So Rome SDS is a brand that holds it down for the local crews, the heads that ride everyday together. These crews have always push the homies forward. Think about it, how that session is always better with the crew. Well for the second year in a row the Local Gnar Contest, which is a edit of you and your crew have fun. Is won by a Michigan posse, Stewart Smith and friends came out with the favorite flick for the year as judged by the guys/gals over at Rome SDS. Also as kicker Dan from Ohio and his homies came in a respectable third.

Here's the press release.

Rome SDS Announces the Winners to the Second Annual GNAR Contest

For the second year in a row, the Rome SDS held its Local GNAR contest. It’s a chance for local snowboard crews to get out there and put together a short film about their unique perspectives on snowboarding, and get a chance to win some cash, gear and fame.

Looking for the video that most made the SDS want to go shred, Rome had a super hard time picking a winner from the pile of submissions this year. After a couple days of watching all the short videos, the crew judging the contest definitely wished it was December or January with a ton of snow in the hills.

In the end here’s how it all broke down.

In 3rd place was Dan Mizicko from Vienna, OH, taking home 2 pairs of Rome 390 bindings, 5 pairs of gloves and 5 Local GNAR T-Shirts.

In 2nd place it was Courtney Walton and her crew from Bend, OR scoring 2 Rome Artifact snowboards, 2 pairs of 390 bindings and 10 Local GNAR T-Shirts.

And the Grand Prize winner was the Local GNAR video submitted by Stewart Smith and his crew out of Lake Orion, MI. They’ll be grabbing $1000, 2 Rome Artifacts, 2 pairs of 390 bindings and 20 Local GNAR T-Shirts.

Make sure to check out the winning entries (and some honorable mentions) that will be posted on the new Rome website which will be up and running at the end of this summer.
