Built around the greatness of the oldest and most bad ass trick in snowboarding, the Empire Collective is hosting a contest called Method Lab. For those readers who aren’t hip in the method scene, this trick is a combination of mid-air grabs, tail kicking, and arm flailing. Just make sure that you don’t commit the ultimate sin and grab your board in front of your binding (unless you’re a Euro, then you’re allowed). I’m not only stoked on this contest because the method the first trick I ever stomped, but it will probably be one of the most entertaining events of the season with styles as varied as the people who are signing up.
Spread the method love and creativity at Tyrol Basin next Saturday or Chestnut the next day. Entry fee is a paltry $5, and you are guaranteed at least $10 worth of fun back – a 200% return on your investment.
