SKYLINE the BANKS

Opening the all new “SKYLINE the BANKS”
To be the trigger to hit the natural banked terrain, is the concept of the SKYLINE the BANKS.

The natural wave-like terrain on the left of the Skyline course has been trimmed and updated to become the perfect feature to carve and slash on. There will be swells created on the course for approaching the main banks deeper and higher.

Trigger the turn to enter the bank.
Trigger the bottom turn after hitting the bank.
It is up to you on how to make use of those subtle terrain features.

SKYLINE the BANKS is all about changing an ordinary slope into a stage to enjoy the bliss of the Turn and the true feeling of Glide.

*SKYLINE the BANKS will be open for a limited time until the opening of the HAPPO BANKS
