The last weeks have been pretty busy... after the the "Haus-Masters" i have been to the Quiksilver Spring Battle and after that i have been to Kronplatz to shoot the highest jump i have ever seen!
The Spring Battle is allways super fun. The Organisation is doing a very good job, the chalets we live in are amazing and all the riders are killing it. The Weatherforecast was super bad so we decided to stop after the semi`s and the top 10 are going to the live judging on friday evening.
Its a really cool format to judge the runs live at the party. This year it was also live on the internet!! if you missed it you can watch the replay here: Replay Quiksilver Spring Battle 2012
I got 7th.
After one day break we drove to Kronplatz again to shoot a little in the perfect shaped park and then we had a sunset shoot on the highest jump ever... i was soo scared to hit it.. no snowboarder has hit it bevore so i dident know the speed. After some speed checks i hitted it and nearly overshoot the whole thing. The second jump was even worse, basti rittig was following me and we both overshoot it. After two more jumps i kind a got the speed and stomped a trick... All in all it was super scary but i got my shot, so iam happy.. my leg hurts a little but i hope its gonna be good in 1-2 days.
Here are some shots from Val Senales.
Thx Markus Rohbacher for the pics!
