Default Five Board Giveaway - White Friday Super Stoker!

Hope you guys are getting in some turns today and feasting hard!

We know that the economy is pretty harsh right now and that many would-be-new-riders are parked on the sidelines by a lack of funds. We want those people riding in 2013 and we are going to get that going, shite economy or not. We need your help!

Here is how this special stoker will work. We will give away Five boards this time.

The decks are brand new. They will have some superficial cosmetic blems and they will be trad cambered boards but they are 100% awesome for ripping on. These are all wood core decks and they are available in most men's and women's sizes.

What we want from you: A post in this thread with your description of why the person you have in mind is the most deserving soon-to-be-boarder ever. That's it. As always we will ship these in US for free. These 5 will be chosen by our staff (not in a raffle like we usually do).

In seriousness, there is nothing we dig more than getting new riders on snow and we love to be able to do these stokers during the holiday season. This will go on for 5 days only so now is the time!

Yeaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!

Alright well, this is a fantastic effort on your guys' part to spread the stoke when things are rough. I don't want to sound selfish, but I feel I am a deserving recipient of one of these boards. I am a full time college student and due to that schedule I only have time to work two days a week which just barely pays my bills. Any additional money I earn goes towards gas and helping out my folks with groceries and other incidentals. I have never owned my own snowboard, even though I definitely have the itch to ride. A couple years ago, I took lessons and immediately fell in love with the sport. I was able to rent gear a couple of times and get some slight experience to where I am able to ride without falling, big leap I know. All my friends ride and yet I can't join them since I can't afford my own set up. I know I am missing out and would love to get on the slopes more often. I have been a member of this forum for a few years now, and I can't help but feel like a poser every time I post on here. Please help me end that feeling and aid me in becoming an actual snowboarder, instead of a poser. I would be forever grateful! Plus, I live in beautiful Colorado, it is practically a sin to not ride when living here. Thank you for the opportunity, you guys are awesome for sure.

Awesome idea!!!

Okay my deserving soon-to-be-boarder is my neighbour Rob C: He and his GF moved here from England a few years ago and had never really been boarding or skiing. Since meeting us we've gone once but he's still in need of his first setup. I bug him all the time about boarding, and I know he really wants to get out there and do it!!! I've been trying desperately to find him a good budget first setup, but he's struggling (even with a $220 board I found him) to pull the trigger as he's got a new baby and a soon to be wife to feed (and wedding to pay for).

The guy works his ass off, is a great Dad, and deserves to be out there on the snow with the rest of us on our days off!

Again, great idea for a thread, good luck to everybody!

I don't think I have a sob story. Just a struggling-actor of a younger brother riding a beat-up old Burton that's about 6 inches too long for him. Always wanted to be the best older brother ever. This could be my chance!

I work with a guy named Tony who is the janitor (called "porter") at the casino I work at. He is a hard working, intellgent and respectful person who hates his job and is trying to become a poker dealer, but there is a long wait list and he has much training to do first. As we became friendly I became aware that he had a gambling addiction which is rough considering he is around gambling all the time at work (like a bartender with a drinking problem). It was only recently that I convinced him to make an effort to quit by holding him accountable, but he is having a hard time because during his freetime he just thinks "well ive got nothing else to do, ill go to the casino." What he needs is a hobby... I raved to him about the joys of snowboarding, and he said he would like to learn. I said I could coach him step-by-step since I am going every week this season, but he is very turned off by the idea of frequent rental fees since he makes so little working. This guy has never even seen snow in person, and he told me he imagines it feels like cold salt haha. Im giving him my extra jacket & pants etc because I really want him to get into snowboarding so he won't get super bored on his days off and be tempted to gamble again. Whenever he gets the itch to gamble he can instead head to the mountain, and in time he should soon realize the benefits of saving his money (however small of an amount it may be) and be able to kick his addiction for good. I'd like for this kid (hes 22 years old) to kick the habbit while he's young... everyday I see middle-aged and older people with gambling addictions that are hopeless, but Tony still has a shot at quitting for good.

Great initiative guys! My story is about my 13 years old son, who finally got stoked about riding and now constantly asks me when are we going riding next time. Amazing. Finally I have someone in the family to whom share my weather updates mania, to swap riding gear and amazing pow days. He will be using my old Cartel bindings, but my shorter board (155) is too big for him. he needs a 148 max. And I will be probably getting one of your Camp Seven boards. Loved SnowWolf review.

We are not in need by any mean! I finally found a job 6 months ago, but I wanted to share the story with you guys. We will have another maniac in the family, that's for sure, and my trips to Kirkwood will be much more fun.

I recommend that kid who posted the other night who is very sick and wants to spend his final days finding pow. Anybody got that link?

So heres the deal. Most of you probably don't know about this, I tend to keep it under wraps as its not a very popular lifestyle, but I like to keep a hostage in the basement on a pretty regular basis. I get the feeling this is "frowned upon".

Well sometimes these little piggies die off, or lose games that I make for us to play which end up in them getting killed.

My current pet is a real gem, let me tell you! She's great at the games, and keeps the noise down in general.

This holiday season's game is "snowboarding, or die".

Wiredsport, see where this is headed?

Stoke a newb and save a life!

Wiredsport, I'm sure I don't have to spell out where you come in.
