Billabong is celebrating its 10th year and going bigger than ever at Snowpark in NZ! The ol’ Bro Down is now the Billabong Slope-style and it’s happening from Thursday 4th August up on the hill at Snowpark in Wanaka. We’ve upped the TTR rating, we’ve upped the prize money (US$30k total), we’ve upped the prizes and we’re cramming a dozen or so hits into the Slope-style course, just to make things really interesting. Antti Autti, Robbie Walker, Clint Allan, 2010 Open Men’s winner, local Jake Koia, Sebastien Toutant, Zach Stone & current TTR World Women’s Champion Jamie Anderson are among those who have already confirmed their attendance. There are Open Mens, Open Womens and Juniors divisions. Parties? Yes. There’s a launch party on Thursday 4th, at Revolver Bar in Queenstown. Our mates from across the ditch in Sydney, Australia, Van She Live, will be playing. We love these guys. Van She Live are a four-piece who bridge the musical gap between boldly adventurous shoe-gaze and danceable glint disco. Tickets are $10 NZ smackers at the door. And of course, there’s gunna be a preso and after-party for competitors and their guests at the Woolshed at Snowpark. We’ll have DJ’s dropping some beats and live music to boot. So if you’re on the hill, there's only one place to be!
