QUIKSILVER YOUNG GUNS SNOW—2019
THERE IS STILL TIME AND PLENTY OF ENTRIES TO BE MADE! THE FIRST ROUND HAS A WEEK LEFT! QUIKSILVER and SNOWBOARDER are looking for the best under 18-year-old Young Guns on the mountain to take heli-boarding in Revelstoke for a chance to win $10,000! Check out the Official Rules, then strap in, go big and get your best clips ready to roll. It could be you!
You can enter as many times as you'd like. Along with Austen Sweetin, we will be your official #YGSNOWCONTEST judges, which means we will watch every entry and hand-pick our favorites from Instagram. Our top 8 will move on to the voting stage of the competition.
“That chunk of metal in your hands? That's your ticket to Revelstoke. Post your best original clips on Instagram, tagging @quiksilver and hashtagging #YGSNOWCONTEST. There are no guidelines on what to post and no preference between park or backcountry. It's just you, your board, some frozen water and a world of opportunity.
Feeling creative? Good, because Quiksilver is giving $1000 USD to the most creative entry, regardless of skill level. So have some fun and show us what you got.
And a quick heads up: If you're not under the age of 18 on March 10, 2019, then sorry old man, you're out. On the flip side, you need to be 13 on November 30, 2018 to qualify.
MEET YOUR JUDGE…AUSTEN SWEETIN
There are a ton of different ways to describe Austen Sweetin. He's got a reputation as one of the world's best all-terrain riders, which means he rips at everything that can be ripped — street, park, back country, skating, surfing, guitar…life in general. Check out his latest project below…
Participation is subject to the Official Rules.
Grab a pen. Grab a calendar. Then throw both of them out and go riding — but you still need to commit this date to memory: Jan 17, 2019. That's when our official #YGNOWCONTEST judges will make the call and the #YGSNOWCONTEST Top 8 will be announced.
Survived the first round? Nice work — you're one step closer to the final.
The top 8 contestant's clips will be posted on Quiksilver's Instagram stories for voting. You'll need to get your family, friends, fans and maybe even foes to vote for you by heading to @Quiksilver. The Young Guns with the most votes will move on to the final along with three extras that the crew at Snowboarder mag will hand-pick. After that, it's off to Revelstoke.
If you made the Top 4, then we'll help you get to Canada to meet up with our judge and the rest of the finalists. You'll spend one day riding the park. Then you'll spend one day heli-boarding in the backcountry. Then, if you're lucky, we will be handing you a check for $10K.
Didn't make the final? Didn't even enter? Don't worry, we still got you covered. We'll bring you live updates from Revelstoke. It'll feel like you're there with us — just maybe warmer.
