British Snowboard & Freeski Championship 2017

Big Air!

Hi guys,

I recently took a trip out to Laax, Switzerland to train and compete in the British Snowboard and Freeski Championships, The Brits!

In the first week we were trying to fix some runs together aswell as achieve new tricks we may not have tried before. The main trick I wanted to achieve while I was out there was an underflip which I managed to land within my first few days! I was super stoked on it and happy to get it done early on in the trip!

The Laax Superpipe!

The second was competition week. I competed in Slopestyle, Halfpipe and Big Air. First up was slopestyle, the weather was very bipolar and meant in the end we only got one run each. I was happy with my results placing 4th in U16 and 12th overall! Next, halfpipe where the weather was still poor but not as bad as the previous day. I placed 4th in my age group and 8th overall which I was happy with as I never ride halfpipe back in the Uk. Finally we had big air, the weather was perfect however I wasn’t having a great day and ended up placing 4th in the u16 and 17th overall.

Over the two weeks I had a great time and was so happy to have learnt new things including an Underflip which was one of my main goals for the trip. I would like to give a big thanks to James Webb and Rob Taylor for coaching me along with others over the two weeks. I was happy with most of my results and what I have learned!

Hi guys

So recently I was awarded ‘Camper Of The Year’ by British Freeski Camps. I was presented with a pair of Faction Kennedy skis, a Faction jacket, Faction ski pants and a British Freeski Camps t-shirt.

I would like to thank every one at British Freeski Camps for nominating me and presenting me with such amazing prizes. I’ve had my Marker Griffon bindings mounted and really enjoyed riding them at Snozone, Castleford.

Over the year I’ve really enjoyed getting coached by Beckyand Andy Bennett and everyone else over at British Freeski Camps at Halifax and Rossendale. I feel that I’ve improved a lot and i can’t wait to put these new skills into practice during the British Indoor Slopestyle Championships (The Brits) next month.

Again thanks to Ski Olympic for their sponsorship

Shred……Snozone Style!

Hitting the rail!

Hey guys

Here’s a selection of pics and a short video of me last night at Snozone Castleford. I’ve been skiing since I was 5 years old but have only been skiing freestyle since April 2013.

Since April I have come on loads. I started off going straight over boxes and just trying basic grabs such as safety grabs. As I progressed on I was starting 180’s. After that I started to do boxes sideways and different grabs such as mutes and other straight tricks like daffies. Just recently I have moved on to doing  360’s and rails sideways.
I love skiing and I just wanted to say thanks to the freestyle instructors at Xscape, Matt, Nick, Danny, Nubiel and Ian. These are the people who have helped me come on and progress to where I am now.

I hope in the future I can come on even more and start competing in competition when I feel the times right
