VASHON, WASHINGTON (November 8, 2002) — Have you ever wondered what it would be like to design a snowboard? Well now’s your chance! Ride Snowboards in conjunction with The Steamboat Springs Arts Council in Colorado is excited to present this incredible opportunity to all the artistically-inclined folks out there: Design a deck using the provided Official Snowboard Template and enter to win up to $1000 in cash and/or prizes including a Cat-Boarding Trip from Small Works Gallery sponsor Steamboat Powdercats or a brand-new Ride Snowboard!

“We’ve always put a tremendous amount of energy into and taken great pride in our graphics at Ride. I get thousands of emails from kids each year wanting to submit graphic ideas for our boards, so now we’re providing a forum for them to take it a step further with their artwork,” says Styk, Ride’s Creative Director.
