Champs since 2020.

It's our mission to make you a winner!

Duct-tape and a bright idea...

After Greg Rudolph spotted a student who had duct-taped Christmas lights to his skateboard riding around the Arizona State campus one night in 2011, he was inspired with the idea for Board Blazers LED Underglow Skateboard Lights. YouTube videos by Casey Neistat and Lil’ Wayne featuring Board Blazers soon amassed over 4 million views, and sales quickly took off.

To keep the momentum rolling, Greg and his team began running contests to promote the brand. However, he noticed the winners often weren’t just lucky – they were avid “contesters,” who knew the insider secrets to win as many prizes as possible. After a private investor acquired Board Blazers in 2020, the idea for Contest Champ took hold.

Using research, analysis, and expertise, Contest Champ is dedicated to using the secret strategies learned from these pros to make it easier for everyone to win. Now, it’s our mission to make you a winner too. Join us!
