August upon us - Cherry Blossoms too.

I have stolen this photo from my friend Stef's blog. The only appropriate caption here is FREEDOM.

The last few weeks have been rad! August has brought some sporadic weather to The Southern Lakes. The result has been snowy mornings and FUN afternoons! The New Zealand Open has just come to a close. I came 21st in the Slopestyle. The finals for both Slopestyle and Halfpipe saw snowboarding go to a new level. I won the Remarkables Slopestyle on Saturday. The park up there is a good time. Coronet Peak has also been good in recent weeks -see Diaries Downunder 3 below. We also went to a pilot for a new show called 'The Match'. We had fun with a taser.


Also, here are some photos that I have been meaning to put on here in the last few weeks.
The Remarkables.

Jordan smiles and poses nicely doesn't he.

The view from Cardrona after Semi Finals at the New Zealand Open.

Hiroki tumbled down the stairs at The Remarkables Slopestyle. He carried on riding, did his runs then got fixed up at the end of the day.

Skype has claimed another victim.

The audio man doing the hokey tokey as Possum goes in for a tickle.

The cameraman at 'The Match' pilot show.

Cherry blossoms in August.

Jeremy Thorns put some of his illest images onto canvas. He has some good shit!
