Ride in Tahoe! Part 2

Posted on Friday 18th February, 2011 Times Viewed: 3982
So we are on to the second part of the Ride in Tahoe feature so lets see what Katie, Lynsey and Rowan have been up to!
It has been beautiful weather in Lake Tahoe for the last couple of weeks so we have been hitting up sunny Northstar, a few night shreds at Boreal and also doing some street spots. Its honestly felt like summer over here, riding in t-shirts, sunbathing by the lake and eating ice cream!!! So we have go into the laid back vibe and done some pretty low key, fun shred type stuff and had a pretty chilled out couple of weeks!

We all went down to Donner Lake had a mellow session on some pinic benches. It was so beautiful with the lake in the background we thought it would just make a really nice shot. Also was good practice for the bungee! Had a pretty nasty bail that i'm sure will make it into the next street edit so look out for it!

We also had another sunny session in the skate park. Lynsey ashdown, fresh of the flight, joined us too! Would def like to head there again at some point this season and try and get more creative with the skate park……

Then we had a spontaneous moment and bought our selves a 20 ft gaspipe for the garden. Its really fun and really nice to be able to try new stuff without people watching!!!

We decided to hit up the Boxes For Days comp at Boreal….which is basically 240ft of boxes put together and you have to try and get to the end of it. this was soooooo hard. it was an up down to up flat down to flat down to…….etc (including 2 c boxes!!!). You literally had to cling on to the sides of the boxes whilst sliding to have a chance of making it to the end. some people even did it partly sliding on their bums to make it to the end (but think that was cheating) I think i made it about half way but Billy Morgan bought the gold home for the Brits with his gallant effort and exceptional technique!!

Ride Snowboards really wanted the team to get some pics down for a team poster so we have been busy doing that with the help of a photographer Bruce learman. Rowan Biddisome got an awesome one in the skate park and Lynsey Ashdown and I got some really cool ones in the Stash. So keep your eyes pealed for them!

But now unfortunately we have had a run of really bad luck. Ed Stockwell broke his collar bone, Rich Jonas bruised his heel and bit his tounge and had to have 11 stitches to re-attach it (it was minging), Simon Belson twisted his spine and Will Radula-Scott broke his pelvis. So this really sucks!

But excellent news……the girls house has now arrived in town!!!! 6 girls and 1 boy living 900 meters away from our house. So now there is a proper girly shred crew……..known as Heel Edge Projects. Watch out for blogs and edits throughout the season from our crew!

We took a girly trip down to southlake for a rail jam in a car park. It wasn't the best set up with everyone, even the boys, struggling for speed. We had to have 2 guys at the to swinging each competitor in. I took a few nasty bails and didn't do very well : ( But……Lynsey Ashdown came 3rd and Kirsty Smith came 4th so that was a really good result for the girls. Watch out for the edit coming soon! We met a crew of guys from Colorado at the rail jam who are now staying in a caravan in the girls driveway!!

So only 5 weeks left now, want to get lots of riding in and sunny park laps and hopefully some more street stuff if we get some snow
