Im home

The last few days were kind of hectic. After our last day in Byron we drove 10 hours back to Sydney for my mate, Luke Kneller’s, 21st birthday. It was a super fun night and it was really good to catch up with everyone.

Then I had a chill day in Sydney which I spent checking out various shops. City’s are bad for me, I end up finding way to much cool stuff and spending way to much money.

On our last day in Sydney I had to head over to the Redbull HQ for a team media training day. We learnt some really interesting things and also some tactics for interviews. Then,3 due to the fact we sat inside majority of the day, Redbull took us on a group activity, paint balling.

I love paint balling, even though I am covered in welts now, I still have so much fun while I am playing. Probably one of the most fun things you can do, and if you haven’t done it yet, give it a go.

Now that I am home, I am trying to start to organize my trip’s. Its creeping up on me faster and faster and before I know it I’ll be back on snow skiing again!

In other news, ESPN has released the first wave of athletes for the winter X games. I am super stoked as I made it into slope and big air. Last year I was put on the alternate list for big air, which I can understand as I was coming off an injury and I couldn’t do any city big airs. So to have made it into big air this year is epic!
