Ripstyle & Rollernews Innovation Challenge 2011

Thursday, April 21st, 2011


To celebrate the release of the Ripstyle Brand 2011 Livestyle footwear collection, Ripstyle Brand and Rollernews have joined forces to bring you the 2011 Ripstyle & Rollernews Innovation Challenge 2011.

If you have an inventive mind, the skill to make your visions reality, and a video camera to document your innovation, this is a great opportunity for you to win some Great Ripstyle Products!

Quoting Mark Korte of Ripstyle Brand:

Even in my days as team manager at USD, I wanted to challenge people to be innovative and be leaders, not followers.

So many of my old team were simply that, a lot of people do not realize that back then the team was so amazing simply because they inspired each other daily. New tricks, variations of old tricks…

The contest is to come up with a new solid trick, it can really be anything. Judges will be Rollernews and the Ripstyle Inline Team. Send in the video (details below), and it will be judged. Bonus points for not taking yourself too serious!

Rules & How to send your video(s)

  • Your clips have to be 30 seconds to 1 minute long, no music, featuring an original trick or switches. You can enter as many entries as you want.
  • Keep your clips in good quality but keep in mind that the filesize must not exceed 75 mb. If your file is too big, resize the rendered video or lower the compression rate a bit.
  • Include your name in the video’s filename
  • To share your video, go to this url, enter the password “bobisaskater” (without the quotes) & upload your entry.
  • Post a message in the forums or on facebook, including the filename of your video. Validated entries will be posted on youtube.



You as a winner, will get a full set of Ripstyle Gear consisting of one pair of shoes of your choice from the 2011 Ripstyle Livestyle Collection + “Sneaky Oogler” Sunglasses + “Simple Pile Up” T-shirt + Cap / hat of your choice + Bunch of wristbands + Set of magnets (4 different designs) + Set of rubber coasters (3 different designs) + Purse Holder + Cosmetic Mirror + necklace + zipper lanyard
