I have been in New Zealand for 2 weeks now. Last week I competed in my first Burton open for halfpipe. There were 28 girls in the qualifying round and I managed to get in the top 10 of the field, which I was super stoked on after landing my run of Air, Air, back 5, Air, Michalchuk. Unfortunately they only took the top 5 girls through to semis, which was kinda tough but I was stoked to be in 10th place. Overall I ended up 19th out of the 35 girls including all the invited riders after semis.
I will be training the next week or so trying to get a few more of my tricks back into my run in preparation for the World Cup (NZ Winter Games) on August 27th.
Unfortunatly the weather has come in pretty hard and all the roads are closed and even the mountain shuts at times due to wind hold, but its something we have to deal with so we are having a good time chilling inside by the fires and keeping fit in the gym.
