The O'Neill Shoreditch Showdown hit the big city last Nov 21st - entertaining a 500 heavy crowd with an amazing performance from the UK's finest ski and snowboard superstars. A 50 tonne snowfall transformed Old Street's graffiti clad Red Market into an iconic London street scene providing the ultimate backdrop for showcasing the crème de la crème of UK rail riding.
The crisp November evening saw our home-grown lads turn up in force and impress spectators with an incredible show that has well and truly raised the benchmark of British street riding. The 24 man open jam that included best tricks on the bus stop, rails, post box and telephone kiosk culminated in an epic head to head final. Impressing the judges it was Sparrow Knox for snowboard and Tyler J Harding for freeski.
Designed to inspire creativity and innovation, it's safe to say the O'Neill Shoreditch Showdown exceeded all expectations. Thanks to The Snow Centre's elite crew of park shapers, the event was meticulously sculpted and received an overwhelming amount of positive rider feedback. Honoured to be part of such a unique event MC Christian Stevenson AKA DJ BBQ said "this was the best inner city rail jam I've ever had the chance to MC and certainly the first time I've ever seen a snowboarder jib a post box."
