There's never a better way to spend Valentine's Day - a perfect park, sunny day, great conditions and a park full of 17 RAD riders pushing their limits. Park Days @ Martock started with the group spreading out and working on improving their park skills with the help of 6 female snowboard & ski coaches. The level of riding this year was the highest we've ever seen!!! There was a 45 year age difference between our youngest and oldest riders and smiles on everyone's face. We were excited to see a large group of new riders coming out, all ages 9-11, demonstrating that the future of female freestyle riding in Nova Scotia is strong and growing.
The afternoon contest was high energy and included lots of great dancing. Thanks to coaches Christina Retson & Livy Fraser for putting together a fantastic playlist. Competitors started dropping into the competition course slowly but as soon as the 25 minute remaining announcement was made, the real show started! The judges couldn't believe the progression during the contest including Cameron who went home with the Best Trick of the day for a 50-50 front 360 off the culvert!
