Oxford Competition

A few weeks ago I competed at a competition in Oxford. I had a great time and got some really good scores too getting a PB in every event! In slalom I finally ran 14 meters which feels crazy to say after getting 5 buoys twice and 5.5 buoys once! In trick I got a PB of 2750 points and in jump I improved my best by over a meter going 17.5m! I was super happy with this and it means that if I make the British Team I will have qualified to jump at Europeans!

Thank you to everyone who helped organise the event to make it so enjoyable and fun and to all the judges and officials who worked so hard, as well as my coaches John Battleday and Jodi Fisher for the ongoing support.

 

I’m super exited for this weekend to compete at the JB Pro-Am at my home lake with all my friends and be able to watch all the best skiers in the world compete too!

The First Comp of the Year!

Last weekend I was up in Lincoln of the first competition of the year at PWTC. It was a great comp and I got some good scores, but I’m hoping to improve them at the next competitions. The first round of tricks was okay, I got a perfect hand run scoring everything but did all the wrong tricks for my toe run so did not score highly in that, in the other two trick rounds my hand run was not as good but my toe run scored higher. I was hoping to score more but I stood up all my runs which was what I mainly wanted to do at this competition.

The next day we slalomed and I was very pleased with my first round score of 5@14m 55kph, although a bit annoyed! The next round didn’t go so well as I realised that I had left my impact vest down at the main dock just before I went out. Thanks to Myles who lent me his impact vest so I could ski! In the last round I got into 14m again getting 2 buoys. It wasn’t quite what I as hoping for but I was still happy with my performance.

After slalom had finished we all went on the new aqua park opening in May. Thank you to Lincoln Aqua Park for letting us all go on for free, it was the perfect end to a great weekend!

Well done to everyone else who made the squad, especially Dani Halford, Lilli Deste and Stella Gamski for making the squad for the first time.

Seaton Classic Competition

This is a bit late, but I really enjoyed the last comp of the season at my home club, JB Ski! I had a great time with all my friends and the weather was good , at least on the second day! It was supposed to be a three event competition but jump was cancelled due to cameras and equipment not working. I was disappointed by this but it wasn’t the end of the world!

The first day was trick in the morning and some slalom in the afternoon. Trick didn’t go great but it was poring with rain and was extremely windy so I wasn’t expecting my best but was still disappointed. In the afternoon I had one round of slalomĀ  in the heavy rain but the wind had dropped. I scored 5.5 @ 14 which I was happy with considering the conditions but hoped to to much better on the Sunday.

On Sunday it was just slalom as the jump was cancelled and the first round went well but I wanted to do better. I was determined to run 13 and only had one round of the year left! In the final round the conditions were perfect for me. It was sunny but the sun glare wasn’t bad and the was a gentle head-tail wind. Before I went out I was focused and determined and ran 13 for the first time in competition and then got 2 @ 12. I was so pleased and had a great time.

Thank you to all the judges and drivers for making the competition possible and to Richard Matos for organising the comp, as well ans John Battleday and Jodi Fisher for all the training and support.
