When and where did you start snowboarding?

I started skiing when I was three years old and then snowboarding at nine.  I first strapped on a board at Perisher Blue in the Australian Snowy Mountains. I live in Newcastle, on the east coast, which is an 8 hour drive so I did a lot a travelling to get into riding, every weekend for 4 years. I now have moved there to do my seasons.

Could you give me a brief explanation about your first contest and how you got into competing on the World Snowboard Tour?

My very first comp that I went in was the Australian Junior Series in Perisher, just set up by some parents and the head coach Peter Baff. There was a very small Slope Style course and Half Pipe. I don’t really remember it but I’m pretty sure I was only getting half way up the walls in the pipe and came 3rd with a roast beef, and on the jumps i think i was throwing down some sweet indie grabs. At that point I never thought I would be travelling around Europe doing all the big comps and doing well in them. Over the next year or two it turned into a 1 star TTR event and that’s how I found out about TTR and started doing other TTR competitions. The Australian Junior series is now called the Ocean and Earth Teenage Rampage and is a 2 star event and is a great comp to get the young Aussie riders involved in the TTR circuit.

Australia is most famous for Torah Bright. Which riders inspire you? Who did you look up to as a kid coming up?

As a kid I definitely looked up to my brother, Patrick a lot.   He’s a really good rider and has such a smooth style and is always pushing me to do better. He’s also a rider who inspires me.   There are heaps of other sick riders out there but no one in particular who inspires me.

What are your goals as a snowboarder?

I would love to be in a snowboard movie some day but other than that i just want to ride and see how everything turns out.

I know you have a brother who is also competing in snowboarding.  Apart from him who else do you ride with.  Who pushes your riding?

I used to do Fastride which is a training program in perisher. I met a great bunch of people from that who are sick riders that I still ride with. Alicia Barker who I also met from Fastride, I mostly ride with her. We both push each other’s riding a lot. She comes overseas with me a lot for all the comps. We were just in Laax together for the European Open. I also ride with all my coaches, especially Paul McMahon who unfortunately blew out his knee in Laax and had to go home, but is still giving me tips over Skype.

You are a new rider coming up on the scene.  How has the World Snowboard Tour helped you progress your riding?

It has let me see what other riders around the world are doing, especially at the World Rookie Fest in Livigno. That was my first comp in Europe last year.  I saw what the other girls were doing and then went home, worked on my riding and some new tricks and went there again this year and won. I even went to a 2 star event in Chiesa Valmalenco in Italy this year. I had never heard of this place or would never have gone there if there wasn’t a World Snowboard Tour comp on, but it turns out it’s a cool little resort to ride at.

It has given me some great experiences and opened up my eyes to lots of opportunities.
