Niseko, Japan

December 21, 2010

Last season was a very slow start in Thredbo. The snow came late and I redislocated my shoulder in the second week of the season. It was extremely dissapointing after so much physio work. After that I purchased a brace which helped my shoulder and my confidence levels. I was soon riding again and managed to progress my riding to a level I was happy with. My best competition result was 9th in the Rip Curl Freeride Pro. I am also now riding for Flint clothing. I got some pics which will be up on edrichards.wordpress at a later date.

After a six week holiday in Mexico and Central America I am now based in Niseko, Japan for the next 4-5 months. Here is a clip of my second day of riding for the season. Enjoy


Shoulder Surgery and Surfing

May 31, 2010

I had Keyhole Shoulder Surgery on October the 6th, 2009. The Specialist advised six months no snowboarding. I had six months of physiotherapy and began surfing two months after my surgery. Over summer I surfed on the East Coast of Australia between Sydney and the Gold Coast. My favourite surf spots were Crescent Head, Lennox, Byron Bay, Greenmount/Snapper and of course some secret spots around my home town of Woolgoolga. These are a couple of photos that my girlfriend/friends snapped of me. Enjoy
