Why do you come to Voss to participate at the Ekstremsportveko year after year?
I like the Vossamood and the people. I meet pure joy and great friends every year. There is always some good stuff to do. You don`t need sunshine at Voss to have funf. If the weather suck, you can have a great party with friends. If the weather is perfect: you go out raging in the beautiful nature around Nærøyfjorden.
The atmosphere at Voss is great!!
What is your favourite spot at Voss?
My favourite is not located at middle of Voss, but we opened a new exit we called “Skjerpings” in 2013. Great, safe jump, flying pass huge waterfalls. That is one of the most beautiful jumps I have ever done.
I also enjoy our “secret” spot at the river. Hanging out with good friends and enjoy some cold beers.
