So going into the event i was pretty nervous. Wanted to do well at my home spot.
My first heat was against Toby Raw and Tom Court. I was pretty powered on my 8m RPM. It all started off pretty badly. I had a few big crashes and wasnt too good. I then had to compose myself and layed down a few nice moves, railey blind, s bend blind with a pop out, s bend pass, blind judge, backmobe, NIS and a shifty to wrapped.
I was stoked as it put me through to the next round.
Next round was against James Boulding and Luke Whiteside. I knew i had to put a good heat together to beat these too guys. Ended up having the best heat of my year so far.
Started off with a big railey to blind, sbend to blind, shifty 3, sbend pass, blind judge, switch blind judge, back mobe, kiteloop pass, slim and a blind 313.
After a long wait, i went through to the final with a win.
In the final i was joined by Sam Light, and James Boulding. Just before the final the wind picked up quite a lot. I was totally overpowered on my 8, while Sam and James put some awesom passes down on there 6 and 7m.
I took some massive crashes in the final, as i couldnt deal with the power. In the end i did a few crowd pleasing tricks including a big board off and a megaloop kankan.
The final result was Sam Light in 1st. James Boulding in 2nd and me in 3rd.
It was great event and organised really well by the BKSA considereing there were 71 competitors.
