Quiksilver and Roxy Radar Talent Search

7 Dec

Quiksilver and Roxy are launching registration for the second season of the ‘Quiksilver & Roxy Radar’ contest – a European wide search to find the next Candide Thovex, Mathieu Crepel or Torah Bright.

The contest, in association with TSA and Whitelines is open to all young shredders between the ages of 8 and 14 and includes male and female categories for both ski and snowboard. The winners will be rewarded with a renewable one-year contract on Quiksilver or Roxy – in other words, instant sponsorship! All finalists will also win VIP access to the Winter X Games Europe in Tignes AND an invite to an exclusive summer training camp next season.

All in all this is a pretty banging prize for any kids serious about pushing their riding and developing a snowboard career. Want to find out how to enter? Read on…

Groms who are up for this challenge will have to get through 3 stages:

1) January 2011- Web Pre-Selection
Riders will have the opportunity to upload files, photos and videos of their best tricks, along with a short blog to www.quiksilverlive.com. Based on these uploads around 50 groms will be selected to go through the next stage. Registration will be open from 1st December 2010.

2) February 2011- ‘Happy Riding Days’
Six European locations, including the UK, are running ‘Happy Riding Days’ to which the 50 pre-selected candidates will be invited. During the day, the groms must impress the judging panel – which includes some of Quiksilver’s top team riders – with sick tricks, personality and style. Each rider will feature in their own video which will be submitted to an online gallery where the public and the Quiksilver pro’s will make their votes.

The results of the votes will narrow the selection down to 18 finalists (12 boys, 8 girls) from all over Europe, who will then come together to compete in the final of the ‘Quiksilver and Roxy Radar’.

3) Quiksilver and Roxy Radar Finals to be held at the Winter X Games Europe
The final of the Quiksilver and Roxy Radar will run alongside the Winter X Games Europe (16-18 March 2011) in Tignes. The 18 finalists will compete in an ultimate jam session under the watchful eyes of, amongst others, Mathieu Crepel (double world snowboard champion) Torah Bright (Olympic snowboard champion) and Candide Thovex (freeride ski world champion). Four podium winners will receive their trophy straight from the hands of their idols, plus a one year sponsorship contract to join the Quiksilver / Roxy team.

All 18 finalists will be invited as Quiksilver and Roxy’s VIP guests to watch the world’s greatest snowboarders compete at the infamous Winter X Games.
