Chilling in Courchevel
Stayed at home mostly this summer. Dismantling & Building our new chalet. Helping out at Pleisure Holidays. Unfortunately didn't get as much Volleyball this year though as has been one of the worst summers for rain in Courch only had 5 dry days in July! but all good.

1st Summer trip to Scotland
Headed to Scotland for a private session in Breahead with Team GB on an airbag was fun to ride in a dome! here is a link to the team edit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF4GPIyUjZ8
Did the Frappadingue (french version of Tough Mudder) again this year, had a couple of other mates doing it with me was a fun day kept to the routine of having a Jager Bomb first thing to get us pumped to do the 12.5km run with an obstacle every 300m, was quite tired when we finished! haha. Come and join me in Courch next year to do this again http://www.frappadingue.net/les-courses/frappadinguealp-xtrem/
The Start of the Frappadingue
Summer Glaciers, Les 2 Alpes, Saas Fee, Tignes, Zermatt
Did a few day trips to the summer Glaciers, picked my days depending on weather, all had pretty good setups. Had fun at all.. Tignes had a new park for this year, hopefully will continue and improve for next, especially the lift! Saas Fee had fun riding the pipe. Zermatt no pipe :( found some natural stuff to session. Les 2 Alpes best of the lot this summer, awesome pipe, big park setup.

Holiday in Camper Van
Went travelling again in Forrest our vw camper. Started by going across to Carcans on west coast of France, met up with Alice and Adam, ex Pleisure staff.
Then headed down to Capbreton to see Jim, Annie and Thatch for our annual catch up with mates, surf, skate, swimming, bridge jumping, good food and wine! (H2O Surf Holidays http://www.h2oholidays.com/), surf was awesome the waves were tiny!! also went to Le Deck for lunch owned by people from La Tania, check it out on Gordon Ramseys Costa del Kitchen Nightmares! haha. Then we headed on a wine tasting tour of Rioja in Spain, Corbieres, St Emillion and Cote du Rhone / Chateauneuf-du-Pape in France. With some bull running in Nimes, swimming and yoga everyday, and some cool skate parks. Another awesome trip.
