^^^ A Run At Sochi ^^^

How do I sum up my sport in one moment..

Over the last few months I have been busy working on a project with Samsung which I am now very excited to share with you. They asked me how I would express that one moment in the sport I am most passionate about. It wasn't easy but they also gave me the opportunity to work with Sampology an awesome music producer to help me on the journey. I won't give any more away, check out the story here . . .

^^^ AIS Performance of the Year ^^^

I have to say, it felt a bit strange receiving an award right before flying out of the country with new goals ahead of me. But still, it was a great night at the AIS awards and very thankful and honored to be awarded Performance of the Year. I was really happy to have my girlfriend Ellidy with me on the night, as well as catch up with everyone from the OWIA. I was presented the award by Michael Johnson, which was unreal and also got to catch up with Layne Beachley and Mark Beretta on stage. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year so much fun and successful, I hope to bring home more success in the very near future.

^^^ New Episode ^^^

The past few months have been busy. Training, media and moving into my new place. But I’ve been able to fit a couple of trips away with friends prior to the next big on snow camp in NZ. We did score some fun waves, but it was pretty rare that someone would want to film while it was pumping. Anyway, for something a bit different, here is episode 43. Thanks for watching.

^^^^^ SSA Awards ^^^^^

Last week I was down in Melbourne for a few days. We had the AOC Olympic shadow team assembly, as well as the OWIA induction. They were stacked days of getting uniforms fitted for Sochi, media and catching up with the whole team. After the Induction wrapped up on Thursday, we suited up and headed in for the Suzuki SSA Awards. It was cool to have mum and dad along for the night. With it being Australia’s most successful season at World Cup ever, there was plenty to celebrate and everyone was really happy.

I was really stoked on receiving a big cheque from XTM for podium intensives, plus winning “The Athlete of The Year” Award. It was such a good feeling to have the chance to share it all with my family, coach, team mates and a lot of people who have supported me along the way all together on the night. Coach also won “Coach of the Year” which was of course well deserved and I was stoked for him.  It was such a fun season for me and I look forward to the future with a lot of excitement. Thanks for all the support and kind messages coming in over the past few days, I really do appreciate it all.

^^^^^ I LOVE THIS ^^^^^

It’s been a massive season. With one event left on the tour, it’s in some way amazing to be at this point of the season already. In another way, every event of this season has been so huge and required every bit of energy I have had in the tank. I have locked away another Crystal Globe for the World Cup tour overall, on top of my second World Championship title earlier this season. It’s everything I could have asked for results wise from this tour, but more importantly to me my riding has been challenged and has held up in many different conditions. I really love what I do so much, I enjoy every single run I make in every course throughout the season. The racing I have experienced this season has been the best so far and each one has taught me so much. I sit here now, in Switzerland with a big smile and a lot to look forward to. I’m so excited by this sport and the level of which I have reached to allow me to enjoy it in the best possible way. I’m ever thankful to my Mum and Dad, my Coach Ben, Viktor my board tech and all my supporters. I never for one second take this opportunity I have for granted.

From here, it’s onto Spain for the last World Cup of the season. I look forward to finishing off well and then return home for a bit of a break.

Thank you for all your support!

^^^^ PK ^^^^

Back into winter after a real fun time at home over Christmas and New Years. I met up with Coach and Cam at Prince George and we headed up to Powder King for a 10 day training camp with the Canadians. Cam and I scored fun tree lines for the first 2 days, best way to get back into the swing of things. We then charged the SBX course for a solid 8 days. It was a lot of fun to race with the Canadian boys, we had so many close heats and kept the motivation up each day.

We are now on our way to the Snowboard World Champs in Quebec. I couldn’t be feeling better coming into this event. I love the course in Stoneham and as its been a bit of time since our last race, I’m well and truly ready to get back in the start gate. For now, here are a few shots from PK. Thanks to Ivan for the BX shots.
