The UK’s premiere snowsports centre, The Snow Centre, based in Hemel Hempstead, and HEAD Snowboards have teamed up to launch a competition for designers to create the most outrageous snowboard design yet. The winner will see their creation transformed into a one of a kind HEAD Transit snowboard along with a pocketful of freestyle passes or lessons to put it through its paces on the best snow this side of the Alps.
Entrants are encouraged to showcase originality as well as design proficiency, laying down the most kaleidoscopic range of colours, shapes and text they can dream up. Judging the competition will be The Snow Centre’s director of snowsports Pete Gillespie, The Snow Centre’s park shapers and diggers with attitude, The DWA, and the design possy at the fiendishly hip free publication, Don’t Panic.
Pete Gillespie, Director of snow sports at The Snow Centre, added “The Snow Centre has the fastest growing freestyle night – Park and Ride – in the UK with some amazing features to max out on each week. We’re really excited to see what other worldly creations the design community can come up with to create the deadliest of boards going. Snowboarding has always had a close relationship with design and we’re hoping this comp unearths the best Britain has to offer.
