Arrive between 3 to 4:30 p.m. to register. Note: Only the first 80 who sign up will be able to shred, so you might want to go ahead and register online at redbullusa.com/buttercup; its free to compete. The competition begins at 4:30 p.m. How will you be graded? There will be a jam session where, of course, boarders creativity and style will matter but only trick sequences that include buttering will count. If you dont know what that means, consider yourself in the amateur division. Thats right: All skill levels are welcome. Shredders will be split into pro and am divisions according to experience. If youre under 18, bring a legal guardian with you to the registration table.
For those who maybe just want to see snow, expect even more than that. The downtown waterfront area, which covers the terrain where Clematis Street meets Flagler Drive, will take on a ski-resort feel.
