It's August, 30+ degrees. I'm wearing shorts and a Hawaiian shirt, and I need to cut my skate session short to go home and wax my snowboard. Sorry bro, I cant come to the BBQ tonight, I need to roll up my sleeping bag to make it fit in that tiny bag and figure out where the hell I put my gloves. I need to get ready for Tropcamp!
The special summer cocktail called Tropcamp consists of 4 major ingredients: snowboarding, camping, a bromantic fireplace and a bunch of people looking to have a good time. I have grown really fond of this refreshing beverage. Acutally, I'm addicted to it, but I'm not the only one. Tropcampers from Slovenia, Poland, Germany and Austria came out this time.
Are you tired of just sweating on the beach and dreaming about snowboarding? Can't afford a jaunt down to Chile? Watched every single video on this site 100 times already? Make a move! Come to Tropcamp and have a blast with your homies, meet new people, skate and, most importantly, shred the dome till you're dead every day!
Big thanks to the Snowtropolis Senftenberg, Deeluxe, Go-Shred, the shapers and all the campers for making this event so unique.

Campers pitched their Heimplanet tents outside the Snowtropolis Senftenberg snow dome. Out here it was definitely still summer...
Lights out hippie jump contest, Jan Schwez took it with this massive vault and his flaming hair flying
