NZ Freestyle Champs- FJ!
Last weekend we had the New Zealand Freestyle Nationals on the Full James Rapid just out of Taupo. This is one of the funnest and most accessible waves on offer in the region and provides a lot of fun. The men's competition was taken out this year by the one and only Josh Neilson! Followed closely by Andy O and the legend Bernd Sommers!
In the Womens Polly Green took the honours with Junior World silver medalist Courtney Kieran in 2nd and myself in 3rd.
A super fun weekend and Jamie and I even got to try out the SUP's on the wave!:)
Big thanks to all the sponsors of the event. There was some super sweet prizes, I was especially stoked with my Tie Downs from CanoeandKayak Taupo as now I can stop using everyone elses!
Also big thanks to the organisers!!! Soph, B, Lu Urwin, Tyler and CanoeandKayak Taupo...without these guys the event would never happen and we would miss out on sick times!
