Lib Tech and Snowboy Productions are stoked to bring back the Downtown
Throwdown to Seattle on October 8, as well as adding our new stop in San
Francisco on October 29...it's gonna be BANANAS!
In the past 5 years this event has grown from a great local event to the
biggest and most respected urban snowboarding event in the world, with a
focus on the up and coming snowboarders who are shaping the industry.
"I'm humbled at how big this event has grown, and definitely excited about
its future" says Snowboy Productions President Krush Kulesza. "With Seattle
and our new SF stop, plus our AM qualifier series (The Feeders!) in
Portland, Spokane and Sacramento, we've got the whole west coast covered
from the Bay to the Border."

Bailey, Johnny Lazz, Ted Borland, Jake Kuzyk, Dylan Thompson, Austen
Sweetin, Jess Kimura, Chris Larson and a lot more. Each stop will feature

who will join past winners Dan Brisse, Jed Anderson (twice), Nick Visconti
and Ryan Paul as the next Downtown Throwdown champ.
