The annual snowboarding and music festival AK Extreme takes place on April 9−12 in Akureyri, North Iceland. The Big Jump competition that takes place on the Saturday in Gilið, a steep street in the town’s centre, is the highlight of the festival. The street is transformed into a huge drop-in and kicker and becomes the location where some of Iceland’s best snowboarders will attempt to win the Big Jump title for 2015.
