We are awarding four prize packs, totalling over $11,000 in value.

You will be able to choose the exact specs for your snowboard: size, shape, flex and camber profile.

    You must submit your design into this thread. Information on how to post images on the forums can be found here.

    You must submit your design into this thread on the same sized template as the JPEG template supplied below.

    You can only win one prize. For example: if you submit two entries, you can't win first and second prize. We will only count your best entry.

    All artworks must be completely original. Do not base your artworks on any existing characters, movies, games or otherwise. We are looking for completely original ideas and all copyright laws will be taken into consideration during the judging process.
