America!

IMG_20121206_215407

At the start of December I flew to America with Jamie Nicholls and Nick Atkins and stayed there until the 23rd with the GB team. At the start of the trip the weather wasn’t that good so we just had to ride the rails but they were lacking on snow so the bad was in the end a benefit. Will Nangle was also out there and I spent a day filming with him in Keystone and the edit will be out soon! Me and Jamie also went and hit a perfect street spot with Nangle filming and Nick Atkins taking photos it was a sick session on a down bar and donkey kink next to each other and we got some sick shots on film and photos!

The rails.

About three days before I left I tried a standing back flip which I had already done before but this time I fell on my face and bit my lip pretty bad and had to get stitches so stupid haha! Also the last couple of days were the best weather and they had a really nice jump a Keystone so I went there and I learnt cab 10’s so I was stoked that I learnt a new trick after being in hospital. On the last day me and Billy Morgan did a couple of laps through the rails filming with the new GoPro 3 the edit is at the bottom 🙂 I flew back to Mayrhofen on Christmas Eve and had a sick day riding the pistes and got some cool presents as well! New Years Eve is always a good one here a crazy amount of fireworks!

Happy New Year 🙂

Fireworks!

 

 

Powder at Tux and more!!!

About a week ago it snowed a good foot of snow so me and my dad went up to check it out and we were amazed how much it snowed we did a little bit of hiking and found a sick bit of powder it was so much fun but a bit weird to be riding it in May!

Also the Whitelines Rail Jam right up and video came out which I am in, it was such a fun rail jam and good week! So because it is summer here now it about 28 degrees nearly everyday so we have been going to Aschau a lot to swim in the lake and do some backflips of the bridge. I am going to Camp Of Champions on the 26th of June for a week I can’t wait! I am going for the Stepchild week so maybe I will meet the team! Also I am going back to England for all of August which I am also looking forward to I am going to do some surfing and some skating and then also I am going up to York for a few days to see all my friends which is going to be awesome!!!

Here are some pics and Whitelines report and video:

RODEOS!!!!

Last week I had a few days off because it was bad weather but finally the weather cleared up so I went up  to Hintertux with Rich Hookes. It wasn’t slushy up there but the snow was quite sticky but it didn’t

Summer!!!

really matter that much, I hit the mediums for a bit and then moved to the smaller jumps to practice back  rodeos! I fell a few times but also landed a few aswell which I was good. Then the next day I went up  with my dad to practice them again I think I did 6 during the day and managed to land 4 of so that day I  was even more stoked!!! Also that day we went and did a few runs to the middle station and on the way I  hit a little cliff drop into some powder which was also really good fun! The next day I hit the mediums all  day practicing front 5 into cab 5 I managed to get it nearly every time which is good, also during the past  two days my dad came up and got some sick shots of everyone who was riding! Then today I practiced  my rodeos which I landed and the front five to cab 5, so tomorrow I think i’m gonna try some front  7’s and see how it goes 🙂 It is definitely summer in Mayrhofen its just getting hotter and hotter everyday.

Here is the video of a few rodeos that I have done!

 

Also here is a video of Nelson Pratt that has just gone online check it out!!!

Les Deux Alpes One Snowboarding camp!

On Thursday I got the train from York with Hamish McKnight to Dover, we then met Dan Wakeham and got the ferry to Calais and drove over to Les Deux Alpes for the One Snowboarding summer camp. Then on the Saturday I went up to the mountain with Nelson Pratt and Jack Shackleton. We had a look at the park and rode around then went back down. On the first proper day up the mountain we rode some pipe and the slopestyle kickers, also we met Danny Kass which was amazing!!!

Tuesday we did the same thing but rode the superpipe instead of the baby pipe which was really steep but it was good fun as well. Then I hit the kickers and got back 3 to front 3 on the slopestyle kickers – check out this video:

On the Wednesday we met Tyler Chorlton which was sick and we did the same stuff again but I got bigger air out of the pipe which I was pleased about. On the Thursday I did 3 out of the 4 fives and also learnt cab 540 switch indy which I’m stoked about! Then on Friday I got the the biggest I have  ever gone out of the pipe. Also I got cab 5’s of a bigger kicker and the we sessioned a c-box which was good fun. On the afternoons we do different activities like volleyball and football and loads more also there is a swimming pool with a ledge which is good fun to do flips and spins off.

Check out this video of my cab 5 🙂

Foggyfax

Faxface
Halifax Muck on my face

Last night we went over to Halifax to practice on the kicker, it was really foggy but not too windy which was cool, it was also wet which made it nice and quick.

I was practicing my 540’s which I can now land most of the time, so I’m stoked about that !

Only a couple more days till I’m back to Halifax to and then go down to Hemel for the Burton Scrap Metal 🙂

A little video below showing how foggy it was !
