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,
A couple of weeks ago was the Vans Hi Standard Big Air comp in Mayrhofen and the format was nothing over a 720 was allowed and it was all based on style and if you did a trick the judges liked you were given 20 euros so the more tricks you did the judges liked the more money you got. They also had a rail jam with the same format but you could do any tricks you wanted. I got the best under 16 rider which I won 200 euros and over the big air and rail jam I won 320 euros stoked!
I am back in the UK now, down in Cornwall and the weather has been good (so far), so I have been surfing and it has been sick! Also on Friday I got the train from Truro to Halifax to go ride Cas with Jamie Nicholls which was rad, I learnt loads of new tricks like Front Blunt to regs, Front 1 on cab 3 off, Cab 1 on Back 3 out and back 1 on switch back 1 back on to the gas pipe which I was stoked about. Then the next day it was Jamie’s 18th Birthday Party which was also good fun we skated the mini ramp that he had built in his garden and it was sick, there were some rad skaters there who killed it all night like my Vans team mate Lois Pendlebury, Dave Walker, Will Smith, Thrashmore and many many more. I had a such a fun night. The next morning I packed my stuff and started the 8 hour train journey back to Cornwall a big thank you to Jamie and his Parents for letting me stay 🙂
I also went to Milton Keynes a few days before that for the FBBB TrickBusters event, it was a rad setup. It was a cool format as well it was 1 hour practice, 1 hour jam and then the final, but in the final the judges picked tricks out of a hat and the riders had to do them and it was the person who landed the most tricks won. Some of the tricks were a bit stupid like hardway 360 on and method to frontboard. I won a girls jacket which is just what I have always wanted ….. 🙂
Here is a video from camp A at COC from the Isenseven crew who are all sick riders and they made this rad video which I managed to get a few tricks in which I am so stoked about to be in a video with some of the best European riders there is so check it out!!!!
At the weekend Beckna told me that there was a comp on in Westendorf which I could go to and compete at. We arrived late and luckily I managed to get five practice runs in which I was stoked about. The course was a box into 2 jumps which were really good fun. My first run was really bad because I bailed on it, but then I landed my second run but I didn’t hold the grab for long enough on the 7, then finally I got the run I wanted which was Half-Cab 5-0, Back 3 Tail Grab and Back 7 Mute so I was stoked about because it was the first proper 7 I have done since breaking my collarbone! So in the rookies (under 18’s) I came 5th out of 11 overall so I am pretty stoked!
Then After That I went over to Tignes with Beckna to check it out. It was a ten hour drive so we got up early I was knackered, any way when we got there we unpacked and had food and then straight to bed. The next day I saw the Xgames course and Hamish, Jamie and Jenny. Then I went riding in the Tignes park with Ben Kilner and Scott McMorris which was a fun really day just messing around jibbing on the rails! The day after that I went riding with Mark Ruparelia for the day which was fun the weather was really bad it was really windy and bad light but we made the most out of it! Also whilst we were there Thrashmore was there building a mini-ramp which broke straight away! We then went back the next day.
We managed to get back in time for the Wangl Tangl team skate battle which was amazing to watch so many sick skaters people going huge doing big methods and stalefishes! But in the end the english team won it and they were by far the best team out there they were doing the same tricks side by side it was sick!!!
