Billabong Flaunt It all girls snowboard tour returns for a 5th season with stops across North America
Billabong is proud to announce the start of the 5th season of the Billabong Flaunt It Tour! Flaunt It is an All-Girls Slopestyle & Rail Jam snowboard series that is aimed at giving girls from all levels a chance to Flaunt It, while providing over $30,000 in cash and prizes for the girls to vie for. Since 2010, Flaunt It is a part of the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Event Tour schedule.
The first 6 events throughout the USA and Canada are Swatch TTR 3* ranked events, which will have a $2000 cash purse at each event. The first place winner from each event will also receive airfare and accommodations to the series Finals at Sierra-At-Tahoe. For the final stop of the Flaunt It Tour, the event is a Swatch TTR 4* event where there will be a cash purse of $10,000 with lots of additional product and prizes!
The format consists of a morning Slopestyle jam, followed by an afternoon Rail Jam. While there is some serious cash and prizes up for grabs, this contest series was designed with fun in mind! Each competitor will be allowed to do as many runs as possible with the judges watching throughout the day to determine the standout riders. At each event, every competitor will receive a gift bag and a free lunch.
Each event, including the series finals is open to all female riders (limited to 35 girls/50 for finals). Registration is first come, first serve, and can be done at www.billabong.com/flauntit .
