SNOWBOARDER Magazine, in conjunction with MATADOR™ by Jack Link's® and Windells, presents America's Next Top Pro Model 2010
San Juan Capistrano, CA (July 6, 2009) - From the days of the legendary Craig Kelly Mystery Air to the infamous Tarquin Robbins sawed off shotgun deck, pro models have always held an esteemed place in snowboarding. Now SNOWBOARDER is challenging any and all riders with their name adorning a topsheet to put their money where their signature is with the first annual America's Next Top Pro Model.
Windells Snowboard Camp is the place to be July 18th and 19th as two dozen of snowboarding's top pros put their pro models through the paces in six disciplines to determine whose board can't be beat. On-snow events include Longest Railslide, Highest Ollie, Chinese Downhill, Spin to Win, and Biggest Halfpipe Air with the contest concluding with a charity auction at the Windells camper sale to determine the most valuable pro-endorsed deck. According to Eddie Wall, "Pat Moore spent all winter practicing his blue steel when he should have been practicing his ollies. I haven't spent the last ten years throwing up on hill not to win this. Bring it!" The always eloquent Marc Frank Montoya was kind enough to lend his competition some advice “They better bring their pads for the downhill because I’m fierce out there.”
TJ Schneider, Eero Ettala, Louie Vito, Pat Moore, Austin Smith, Eddie Wall, Bryan Fox, Steven Fisher, Peter Line, Scotty Arnold, Marc Frank Montoya, Scotty Lago, Jesse Burtner, Danny Kass, Lucas Magoon, Jon Kooley, Antti Autti, Gabe Taylor, Pat McCarthy, Keegan Valaika and others are confirmed to attend.
