The dates are announced for the Quiksilver and Roxy Radar sessions, where groms can fight for a spot at the European X-Games and a shot at following in the footsteps of Mathieu Crepel, Travis Rice or Torah Bright.
There’s also one week’s summer camp and nothing less than a year’s contract riding for the Quiksilver or Roxy team on offer for the eventual winner so you can be sure that there’s no messing around with this bad boy. The contest is open to all boys and girls aged between 8 and 13, who can snowboard
Quiksilver and Roxy shops that participate in the Radar will be transformed for the occasion into talent spotters, with the winning shop being awarded a week in the Hossegor “Quik house”, as well as an invitation to the Winter X Games Europe, held in Tignes.
