20 Snowboard Events to Look Out for in 2013/14


Burton High Fives in New Zealand is much more than just a snowboard competition. Before anyone has even touched a board, riders are split into teams for a whole heap of different events. In the most hedonistic circuit training course ever, comps include skeet shooting, go-karting, Mini-racing, speed boating and knife throwing at the Oxbow Adventure co.

Once they do finally strap in, the comp is actually a pretty serious letter of intent for the season. It’s one of the first chances for riders to show each other how productive they’ve been over the summer months, and surely is an even bigger deal after the pre-game banter between riders.

This year’s event has already passed with Taku Hiraoka and Kelly Clark taking top spots in pipe and big hitters Stale Sandbech and Jamie Anderson going on to win slopestyle.
