Windell’s Camp: Day 6
10 Aug, 2009
It was the last day for snowboarding at Windell’s camp but definitely the most fun and progressive day for me once we hit the slopes. A couple warm up runs from top to bottom just making turns and getting the muscles working again.
Early morning lines at Palmer
We spent the morning back on the dance box (seriously the most fun feature) to just play with tricks. I ended up working on half cab to 50/50 on the box.
But I also worked on a variety of tricks including…
Yeah the opposite of MJ, JJ?
After the dance box, I graduated onto my first ollie on box at camp. Got the nerve up to finally hit it. I have footage of it, which I’ll be adding later. I worked on just riding till the end of it, and ended up with a tail press on the box.
The photo was early but it’s my ollie onto the rail for the first time

We headed back down to the easier box rail where I worked on frontside boardslides and actually felt better about them. We didn’t get any photos or footage but it gave me hope for when I head back to Colorado of hitting more rails.

Kenny may be broken but he’s still killing it
In the afternoon we grabbed our gear and headed to the public pipe to spend the last hour hiking pipe and getting some shots. I really wanted to get some shots of me riding pipe since I do it but never get shots of it. The pipe photos are all shot by Adam Anderton my coach here at camp (making sure he gets his photo credit)

We ended the last day on snow with a trip to the Timberline Lodge Blue Ox Bar for pizzas and beer to finish out the riding.
After cleaning up and showering it was time to head to the BOB for the dis-orientation where all the campers got t-shirts and hats, plus the chance to win a ton of prizes. A couple adult campers took home some goodies including a free Stepchild Board and Grenade jacket.
While the kid camper celebrated with a Red Bull Dance party, we had our own party at the adult house for the adults and coaches at camp that wanted to join in. It was a very fun night and my first night letting loose.

MFM came out to Hood and was at our adult party last night to hang out with the adult campers. It was fun to watch him and Kenny, Kenny won his money in the end.
