At the weekend I competed at Hazelwood Ski World in a three event comp. The wind was very strong but I still got a good score in the second round at 1 @ 13m in the second round after not running 14m in the first – can’t believe I got 5.5 buoys but didn’t make it through the gates. I was pretty please with 1@13 because I’ve not slalomed trained between comps.
In trick I got good scores but could have done a lot better. My toe runs we the best they have ever been and I scored every single one of my tricks in the tun in the second round. However my hand runs were not so good. Most of my wake tricks were flat which doesn’t normally happen and cost me a lot of points, but both my scores were over 2000 which I am very pleased about.
In jump I did well. In the second round I matched my PB from the Gosfield comp of 11m and got all my other scores from both rounds into 10m. All my jumps were solid and I landed all of them. I’m a long way off some of the other girls but I’m happy that I’m solid right now.
During the comp all the selectors were watching and deciding the team which was very nerve racking but after the comp we all swam in the back lake to cool down and had loads of fun jumping in off the high decking!
Thank you to George and Flo Hazelwood for running the comp and John Battleday and Arron Davies for all the coaching.
