JTT Blog May/June 2022

May for me was pretty chill if I’m honest, but the start of the month was pretty epic!

On the 1st May, myself and my family went down to Warmwell for the Jibworx Event. It was a great fun! I skied around, and had a bit of a jam!

I had no idea who would be there, but I bumped into Tyler Harding! We skied together and supported one another to push further in our abilities. We both did misty flips off a tube that was propped up. I did my first backside 810 off a rail and even had a go on some snow blades. It was super fun even if the weather was a bit of a write off!

We stayed over in Bournemouth after the event for the night at our lovely friends Jeff and Rosi’s house. We had a great time. The day after we went to the sea for a couple hours before the long journey back home.

After thIS, my main goal was to get back in the gym and to keep fit. So that's exactly what I’ve been doing. I recently purchased a gym membership at Puregym, and my S&C coach has written me a programme that I've been following. I’ve been hitting the gym at least twice a week.

As well as the gym I’ve been keeping up on the basketball grind when the weather permits because my local basketball court is outdoors. I've been playing solo, or with one of my homies.

Around the end of May/beginning of June I went to Tamworth to ski and it was a sick session. I met up with 2 of the boys, Tyler and Dan. It was Epic. We got a mad game of S.K.A.T.E going where we got creative, then had a little quarter pipe session at the end. It was hella nice to see the boys and shred with them.

The following two weeks I spent time with my family, and hit the gym hard! We had a big family BBQ for the Queens Jubilee, and my girlfriend had a singing gig which the whole of my family went to support her in. She smashed it. I was very proud.

On 15th June I travelled up to Manchester for some fitness testing with GB Snowsport. It was surprisingly not horrible! The day is tiring, but the company is always good fun. 

The day after this we went down to Graystone. I love this place. If you ever spot me here, I'll be doing as many tricks as possible as well as trying out new stuff! Im literally like a kid in a candy store. I managed to learn a new trick while I was there. The trick starts as a wall run, and turns into a sort of front flip/ misty flip off.

 

On 25th June, my brother decided that a big group of us would go for a walk in the Peak District. We circulated a 6 mile walk which was pretty fun! The views were awesome. it took us around 2.5 hours to complete, and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys breathtaking views and a bit of adventure.

On the last Tuesday of the month I went to Tamworth again to get some more skiing in. I experimented here with switch on front 360 swap to switch, back 360 swap back 450 off, back 360 swap pretzel 450 off and I even managed to get a back 360 swap pretzel switch up back 270 off so over all this was an ill session!
