Stylewars has been the number one gathering of snowboarders in the Southern Hemisphere for a few years now, it’s successes have been built on its festival style week-long gathering of not only snowboarders but also top-line music acts that rock Falls creek resort every night of the event.

Stylewars is more than just a snowboard event but a celebration of the snowboarding lifestyle. It brings the best pros from around the world to Australian soil and allows them to hang out and progress their riding in a three-day session on a purpose built park at Falls creek that can easily be described as a park on steroids.

The snowboarding at Stylewars is easily the most impressive you’ll see in the Southern Hemisphere each year and it is a direct result of the stress free competition format that sees 3, 2-hour sessions over 4 days. The invite list is long and star studded as internationals fly from all-over the world to get their summer-shred in Down Under.

Stylewars is one of those events that can catapult a riders career overnight, putting them in the spotlight of international snowboard media who are dreaming of snowboarding during sweltering summers North of the Equator. Riders like Torstein Horgmo of Norway, Charles Reid of Canada and Australia’s own Robbie Walker and Ryan Tiene have all gained international recognition by shredding this event apart.
The Music Line up for 2009 is again incredible and will be entertaining the pros and chillers well into the wee hours at Falls Creek at The Man Hotel.
Here’s the line-up: (includes some of the world’s best hip hop crews, soul musicians and turntablists)
Steve Spacek
RuC.L with Space Invadas
