New Contest: Make Mountainboarding Look Bigger

Post by McCarver » Mon Jul 02, 2012 10:13 am

Whether it be real or faked the idea is to make mountainboarding appear "bigger" than it currently is. Huck a trick and photoshop in a crowd, write a fake news article about mountainboarding in the xgames, do a short film, demotivational/memes, or even better if you can actually get in the news and make ridiculous claims to the media. Basically anything you can think of qualifies and there is No limit to number of entries. Prize Winner will be awarded based upon originality as well as a 2nd place winner to be decided by the "tortilla of fate" .

Contest Ends: Late August
Rules: N/A
Prizes: Will be determined based on number of entries

You got 2 months Frenchy, quit being a wuss and just make it happen. Crappy photoshop/paintbrush, and blatant lies are acceptable.

This was my first attempt at using photo editing software so pretty shoddy but I've got a few more ideas knocking around up there.

Dinosaurs are from the future, they built a time machine and travelled back in time, unfortunately they miss judged the coordinates and got stuck underground.

Nice work fellas, btw for the sake of the contest I thought I better mention that the reason mountainboarding is so big now is because it has been around as long as skating possibly surfing so feel free to use that somehow(if you can make it work).

How big do you want :)

it's own range of condoms.

I kept the surfing dirt small for two reasons.
1.I may have damaged some trademarks.
2.'surfing dirt' on a condom may provide certain connotations :eek:.

Can I turn this around a bit and enlist surfingdirters to try to convince the outside world that mountainboarding is bigger than it really is?

Post a photo of you enjoying your 'Great British Adventure' on here and all vote for each others photos, and maybe we'll take a step towards getting a company like Go Ape to take notice of mountainboarding. And if that's not enough to convince you, you could win £500 of go ape vouchers and other two wheeled prizes you wouldn't be interested in.
