Just about to leave Laax Switzerland now after an epic week of riding in one of my favourite places, finished 10th out of 57 riders in the European Open Slopestyle event yesterday, stoked with my result. This bumped me up into TTR number 9. Today the Halfpipe finals is going off good luck to all you girls competing in that! Here are a few pictures enjoy!

First contest of the 2010 season, I went to Avoriaz France for a week with family which was really fun just cruising around and getting back into riding after my but injury! I drove with Gilly Seagrave from Morzine to Saalbach Hinterglum for 10 hours to the Roxy Chicken Jam in Austria. I am staying with all the Roxy girls, have had a great few days riding and today was the semi finals. I finished in 11th place which is my best result to date in a 6* TTR. That has put me in TTR ranking numero 12, stoked! My run consisted of a switch boardslide on the rainbow box into a backflip, into a back 3 mute, then into a nollie front flip off the up box! Shout out to Enni Rukajärvi, who is killing it and finished in 1st place! Hopefully I will have some more pictures to go up after the event! For now here is a picture of me and my girl Silje Norendal on the poma, now it is time to party, and then heading to the European Open tomorrow, ROAD TRIP!

The Woodward edit is now finished, check out the Jones, Lisa, Cherly, Lesley and myself in action! hope you guys like it! First off we had to do the introduction, "safety" learning how to fall into the foam pits, forward rolls, real basic stuff! Stay watching though to see rodeo's, doubles from all of the girls! We had soo much fun there and I felt I learned loads, can't wait to get back on my board now and ride a decent powder so I can try some of the new things I learned!

Having an awesome time here in the US, have been going to Woodward lots and learned something new, Double Backflip! I went with Jenny on a mission to try it tied onto a suspended rope , we both really got into the session and learned it on the trampoline, so stoked as we both stomped them! We are putting together an edit from Woodward and that will be up on the Cooler website soon so will keep you posted on that. For now just check this very short clip...
Christmas is getting close now, we bought a really cute real tree for our apartment out here in Frisco, looking forward to getting back home to see friends and family!

It's snowing today here in Frisco whoo, just about to go shopping at the outlets in Keystone for some crimbo bargains! I have not ridden for a week as the 3rd day I overshot a kicker at Keystone to the flat so now I have a lovely big bruise on my Coccyx! Really hope I can get back on my board sometime this week as the pipe is perfect in Copper and I can't wait to start training again. We went to Woodward the other day, the place is amazing. I got through the induction just struggled with the forward rolls! But we rode the snowflex kicker and that was quite low impact on my backside as it is into a foam pit,never ridden snoflex before so that was a different experience!

Despite the wind and poor visibility up on the Hintertux Glacier, we managed to squeeze in a couple of good kicker days to get some practice before the Horsefeathers Pleasure jam. I found out the day before I had a starting position so myself, Jamie Nicholls aka PJ, Jack Shackelton and Lewis Courtier-Jones headed over to Schladming to hit up the 4* TTR Event.
The park was awesome, really nice floaty kickers, on Qualification day the women only got one run qualification due to bad visibility and high wind up on the Dachstein glacier. I stomped my first qualification run so that put me in a good position for the following day where we had our 2nd run. I stepped it up a notch and qualified in 4th place for the finals. In the finals I didn’t manage to lay down my tricks as planned, I finished up in 9th place so it wasn’t to bad for the first contest of the season. This put me at #16 in the World TTR Ranking. Check out the Whitelines review here.
At the moment I am currently on the train in the middle of the Alps traveling from Jenbach, Austria to Zermatt Switzerland. In total my journey should take around 8 hours, which isn’t too bad! Time for a break! I am heading to Zermatt to complete my level 2 BASI Instructor course.

This past weekend has been crazy, I had soo much fun. The finals of both the Snowboarding and Skiing were insane in fact I have never seen a skiing final quite like it. My friend Silje from Norway came over and we got down to some serious shopping on Oxford Street on Friday and chilled out for a few days at the London Freeze promoting the new JBL Roxy headphones, it involved a lot of dancing at our own silent disco! Check out the dude in the pink he was rocking. The public were loving it.
