Fast-Paced Snowboarding Programme on Triangle

Triangle Television To Screen Fast-Paced Snowboarding Programme

Snowboarding fans can soon tune in to Triangle Television for full-on Australasian action when the popular snowboard show Goin' Ballistyx! hits the airwaves next month. Due to screen on Triangle Television Auckland weekly from Friday, July 14 at 8pm, Goin' Ballistyx! focuses on cutting-edge snowboarding action both here and in Australia where it already has won a huge audience.

The show will also screen every Saturday night on Triangle Television Wellington when that station goes to air in August. Two knowledgeable hosts move the show along at a fast pace, cutting between weekly snowboard segments and expert guests. Every episode features interviews with leading snowboarders from Australia and around the world. One of the highlights is Australian Winter Olympian snowboarder Andrew Burton interviewing his snowboarding colleagues on the slopes.

The Goin' Ballistyx! line-up includes a weekly 'What's On in the Mountains' segment, French ski-bunny 'Michelle' delivering a hilarious snow and weather forecast, and regular competitions. There is also snowboarding from the Victorian Alps, footage and interviews from Stylewars at Australia's Falls Creek, plus interviews with board-riders such as United States star Zach Leach.

Snowboarding movie The Community Project is also previewed in one episode. There's no skiing on this dynamic show – it's 100 per cent pure snowboarding and a not-to-be-missed programme for those who love high-action sport.
