Snowboard Showdown Out-of-control competition leads to disaster When Freddie Ruiz and his brother, Dondi, compete, it's like two mutts wrestling over the same bone-neither one is willing to give an inch. Unfortunately for Freddie, older, stronger, better-looking Dondi usually comes out on top in every contest. Except in one area: snowboarding. Here, Freddie is clearly king of the halfpipe. So when Dondi finally pushes Freddie too far, Freddie cooks up a snowboard showdown to make Dondi look foolish and himself the star. But will Dondi take the bait, or will he somehow turn the tables on his brother yet again?

From Our Editors

Freddie and his brother Dondi have always been competitive and usually, Freddie comes up short. Dondi has a job, money, girls and now he can drive. But Freddie has something Dondi doesn`t — better snowboarding moves, more daring runs and more advanced techniques. When Dondi challenges Freddie to a little brotherly competition — a dangerous run down Devil`s Ravine — Freddie must decide whether showing his brother up is worth the risk in Matt Christopher`s Snowboard Showdown.
