Two weekends and two slopestyle comps in a row. Finn won 11 & under last week and 13 & under this weekend with some good kids in the mix from Vancouver. Highlight of his day today was stomping his first ever Misty 5 (corked 540) after trying it for the first time on Friday while sick as a dog and making it around 360. His winning run was: back lip 180, cab 1 tail, method, misty 5, back board- gap-backboard 180, front board, scoring him the highest point total of all snowboarders in all categories. Still undefeated in slopestyle.
We have a spot in the U11 Mt Baker Banked Slalom qualifier in a couple of weeks so that is the next big event we are looking forward to.
Tristan blowing up the Snowboard Mogul course at this years WSSF. It should have been one of those epic days of soft spring snow but as a true mogul course would have it hard packed and iccy. He might not of won the Gold but definitely had a decent crack at it!
Snowboard tricks are aerials or maneuvers performed on snowboards for fun, or in competitions. Most often, these maneuvers are performed on obstacles such as jumps, halfpipes, quarterpipes, hips, handrails, funboxes, or ledges, or on the surface of the snow. Many have their origins in precursory board sports such as skateboarding and surfing.
