Big Air!!!

At the end of October I went to London Freeze Festival. I drove over from Austria with some of the GB team  over night and I managed to sleep most of the journey. Me my mum, dad and brother stayed in the same place that I stayed in last year which was a big pimping apartment it was rad! The first day of the event was skiing so we went to watch a bit of that just to see how the jump looked and what the speed was. The next day was snowboarding and I was in the Battle of Britain against, Andy Nudds, Matt McCormick, Nate Kern, Dom Harington and a few others. The weather was horrible it was really windy so the speed for the jump was really slow and barely anyone was making it. We got two runs practice, two runs! Then the comp I did a back 3 tail and a back 7 but knuckled it and had to revert so I didn’t get through. Dom Harington won! Later it was the main event which Billy Morgan ended up winning!

From there I went to Modena, Italy with my dad for the Nissan StompIt big air competition. We landed in Bologne Airport and it turned out BA had left my bag in Heathrow which sucked but there was another flight so we drove to the hotel and my dad went and picked it up on the next flight. On qualification day we were meant to start at 11 in the morning but ended up starting at 5 in the evening such a long day! The jump was really nice a lot better than the Freeze jump it wasn’t to big and the drop in wasn’t to steep, I did a back 7 on my first run and landed and then tried some 9’s but kept coming up short. But I qualified in 7th to get through to the finals against, Roope Tonteri, Mathias Weissenbacher and many more I was stoked! In the finals I landed another back 7 and then tried to get a 10 but couldn’t get it around but I finished in 13th place beating Eric Beauchimen pretty happy with that so pretty happy with that result!

BIG Kickers!!! and rail session!

Yesterday was pretty sick the clouds were high up but the park was higher so it was good. I’m now only hitting the big kickers, I spun on my 3rd run which was a back 3 and then I did a few more of them off both kickers which I am pleased about and also the best part of the day was that I land two backside 7’s off the 2nd kicker which I am so stoked about!

Back 7 - Hintertux BetterPark

Sunday was rubbish weather but we made the most of it by sessioning the triple shotgun down bar which was quite long. I did some nose presses on it back lips, front boards, back blunts and more it was a fun session everybody joined in which made it a fun. So now everybody apart from me, my dad, Nate Kern and Claire Frost are the only people left but tomorrow Dom Harington comes out so it will be fun to ride with him for a few days 🙂

And lastly …. pretty stoked to get a mention in Jenny Jones’s blog, she’s been out here shredding with us for the past two weeks, its been amazing (and yes Jenny, biggest I ever hit by a long way)!!!
