KnK Longboard Camp 2018
Important Event Information
Here’s some important information. Please, read this through to find out what’s provided by the event organisers, what kind of protection gear is required and similar.
Required protection gear
Leather suit is not required but it’s highly recommended for beginners.
Make sure to have a full downhill protection on; full face helmet, slide gloves, knee pads, elbow pads, back protection…
We will not make your life hard if you don’t wear elbow pads, but everything else you should have to make sure you survive to ride another day.
For underaged riders
If you’re underaged and under 16, you must have a legal guardian present at the event. This must be your parent or an authorised person, 18 years old or older, who’s responsible for you at the time of the event.
If you’re underaged and over 16, it is OK for your parents to drop you off, sign a disclaimer and head to their own vacation.
If parents are not traveling with you, they can also give a written “Child Travel Consent” to a person who will be your guardian while you’re travelling and staying at the event. This document must be signed and verified at your local municipality’s office.
You must have the “Child Travel Consent” letter signed and verified when checking-in at a registration office upon your arrival to the event. Your guardian must be present at that time as well.
For your convenience, there’s a handy online tool to help you create and print-out an international child travel consent letter here.
For more accurate information, ask at your local municipality office.
Shuttle busses / truck
Shuttle bus will be provided for you to take you from the campsite to the track and vice versa. For each individual track there will be at least one shuttle at your disposal to make sure there is no long queuing time. Usually, we have 2-3 shuttle busses, depending on the number of riders.
Fully equipped ambulance team will be present at the track for each riding day.
Hay bales / Safety
Sufficient quantities of hay bales or skiing safety mats will be scattered around each hairpin as well as dangerous parts along all tracks. Wherever needed we will install safety nets for that extra protection. Organizers of this event consider your safety as their upmost priority!
Safety marshals with proper communication equipment
Sufficient number of safety marshals for each track. Each marshal will be equipped with proper radio station.
We strongly advise you to acquire some form of tourist insurance with international assistance, such as CORIS for example. Insurance allows the organization of medical aid and covers all the expenses occurred in accidents during your holidays, sports, or business travels abroad, 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. If you are traveling in a group, inquire about a group discount!
