Thousands of extreme sport enthusiasts and spectators from across Europe are expected to gather at this year’s Xperience09 Festival, in North Tyneside. The festival, which is in its second year, is a weekend of extreme sports action in Tynemouth on Saturday 24 – Sunday 25, October, 2009.
We have reported on this already but thought it worth reminding all you extreme sports enthusiasts to make a note of it in your diary. This is to be a weekend of surfing, snowboarding, BMX, skateboarding and more.
Surfers from around the world will compete for prize money and tour points in the UKPSA’s North East Surf Open, which is part of the UK Triple Crown of Surfing.
A massive Big Top will also feature a half pipe and skatepark. Some of the best UK snowboarders and skiers will demonstrate their skills as they catch some serious air on the specially built ramps. There will be full commentary, the chance to find out more about the sport and the opportunity to try out the snow tubing ramp for free.
The MBS Big Air Mountainboard Show has been confirmed as part of the line up and the team will be performing their backflips, spins and frontflips on the demo ramp. There will also be mountainboard ‘have a go’ sessions where people will be given the opportunity to try out mountainboarding and receive instruction from ATBA qualified instructors.
There will be beatboxing and DJ’s, graffiti artists and circus workshops… This is a guaranteed weekend of fun for anyone who has ever aspired to do an extreme sport but not yet got round to it…
Activities taught and displayed will include tight wire, trapeze, aerial silks, acrobalance, acrobatics, unicycling, juggling and hula hooping. Also featuring will be Australia’s award winning ‘Flame Oz’ showcasing their internationally acclaimed fire performance talents and some of the best unicyclists in the UK will be exhibiting high level trick and obstacle course riding all on one wheel.
Spectators will be able to join in on the action and learn from the very best in the business. With over 20 years of experience in extreme sports, Team Extreme, the organisers of the event, will not disappoint with this one.
The competition and event opens at 10 and ends at 5 both days.
