Well, my summer was a good one (last summer i broke my arm and this summer i didn’t so that makes it good to me!!)
It started in les 2 alps france. i was there with kommunity crew for 2 weeks riding with friends and having a good time with good snow, then i jumped on a plane to head down under to new zealand for 2 months. Volcom sorted me out with a flight down there so i decided to get down to some summer training in the pipe and park for a few months. I was too late to enter the Burton NZ open but managed to get into the QP comp which was fun but bad wind and weather!!! I also did the billabong comp but only managed 25th place but still had a blast in the snow storm qualifying.
once comps were done i just hit the rail park – perfect pipe and worked on some new trick for the season with fellow scot ben kilner (who was ripping – no jokes this kid will
be big: he loves snowboarding and he is so god damn good at it ! )
so after a good stint down under it was time to head home and see the folks and my brother before it all started again.
first stop was the LDP movie premiere of Terminal Ferocity which was a blast to say the least. burton scrap metal comp in tamworth the following evening was so much
fun i even made it to the final with a hang over from hell!!! (because it was my first drink since 9 months hahah!!) Then went to castleford for another Burton Scrap metal comp then London for the ski show. check out www.whitelines.com for the ski show report. it’s like ISPO with less stuff and for 6 days way too long !!!!
then i jumped in my car and drove to schladming for the pleasure jam which thanks to my sponsors Burton turned into a pow pow photo shoot of fun. thanks Hasi and Cyril!
my next port of call was arlberg for 4 days with my Volcom team manager jan prokes and two local riders holtzi and thomas. what a blast we had check the story here http://www.volcom.com/news/
now i am finally back in zillertal shredding tux and penken when it’s not raining, booooo!!!
