16 Days - 16 Chances to Win!

For the first time ever, we will run an online giveaway marathon this year! Since our office is based in Munich and we're really into drinking beer, it is called the Onboard Oktoberfest, and just like the real fest, it will run from the 21st of September until the 6th of October, a whopping 16 days! Each day you can win killer prizes from our partners.

All you need to do is visit our page every day and answer a simple snowboard-related question to enter our daily prize draw.

If you're one of the lucky winners, we will do our best to ship your prize out to you in time before the season starts.

You can already browse through all the giveaways, although we will unlock and show the specific questions only on the specific dates. So you have from 12pm CET on Saturday (coincidentally also the time the real Oktoberfest kicks off) until 12pm the following day to take part. Then the next competition starts. And then the next. And so on and so forth, until the 6th of October.

Now get our Oktoberfest-prize-draw-thing started and click over to our first competition!
