Eastern Boarder Presents Street Games
at Waterville Valley
On Saturday and Sunday, January 28 (snowboard) & 29 (ski), 2012 Waterville Valley Resort and New England’s favorite shop EB will officially unveil Waterville's brand new South Street Terrain Park. This park is the brainchild of Terrain Park Manager Luke Mathison and his creative staff. The overall purpose of this park is for riders to have a place where the focus is on learning and progression without huge consequence. The Street Games event will be three 30-minute jam sessions per division. First off will be the Slingshot section where a 20ft Banshee Bungee will be setup for competitors to use. Second will be roll the dice where judges will be rolling the custom die and calling tricks at random. Third will be the creation station where judges will be looking for the most unique lines and use of the features. Building has begun on a new Red Bull signature feature for the event as well. There will be no teasers on what the feature will be so you'll just have to come to the event. This won’t be your typical contest format with over critical judging and mandated structure. It will be more of a controlled chaos with a focus on creativity,style and fun. Competitors will be awarded prizes from a very heavy sponsor list including: EB, Oakley, Red Bull, Foursquare, Forum, Special Blend, Coal and Banshee Bungee during each sections session at random for exemplary style. There will be one overall winner from each division at the conclusion of the event.
