The end of last season was quite busy with
Tom having to put an end to his season suddenly after rupturing his ACL on the world cup in Veysonnaz. His other knee just gave in so in April it was time to get operated of both knees. This meant he spent most of his spring in a rehabilitation center in Hauteville.
Will took a very difficult decision at the end of the season as he decided to end his career after having a difficult season but it was the right one as he wasn’t enjoying what he was doing. http://www.ffs.fr/news/snowboard/william-bankes-decide-de-mettre-un-terme-a-sa-carriere-21742
As for me, after a good end of season, it was time to go back to school to do some work as in June I had my BAC. In the spring, I also had to have an operation to try to sort out my pain in my pelvis.
After it was a question of being patient for Tom and me so that we would recover properly. So we decided to go on a boat trip down to the Canaries from Marseille via Menorca, Gibraltar, Madeira and the Salvagen islands. A great trip with some good sailing, nice places and great views.
After these 4 weeks, it was time for me to start my rehabilitation while Tom stayed down there sailing around the islands and also doing some courses so as to get his RYA skipper qualifications. He is now Captain Thomas
I spent 3 weeks in Cap Breton at the CERS in rehab. Will came to visit for a week with Zucco and a bit of surfing
After that back home for a pleasant time making the most of the Indian summer with some sailing, cycling and some physical training always with the dogs.
Now November has arrived, and with it the weather has turn, winter is coming. But it is also time for me to get back on my board for some gentle training. SO making the most of a little window of good weather, I was of to Saas Fee in Switzerland last weekend for 3 days of riding in nice fresh snow. Good to be back on the snow.
Now back home with the dogs for a week before flying off to Finland to get some proper training in before the beginning of the season in Montafon on the 6th of December.
Thanks to drake/ Northwave, Oxess and Dragon for the new kit.
Back on the road for a new season
