Zuzy Rocka wins Kinky Rail Jam at Big White
This past Saturday January 21st held the launch of the 2012 Kinky Rail Jam clinic and contest series presented by NIKITA! Girl shredders as young as 9 years old came out to Big White Ski Resort to ride the private box and rail course. It was the best setup the TELUS park crew has created for this event to date – with a few mellow ride-on boxes, a kink box, a perfect-for-learning long rail, and a street style down bar and down flat down rail. There was something for everyone!
The morning began with a clinic led by coaches Christine, Jen, and Janelle. Some girls were learning to get comfortable with their 50-50s while others were perfecting their frontboards and tailpresses. The game of ‘S.P.Y’ introduced the intermediate riders to new tricks, and in the end Amanda Cormier finished the game with the least amount of letters to win herself a sweet SPY Optics prize pack!
Everyone got right into it in the afternoon with music pumping and TELUS park crew Cody emceeing. The jam-format contest began and tricks were being thrown down in every category…frontboards, noseslides, switch boardslides…these girls were slaying the features! Some of the beginners were even hitting the rail with their newly-earned confidence. The advanced jam was what it all came down to, with a Nikita outerwear kit and $200 cash at the end of the rainbow. Lizzay Canters, Laura Price, and Zuzy Rocka stomped a slew of different maneuvers to bring them onto the podium at the end of the day. Another awesome Kinky Rail Jam at Big White thanks to the TELUS Park Crew and all of the sponsors!
