It’s the final competition of the season, and we’re going out with a bang. A big bang. This month’s prize is truly epic. Here’s what’s up for grabs.
STEPCHILD POWDER SUCKS SNOWBOARD
One of the most popular boards in the Stepchild range, this reverse camber stick is built for buttery freestyle. Its true twin shape and low spin weight means it jibs like a dream, and incredibly (given that name) it actually handles powder pretty well too.
THIRTY TWO LASHED FT BOOTS
Thirty Two make some of the lightest, most comfy snowboard boots in the world. The Lashed is one of their best-selling models, with a mid-flex that’s perfect for freestyle. The FT in the name stands for Fast-Tec, their speed-lacing system, which makes getting them on and getting out to shred easier.
THIRTY TWO LOWDOWN JACKET
This is a Thirty Two classic – a nice chunky logo jacket rocked by the likes of JP Walker. It’s got a decent tech outer, with an 8k/5k waterproof and breathability rating and boasts critically taped seams. Perfect for gittin’ G in the park or hiking kickers up on the hill.
THIRTY TWO SURVEYOR PANTS
These pants are seriously tech, with a 20k waterproof rating, and fully taped seams. They’re built to take a beating and still keep you dry, or as Thirty Two put it “ready for work. Lunchpail not included.”
SPY ZED GOGGLES
Spy’s Zed frame is one of those shapes that’ll fit pretty much anyone’s face. It’s low profile, understated, and in white, classically cool. This also comes with a spare lens for bad light conditions.
CELTEK CHROMA MITTENS
These mitts are warm and super-comfy, and will give you that new-school freestyle steeze. Best of all though, they’ve got Celtek’s ‘wunderzip’ system which means you can free your fingers without taking them off. Handy eh?
CELTEK MONSTER MOUTH FACEMASK
Need something to keep your neck warm? Celtek have got it covered – literally. Breathable and warm.
WHITELINES-PARK COLLAB HOODIE
We’ve hooked up with one of our favourite UK brands to produce these sick collab hoodies. They’re warm, comfortable, and best of all (we think anyway) have your favourite mag’s name emblazoned across the front.
WHITELINES-DALIKFODDA COLLAB BEANIE
Dalikfodda make some of the sickest hats in the business, hands down. Like all our collab goods, this versatile coal-black number was designed by our art director Tim, so naturally it looks rad.
ABSINTHE FILMS T-SHIRT
A sick Billabong tee so you can show your love for the sickest film crew in snowboarding.
ONE WEEK’S SNOWBOARD CAMP FOR TWO COURTESY OF ALLIANCE CAMPS AND DRAGON LODGE
Alliance Snowboarding have teamed up with the legendary Dragon Lodge to offer our lucky winner and a friend a week’s fully-coached snowboarding in Tignes. Not only will you be put up in one of the original (and best) rider-owned and run chalets in the Alps, you’ll also be taught by some of the best instructors out there. So whether you’re just getting started or you want to perfect your switch back fives, you’re pretty much guaranteed to improve. Alliance’s BASI-qualified instructors will give intensive coaching by day, while Dragon Lodge’s super experienced staff (all of whom are shredders) will look after you by night. With three course meals, X Boxes, shred DVDs, a board maintenance room, and one of the best atmospheres in the Alps, it’s guaranteed to be a blast.
So what are you waiting for? Answer this stupidly easy question, and win yourself all of this goodness!
