Lib Tech’s Downtown Throwdown – Fueled by Monster Energy returns to the streets of Seattle and San Francisco! New features, amazing riders, over $25K in prize money and still totally FREE…it’s gonna be BANANAS!
The seventh year of the DTTD kicks off at noon on Saturday, October 6 in Occidental Park in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square, and finishes up on Saturday, October 27 on Fulton and Larkin Streets in the Civic Center of San Francisco.
The DTTD has grown from a local DIY project to the most anticipated and respected urban snowboarding event in the world. “It’s rad to see it keep growing each year,” says event creator Krush Kulesza, “we were able to increase the prize money again, added some new features, the rider list is insane and Lib Tech’s even doing snow cones…it’ll be all-time!”
