The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics put Russia firmly in the snowboarding spotlight and since then, the region has experienced an influx of riders. Part two in the three-part, Russian-made “Ride and Create” series has been released to showcase what some of the country’s best riders can do.
Press Release: After Olympic events back in 2014 the Russian region of Sochi was hit by a real tourist boom, where in the spring time the New Star Camp became a draw for Russian riders. The Nitro Team, who are always camping in spring came here for filming for their new video project, “Ride and Create”. Nice weather with bluebird days, parks, mountains, parties, and an exciting programme of events from Quiksilver alongside a hospitable resort at “Gorky Gorod” with great apartments and infrastructure absolutely killed it.
