So last year started out great with the Junior Burton European Open, coming 2nd in the slopestyle event - Super Stoked....come home to England, broke my shoulder on a rail at Castleford - Not so Stoked!!!!! Months out of action!!!
March-Had a trip to Laax to WATCH the Brits as I couldn't compete!!!! Still had fun though.
1st comp since my injury- Won Oakley Grom Games in Manchester..Yey :)
May - went to Kaurnatel for the Board Test, still recovering so was getting back into riding jumps, took it steady.
June - DC Jet Set at Castleford - won Overall Women, £500 money in the bank.

Also in July I went to Les Deux Alpes with One Snowboarding to train with the GB Junior Team, then travelled with Aimee Fuller to Biarritz for the Roxy Surf Pro 2011, met up with all the Roxy UK Surf team and Lois Pendlebury who's the Roxy Pro Skateboarder.
Got sponsorship from Bliss by Level Gloves - Awesome.
September - Won Westbeach snowflex comp at Halifax - under 16's, first time I'd landed my 7 in a comp.
Also in September Won Overall Women at the British Indoor Snowtour rail Jam.
The day after the Snowtour event I competed for the first time after my injury in the Yorkshire Gymnastics Open - came 3rd on Beam and 4th Overall -super stoked as my shoulder has not got full mobility back which caused a slight problem in getting my gym fitness back.
October half-term went out to Hintertux to shred with my friend Rowan Coultas. Also in October travelled with the Roxy Future Team to Saas Fee - kicker and halfpipe training.
November & December - COLORADO..... had such a fun time there, went out with Roxy and met up with the GB Team. Really progressed my kicker riding. Breckenridge and Keystone kickers are super cool. Have loads of new tricks in the bag!
January 2012- Went on an epic trip to ride with my friend Rowan Coultas in Mayrhofen, so much powder it was unreal!!! Entered a Hotzone Rail Jam and won the womens.
Fun Times, Stay Safe, Katie O..xx
