The stair set that the comps have been held on is pretty gnarly and has claimed its fair share of riders and the final was no different…check out the MDTV episode that is on www.nzsnowboard.com.

With about 7 guys and 7 chicks game to huck their meat the level of riding was epic! There were all sorts of 270s onto the rail and ledges, combos and change ups on the rail and spins out. Even the chicks were chargin hard! Callie hitting the rail switch and Christy 180 in and out on the ledge!!

Mad Props to everyone in the comp but especially to Pooch for taking the $6000 and Christy for claiming the $3000 for the chicks. Runners up in the guys were Nick Hyne, Wes and Dillon. The girls runner ups were Callie Conaghan, Maia and Shelly.
