Westbeach @ Aberdeen!!

20 Sep

Aberdeen Snowsports Centre showed Westbeach and all the competitors a good time on Saturday. The Scottish leg of the Westbeach Snowflex Series was held up here for the first time this year and I think it’s fair to say an epic day had by all with some fine burgers, banging tunes and some great tricks on show there was something for everyone.

The Aberdeen Crew were comfortable on their home turf and visitors from elsewhere in Scotland and England were stepping up their game and pushing our guys to stomp some new tricks.  Considering the level of skiing and riding and new tricks being thrown down, it’s amazing there weren’t more bails, Westbeach couldn’t even fill their two best bail prize slots with just one Bern helmet being given away to Rowan Cheshire for a backflip double eject. There were 5’s and 7’s, rodeos and todeos, not to mention Kris Bell stunning the crowd with a back 10 winning him the best trick title – sick Kris.  The skills of Grant Donald and Andy Gibson didn’t go unnoticed winning the title of best unsponsored skier and snowboarder respectively – look out for a dedicated column in Whitelines soon.  Sophie Addison won 1st place for the 2nd time in the series having won the Halifax leg – a trip to France in order Sophie?  Big ups to Fin Bremner too, he must have been stoked to get 2nd place in the under 16’s snowboarding not letting a recovering broken wrist get in the way, to come straight back after injury shows some talent.   Full results are shown below, there are a fair amount of Aberdeen names in there which is great stuff.

There should be some photos and video edits up on the website soon but till then you can check out the Westbeach blog here.

Big thanks to Westbeach for a great day and see you again next year.  Next comp on the calender is our very own- Own It comp which also promises to be good times, see you there, keep stepping up that game.

There are photos flying about on Facebook and Barry P has some mini edits on their too so check them out.  If anyone has any edits or photos to Goatpost then send them over to thegoatpost@gmail.com
