The event was born in the loins of Lib Tech’s Holy Oly Revival…starting as the side show to the aerial trickery and the 1000 method onslaught of the giant quarterpipe, it grew like all good fungus grows…year after year it adapted, progressed and now, like the cheese in the classic kids song Farmer in the Dell, it stands alone. Make your travel arrangements now, because all roads, flights and ferry rides eventually lead to Tube City – Population Radness!
The event will consist of a highly creative zone of metal tubes, lift towers, propane tanks and other assorted and recycled metal in a hike-able, skatepark-inspired layout.
“The Summit’s tubes are the best things to jib ever. Put them all in one place and rock the vote!” says Lib Tech pro and Ballard resident Jesse Burtner.
“I was just really stoked to use a reference to the Farmer in the Dell in the press release” said event creator and Mervin Mfg Global Events guy Krush Kulesza.
Prizes will be given out to people who deserve em and someone will be appointed the MAYOR of TUBE CITY for downright awesomeness.
Pat Bridges and the fine folks at Snowboarder Magazine are also giving out a SUPERPASS invite to Superpark to one deserving shred at the end of the event. This is a pretty big deal.
Thanks to our amazing sponsors GNU Snowboards, Arnette, Lib Tech, Poler and Snowboarder Magazine.
