Slovakia Snowboard Fest Big Air

I went to Slovakia for the Sony Snowboard Fest big air competition, It was a pretty cool comp and the resort was fun to go cruise around. The jump was good and the format of the comp was different to others i’ve been to, you had to do a 720 or more in the qualis to make it to the semis, then in the semis it was a jam format and you told them what run you want to be judged and in the final it was 3 runs best two tricks count. I all the way through to the final and my runs in the final were, back double 10, cab double 9 and cab double 10. I was stoked to land all my runs and was even more stoked to finish 2nd!!!!

Pleasure Jam!

Last weekend was the Pleasure Jam over in Dachstein, I went over from Stubai with the GB crew where the weather had been bad the whole time we were there. The practice day at the comp was bad weather as well so we just rode the rails in the course and managed to hit the first jump. The course was, rainbow rail, two jumps, multi feature of either two jumps, a cannon rail or a flat rail, then an up rail into wall ride then down rail. The next day was qualis and the weather was way better! I landed my first run which was cab 2 on, cab 9, back 7, front 7, axel stall on the wall, noseslide pretzel on the down rail. It put me first overall into the semi finals, i was so stoked! The weather came back in before semis so it was pushed to the next day. The weather was banging again the next day and i landed my run a few times in practice, I landed my first run again in semis which was, cab 2 on, cab 9, back double 10, front 7, axel stall, noseslide pretzel. That run got me through to the finals which was the top 8, I did the same run in finals and i finished 6th overall! Was so stoked on the result, can’t wait to go back next year!!!
