Bench Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens– except a pack of the world’s most creative snowboarders making magic from nothing in the streets of Oslo, Norway, and a public session at Vinterpark that gave locals a  three hour taste of the Seymour lifestyle.  Rumour has it the Dinos turned Fredrik Perry pro, too.  Missed the fun?  Don’t worry– when this session’s over, it will start again…

From Bench Heaven:

The Bench. A beautiful, naturally occurring global phenomenon. Recently, a group of friends new and old gathered in Oslo, Norway to celebrate this wonder of the modern world. It was just like heaven…Bench Heaven.

The event started with a three day invite-only film session on existing benches in and around the streets of Oslo.
The last day was the public event, Bench Heaven, at Oslo Vinterpark that allowed the local kids to hang out and ride with the invited pro riders.
The three hour long jam went off as you can see in this video.

Thanks to Dinosaurs Will Die, Adidas Snowboarding, Snowboy Productions, Oslo Vinterpark, Bourbon Rails and Fredrik Perry for making this event possible.

Also thanks to Brekka Design and Johan Selmar for providing the amazing trophies.
