Just got back from Los Barriles, Baja, Mexico and am pleased to say the trip was a huge success! I went into the event knowing that it was mainly a course racing event but thought there was a freestyle section too. When I showed up, i found out the the big air (which I thought was freestyle) was truly a big air contest. Never the less, I decided to enter that along with the downwind slalom racing… with very low hopes. I ended up blowing my expectations out of the water and won every heat all the way to the final round where I placed third! On the final day The event organizers decided to throw a prize purse towards a freestyle event. There was a one heat free for all with about 25 men and women competing at the same time. I managed to land pretty much everything I wanted and came out on top with the biggest $250 check I’ve ever seen!
