No Man's Land Freeride
Description: We're non-profit sport's association from Slovenia that are well established in organizing downhill skating events in this part of the world. Downhill skateboarding or longboarding, is considered a dangerous sport that is usually practiced on open roads. That's why these kinds of events are invaluable to any skater, as we do the road closure and secure it with hay bales in order to secure it for the riders.
Type of Work: Here are some general tasks that you might be doing:
Sweeping the track (before/during/after), Using radio equipment (important to be alert during and between the runs), Notifying Goal/Start person in case of accident, any irregularity, rider's jam, dangerous and uncontrolled pack riding, Preparing the track before the start of each day (sweeping up, stacking up the hay bales), Collecting the garbage after each day (not much of it).
Study Theme: The volunteers will get to know a beautiful region of Slovenia that is surrounded by wild nature, scenic mountains, and endless forest. A small picturesque town of Tolmin is a one of the main tourist attraction in Slovenia, blessed by stunning emerald river Soca and high Alpine peaks. Besides, our volunteers have a chance to meet downhill skating scene and to have a glimpse of organisational aspect of the event.
Accommodation: We will be lodged in the camp, which is adjacent to the stunningly beautiful river Soca, in a close vicinity of town of Tolmin. The camp is new and modern, with all the usual camping facilities. Please note that camping gear is not provided. Food will be provided.
Language: Good command of English language is required.
Requirements: We expect from our volunteers punctuality, reliability, and serious approach to work. Course marshalling bears its responsibilities and any crash or injury has to be reported immediately.
Approximate Location: The workcamp will take place in Tolmin, in the western region of Slovenia, right on the border with Italy, along with Soca river.
