KnK FUN FUN FUN from maga mcwhinnie on Vimeo.
We drove for a long time from Kozakov and arrived really late at night mobbing down in our new car down all the hairpins, we were frothing!!! We set up camped in the dark and started hearing very familiar voices running towards us. I was really happy to meet up again with a great friend Ishtar and the super lovely Gloria.

I really wish we could organize more freeride events like this in Australia, more often!!!
We left a day before the event finished and went to ride the Italian Alps to the famous roads we went last year and discovered new roads and amazing looking towns on top of the Italian mountains.
We reached the Swiss boarder and reached the less busy mountain passes on our way to Jolandas's "DH Playground" . We set up camp really dark at night after skating loads of amazing roads and eating nice Rissotos. Everyday we woke with glorious views of snowy picks, perfect build roads and waterfalls around us (our showers) , it felt like Paradise. Jolanda's Pass was so fast, long, technical with gnarly pitch black tunnels and waterfalls. It was worth going there and we will definitely come back!!! No wonder she skates the way she does!
Switzerland is a Downhill skateboarding paradise!
