A huge shout out to our new sponsors Burton and Völkl, who are getting behind the Series and helping us to find the top freeskiers and snowboarders in the country. The SSNZ Freestyle Series has become an important part of the competitive pathway and we’re excited to see you guys getting after it!
A few words from our sponsors:
Burton is proud to be supporting the next generation of snowboarders through the Burton Snowboard Series. We believe that grassroots junior snowboarding events are an important part of creating pathways for up and coming snowboarders to develop their confidence, their skills and their snowboarding careers. Over the years we’ve seen top professional Burton riders like Carlos Garcia Knight and Zoi Sadowski Synnott progress through these types of events, going on to represent their country at an Olympic level.
The Völkl Ski Series is an exciting opportunity to see New Zealand’s up and coming athletes in action and here at Völkl we’re stoked to be partnering with Snow Sports NZ to support these events. We’ve loved watching Völkl skiers like Olympian Finn Bilous and Youth Olympic Games medallist Luca Harrington breakthrough on the world stage and we’re proud to be backing the next generation as they kickstart their competitive careers.
