A little about me. I started snowboarding in 2009 but only did it here and there afew times a year usually at Hillend but there were some trips abroad and up to Glenshee and Aviemore. I tried lots of different sports with friends and every time I got bored I would go back to snowboarding again until I found the next one to do. In February 2013 me and my Dad went on holiday to Kaprun in Austria and I decided on the plane that snowboarding was probably the sport for me as I kept coming back to it, freestyle looked cool and that on the holiday I would learn a 360. At the end of week I landed my first 3, and also had my first heavy fall but that didn’t deter me.
Since then, I have started riding, 3 or 4 times a week. I like riding in the mountains best as the park conditions are normally insane with big jumps which give you the best opportunities’ to learn better bigger tricks that we don’t get here to do here in the UK. I like now that I’ve grown up and progressed I’m now able to help the smaller kids with tricks and things like that as I used to be the smaller kid and people were always really nice to me. I enjoy compitions and big events like shows as it allows me to meet my friends from all over the uk. I used to get nervous at comptions and that but now they don’t effect me so I’m able to just have a good time which normally works out better that way.
When I’m not not snowboarding I enjoy spending time with my friends, a bit of Netflix, going to the gym (because I’m hard) and sailing
