Mayerhofen full report.Posted: February 23, 2013
I went to Mayerhofen for 25 days from late January till mid Feb.
During the trip the weather mostly cloudy . we were able to hit rails in the cloudy weather, but it was unsafe to hit the big kickers, here is a rail edit me and grant put together (from the first two weeks).
Here are a few pictures:

During the 5 or 6 sunny park days we got, we road the pro line. We didn’t do any filming as time was limited. At first I got used to spinning back side and worked on my take off. At the start I was pre spinning and traveling to much. After 2 days I became very comfortable and started doing back side 9′s. I got them on lock and put 5 or so down in a row! Then I had 2 shot’s at a back 10, landing the second attempt pretty clean with a little hand check. I also did front side 5′s, cab 5′s and switch back 5′s in the smaller lines.
Here are some picture’s of my back 9 in the pro line:
On the kicker days I used my new snowboard which is the 2014 ride machete. It is by far the best board I have ever had!
Check out the board on this youtube video if your interested..
Also I was lucky enough to get lots of power days, here are a few clips:
On one of our down days we went out in search of an urban feature to ride. We set up a mettle barrier to roof drop.
Check out the pictures:
All in all this was the best trip I have been on; probably dew to it being the longest. Unfortunately I wont make it back to Mayerhofen this season dew to school. Altho a summer trip is in the pipe line! The amount money I can earn or raise will depict the length of training time I get.
THANKS FOR HAVING A LOOK!!
