Ekstremsportveko is not always up in the skies, the street sports are also a big part of this festival!

THANK YOU! โค Veko's volunteers are the top of the heap (sometimes at 1200 meters ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜Ž) Ekstremsportveko could never work without all the volunteers! This year 800 people are giving their energy and both hands to make sure this festival is kicking ass. "I was the first to paint a cow, I painted it pink and I got reported to the police for that, haha!" ๐ŸฎAnn Christin Nรธss @acvossa - the queen of all volunteers, celebrating 20 years of volunteering at Ekstremsportveko. She knows everything and everyone. "When I moved to Voss I didn`t know anybody so I started to do volunteer work, and soon this became my new family. In the beginning Veko had no money, so we contributed everywhere we could. I call it Vossavillig - you are not just one thing at Veko, you get new challenges all the time so you have to be flexible and wing it!" ๐Ÿ˜‰

For Ann Christin Veko is extra unique compared to the other festivals. You meet people from all over the world from all kind of backgrounds. They give so much back, there is so much creative energy among the people. They are doers. Everyone helps each other, always lending a hand. Veko is so big, so it is so important that "greinansvarlig" take some responsibility to take extra care of their volunteers - and they do! "Vekomood for me is the good atmosphere, the smiles and everyone cares about this festival. We try to make Vekomood backstage with making it extra cozy, waffles 24/7 and also to get the musicians outside - up in the sky or down a river. That's true Vekospirit!" ๐Ÿ˜

The festival would never work without the volunteers. They are the ones who makes the machine run smoothly and fix all the problems that occurs randomly. They are the face out to the crowd, serving food, drinks, building stages, arranging the sport events and makes sure the security is on top. To make it simple: There would be no clean toilets without them, think about that!
A big thank you to all of you great volunteers! See you next year! ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ“ท by @haugseng_photo and @elintaarnes

Bouldering
Techniques, stamina, strength and mental challenges ๐Ÿ”
There is no "right way" of solving the routes, each climber has her/his own way of balance ๐Ÿค˜ ๐Ÿ“ท by @espen_haakonsen

Heli jumping! Paraglider exiting a helicopter ๐Ÿš
When this is done, the parachute is in a special D-bag held by a person in the chopper. The paraglider jumps out with guts and a huge smile - true Veko spirit. ๐Ÿ˜

Vossakriger - warrior of Voss ๐Ÿ‘Š
The participants were tested in tactical solutions, physical strength and mental stamina through a challenging obstacle course.
Here you see Trude Kaald in the finals where the obstacles were even harder and they all had to wear a 10 kg weight vest ๐Ÿ˜ฐ ๐Ÿ“ท by @bjvglr

Need for speed!
Head first with bended knees and arms behind, so called "Tuck position" - yesterday's Norwegian championship in longboarding took place at Skjervet. The speed is up to 70 km/h ๐Ÿ˜ต -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tumble, barrel, spin, helico, mctwist, wingover and misty flip. If you've raised your gaze to the sky during this Veko week, chances are you've seen these gut-wrenching stunts performed by some high-skilled acro paragliders.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
"We have to read the terrain to find thermal trigger points. Then it's possible to fly really long distances. This week in Voss they set a new Nordic record flying for 6,5 hours almost reaching Odda and back." - Erling Knapstad @happy_knappy_
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 90% of this sport is waiting around for the right weather conditions (especially in Norway ๐Ÿ˜‰). This is called parawaiting. ๐Ÿ“ท by @locteit
