...it sure is pretty sweet being on Team Surfanic.
Our Junior and Youth Team riders have proved this month that hard work pays off and brought home some great results from huge UK comps over the last few weeks.
On August 30th, Snow Factor Braehead played host to the Scottish Indoor Slopestyle Championships with our team out in full force to snatch up some places on those podiums.
As expected these guys did not disappoint, with Sam (who you may have seen on his web series, Check The Checklist) taking Silver in Snowboard Slopestyle with JJ close behind in fourth. Thea is our little firecracker and has the drive and determination of a pro. With this much focus she pulled out another podium place taking Silver in the U16's ski category. Nicole is our laid back slicker than your average youngster and adds some serious style to the team. She also brought home a Silver, this time in U12's Snowboarding division.
Obviously I had to sneak in to the shot to get my minute of fame, come on, no one ever takes pics of me!
Another great happening was last weeks Farmers Jam.
Taking place at Norfolk Snowsports Club, this comp was attended by some of our team who couldn't make the trek to Scotland the previous weeks. With the likes of Jamie Nicholls there, the pressure was on to impress and we didn't disappoint.
A great welcome to Justin Taylor-Tipton, but you can call him JTT making a huge impact on the day with 2 Silvers for his age cat in Slopestyle & Big Air. So rad! And other newbie Callum Welch hot on his heels with a Bronze in Slopestyle. Great results guys, we look forward to seeing whats in store for the coming season!
And finally a little on our favourite duo, the Annis brothers. Farmers Jam seen Sam take a Bronze for his age division in the ski slopestyle, beating off some stiff competition and making it his second medal in 2 comps.
The previous week the brothers had hit up Splashfest at Bracknell Ski & Snowsports Centre with JTT and stole the show with Sam taking the Silver & Top close behind with the Bronze... not bad for a 10 and an 8 year old!
JTT kept his medal count up with a Silver in overall male ski and a Silver for Best Trick.
