back to the roots of snowboarding
Friends, fun and creativity: that is what snowboarding is about, and that is exactly what Red Bull and Nitro Snowboards want to showcase with their new event series "Red Bull Hammers with Homies". This first ever team battle team e open to every snowboarder focuses on style and team spirit, instead of pure performance and individual riders. In different national slopestyle qualifiers -like Italy, Finland and other countries from all over the world- crews of three riders will battle against each other to define which one is the best crew in the country. At each stop, a local hero rider will scout the best team, that together with him/her will represent their country at the World Final in Livigno on April 7-10th. Shred with your homies, get support from a pro and hang out with likeminded riders from all over the world? That is very hard to beat!
Snowboarding enthusiasts (male/female) with a medium to experienced level, aged 16+ (or 18+ depending on the country).
A crew consists of 3 riders, with a maximum number of 15 crews per qualifier.

All jumps will be smaller than 16 meters. Maximal rotation allowed is 900°. No triples, no quads.
Creativity, style, team interaction and trick execution are the aspects that the judges will take into consideration.
A 2 hours jam session where crews (max 15 per day) can exploit their riding + knock out heats in the final (top 8 crews) is the unique format that will offer a great day of snowboarding and will define the best crew of the country!
The pros / judges
In all national qualifiers, a local pro rider will judge the participating crews together with other selected judges. Pro athletes like Eero Ettala, Davide Boggio and more will be some of the judges involved in this new project! Afterwards, these pros team up with their winning crew to compete together in the Red Bull Hammers with Homies World Final.
The World Final

A proper state-of-the- art course will be welcoming all the national champions to offer a great level of riding and an incredible show for all the spectators, along with other side activities, afterparty and more!
