Last Friday saw the monthly Parkstrife night at Snozone Milton Keynes taken over by none other than the awesome crew from FBBB.

The night took riding back to exactly what it should be about – having fun with your buddies. It may have been one of the first sunny pre-summer Friday nights of the year, but riders who knew where the fun was to be had headed to Snozone MK for what turned out to be one of the top dome nights of the year so far.

With DJ Chico laying down the soundtrack for the night, the event took the form of just having fun. There were spot prizes handed out to anyone who was throwing down their best, no matter how big their best was, keeping every rider of every level stoked all night, as well as laden with sweet swag from the likes of Westbeach, Celtek, DC and Salomon.

There were incredible features for all abilities to hit, on a perfect setup from the parkstrifeblog crew, and sessions filmed on the immensely cool flying camera.

FBBB’s very own Mikee gave us the lowdown on the night: “It was about taking things back to when we first started - all out fun jam (no comp), photo/video sessions with spot prize giveaways. Sponsored riders get nothing as these events are to encourage people to just have fun and progress in their riding whilst getting some shots.”

What’s more, fun in riding comes from pushing yourself to get better at what you love to do, and Grounded Freestyle Coaching’s Dave Seeley was on hand to provide top quality coaching all night on the freestyle features.

Dave told us: “The FBBB Parkstrife was a perfect night for me. There was a great set up for riders of all levels so I did a bit of free coaching for anyone who was interested and then spent the rest of the time riding. It was nice to be at an event that is not comp based so people can just ride for fun.”

And if that all wasn’t enough, Salomon were on hand with all their 2013/2014 Salomon and Nikita boards for everyone to get their paws on before we even begin to smell the start of next season.

Salomon’s James Fuller chatted to us after the event: “The FBBB takeover was great with a brilliant turnout. The whole event had a great vibe with really positive feedback for us on the product – particularly the shadow fit bindings series, Villain, Sabotage, Drift and Gypsy boards, as well as the new line from Nikita snowboards. The park setup was really good and it was great to support some grass roots stuff at the dome.”

Highlights from Mikee were “all the smiles on people’s faces, people getting some free GFC tips, the AR parrot drone flying around and just chilled vibes. Thanks to Salomon for the demo and goodies, as well as Westbeach, Celtek and DC. Props to parkshaperblog crew for the fun park and dirtycheeks for music and misterbatlow for some live visual art which got claimed at the end of the night. The kicker was also pretty fun as you could really send it!”

Snozone’s Thom Boddington was stoked on the night, and is already looking forward to the next FBBB takeover. “My highlight of the night was seeing Neil flying the FBBB drone camera around the slope filming people shredding the features. It was a nice chilled night can’t wait for round 2 on August 2nd.”
