Garden Cup 2020 at Louif Paradis' Backyard

First stop of the Garden Cup and damn this is a sick setup in the backyard of Louif Paradis' home in Canada and all the homies came over for a little jam.

"It’s not a contest, it’s not a production, it’s not a gathering, it’s a little bit of everything. In a day where everyone is making tremendous efforts to stop the spread of the pandemic, what is snowboarding’s place? We wanted to come up with something that would allow us to be together, to ride together again, in a format that would be Covid conscious. It’s part of our responsibility, as members of the snowboard industry, to be examples for the people looking at us.
Three stops, Twelve invited riders, two filmers, a photographer, Chef Coté, no crowd, masks. Everyone votes for their respective Top 3, and the winner leaves with eternal glory, nothing else. Who’s got Quebec’s best backyard set up? Here’s the Garden cup."
