Here’s the official highlights video from the O’Neill Pleasure Jam, that went down last weekend on the beautifully groomed but super windy Dachstein glacier. We were well chuffed to hear that Aimee Fuller, Jamie Nicholls and Rowan Coultas were out reppin’ hard for Blighty, with Aimee taking top honours in the women’s category and Jamie taking third place and the best trick in the men’s. Aimee’s run, which starts at 4:32, consisted of her trademark cab underflip, a big backside 360, a nosepress over the rainbow rail and a backflip off the wallride feature at the end. Jamie’s 3rd place run (starting at 5:05) started off with a cab 5 followed by a bolts backside 720, a front blunt 450, and a wallride to tamedog thingy (not really sure how to describe that one!). Rowan Coultas came in at 14th, beating some accomplished slopestyle riders in the process and we’re confident his name will continue creeping up the results lists with his age.
Overall it looked like a fun contest with a course that was a little smaller this year giving the riders a little more confidence chucking their tricks but that also mixed in some extra jib features rather than just having three kickers in a row.
