Last week the Rip Curl Freeride Pro was held on the Bluff up at Thredbo. It is one of the funnest comps on in Australia and Nate and Jarryd were both there representing Comrades!!!
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.
