Competition shots from Canada

Coaching the Aussie kids leading up to the International Children’s Games last season inspired me to do some competing myself. I started following the BC circuit and was fortunate to hang out with a few local Kelowna teams and their coaches. I learned more about gates, maintaining speed and equipment tuning. It’s amazing what a good wax will do and the best way to prepare it for each race. My races were typically against 3 other riders each heat. The comps were held twice at Big White and once at Red Mountain. Thanks RIDE Snowboards for sorting me out with the sweet deck!
