I am just on my way from home from an amazing trip down to New Zealand. Definitely one of the funnest ski trips I have ever been on and it was also special being the first big trip back after properly recovering from knee surgery last year. I was there for five weeks; we had a British Team camp through September and im mega stoked about how well everything went getting back in the halfpipe. In some areas im feeling better than I ever done on my skis! The crew in our house was on point, As well as lots of other local homies or friends living there for the season making it a super fun trip. Here's some pics.

Strength and Conditioning plays a big part in our sport as it puts so much strain through the body. This is doubly true when returning from injury. I had some major complications with my recovery after surgery on my knee last year. Missing most of the winter again, I have been taking the time and opportunity to increase my overall strength and fitness, as well as giving my knee a lot more time. Here is a video, some pics and more info on some of the things involved...
Here are also some pics of my first trip back to the park, in Saas Fee last week!
Next up I am heading down to New Zealand for the rest of their season which I am so excited about!

Recently a new UK based ski clothing company asked me to review their new jacket. Overall I was pretty impressed and liked the jacket! Check out the review I did and link to their website bellow...

The last couple of weeks in Breckenridge have been really sick! On Christmas day I took my first run back in the pipe and since then have been able to step things up slowly and surely. The last couple of days doing tricks have felt amazing and everything is almost back to normal with the knee. Here's some pics and vids from the last week!

I have had an amazing first week out here in Colorado, after lots of hard work over the last few months, being back on skis, catching up with loads of friends I haven't seen in ages and with a busy season planned I couldn't be happier right now. I have had to be really disciplined and resist hitting the park with the crew as it is important to take things slowly and ease the knee in gradually. However, it has felt really strong and everything is well on track. Tearing down the pistes and exploring the mountain has been a lot of fun as the tiniest progressions feel amazing! I have spent the first week staying with the British Team set up in Frisco which has been cool and now have my family coming out to Breckenridge over Christmas. Here's some snaps from the first few days...

I am just coming to the end of a long summer of rehab and more gym work than I have ever done before. At the end of last season I capped off a tough year by joining the ever growing list of people who have snapped their ACL and underwent major surgery in May to reconstruct it. This injury can be frustrating but I knew what to expect and luckily everything has gone really smoothly so far. I am very lucky to have had the support I have had and need to thank everyone who has helped me. Particularly my family, friends, British Ski and Snowboard, Function Jigsaw and TASS. I am now at the 4 month mark, have just had a follow up with the surgeon and been told I am well on track to be skiing around November time which is a really quick recovery and means I should be able to have a really good season! Still lots of work to do though but here's what I have been doing all summer...

After my injury in December I decided to spend the rest of my season in Colorado for some spring skiing rather than head to Europe for comps. The first week was bluebird everyday and the parks were pretty much empty! I was getting my tricks back and skiing really well and myself, Anna and Woodsy managed to get a lot of filming done over the week. Check out this teaser for an edit im going to bring out in the next couple of weeks...

I have been back skiing in the UK a lot recently which has been really fun. On Wednesday I competed in the British University Skopestyle Champs at Castleford Snozone. Loads of my mates were skiing so it was a good laugh. I ended up winning with my two friends Rob Machon and Byron Haywood coming 2nd and 3rd! When I got to the podium I got handed a cheque with £450 written on it which I wasnt expecting! Happy days!
