So this is what i’ve been up to this summer, not been wakeboarding long but i’m starting to get the hang of it.
Here’s a few shots from last season riding at Kaltenbach, Austria just before I injured my ankle.
I’ve been pretty quiet over the summer due to an ankle injury. Luckily for me Wakeboarding at my local cable helped strengthen it up and I was able to get back on a snowboard a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a quick edit I made with my new Contour Roam 2 camera.
Last week i headed over to Kaltenbach which is just down the road from Mayrhofen and i entered the Zillertal Valley Ralley competition. The weather wasn’t great but i managed to stomp a back double 1080 in my run which won me 1st Place. I was surprised with the level of riding and it really made me step up and do bigger tricks. Overall it was a fun day and a nice competition, the next stop is at Zillertal Arena so i’m looking forward to taking part in another event.
In April i got the train from Mayrhofen to Meribel and joined the DC team there for shred days. Continue reading
This winter i entered the O’Neill evolution for the first time. I thought it was time to start competing in 6star TTR competitions.
I found it nerve racking as the jump was prettyyyy biiig but i pulled it together and got stuck straight into training. Continue reading
So after some fun out in Austria it was back to the uk again and whilst beck there i heard that there was a rail jam in Hemel and thought i would show my face. It was a sick comp and there was a great show of people for the event.
The format was a jam session that was judged and then 8 people from the jam session would be put into the final knock out stage which was head to head rounds. Continue reading
This is just a very short edit with some shots form Hintertuxt. Nothnig fancy or special just a couple of shots i got while i was there. Thanks to Albert Binnekade for doing this for me.
So people its been a while and i now have good enough internet to smash through some blog updating to here goes 😀
So to start off i have decided to go to Europe this season for a change and hit up some comps out there instead of returning to the states for the season. Now here comes the Big one…… Im braving it in a CARAVAN!!! Yes your read that right i said caravan. Its a bit different to the big houses and sharing with lots of people but lets face it times are hard even with working all summer money has been a real struggle so we are trying a new approach. Now heres the thing accommodation in Breckenridge whilst staying with 6 people still set me back around £1300 yeah pretty steep and thats not including the £600 flights, the transfer and the lift pass etc.So with that in mind when i found that i was only paying €500 for 6 months on the campsite i was pretty happy yes i will have to pay some extra bills at the end of the season for gas and electricity but its not going to cost me anywhere near the same as the state. You might say what about the price of a caravan? Well i have a friend call Gaz Rowntree and he is one of the greatest people out there. I met him whilst wake boarding in the summer and we became friends and long story short he has let us take his caravan around Europe for the winter. The man is a legend and hopefully will be coming to see us in the winter. All that out of the way now its time to get on with my season.
So the first stop was Dachstein Austria for the pleasure Jam and that is where i first set the caravan down. Continue reading
