Shred Down Austrian Masters, Tignes and Wangl Tangl!!!

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!!!
