Down Under

After two awesome weeks snowboarding on the swiss glacier above Saas Fee we traveled all the way to New Zealand by plane. To the other side of the world, down under.

We couldn’t have been more lucky with the weather. I took part at the slopestyle worldcup in Cardrona. I qualified 3rd and was 4th in the finals. It was a fun first competition!

Straight after the finals in Cardrona I had to catch the plane to Australia. There we went to take part at an other competition. The Mile High in Perisher. The first training day was epic. Unfortunately the weather changed and it started to rain for the next days.

I’m happy that the competition still took place and that I could claim the 2nd place!

Due to the bad forecast in the mountains we decided to do a little trip through Australia and to visit Sydney. We had some rally fun days there surfing and skateboarding.
