Be Part of the WSF Banked Slalom World Tour

Launched in October 2014, the BST is an international campaign to promote and celebrate the history of snowboarding. In its first edition, the 1667 riders took part in the tour that crossed 8 countries worldwide and organizers hope the upcoming 2015/16 tour will be even bigger. However, this could not be done with proper support from all of you out there; WSF invites all of you to organize a BS contest yourself, getting a support from them on how to do it.

Banked slalom combines the roots of snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding. The past and the future meet in the banked slalom, the original discipline that started the whole snowboarding mania off. Today's WSF Banked Slalom Tour concept is to offer a platform and network within currently existing events and support to create new events. And it might be just your local crew or you, who might make it happen; a Banked Slalom event in your backyard.

Banked slalom is an easy way to bring more attention to snowboarding, from the media to new consumers: it is an all-ages discipline, a low risk sport and people have a lot fun competing in contests that do not require professional skills. WSF will give technical support to those who have never organized a BS event and will also support the PR and communication for those events that had been already planned for the upcoming season.

There is no cost for organizers to participate in the BSL World Tour so if you are up for the challenge and would like to be part of those legendary contests, email the WFS crew at for more information. The goal is to include a minimum of 10 banked slalom events worldwide this year.
