Southern Freestyle Jam

So far this year we’ve had fleeting heat waves and what seems like constant torrential rain. The only thing the south of England has been missing recently is some snow. Fortunately you don’t need it to showcase your skills at the John Nike Ski Centre in Bracknell which is where the Southern Freestyle Club held its annual competition on Saturday 9th June.

The Southern Freestyle Club and their yearly Jam have gone from strength to strength over the past 5 years and Surfdome, along with our friends at Butta Wax and Animal Clothing, couldn’t help but get involved this time round and helped sponsor the event.

The Jam saw nationwide skiers and snowboarders take to the jumps and rails to bag some loot from the sponsors and enhance their reputations on the freestyle circuit. They did not disappoint, check out the results below:
