After several months and a bunch of awesome submissions, Sylvain Vidal from Paris, France, wins a trip to Avoriaz (and heaps of other goodness) for his jib design, ‘The Stairs’.
Analog’s first European Design Unlikely Features Contest invited participants to create a unique, custom-built jib feature. We received a ton of submissions for this first edition, it was impressive to have an insight into the imagination of young euro shredders, and some ideas were pretty off the hook (the Wang of Destiny???). Entries were judged based on creativity, ride-ability, and build-ability. We looked for something fresh and imaginative, and that was also movable.
Sylvain Vidal from Paris, France, caught our attention with his street style approach obstacle which allows many tricks and lines variations. Sylvain will have his dream creation built and Analog will bring him out for the weekend to the Design Unlikely Features Europe Contest on March 19th, 2011. Avoriaz 1800 will host the event where he can participate in the first ever contest on his winning feature (of course there’s no pressure to compete it’s optional). In addition, Sylvain will receive:
2 Round Trip Tickets to/from Avoriaz 1800
2 Nights Lodging at Avoriaz 1800
Custom built snow feature at Avoriaz 1800
Contest centered around his creation
Analog Outerwear Kit (Gloves, Jacket, Pants)
Analog Clothing Package (Including: Jeans, beanie, t-shirt, flannel, fleece and belt)
We’d like to give huge props to everyone who got involved and sent their submissions, picking the winning obstacle wasn’t an easy task at all!
