When I arrived at the jam, people were already well on their way and working their way down the steep and sketchy hill. Everyone was working out where to slide and trying to hang on to their boards!

Next up was the biggest standy competition. This was dominated by Bodhi keen and George Howes. Bodhi came out on top, hitting the 80ft mark and George coming in close with 70ft.

After the sliding, there were a few more prizes to give out, the one leg tuck contest was up first. People dropped out quickly as there legs started to give in and slowly the numbers dropped. There were then two and after some time it came down to Aron Hailey winning!

Cameron Palmer came out on top for the "big air", hitting a clean 180 off the ramp.

The turnout was sick and everyone shredded hard! Thanks James Woodford for organising and thanks for the all the sponsors for making it possible!

See you next time!
