Tailgate Alaska is proud to announce our first collaboration snowboard with American snowboard manufacturer Never Summer Industries. The limited-edition snowboard will be designed to perform in the most challenging mountains on the planet – Alaska’s Chugach Range.
While Tailgate Alaska has always relied on the artwork of renowned artist Oscar Woodruff, this time we are doing something different. We are asking fans of Tailgate Alaska to design the board that will be ridden at this year’s seventh annual Tailgate Alaska event.
According to event founder Mark Sullivan, “We asked our fans on Facebook about some initial graphic concepts and they had a ton of awesome ideas – so we decided to turn over the design of the board to them.”
Graphics can be submitted from now until November 2nd, when the field will be narrowed to the Top 3 graphics for final voting. The finalists will be chosen by popular support on Facebook – meaning the graphics with the most likes and positive comments will move into the voting round which will be decided on November 9th, 2013.
The winner of the Tailgate Alaska X Never Summer Graphic Contest will get one of the limited-edition boards and a ticket to Tailgate Alaska. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the contest or to get templates and graphic elements to complete the board design. All entries must be able to produce their graphic in high-resolution format for reproduction. The contest can be followed on facebook at http://facebook.com/tailgateak
The summer snowboard contest/rave was all time this year! Bear Mountain always puts out a good contest to bring in the new season. The Flux team was there slaying it– SCOTTY VINE, ERIK LEON, IAN SAMS, and RYAN TARBELL know how to get down
We are stoked on the Never Summer 2014 lineup and it looks like we are not the only ones. Check out The Never Summer Onyx in the Transworld Snowboarding GoodWood guide. read the article HERE
RUSTY MALINOSKI – WORLD CHAMPION:
There’s no doubt that Rusty Malinoski is one of the hardest working athletes in the sport today. While talking about his training regiment, Rusty mentioned that the older he gets, the harder he has to work to keep his body in peak physical condition. If you’ve ever watched him ride you know why he needs to be there, he goes big on every trick, from the technical to the stylish, and everything is on lock. When Rusty wants to land something new or capture it perfectly on film, he may make over 100 attempts, as was the case with his Alliance Wakeboard Magazine cover this summer. All the dedication and passion Rusty has for wakeboarding paid off this season, with a win at the Masters and most recently at the World Championships. This is the second time Rusty holds the 2 most prestigious titles in wakeboarding in the same year, having first clinched these wins in 2009 and now repeated this season. Congratulations to Rusty on a season full of achievement. Watch Rusty’s winning run here
