Rome SDS Presents: The 6th Annual Local Gnar Contest

12_marquee_local-gnar.jpg

Re-up on video gear, get your crew together, and stack footy this season because the Rome SDS is proud to announce the 6th addition of The Local GNAR contest. With $1000 up for grabs and tons of products for the finalists why wouldn’t you submit an edit? Over the last five years we have seen some impressive entries and every year they continue to get better. This year could be your chance to make internet gold and submit a winner!

We aren’t looking for rooftop-to-rooftop gaps, triple 1440’s, or quadruple kink hand rails…though if you have any footage of that feel free to throw it in. We are more excited to see quality riding and proper tricks with a crew that looks like they are having a blast. Remember, snowboarding is about having FUN, especially with your friends, and that’s what we love to see. So what do you need to do?

Spend the 2011/12 season filming; put together a short edit (less than 5 minutes) of your crew snowboarding and submit your work to our panel of judges. We will make a decision based on the following criteria:

  • The quality of filming and editing
  • The effort put into the video
  • Type/Difficulty of tricks
  • Stoke Factor—meaning the video that leaves us wanting to go snowboarding the most!

So, set your sights on becoming the 6th Local GNAR Champion in 2012 and start filming! The snow has begun to fall so it’s never too late to get your crews together, have fun, and try to win some of these Rome SDS prizes…

  • First Place: $1,000 cash, 2 Rome Hammerhead snowboards, and 2 pairs of 390 Boss bindings
  • Second Place: 2 Rome Hammerhead snowboards, and 2 pairs of 390 bindings
  • Third Place: 2 pairs of 390 bindings and 5 pairs of gloves

Keep your edit to 5 minutes or less, and make sure that your entries are in by May 15th, which is the deadline. Also make sure all videos are in Quicktime format on a thumb drive  and be sure to download and fill out this entry form: Local GNAR Entry Form.
