Find Shayboarder in Denver and get a 09-10 Never Summer Snowboard!

07 Jun, 2009

With my 26th birthday rapidly approaching on June 12th, I thought how great would it be to have a giveaway on my birthday. The fine crew at Never Summer was up for donating a board to my Birthday giveaway and then I just needed to come up with the giveaway idea. South of the North did a really fun Easter Hunt earlier this year, but with my giveaway there’s only one snowboard so I tweaked the idea and came up with this!
On June 12th, 2009 when I turn 26 years old I’ll be spending my birthday in Denver, Colorado to take in a Rockies vs Mariners game that evening but earlier that day…I’m free to do whatever I want. So in order to get this free brand new 09-10 Never Summer snowboard, you’ve gotta find me and sing me Happy Birthday!
At noon (MST) on June 12th, I’ll start putting clues on, clues that will help you track down the location where I will be at and once you find me and sing me happy birthday (it’s only fitting), you get to have a brand new 09-10 Never Summer snowboard.

If you want the free 09-10 Never Summer snowboard you must follow these steps:

1. Sign up to follow shayboarder on twitter. Probably the best idea to get the SMS Text updates to your phone on the day of.
2. Check updates starting at noon (MST) on Friday, June 12th.
3. At noon I will start to twitter clues that will help you track down my location in Denver, CO.
4. Get in your car, bus, bike, skateboard, longboard…and track me down.
5. Find me and sing Happy Birthday to me.
6. Get your hands on a brand new 09-10 Never Summer Snowboard!


  • There is only one snowboard to win.
  • If you happen to know my cell number, you are not allowed to use that to track me down. That is cheating.
  • There is only one snowboard to giveaway…so if you work as a team or partners, I’ll let you battle out who wins it.
  • It would be common courtesy to not re-sell this board so please respect getting a free board and if you don’t need it, pass it onto someone who does.


Huge props to Never Summer Snowboards for helping put on this giveaway! Check out Never Summer at

    Maybe you could toss in a binding or two if I wear a dress while tracking you down and sing "happy birthday" to you marilyn monroe to JFK style?

    That would be classic Marius!

    Sorry you won't be in town M! I don't know how much luck I'll bring the Rockies, I grew up in Seattle so always a Mariners fan 🙂

    RVR, that would be awesome and definitely worthy of something extra, no promises though!
