Burton New Zealand Open

FIRST MAJOR EVENT ON THE 2009/2010 SWATCH TTR WORLD TOUR Burton New Zealand Open Provides Early Season Opportunity for Riders to earn TTR Points

The 2009/2010 Swatch TTR World Tour is officially underway with the first major event of the Southern Hemisphere leg will take place next week. The 5Star Burton New Zealand Open kicks off at Cardrona Alpine Resort on Tuesday, August 11th 2009 where riders will be greeted with a 22-foot pipe and a world-class slopestyle course giving competitors two opportunities to lock in a 2009/2010 Swatch TTR Ranking result.


The Burton New Zealand Open has served as the major TTR Tour kick-off event for the past four years and is a perfect opportunity for riders to get a jumpstart heading into the Northern Hemisphere winter. With 850 Swatch TTR Ranking points and a $50,000 USD prize purse up for the taking, riders from around the globe will be looking to secure a piece.

2008/2009 Swatch TTR World Champion, Peetu Piroinen (FIN), recently confirmed his attendance at the event and will be defending his World No. 1 position from the likes of World No. 2 Chas Guldemond (USA), World No. 3 Antti Autti (FIN) and World No. 6 Charles Reid (CAN). The tight-knight Frends crew, all of which are ranked in the Top 30 on the TTR Tour, will also be upping the ante at this year’s New Zealand Open with Danny Davis, Luke Mitrani, Jack Mitrani and Mason Aguirre all slated to make an appearance.

The women’s side of the competition field is stacked with some heavy Swatch TTR Tour competitors including 2008/2009 TTR World Champion and current World No. 1 Kelly Clark (USA) who will definitely be a standout in the 22-foot pipe. Current World No. 3, Jamie Anderson (USA), is back at the New Zealand Open looking to clinch her second-consecutive Slopestyle title. Norwegian rider and current World No. 2, Lisa Wiik, turned some heads last season on the tour and is sure to be a force at the event. European Top 10 TTR riders, Silvia Mittermueller (GER) and Sarka Pancochova (CZE) are all due to be present in New Zealand making for some strong competition.

The Burton New Zealand halfpipe finals will take place on Friday, August 14th and slopestyle finals on Saturday, August 15th 2009. All semi-finals and finals.

After the Burton New Zealand Open wraps up, the Southern Hemisphere leg of the Swatch TTR will continue in Australia with the 4Star Stylewars and the 3Star Boost Mobile Sno Sho. The Tour will return to New Zealand for the 3Star Billabong BroDown before turning to the Northern Hemisphere, which is only a short time away.

World Snowboard Federation

WSF is the only international organisation working uniquely to develop and support snowboard at all levels, including competitions and education, disable and adaptive snowboarding, activities for riders of any age. WSF is a network of national snowboard associations cooperating worldwide for the development and promotion of the sport. Members find in WSF a source of inspiration and support to their activities. WSF can create added value for everybody involved in snowboard on national level and offers ideas, handbooks and initiatives, the result of an organization whose components share the same goal: progression of snowboarding at all levels.

WSF was constituted formally August 10th 2002 in Munich, by delegates from 14 nations - in order to fill the void after the collapse of ISF.
The initiative was taken by Japan and Norway – with support from most of the nations worldwide. It was operational late November 2002 due to workshop- consensus in Vienna.

Background
The organized independent snowboard culture have a history more than 20 years back. The break down of the ISF and PSA Europe left an empty space and a need of creating a new international entity – to take care of the best parts of the old culture .

Goal
We are aiming at stimulating activities that can make the snowboarding grow and develope in the spirit of the original, genuine culture that has been created by the pioneers of snowboarding and the pro-riders – the heroes of the kids.

WSF development
We have been focusing the preparation of future activities, building up a new network of dedicated snowboard-managers and leaders worldwide through national organisations.
We have been coordinating exchange of know-how, support and activities.
Our target-group has been the kids, youngsters rookies in all nations and national activities in general.
In a very short time of operation we have been recognised by almost all nations.
We have been especially involved with new upcoming snowboard-nations/regions and are very happy to see the increasingly strong growth and development in eastern Europe, and Asia.
We also have close relations to- and ranking cooperations with TTR making links from our grassroot-activities to the pro-level.

WSF-FIS
FIS takes care of their World-Cup and Olympics. We aim at caring for the rest – the development and survival of snowboarding – by getting involved with the management of the future generation of riders and make them a part of our culture.

