Fivers for Tranny's at SNO!zone Castleford Friday 13th June..

On Friday the 13th of July, Castleford Sno!Zone will host a host a snowboard session which will pit shredders against a unique course designed in a collaboration between Jonny Russell, Tom Guilmard, Will Smith and Thrashmore.

They will build the closest approximation we can to a skate bowl on a downhill slope. The course includes TRANNYS, gaps, jibs, hits and burmed corners (see picture!).

There will be no registration, no bibs, no entrance fee and no start marshalls. win CASH for snowboarding like a BOSS! Choose your line and impress the judges with clean riding and 'out of the box' thinking and win a grubby fiver right there and then!

They will have three judges. If two judges give your run a nod, you get that fiver on the spot. A couple of decent lines and your petrol is paid for. A few decent runs and so are the beers! Riders are not against each other, rather all are against the course. The judges will especially favour new lines and different gaps or stepping up the tricks. if you take the same line as the guy before you only need to throw in a spin over that gap to keep the cash rolling.

With 500 quid donated by the rad guys at Monster, in used, non-sequential (untraceable) five pound notes, the cash prizes will become available as soon as the first rider drops in. Because the features are likely to take a beating, there will be no warm up and the comp is done when we either run out of prizes, the course falls down or the world ends.

Because of the format, its up to you guys how you go. If the course turns into a texas deathmatch, the judges will do their best to watch as much as possible, but some stuff might get missed. It will be RAD though!

Also, the event is to be covered by The Reason Magazine and we will have filmers and photographers literally everywhere, so as well as winning STUFF, we can make you famous for snowboarding dangerously.


Stomp something extra gnarly to win a special spot prize. we have Lobster boards, hoodies and tshirts, dalikfodda hats and tshirts and some awesome Vans product and 32 outerwear! Do something lame to win a scotch egg or a porn magazine (a copy of forty plus, kindly donated by jamie nicholls).

The top rider over the whole night will win the "best tranny 2012" award, which is likely to be a shit 80s trophy in fake gold and marble. DAMN!!

They will update the event over the coming days as we have some even more extra special stuff planned, so watch this space for extra prize categories for EUROCARVING and hopefully getting a band on the snow during the event.

Penny Skateboards Edit..

Just found this online and had to post it.. Nicely shot and a great tune. Check it out.

What are Penny Skateboards??

Penny Skateboards
12 years experience in skateboard manufacturing has given me a strong appreciation for what it takes to make great quality skateboards. I’ve channeled everything I’ve learnt in manufacturing and design to come up with a high performance, long lasting, ultra fun plastic skateboard. From looking at any skateboard you can see whether its fundamentals are balanced. You can see it as each component comes together to make the final product and you can feel it under your feet and in your hands. And, it’s what sets Penny Skateboards above all the rest.
Each Penny Skateboard is built with the highest quality raw materials and fanatical attention to detail. Penny Skateboards are designed and built to look good, perform well, and exceed all your expectations. Penny Skateboards, since forever.
