Design Unlikely Features Update

April 19th, 2012

The inaugural Australian ‘Design Unlikely Features (DUF)’ contest is well under way, so we have decided to bring you a selection of the best entries thus far. DUF is a nation wide design competition where entrants design a custom snowboard park feature.
Got an idea? Why not draw something up!

Got an idea? Why not draw something up!

One lucky winner will have their own design built and installed in the Perisher Park, and hold the bragging rights of their own permanent park feature. On top of that, the winner will receive an a round trip to Perisher for them and a friend, 2 x two day lift passes and a full set of Analog outerwear and apparel.

A team of Australian and International personalities, including representatives of Analog US and Australia, Perisher Park Crew and Transfer Snowboard Magazine, will judge entries. Features will be judged on creativity, rideability, and buildability. The judges are looking for something fresh, imaginative, and easy to move.

Here are some of our favourites so far…
