A Snow Trip to a powder paradise
17 February – 2 March 2008
Guided by a passion and desire for discover, four snowboarders from the Rip Curl Pro Team will set out in Search of undiscovered powder and unmatched adventure: Abkhazia.
A self-proclaimed Republic of 8,600km2, bordered to the north by Russia and to the south by Georgia, Abkhazia is split in two by the immense Caucasus mountain range and lies open to the Black Sea. The contrast between lagoons, palm-trees, huge beaches and snow-covered slopes offers up many unexpected opportunities…

The winner will buddy up with the team riders Darius Heristchian, Rémi Lamazouère, Per Løken and newcomer Nils Arvidsson, and these four riders will also be the jury that will pick the candidates.
You will be part of the team, and heliboarding, backcountry kickers, photos and filming sessions will be the main activities.
You want to be part of it? The selection consists of two stages:
- Firstly upload photos and videos of yourself to ripcurl.tv, riding, partying with your friends, taking your dog for a walk… The latter two might not help you get on the trip, come to think of it.
Then you cross your fingers and hope the pros watch and like your video and select you up for the second part, which is…
- The 5 best riders selected by the jury will be invited to take part in the Crans Montana Champs presented by Rip Curl, from the 4th until the 8th of February 2008. The best 2 riders from this slopestyle contest will fly the following week to Abkhazia with the team riders.
