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!

The Indoor Brits 2014

The Brits - Chill FactorHi 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.

The Brits - Chill FactorMy 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!
