Vans is proud to introduce the Hi-Standard series to Europe. Events will take place in major European snowboard resorts and feature an original big air format where riders are judged on individual style, creativity and self-expression - the Vans way. Rotations over 720 are not permitted.
The Vans Hi-Standard Series is going back to the grassroots of Vans, celebrating 20 years of Vans snowboard boots in an authentic way. The concept is simple as itâs all about style rather than spinning to win. No matter if you are a seasoned pro or amateur, old or young, boy or girl â having a good session together, enjoying a famous Van Doren BBQ and celebrating the true spirit of snowboarding is all that counts that day.
The judging criteria is pretty simple, the more style and trick variety you have, the more you get paid. Each styled out trick will earn you Van Doren dollars with no repetition of tricks allowed. Alongside the Big Air contest, each event will also include a best trick rail jam as well as a prize for the most valuable rider and the worst bail.
The Vans Hi-Standard series consists of 3 stops with a total prize purse of 9.000â¬. Space is limited to 66 snowboarders per event split across two categories: under 16 and over. Both genders and all riding levels are welcome to participate, Vans will even cover your lift ticket.
