Rome’s Local GNAR Judging is Underway

All the experts say, you gotta pump up your Facebook fan page. Just last week we got a lesson on our “wall” about how you can use it to turn strangers into friends! That’s probably why Rome has decided to use this invaluable tool for its 4th annual Local Gnar video contest. Since you’re reading this site, you probably like zero-budget homey flicks, so check it out!


The videos are in and the judging has begun on the 2010 crop of Local GNAR entries. This marks the 4th year in a row that a group of Rome employees get to pretend they’re working for a day, and sit around to watch local snowboard flicks…could be worse.

This year we’ll be releasing one Local GNAR entry per day (in no particular order) for 5 weeks leading up to the announcement of the winner. You can check em all out on our Facebook page daily at

On top of first place taking $1000 cash, 2 Artifacts and 2 390 bindings, second taking home 2 Artifacts and 2 pairs of 390 bindings, and third taking 2 pairs of 390’s and 5 pairs of gloves, we’ll also be hooking up one video with something extra. The video posted with the most “Likes” will get 2 LIMITED EDITION hand-screened posters signed by some of the team and a small prize pack. So when we post your video, make sure your parents, friends, parents’ friends, and probably your friends’ parents for good measure, all click the “Like” button for you.
