2007 might have been the worst winter ever in our mountains, we still had a lot of fun riding and updating this blog, always doing our best to bring you closer to the European snowboarding action day after day!
We hope you enjoyed it and we want to thank our readers for supporting us and interacting with us during this past 6 months.
Thanks also to all the people who played the game: the riders, the film crews, the photographers, the press agencies, the young bloods, the brands, all the people we got in contact with.
Everybody has been so friendly. And this experience reminds us that snowboarding is such a FAMILY.
We are going to close http://www.snowbroader.eu now but we will be back in October 2007 to bring you once again all the news, and reviews on the European snowboarding action!
Of course we will try to come back stronger with cooler content and (maybe) a nicer site look and feel, so please give us your feedback or ideas about what you think we can improve.
Have a great summer!
Great! A new website where you’ll find high quality and stylish pics of snowboard.

Free your mind and have a look at the 22 landscapes, the 26 portraits and the 36 snowboard shots!!! But as ever, you wont find any pics of the Miss, so here is her gun and a bit of her shoulder. Sexy insn’t it ?

Head out to Switzerland for some of the best snowboard summer camps in Europe!
Super active on the scene are the Demonium Masta camps providing summer camps from late June until early August in Saas Fee and Les 2 Alpes (France). Each week-long package is around 600 euro, which includes coaching, full board ludging and a skipass for six days.
Also don’t forget about the Iceripper camps which have been going on since years and offer top facilities and coaching on the famous Titlis glacier!
This is a short short video that we shot during the ISPO 07 showing you in a glimpse the whole 2007/08 Forum snowboard range.
It’s short, colorful and straight to the point. 😉
Spending a summer in Norway is a dream come true for a lot of dudes.
Make it happen and bring together two of the best things in life: beautiful girls and snowboarding?!
This year, camps will be better than ever with more activities, more pro riders, more suprises but keeping the same laid back attitude that makes this the camp with soul…
For all you guys and girls who are already thinking about what you will want to ride next season, check out those two short video presentations with 2008 snowboards from Allian and Gnu.
The girly freestyle range is composed of the Vivian serie (138-142-145-148) in the high end, while the Freedom serie (136-142-146-150-154) is offering the best prices.
Girls will be happy with this easy riding B-nice serie (144-147-150-153). All mountain freestyle boards from entry level to rippers who want to look at the whole mountain as their park. Available in regular and smooth riding Magne-traction.75. The nice design is from Fumi Watanabe.
Hey, it’s really time to quit the ride for this year and concentrate on the beach, but for addicts out there who didn’t get enough days on the slopes or want to practise new tricks in the best conditions, we decided to prepare a quick round-up of Summer camps which will be held in Europe. Today we start with the camps in Les 2 Alpes!
All lot of snowboard companies have developped the “mini-me” snowboard these past season. These boards are super playfull and taking them out for a day gives a completly different feeling to a regular snowboard day. When we met Darius last time, he was rocking the new 2007/08 Nidecker Nano and that’s what he had to say about it:
Want-ette is fruity, fresh and clean with light notes of fig, Love-ette is feminine, soft, sweet and light with a touch of iris. Why not end up the season in style with a nice perfume from Les ettes?
Les Ettes and BrOADER have teamed up to make 3 lucky girls – or guys who want to make a nice gift to their girlfriends – the happy winners of an exclusive bottle of Want-ette or Love-ette!
To take part in the draw it’s super simple! Just fill in the form below and in the comment box give us the name of 2 of the sexy sweet riders on the Les Ettes team as well as your age, favorite hobbies, and nationality.
Best of luck!
