Super Bou 3 TO interview

The European Smash summer has certainly been packed this year! The Bous Crew is prepping to close it in style this weekend in the sunny city of Barcelona with SuperBou 3. Aside from a high level competitive ground the crew’s primary focus on site is to offer a chill summer holiday experience that’s characterised by the ‘Bous Spirit’ which the the crew accommodates by booking a complete hostel with a pool and restaurant/bar for the entire weekend to facilitate various leisure activities like a pool on site, beer pong, mafia and an afterparty to cool off.

Enough reason to learn more about that ‘Bous Spirit’ from the head tournament organiser(TO) of the crew, T-BAG. In addition he updates us on the current state of the Spanish scene, their inspiration for the Bous series, how the crew divides the work and avoids TO burnouts, the future ambitions with the SuperBou series and if, given it’s format, a collaboration with Smash Summit could be an option for the future.

The history of the Smash community is filled with community leaders whose names have been forgotten, or who were never that well known to begin with. A couple of years ago one of those smashers – an influential Dutch tournament organiser (TO) who goes by the nickname of Exalador – was diagnosed with a devastating autoimmune disease called multiple sclerosis (MS), which attacks the nervous system and prevents your body from functioning correctly. Given that Exalador had a crucial role in keeping Melee alive in the Dutch community during a time when it was on the decline (between 2007 and 2011), we want to raise awareness about his accomplishments, his recent struggles, and what we can do as a worldwide family to help him.

Update: Popular streamer, YouTuber and former Melee world champion Alliance| Armada has donated to the cause and created a Reddit thread on r/smashbros that you can support here
