This email was just sent to competitors… I am stoked on the interest and caliber of surfers entering the 2nd video contest! It is now it my court to do it justice and produce a great platform to showcase these videos. I am just not going to have time to get it in order this month with some other projects we’ve got going on… I can say it is going to be a great month and some VERY exciting things are a’happening!!! Thanks for the support. E
Thank you for registering or expressing interest in the 2nd PaddleWoo $3,000 Video Contest. My name is Erik and I run PaddleWoo and host the podcast.
Due to the interest and number of entrants I am going have to push back the due date for 2 reasons…
1. I am in the process of finding a software solution to handle the online voting and for us to have some sort of heat and round setup… So there will be a few groups of videos and then the winners will move ahead to a final.
2. Sponsorship… We have a media partner of Standup Journal and I am confident that TheInertia.com will run our second contest (they ran the first). I would like to find some sponsorship to grow the prize money for you guys. If you have ideas, I’d be happy to hear them. But for now, it is guaranteed at $3,000, and we pay (just ask the guys in the last contest… we actually paid out more than promised)
I am always open to feedback and suggestions. The goal here it create a platform to showcase the best surfing in our sport without the expense of having to fly around the world and try to get lucky with waves… Everyone’s got a shot!
The Due Date for the videos is December 4th, 2015. That gives you an extra month to get footage.
A huge congrats to Mo Freitas who won the PaddleWoo video contest. Mo won the voting, with both Colin McPhillips and Adam Champagne, from Standup Journal, having Mo in the top spot. He also had the most view on his video and most votes. Mo takes home $2,000 for the top spot. (more…)
At PaddleWoo we believe that Paddle Enhanced Surfing is the future of surfing. We are currently in the Dog Town era of our sport and athletes like Justin, Mo, Fisher, Kieran and Noa are leading the charge in progression. We at PaddleWoo want to encourage, promote and showcase their passion and talent for this sport we love so we created the PaddleWoo Video Contest and threw down a $3,000 prize for the top videos.
We are also taking registrations for the 2nd PaddleWoo Video Contest. Videos will be due by November 31st, 2015 and we are already guaranteeing at least a $3,000 prize. (if you want to sponsor the contest and help grow the prize pool contact us)
