How time flies! We at the IMA are super excited to present you the entries for the 4th edition of the 4 Down Project, our mountainboard video contest!
Because the World Championships were cancelled again this year, we're holding this online for the second time, and even though we don't get to project the premiere at our big annual gathering, we're still together in spirit, so sit down, grab a beverage and enjoy this year's videos from Costa Rica, South Africa, Switzerland, and Ukraine!

Our sponsor this year

All of us here at the IMA would like to thank Balance Japan for supporting the 2021 4 Down Project!

Without companies like them the sport of mountainboarding wouldn't be where it is today. They started selling mountainboards in the 90’s and have pushed the sport not only in their own country but globally. They have recently released their “Hybrid Hanger”. The top truck adapter to run old-style aluminum top trucks on the newer Matrix 2 axles. Having seen them in person they are top notch construction and a welcomed addition to those looking to retrofit Matrix 2’s with their existing Matrix top trucks!
If you haven’t seen them check out their online store for more information and to browse through all of your mountainboard needs and follow their instagram for the most recent mountainboard content: @balance.jp

Many thanks to Amon Shaw for the editing on this premiere video - again!

Vote for your favorite video!

The voting window is open until Aug 31st, and we'll announce the winners on Sept 1st. Please spread the word, we want the world to watch these videos!
