Superpark 19!

Back in April I went to Seven Springs to Snowboarder Magazines SuperPark 19. I went over and rode with Jamie Nicholls, the setups that each resort had built were sick! The Streets rail setup was really fun to ride loads of different features.

Stoked to get a shot in this edit from the Seven Springs setup, Check it out!

Also we got some photos on the features whilst there for The Reason Magazine here are a couple taken by Mark Clavin,

Total Fight 2015!

Near the end of March I had my last comp of the season which was the Total Fight in Grandvalira in Andorra. It was a fun comp and a lot of riders were there, the wind was bad on the qualification day so we had to do everything the next day, I qualified for the finals and landed my run in the finals and finished 4th which I was stoked about!!!

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!!!!

13th Red Bull Nanshan Open !

I got an invite back to the 13th Red Bull Nanshan Open in China. This year the trip was so sick other than my bag not turning up for a few days. We were in Beijing for the first part of the trip and visited the Wall again and saw a lot of Beijing. One morning we got on the Bus over to Nanshan for the practice, it was really windy so we couldn’t hit the jumps but the rail setup was really fun so just got to ride that. I rode with Mons Roisland and Micheal Schaerer most of the time. The next day was the qualification, the weather was way better so we got to ride the jumps for the first time, I didn’t land my first run but i got my second and that put me through to the semi finals which was the next day. It was really bad light for the semis I landed my run which was cab double 9, front 7, front blunt 270 into back blunt 270, I got and 87 and qualified in 3rd for the finals. I did the same run in the finals and got 3rd place!!! I was so stoked to get third at such a fun comp with some really good riders!

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!!!
