The first day (wednesday) was pretty average with rain, wind a very poor visabilty, but both of the comrades qualified for finals the next day.
The weather was a fair bit better on thursday, but not perfect. Nate had 2 awesome runs, throwing down 3's off the rock drop, a switch back 5 off the hip and in his second run half cabbing an awesome rock butter down the bottom of the bluff. Jarryd kept it a bit more simple with a 3 off the hip, gapping the same rock butter Nate hit in his first run and hitting the rock butter in his second.
Nate and Jarryd's solid riding paid off with Nate taking out 1st place and Jarryd tied up for 3rd with Pete Long... Ben Mates pulled up 2nd.

The set up was crazy. starting with 2 down bars at the top, then a picnic table and a tyre bonk leading into the infamous hut.
There were a fair few options for the hut, you could gap it, gap to the downside of the roof, ride up and down the roof, hit the box-downbar, and the list goes on.
Congrats to the Quicksilver team who took out the event, and the Burton team who took out best trick.
Theres a video on the popmag website @ http://www.popmag.com.au/videos/ (you might have to scroll down a bit). We will post some pics as they come in. And wil lgive you a heads up when the event will be televised.

Friend of Comrades Kendall Brown also cracked some ribs and headed home early. Get well soon KB!
So after a few days on the hill it was time for a day off.
However rather than just chilling by the pool and taking in the sun we piled in the Red Rocket (The beautiful maroon beast pictured below), rented some mountain bikes and headed up the road to the top of Mammoth.
We did about 4 runs from top to bottom, each time trying to find new trails and pedalling up a storm to make each other eat dust... which there was lots of.
Jarryd claimed the first bail... and the second one. Going off the trail and over the handlebars. We all had a rad time bush bashing and trying not to lose it as we hit little patches of snow but after a couple of hours we were pretty beat so we packed it in and headed to Pita Pit.
Here's a little video of Nate shredding over the last week or so.

Australian Snowboarder Magazine
Nate has a full page shot (First Words Section) , a two page Rip Curl ad, and a page for the Rip Curl Freeride Pro
Jarryd got a decent shot with a rundown of his list of injuries (News - Medic Section).
Samboss got a good little shot and props taking out the Ocean and Earth Teenage Rampage Series (Comp Calender Section) .
This is a new magazine hot off the press in Australia and Comrades are well spoken for by Samboss and Jason who both have photos in the first ever issue.
We would just like to thank Ryan Willmont and Russel Holt for producing some great mags, and letting us be apart of it all.

Keep an eye out...
