Land of the long white cloud

Last week here in NZ we had beautiful sunny skies everyday, but so far this week isn't the warm spring weather we were hoping for. Monday and Tuesday were scheduled days off as the forecast wasn't looking so flash and everyone was in need of some rest.

Today was our first day back up at Cardrona for the last week of spring camp. When I woke up it was wet, miserable and foggy and it got no better by the time I reached the mountain. Despite the conditions I ended up having a great morning riding just working on simple but important things.

Cardrona Spring Camp

I am back in New Zealand and today was our third day up at Cardrona. They have a great spring camp set up with an airbag, halfpipe and slopestyle course. Yesterday was a whiteout and we only got three runs in before they called it off at 10am but today the weather was beautiful. Hopefully it will stay that way for the rest of my time here.

NZ take two

Packing again! I'm heading back to NZ for a short spring camp. It should be a soft and fun pipe at Cardrona and it'll be great to ride and see my friends again.

Also Burton have sent me a new board to try out, The Fortress. It's a little stiffer than my Feelgood(which I love), so I'm interested to see how it goes.

Stay tuned for updates from NZ....
