Burton Blog update – Jye Kearney qualifies for NZ Open Slopestyle

August 13th, 2009

Limited visibility and snow didn’t stop Jye Kearney from qualifying for the NZ Open slopestyle semi finals which takes place on Friday.In the photo above of Jye spinning to win please notice team manager Chris Boadle getting snappy with his camera. Did you get the shot Boadle?


Chris Decampo unfortunately fell on both his runs but who cares when you can throw a tweaked out back 7 japan like this.


Jye’s qualifying run was a cab 270 on the flat down, 50 50 front one on the up bar, cab five, back 7, front 7.


Mitch Allan just missed out on qualifying however if they open up a couple more spots in the semi finals he is in so fingers crossed.
