BUDS

I spent last weekend at Hillend in Edinburgh at BUDS. It is the British University DrySlope championships. I am not a student but two of my sponsors were sponsoring the event. http://www.syndicateclothing.co.uk/ and http://www.freezeproshop.com/. They put on a Pro Am event for the students and sponsored athletes so I managed to ride in that on the Saturday evening.

Since so many skiers and snowboarders were trying to hit the jump the queue was HUGE so to save time we would drop one after the other. The only photo I managed to get of this was of me and Cameron Nicol. We both ride for Freeze Pro Shop and are both from Edinburgh. We ride a lot together so we trust each other to land and make sure that you don't land on the person in front.

At the end of every BUDS all the riders tend to do a massive train. So much similar to what Cammie and I are doing there would be a lot more people involved. This is always organised by the famous man Sketch. 
I have managed to attached a little video of this train. It was the biggest one that we have ever done at Hillend so it was pretty pleasing to be in it. Watch out for me. I am the one doing the switch backflip. I am the second skier in!



Luckily I managed to win the Pro Am event. Overall it was a great weekend and I had a lot of fun. It was good to see everyone up at Hillend again and hopefully it's the same again next year!
