Red Bull Shr3d Battle


When snowboard-pros Marc Swoboda (AUT), Marko Grilc (SLO) and Wojtek Pawlusiak (POL) will each lead a team of 3 riders and battle to produce the best 3-minute clip at the Red Bull Shr3d from January 23rd to 25th, the 3×3 of snowboarding has to be recalculated. 

Amateurs from Austria, Slovenia and Poland can apply now till January, 8th 2013 to get one of the coveted grids in one of the three teams.

"3 is the magic number" – not only since Da La Soul’s hit in 1989. As long as anyone can remember the number three has a special, if not a magical meaning in religion, mythology, economy and even in the carnival. So why not in snowboarding as well? At the Red Bull Shr3d everything’s about the magic number of three: 3 teams from 3 countries with 3 riders each have 3 days time to produce a 3-minute snowboard-clip.

Amateurs will have the chance to ride with their heroes at the Red Bull Shr3d. Austrian stylemaster Marc Swodoba, Air&Style winner Marko Grilc from Slovenia and the king of all rails, polish Wojtek Pawlusiak will each lead two fellow-rookie-shr3dders as team-captains and bring out the best of their skills, their style and their creativity to capture it all on film. 

3 is the magic number...

3 is the magic number...

The 3×3 of the Red Bull Shr3d will be calculated like this: With a filmer on their side, Park, Backcountry and Street are the three missions the crews will have to accomplish within three days to produce a 3-minute snowboard-clip. The Kitzsteinhorn with its three parks, a superpipe, an easily accessible backcountry and a railgarden in Kaprun will be the perfect playground for the teams to let their creativity flow.

The produced 3-minute clip will be judged by the audience on the official party in the castle of Kaprun on Saturday, January 26th 2013. Besides the style of the riders, the variety of tricks and the creative choice of spots in the clips, camera work, cut and composition will also be reviewed. After the crowning of the best snowboard-movie, the 3-country-battle will continue on the dancefloor while three DJs from Austria, Slovenia and Poland will get the audience fired up.
