Ästhetiker Jäm: Wängl Tängl 2010 (13-Jan-10)

Mayrhofen, Tyrolean, January 13, 2010 - From 10th to 13th of March the mother ship

Mayrhofen, 10-13 March 2010

From 10th to 13th of March the mother ship of all Ästhetiker Jams, the Wängl Tängl will take place for the 8th time in the Tyrolean town of Mayrhofen. As known from the Ä Jams, Freestyle Snowboarding on the highest level with the top international Riders can be seen in an especially modified snow park.

The Vans Penken Park is rearranged in a very special manner for the Wängl Tängl to make everyone go crazy! Accordingly the ‘Red Bull Endsection’ is constructed every year as a worldwide unique obstacle. In the Snowboard Gäng Jäm the teams are battling in a slopestyle format for fame and honour. Down in the valley there are artists at work dealing with Photography, Streetart, Poetry Slams and various other aesthetical activities for young people. No Ästhetiker Jam without a Skate Jam! At the Gäme of Skate everyone can take part and show off the best tricks. The nightly Ästhetiker Parties are known for a very chilled atmosphere with exceptional music line-ups consisting of Austrian and international acts.  Notorious are the Ä-Parties as the laid back beginnings always end up in an unforgettable festivity where everyone parties harder then anywhere else! Besides the official program, the visitors can enjoy the diversity of the ‘Zillertaler Alps’ to satisfy their personal hunger for powder. As every year powder snow arrives for the date of the Wängl Tängl just as if it was ordered beforehand!   

About ‘die Ästhetiker...’: Mäde in Austria!

A crew of young boardsports enthusiasts from all parts of Austria unites at the beginning of the nineties to realise that besides their passion for ‘shredding’, their attitude towards life absolutely corresponds. To express this point of view, a crew is founded and every member writes the crew´s name ‘die Ästhetiker…’ on their snow, skate and surfboards. Meanwhile fifteen winters have passed and snowboarding reached a ‘grown up’ status. The big hype is gone, everything is organized and focused – structured training is what it’s about with a corresponding evaluation afterwards! So what happened to the ‚Ästhetiker’ in these recent times? While a few ended their active career, others are still fully on the throttle; Steve Gruber for instance who had the title of the vice world halfpipe champion in 1999 is still filming his video parts every year – only now on his very own Ästhetiker Snowboard, the ‘Gruba Libre’! Wolle Nyvelt received a sensational recognition in 2008 with the ‘Transworld Snowboarding Rider of the Year’ award. The biggest honour for a snowboarder nowadays went herewith for the first time to Austria! And amongst other things, Wolle came up with a complete innovation: his self made ‘ÄSMO Powsurfers’, which are boards ridden in powder snow without bindings! That’s how the crew evolved to a small core brand besides the mainstream perceptions, a ‘think tänk’ for innovative ideas and products from Austria. Besides the production of snowboards, a small streetwear label takes care of the necessary output for ideas in the fashion design segment.
