The coolest contest of the year is here, and it’s powered by the team at Fuse Lenses. The idea is simple: switch it up.
Here’s what you have to do to enter (and yes, YOU can enter, there are categories for everybody from groms to pros):
Film yourself doing the same trick both switch and regular (in whatever order you prefer). No edits or cuts, you must have raw footage (scrubbing is allowed to speed up time between tricks, if you’d like).
Load your footage to Instagram and tag #FuseSwitchItUp while making sure to follow @fuselenses and @wakeboardingmag. We here at Wakeboarding will be the judges, while Fuse is providing the killer prize packs.
The contest runs until Sept. 3. The winners will be announced at WAKE AWARDS at Surf Expo.
Here is an example of a video that would work. This is Guenther Oka throwing a switch and regular wrapped toeside backside 540 back-to-back from his “Pros Learn a New Trick” video last year.
We’re stoked to see what you come up with, whether it’s your best, biggest 180 to half cab 180 or something as tech as Guenther’s, show us your skills, your creativity, and what you’ve got to take home some killer prizes!
