On Saturday 26th July, Oakley will take the annual Shred Shop Challenge to Thredbo, NSW. In its third year the Oakley Shred Shop Challenge is designed to support core snow retailers with a fun, yet competitive snowboarding event to pay homage to these stores and give them a moment in the spotlight. 12 key retailers from NSW, VIC and New Zealand will battle it out in an authentic winner takes all skills event for a cash prize and year-long bragging rights.
Joining the event will be key members of the Oakley Australia Snow Team including Olympic Snowboarder, Scotty James as well as Pro-Snowboarders Ryan Tiene and Jake Koia, who will be in attendance spurring on the contestants and judging the competition alongside Transfer Magazine Editor, Alex Horvath.
The event will culminate in the Official Shred Shop Challenge After-Party at the Banjo Patterson Inn, Jindabyne. Guests will be treated to a special live performance by legendary DJ/Producer P-Money from New Zealand. The after-party is open to the public with no cover charge. Drinks will be flowing from 9pm.
