CHRISTY PRIOR BRAKES HERSELF OFF!!…. March 8, 2010 by Christy Prior (Snowboarder)

Let me rephrase that….. EXPLODED COLLAR BONE!! oh, o…. check these out!!


This is what eventuates when you don’t make the right call dropping into a jump…  after getting put off by a skier coming across my side of the drop in causing me to swerve and take a different line then I’m used too off the take off I decided to continue and hit it anyway…. bad move… heels slip out in front of me and after not being able to bring my super corked maneuver back to my feet, instead I land on my neck/shoulders on the knuckle…. not fun… Check out the rest of the pics below…

Bye Bye Olympics March 3, 2010 by Robett Hollis (Snowboarder)

Wow. what a huge few weeks!

I’m now all finished up with my contract on the Winter Olympics and I am shattered! I left Auckland yesterday and drove north to Dargaville to see the whanau for a few days before I fly out this Friday back to the states.

The past 19 days just blurred into 1 big chaotic stream of action and winter. It was a great and amazing opportunity and hopefully it will open some doors in the near future. They were super stoked on my work so that was real good.

Bring on the states!!!!!

Surived the first week as camp mum…just!!!! December 19, 2009 by Christy Prior (Snowboarder)

christy-prior-profile-clear-70-newOne of my jobs at the moment that is slowly but surely contributing to my Canada fund is working at a horse riding venue located out in Parakai, NZ – Tasman Rides.

Here I am a trekking guide and also an instructor. Over the school holidays they hold between 1-4day camps for the kids too which Ive taken on the role as “camp mother” along with other guides we teach kids up up to 17years old how to gear up, ride and look after a horse then once the day is over I make the transformation from coach to mother-feeding and entertaining the young’ns, staying on site with them then back up at 7am nipping at there heels until there fed, showered and ready to do it all again by 9am! -I run a tight shift! hahah.

Retrieving the horses into the day stables were they will be used for school holiday camps or going out in the area,over the  farm or to the beach on separate rides throughout the day.
