Finally back on my skis after 6 months of ACL Rehab and i must say my knee is feeling stronger by the day. I am squating 111KG in the gym now and ever since skiing my muscle has been getting bigger which is good. I have not been doing much when it comes to skiing though, few rails here and there. I would kill to hit the jumps but its just not a good idea at the moment. Hopefully in June i can go to Camp Of Champions and Windells and find my feet again on the jumps!
Here are some photos off my Iphone over the last few weeks.
I went to the Oakley Office in Parnell Auckland on my way to San Fran! Thanks Rich!
My brother and I went for a cruise before my flight! I nearly got hit by a car.

Here is Ep2 from filming with jake Munro and Matt Soundy Early Season before blowing my ACL.
So I guess i better fill you all in, I took bit of a bail and ended up smashing my knee the other day, not my knee i had already hurt in the passed years…. but my so called ‘Good one’. So after a week of stressing and booking a MRI in Auckland after finding out homie Byron Wells might of hurt his badly too. we both needed to go to Auckland and get it checked out…. So thats what we have been up to.
So we went and got a MRI and then saw the Surgeon last night……..😦
So it turns out that Both Byron and I have both Done our ACL’s and also got some bone bruising.😦 We were so gutted we didn’t talk to each other that much after that…. haha.
After the crap news we went out for dinner with my clothing sponsor Sly Guild. They managed to get our minds off everything and get a few laughs… and even got a box of the new top secret summer Line that they are working on…… They will be stocking in “The Supply Room” in Queenstown so make sure to check it out and snap some up! FRESH.
On way home got to snack out at the Gold card lounge
So yeah, If you talk to me in the next oh i dont know…… Year…. and im not happy. its probably cause this is annoying me to next levels.
But with 2014 there now i am aiming for that and i am even more determined to get at it all again. things happen and i can’t change it anymore so just got to tackle the task ahead of me and try my hardest to make sure it wont happen again… Might get a Road bike and get out biking a lot- Heard they help with knees? ha.