WSF organisation and management
The management is originally located at HQ in Prague, financed by membership-fees. After last general assembly 2006 in Prague, the organization of the WSF was splitted in different head quarter (Norway, Italy, Russia, Czek Repubblic, Japan) according to the task of different working group.
Our organisational activities are taken care by experienced professionals in many countries, with dedication for the sport and an efficient way of working. WSF is a reliable and predictable partner, based on network-activity.
Our working concept is to be catalytic, stimulating and coordinating in order to achieve our goals.
The boardmembers consist of delegates from Japan, Russia, Italy, France, USA and Norway.

WSF future perspectives
We realise that our future work will depend on cooperation with all parties that have the same goals as WSF: growth and development of snowboarding world wide. This include the relation to the Industry, Pro-riders, event-organisers and many more.

WSF Statutes
WSF action are based on the Statutes downloadable here.

SASS has been doing the camp thing for a while. We like to think we are the best at it. But there is still a ton that we can't let our under 18 guests partake in.

The week will be filled with sightseeing, the best parties at the hottest South American clubs, and of course the deepest pow in Argentina. Guides are provided on the hill, and we set up the afterparties. It's everything SASS is known for, without the summer camp feel.

The session runs from August 29 until Sept 7.

Hope to see you in Argentina!

The World Quarter Pipe Championships

A Celebration of Transition and Fire

Since the late 90s, before the complete redesign and deconstruction of snowboard contests according the needs of TV and the interests of the large corporate sponsors footing the bill, a “world-class” event was created by a couple magazine editors at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire that would forever change snowboarding. On what was probably a gray spring day in March, 1998, the World Quarterpipe Championships were born.

Over the years, snowmobiles have been stolen from ski patrol, inflatable pools have been ridden on the hill, board bags full of beer have been dragged up the mountain, Ross Power’s Olympic-winning board has been thrown on the fire, hotels have evicted everyone associated with the event, and “contestants” have been pelted with snow and ice as they jump a bonfire on the run-in. It was, and still is, a lawless event run by snowboarders for snowboarders. After a three-year hiatus, the gauntlet fire was re-ignited last March at Tim and Chris Waker’s Timber Ridge for some much-needed celebration of snowboarding.

Once again, 2009 will see the World Quarters back at Timber Ridge, the lawless private resort owned and operated by the Wakers. With the support of the Rome SDS, Red Bull, Oakley, Iceberg and co-founder Pat Bridges, the stage is set for a new rider to be added to the list of legends that have held the title of the best Quarterpipe Rider in the world.

The World Quarters an event that defines the word “open”: any rider, international pro or random kid from Jersey, is free to drop in and compete. There are no VIP tents, no media credentials, no invitation lists and no bag searches to worry about. The mayhem is set to unfold on Monday March 23rd at Timber Ridge. Will Kevin Casillo or Shane Flood make an appearance to try to reclaim their fame of years past? Will the Magic Mountain Motel allow us back as patrons? We’ll see.

  • Who: International pros, local shreds, vagrants
  • What: Quarterpipe, The Gauntlet, Mini Shred, Pat Bridges Handplants, Snowmobiles, Party, After-party
  • Where: Timber Ridge Private Resort on the backside of Magic Mountain in Londonderry, VT
  • When: Monday March 23rd 2009 – All day
  • Why: For fun.
  • How: Free bus shuttle from Magic Mountain parking lot.

Established in 1999, The Oakley Arctic Challenge was created as an independent alternative to more established snowboarding events.
The Oakley Arctic Challenge is owned by the legendary snowboarder Terje Haakonsen. Having developed and invested in The Oakley Arctic Challenge, Terje fullfils the childhood dream of all snowboarders and paves the way for the upcoming talents and progression of the sport.
The event protects some key values; independence, creativity, progression, borderless, playfulness, social and environmental responsibilities.

The first full on competition was held in 2000 in the North of Norway, since then it has gathered the best snowboarders on the planet to come together for this very special event. It has also seen global TV and media coverage explode (TV distribution to more approx 200 countries), there are over 100 journalists and photographers on site every year and the event gets more than 300 news stories in Norway alone annually . TV-channels as BBC, Nippon TV, MTV, Eurosport, CNN and Fox Sports have visited and/or covered the event.

The Arctic Challenge was ranked as the best snowboard event in the world in Onboard Magazine's reader poll 2004 and got highest score in the TTR World Tour rider survey in 2008 together with German event Air&Style.

Oakley has backed the event since 1999, and have stepped up their commitment by becoming the title sponsor from 2007. In 2008 they entered a 3 year agreement with TAC; backing their plans to expand with more competition formats.
The 2009 event will take place in Linderudkollen, Oslo. Be there!
