The Future is now!
Progression was the aim of the game, and that is exactly what took place! During week one, the professional Red Bull Athletes took it from the bag jump to the step-up, systematically ticking off new tricks theyd learned in the first few days of the camp.
The unique set-up provided a perfect training environment with the bag jump and the step-up right next door. That, combined with the professional coaching team proved in-valuable for the athletes, allowing them to focus on taking their riding to the next step. The shift in the level of riding was huge, so much progression was achieved in such a short space.
The vibe at Snowpark was electric, with so many talented snowboarders in one spot you could see everyone feeding off the energy, each time a rider dropped the whole focus of the park would instantly become their next move.
Come week two when the rookies rolled in, it was really good to see the pros from the previous week riding alongside and encouraging the younger snowboarders to step it up you couldnt measure how stoked some of the younger crew were to have an opportunity like this.
The level of skill amongst the rookie crew was un-believable, it makes you wonder where these guys are going to be and what theyll be doing on their boards in a few years time.
I was working on some frontside and backside spins, trying to get those dialled, its really good. Im having so much fun, its perfect today, its pretty much the biggest jump Ive ever hit.
