Local GNAR

The Local GNAR video competition was birthed from the Syndicate to promote and support local crews who make snowboard videos with their friends. The original locals’ video contest, Local GNAR has continued to showcase the roots of snowboarding through self-produced edits from crews around the world. And every year we publish videos and reward a crew with $1,000 cash and a slew of product. Through the Local GNAR, the evolution of shred cinematography has shown that there is no limit to style, quality, or creativity and Local GNAR has been cultivating this idea for six years strong.

Local GNAR 2011 Entries

The 5th annual Local GNAR winner was Andrew Shummer and crew, with an entry filled with great filming, editing, and riding. With shots from the street mixed with backcountry flavor (a gnarly road gap) and at least one solid pow line, the entire Rome SDS office was itching to get on the hill. They had excellent intros into each segment and kept the whole video to a quick edit with some banger tricks. Truth is, all the finalists left us wishing for a sooner opening day, but this edit took the cake as the Local GNAR champion of 2011!
