The Longboard Classic is the largest longboard and old-school snowboarding event in the world and totally unique: Since 1999, hundreds of fans have the pilgrimage to Stuben am Arlberg to experience the Woodstock of snowboarding, the “Longboard Classic”. Whether young boarders, old foxes or snowboard profis from all over the world – nowhere else is the spirit of snowboarding celebrated more authentically than in Stuben at the Longboard Classic. Over 400 mad-keen snowboarders regularly take place in the race and start in the three categories “LBC Master”, “LBC Old School” and “LBC No School” from Albonagrat over an elevation gain of 1001 meters to Stuben.
Being a part of the spectacle is just as important as the sporting side of things. In order to round proceedings off properly, longboards and current freeride equipment of select companies can be tested on site. The Longboard is somewhat longer than a freeride board to give a lot of lift in deep snow. In Stuben, legends such as Chuck Barfoot, Terry Kidwill, Mike Jacoby, Shawn Farmer, Mike Basich, Dani KIWI Meier, Peter Bauer and many others could already be welcomed. The events with several hundred participants not only generate considerable interest among the public and a lot of action, the music also gets the audience rocking on every occasion. April 1, 2017 is D day and the 18th LBC opens officially in Stuben.
