SHRED FOR CHUMPY DAY
FRIDAY 8TH JULY 2022
The annual Shred for Chumpy day this year will be Friday 8th of July, 2022. Held in your local resort (Check your resort’s event page), in the ocean, where there are waves or anywhere you want to honour Chumpy’s legacy.
Close friends, family, colleagues, fans, and those showing their respect spend the day celebrating Chumpys life in the way his friends believed he would love the most – riding and surfing.

Chumpy represented Australia in 2010, 2014, and 2018 Winter Olympics in snowboard cross, becoming a two-time world champion.
He also competed in the Winter X Games, the FIS Snowboarding World Championships for many years, and the New Zealand Winter Games.
Aside from snowboarding, Chumpy was remembered by friends as a great musician, ocean lover, and all-around generous human.
His life inspired many to live out their dream of snowboarding, and his passion for encouraging the younger generation was unrivalled.
In 2016, Chumpy teamed up with Red Bull to put on ‘Chumpy’s Boarding House’ – a program Chumpy created to mentor and coach eight of the best up-and-coming riders in Australia.
Beyond that, Chumpy became a regular at the resorts across Australia, teaming up with junior programs such as Thredbo’s ‘Mountain Academy and Ryan Tiene’s ‘Turn & Burn progression camps to inspire and train future Olympians whilst keeping everyone smiling.
Chumpy touched the lives of so many, not only in the snow community but also in the Australian sporting community.
