The Byron Bay High School Snowboard team (yes there is such a thing) have made it to Nationals!
Twins Jarra and Kai Millis are having a cracking season at Perisher – the pair competed at the Interschools on a regional level in the Boardercross and giant slalom, both qualifying for the state comps in boardercross and taking the team Gold.
Last week the boys had challenging races in icy conditions at Thredbo for the State Interschools, but they raced well and as a team qualified for Nationals with Jarra placing 11th as an individual.
They went on to compete at state level in slopestyle (jumps/rails) taking out the team Bronze and Kai placing ninth. Kai then had a nervous few days waiting to see if his score was high enough to qualify for nationals and he has – so he’s stoked.
Next week the boys compete in the Australian Junior Championships in Border Cross, Slopestyle and Half Pipe followed by Interschool Nationals the week after.
The boys are incredibly grateful to Bun Coffee for supporting their competition endeavours and Brookfarm for helping feed them.
