Take 50 tonnes of snow, dump it in one of the capitals coolest areas, throw in a sprinkling of iconic London street fixtures then invite 20 of the UK’s best skiers & snowboarders and we give you, O’Neill Shoreditch Showdown. Putting a stamp on a secret EC2 venue, the exclusive snow event will land in the big smoke on Thursday 21st November to put UK street riding well and truly on the map.
Sandwiched between a selection of hip bars and late night cafes, the East London venue will create a striking backdrop for a floodlit night of urban jibbing from our country’s finest. Bringing mountain life to the streets, the inner-city playground will resemble a film set of an authentic snow-filled London street. Featuring an original double-decker bus, telephone kiosk, red pillar post box and a multitude of rails, the stage is set for next level creativity and progression.
Opening its doors to a select crowd of 500 successful ticket winners and VIPs, this exclusive street-lit contest will show London’s east side how world-class UK street riding is, while a live VJ set and on-site graffiti installation makes this event fresher than the hipster farmers’ market down the road.
And if this isn’t enough to look forward to, there are even talks of a secret after party with special guest artists. So……. keep your eyes on www.oneillshoreditchshowdown.com and #oneilluk for further updates.
