Just a reminder that the contest is still open. We got some tips from the Pirates' Luschi and Marco Grilc too.

Burton and main sponsor Suzuki are not only teaming up for the Burton European Open 2008 and the Burton AM Tour 2007/08, they also came up with an online-design-contest based on the concept of Burton’s Series 13™. The contest's site - www.series13.com/freeride - is live so everyone out there gets the chance to design his own board and win it.

While this is already pretty cool, there is even more waiting for the winner! He will take home a brand-new Suzuki Grand Vitara Freeride in the design of the winning board-graphics! The contest is part of the Burton Series 13™ program. It enables consumers to create their own board graphics. All contest submissions will be judged online by the public on a monthly basis. 5 monthly winners will make it to the finals at the end of the season. The best designs will be judged in the first week of March by a panel consisting of Burton team riders, product managers and Suzuki representatives. The best Series 13 design will receive a Suzuki Grand Vitara Freeride Edition in the design of the winning board-graphics as well as his personal Series 13 board! Taking part is easy: www.series13.com/freeride and download the template for a board-shape, design your board – be creative! – and upload the file.

Come on, get your pencils or pens out and start drawing, or build the craziest photo-collage of the best day of your life. Whatever comes to your mind, bring it down on paper or computer and join! You might end up with a car with a matching board on the roof-rack!
