The 2007 season has come to a close and 2008 is just around the corner. I've put up a few new pictures and my best guess of where I'll be this year on my site, so you can check it out if your interested.
The 2007 World Ski and Snowboard Festival has officially ended, and went out with a bang. The 80's style prom was one of the highlights, everyone was dressed up and having a good time.
The Japanese contingency was strong once again, taking both the women's and men's pipe finals, and I ended up 5th. It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait for next year.
I'm super pumped about the roxy chicken jam, it was an amazing pipe, and all of the girls were going off. I ended up 6th on Friday, and I'm really happy with that, definitely my best result of the season.
I'm just in Calgary now for the nationals, I took 2nd yesterday in the pipe, I think that's my 4th silver medal this year, so we'll see if I can step it up next season. Only one contest left, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler in a few weeks, so I'll keep you posted.
Another double contest weekend is over, with another good result. The US Open was really fun, unfortunately I messed up and didn't make it to finals. But I did manage to rush up to Stoneham for the world cup finals, taking a 4th place on Sunday. Onto the Chicken Jam tomorrow...
I made it through the double FIS World Cups in Calgary this weekend with 5th and 7th place finishes. The 22 foot pipe was pretty big, and showed Brad Martin some love by putting him in 3rd - the only Canadian medal for the weekend.
I had a productive weekend in Whistler at the Showcase Showdown. Another 2nd place, pretty pumped on it!
Sorry for the delay, I was having some problems accessing the site.
After a somewhat disappointing result at the World Championships, Crispin and I made our way to Laax for the European Open. After bad weather postponing the finals, the event went off the next day with amazing weather and a great half pipe. The Canadian's pretty much killed it with Crispin grabbing the gold and myself with a silver. Although many of the top riders were in Aspen for the X Games, it still felt good to be on a podium once again, and both of us are stoked to be coming back to Canada with a bit more than we came over with.
After three weeks of pumping iron, jumping around on trampolines, diving boards and anything else we could get our hands on in Montreal, I'm pretty beat but I'm glad I did it.
I've just landed in Squamish, BC, my new home base for the season...I can't wait, it should be a good one!
Well I'm back from New Zealand now, and I've decided I'm not ready for winter just yet. The flight was long but well worth the wait, we had a really fun trip down there again, but I'm glad to come back just in time for some good surf.
Don't just hope they'll win, help them win! Buy a bracelet.
Welcome to my site, thanks for checking it out. A big shout out goes to Jon Burke at Demandesign for setting it up.
I've just returned from Whistler, where I was riding on the Blackcomb Glacier for three weeks with the national team. We had great weather and a pretty good summer pipe, check out my video section for some clips.
