BILLABONG FLAUNT IT MOUNT SEYMOUR
March 7, 2011
Billabong's Flaunt It tour passed its halfway mark this past weekend, finishing its 4th of 7 stops at Mount Seymour, BC. With morning fog the outlook wasn't promising as as the ladies had no visibility, so the day and started off with the rail jam. The slopestyle was held in the afternoon as the skies cleared up and the girls were able to stomp their tricks on the perfect set up in the Northlands Park.
The quality of riding Saturday was impressive with ladies throwing down a variety of tricks that included backside and switch backside 7's. Natsuki Sato from Japan was the talk of the day with everyone eager to see her switch backside 7. She took home 1st place in the slopestyle stomping her frontside 5 to switch backside 5 winning $700 and a trip to the finals in Tahoe. Sato's switch backside 5 landed her the Dakine Best Trick and her talent on the rails locked her 3rd place in the rail jam. The talented and two time defending Seymour Flaunt It champion Molly Milligan took home second place in both the slopestyle and the rail jam with her consistent runs. Breanna Strangeland also saw the podium twice at Mount Seymour, coming back to Flaunt It strong after her win at Sunshine, AB. With a secured trip to Tahoe, Strangeland placed 3rd in the slopestyle and killed it in the rail jam with a 1st place trick; back lip pretzel out. Nicole McNulty drove in from Oregon finishing 4th in the slopestyle and claiming the Sony Style Award with her backside 3 Japan and stylish methods.
