the winter farewell in bright sunshine and with a tasty BBQ. On the website and on Facebook you see what the current setup looks like and what else is happening in the Superpark Planai right now – check it out!
