Find Shayboarder in San Francisco to win a 09-10 Omatic Awesome!

11 Oct, 2009

So far I’ve done two successful twitter giveaways in major cities around the United States and each time some stoked person has used the clues to track me down and win a brand new snowboard from some awesome companies!

San Francisco is the next city I visit and the perfect choice for another Shayboarder Twitter Hunt.  The hilarious folks at O-matic Snowboards and Todd Richards himself have offered up his pro model, the Omatic Awesome, to make the hunt truly fun!

If you want the free 09-10 Omatic Awesome 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 2pm (PST) on October 24th, 2009.
3. At 2pm I will start to twitter clues that will help you track down my location in San Francisco, California.  There will be 5 clues total with the last clue being the one that says exactly where I”m at.
4. Get in your car, bus, bike, skateboard, longboard…and track me down.
5. Be the first person to find me and give me a high 5.
6. Get your hands on a brand new 09-10 Omatic Awesome!


  • 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.

    Sweet deal, are you gonna be carrying the board around with you in SF?

    Stacy, probably not this year for AZ, need a reason to go there 🙂

    Fore, Usually after the 2nd twitter clue I will have the board with me, which means it’s easier to find me since I’m easier to spot with the snowboard in my hand.

    Yep too early for the shred there, I won’t be planning on snowboarding this trip. I’ll be visiting my brother who lives in NorCal, getting some family time in.
