Hi guys, last week I went away on holiday to Sauze D’Oux in the Italian Alps with my family.
I had a really good time and spent a lot of my time in the park and got some really good shots on my gopro! I was really pleased to get a few safety 180’s and thank freestyle coach Marco Eydallin for his help and encouragement.
For Christmas I got a new pair of skis, the Armada BDog! I’m so happy with them as they are extremely fun and a lot more flexible than my old ones so a big thank you to my family for buying these.
Watch out for the edit dropping soon!

Ready For The Piste!
Top Coach But As No Idea What He’s Talking About!!!!!
Hi guys, recently I competed in the Brits at chill factor! It was a very good day. I came 9th out of 13 in my age group (under 16). It was my first proper competition so I’m happy with where I came.
My first run I did a 180 over the spine, sideward over the up down box, 180 over the kicker and finished it with a front 270 out of the box! That scored me 18 points. My second run I did a switch 180 over the spine, sidewards over the up down box, 180 over the spine and sidewards over the box. That scored me 19 points and luckily I was able to stay on my feet. The scariest part was my last run as I was the last person to go so everyone was watching me!
It was a great experience and I will carry on competing and hopefully start winning some medals!
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
