So, we had a fun idea for our national tour this year. There's a whole lot of snowboarding talent around the US - what if we could showcase this talent and host snowboard video edit battles at 4 cities across the nation? Think about it. Crews of 3-6 riders + a filmer hit the streets, backyards & the local slopes to create some cinematic magic. Then, those crews get to show off their skills (both video editing and snowboarding) to a crowd of people on the big screen. We at So-Gnar thought that was a pretty cool idea but wanted to make it... better.
Enter, The Shred Cinema. By now I'm sure you have seen the So-Gnar Transits on social media or, if you're lucky, in person. Well, we built a movie theater on the side of our Transit, picked up a projector and called up some of our friends to help us with some beats - our sponsors kicked in some awesome prizes including a $500 gas gift card to get you out to Colorado for a creative spring shred session. The So-Gnar Shred Cinema, powered by Zumiez, is coming to Pine Knob, MI on January 11th, Big Boulder, PA on January 25th, Ruby Hill in Denver, CO on January 31st and Summit at Snoqualmie, WA on March 7th.
Here's what you have to do to get in on the action. If you'd like to register a crew email Patrick@so-gnar.com. Patrick will hook you up with a link to submit your videos take down your crew's info.
