Nominees Announced For TransWorld SNOWboarding's 15th Annual Riders' Poll Awards
Each season TransWorld SNOWboarding gathers the votes of over 100 pros to determine the best riders, video parts, and performances of the year. For our 15th Annual Riders' Poll Awards veterans like Danny Kass, Andreas Wiig, Eero Ettala, John Jackson, Chris Bradshaw, and Terje Haakonsen all voted alongside up-and-comers such as Jake Kyzuk, Stale Sandbech, and Sage Kotsenburg, creating snowboarding's largest survey of pro rider opinion.
To see who's named the best in snowboarding, join us on Friday, January 31 at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado for the biggest night in snowboarding. Doors up at 7:00 p.m. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. For those who can't make it, catch videos of the winners at TWSNOW.com/riderspoll.
