Five weeks ago we started the I am broke raffle on MySpace… All you had to do is choose a product from our webshop and write a blog on MySpace why YOU need this product. And the best one should get his/her fav. product. Today it’s over and now the winner is clear.
Sanda from Croatia made a sweet video for the raffle which ensured her the best blog entry. Here’s it:

Stoked – The New Snowboard Videogame
Stoked finally brings realistic gaming to our XBoxes!
Stoked is the name of the newest invention in snowboard game. Using a wholly new approach the developers at Bongfish present to us a game which we have been craving for. Stoked is the first Open World World snowboard game and at the same time a game which puts the realistic mode onto your Xbox. The open world mode gives you the opportunity to explore 5 snowboarding worlds on your own and hit the mountains wherever you want. For support you will be able to use a helicopter which can drop you off at exactly the peak or mountain face you would like to hit next. But there is still way to go! The weather in Stoked is dynamic which puts your favourite mountains into different conditions. And finally once it starts snowing the snow stays, just as in the real world and you will be able to catch some thick pillow runs and great powder turns! No wishes stay unanswered in Stoked – daylight changes, snowstorms it is a 100% realistic game!
But the developers continued the realistic touch also in the rest of the game – it begins with real riders through real snowboard gear and ends at real board models. The Pros available in the game belong to the big names we know from contests and videos – riders like Travis Rice, Nicolas Mueller, Wolle Nyvelt, Annie Boulanger, Romain de Marchi, Tadashi Fuse, Gigi Ruef, and Bjorn Leines will definitely increase your fun gaming. But just as in real life nobody is born pro and that is why you have to teach your rider the sickest moves to turn him pro and get sponsored. The sponsor line up comprises more than 30 brands and names like: Burton, Dragon, Arcus, Von Zipper, Eleven, 686, Billabong, DaKine, Electric, LibTech, Nitro, Northwave, Oakley, Quiksilver, Ride, Hart, Rome, Salomon, TechNine, Vans, Volcom, Anon, Nikita, Raiden, Red, Roxy, Sodalicious and VonZipper cover everything snowboarder hearts are craving for. In addition a Blue Tomato customizer was built in the game which gives you the opportunity to scroll through different styles, just as in our shop, and out your rider into some great stuff. So, why wait any longer? Everyone who has been waiting for a game that gives you the real feeling better get themselves one right away! You can be informed about any new developments of the game on the Bongfish tweet right here. Stoked will be available soon at our shop

Free Blue Tomato Facemask
Lukas, Ursi, Lisi, Alex, Simone and me, hit the road to Zürich last Thursday about 1 pm in the afternoon. Due to some problems with the entertainment system (the radio) our first stop was a local electronic dealer. Hooked up with a new radio we arrived at our Hotel about 11 pm without any bigger occurences. Friday was the day for building up our booth, checking out Zürich, shopping and the opening of the freestyle.ch. The Zimtstern inventory-clearance sale was perfect for the shopping part of the day. But you should know one thing if you visit Zürich these days, never rely on a navigation system cause there are roadworks everywhere. And if I say that I mean really EVERYWHERE. 6pm doors opened at the freestyle.ch.
At our booth you could get Blue Tomato catalogues, gingerbread hearts, stickers and Clast headbands. Additional we had a photo-wall of our Lederhosen Boardshort. Big props to Renato and all the other Clast guys for the support!
We rotated with working so that everyone could have a look at some action going on and checking out all the other booths. Don’t have to mention how high the riding level was at the contest, sure you already checked out some of the videos which are online everywhere on the internet. In the evening Lisi and Simone visited the Zimtstern party, but the rest of us were too exhausted and preferred to catch up some sleep. On Saturday the doors opened from 11am till 11pm.
After doors were closed we headed towards the After Burner Party with premiere of the new Pirates flick “Jolly Roger”. Film was sick, party was fun, just have a look at the pics! Unfortunately we had to work the next day but we made it and spread the last catalogues, ginger bread hearts and Clast headbands to the masses so that we could enjoy the superfinals.
Around 10pm our booth found its way back to the van and we could leave the Landiwiese towards Schladming. The trip was some kind of weird due to some, let’s call it “burger-escape” and technical difficulties at the refuel station. Nevertheless we arrived Schladming at 4am. Totally done but also stoked about the great weekend.
