We’d just like to give a nod to our friends at Have Some, down in lovely Morgantown, WV for their dedication and overall badassness in regards to this backyard jib contest that Rome SDS is putting on RIGHT NOW. Below you’ll find their entry for the prestigious event, which is awarding free snowboards and the chance to have the Rome team come shred your set up. Not only should these guys win because it would be funny to make pro snowboarders go to WV and drink moonshine, but because their set up is pretty badass. But of course, we don’t have any pull, and we’re biased as this is the only entry for the contest we’ve seen. There’s still time to enter, all the details below the vid.
If you build it, we will come.
College is a really good time for a lot of reasons, one being the mass amount of free time you have on your hands. If you’re anything like us, some of your best memories are nights that include snowboards, building jibs around campus, and a little after-session partying.
With this in mind the Rome SDS has announced the first Ima Betta Jibba: College Backyard Jib Contest.
Most college snowboard crews already have some sort of set-up to mess around on, whether it is a couple rails or boxes in someone’s backyard, a snake-run through campus or even just some barrels or stumps to do some bonking on. Some crews have even put stuff together that would rival their local park.
Well, here’s your chance to get the recognition you deserve for all your hard work at school. Either get off the couch and build that set-up you talked about doing all fall, or just go out and spruce up the set-up you’ve already built. Shoot a short video, snap some photos and send them in to [email protected] by February 1st, 2010.
What you can win: we’ll be choosing the top College Jib-Park and sending a few Rome Team members over to shred and put together a video edit with the winners. For good measure we’ll also be hooking the crew up with a couple new Rome boards.
