Summer Gravity Camps
(SGC) is excited to announce the new partnership with Acrobag for the 2011 camp season. The Acrobag is an advanced airbag system that allows riders to safely master air-awareness and jumping techniques in a controlled environment.
“SGC is the premier freeride MTB camp and Acrobag has trained some of the world’s top action sports athletes, therefore aligning ourselves is a natural fit for one another. New limits will be reached in Whistler this summer!” says Marc-André Tarte from Acrobag.
All visiting campers will be able to train with exclusive access to the Acrobag with the world’s top freeride athletes, rubbing shoulders with coaches like Brandon Semenuk, Cam Zink and Cam & Tyler McCaul.
Brandon Semenuk talks about his first encounter with the Acrobag: "The first airbags I had a chance to test were far from the perfect practice tool. It was like jumping into a trampoline, the air had nowhere to go, except for back at you. My thoughts were quickly changed once I tried the AcroBag. AcroBag is the future of training for action sports. It is safe, movable, weather-proof and it can handle big impacts”
“We’ve been in the market for an airbag for some time now as we recognize the inherent benefits of using airbags as a training utility. Everything from being able to effortlessly walk off the airbag, to the controlled air-release mechanism, makes the Acrobag an ideal tool for SGC, where safety and progression go hand in hand” says Andrew Shandro, SGC Camp Director.
In addition to the Acrobag, SGC will be providing access to the airdome everyday of camps. The Acrobag will be located at the top of the Red Bull Joyride Slopestyle course next to the mulch jump.
The Founder of Acrobag started the Airbag movement in 2009 by selling the first airbag. Acrobag now offers their products and services worldwide. Check out Acrobag at http://www.acrobag.org
