    Exclamation 2013 "SICKEST Board of '13" Board Building Competition - START

    The time has come to unveil the next board building competition:


    The Official Rules for Entering:

    Theme: Open themed
    Materials: Anything--No limitations
    Method to Build With: Anything--No limitations
    Dimensions: Anything--No limitations
    Finish: Must be ready-to-ride; a complete board with any kind of appropriate, mounted setup
    Required Photos: Must show at least four (4) photos of the board during construction, three (3) photos of the finished board, and one (1) photo of the board being ridden.
    In order to qualify, each individual board entry must meet these photo requirements.

    Prizes: Mad amounts of positive reputation and credibility on the forum, as well as the winner's board being dubbed THE SICKEST BOARD OF '13.

    Take Note: This board building competition is open to anyone who wants to participate. That said, this competition is mostly directed toward intermediates, the advanced, professionals, "gurus," legendaries, and other board builders with skill.

    Please enter this board building competition even if you are afraid of being outdone up by other board builders! (This is all for fun, after all!)

    Important Dates
    Friday, March 8th - The competition officially begins.
    Friday, April 12th - An official entry thread will be posted.
    Friday, September 13th - The official entry thread will close.
    Saturday, September 14th - An official public voting thread will be posted. Participants will be privately messaged their special voting ballots at or soon after this day.
    Saturday, September 21st - The official public voting thread will close. Special voting ballots will be due this day.
    Sunday, September 22nd - The official winner will be declared in a new thread.

    Voting Instructions
    Participants will receive a private message asking for their top five picks. Primary picks are worth three points, secondary are worth two, and tertiary are worth one point each.
    Those who did not enter a board will be able to vote in the voting thread created the same day using a voting poll.
    Participants cannot vote for themselves and are not allowed to vote in the public voting polls.
    This competition will be promoted on the front page of the Silverfish Longboarding main website.

    I will be in contact with someone to independently count votes at the same time I do because I will also be participating in this competition.
    That's right, no more sitting back and letting all you do the work in these board building competitions. Consider yourselves officially challenged!


    Please use this thread as a dumping ground for photo teasers, discussions about board constructions, showing off materials, challenging other people (keep it appropriate, though!), and other relevant competition shenanigans.


    THIS COMPETITION OFFICIALLY STARTS NOW!

    I bet there are still some ignorant monkeys that do.

    mbease, liking how you're just laying it all out there. Essentially a no rules, everything goes comp = sweet. What will make the winner: technicality of the build, having the prettiest board, most innovative? Or is this going to require the trifecta?

    I'm starting to ramble... This should be fun.

    Read the OP. Looks like any and all skill levels are invited. Probably the ones who have a more refined technique that are going to take the prize though.

    I, for one, plan on entering despite my meager 5 boards under the belt.

    The public will decide, as well as other participants! That's the beauty of a competition like this--so many angles to be aware of. I would definitely suggest a trifecta considering the regular population on this subforum.

    Just to clarify, anyone can enter this competition if they feel they wield some skill.
    I would definitely say somebody who has built about 4-5 boards could do well enough, let alone 10-12! You'll be good.

    I will just say that a board must utilize some sort of trucks and wheels (so snowboards will not count in this particular competition).
    However, if you would like to enter a freebord, mountainboard, or the like, you are welcome to.

    I'm more than happy to provide you with an excuse to let loose your creativity and skill. Bring it on!

    Hey, thanks for your service.
    I hope you can at least view a bunch of great board builds while you're away from home to keep the stoke alive for you. It's the least we can do!

    Stay safe.

    Yes! So stoked for this! I should have my press built and my wood in hand within two weeks, then I can build and enter! I'm excited to see what people can come up with.
