So last weekend was the annual NASS Festival at Bath and West Showground. It was wet and muddy but Em and i were staying in a B & B so we were lucky I guess!
After stressing most of the day because we couldn't leave Horsham until 3pm, we actually had a good journey and turned up at the showground at about 6.30pm, in good time for the comp. lots of the girls were skating the flat ground area at the back of the course to get a bit of a warm up. Alexis Sablone was in attendance and popping tricks like your meant to.
The comp eventually got underway at about 8.45pm, a massive improvement on last years 11pm! There were 5 heats of 3-4 girls in each...a pretty decent turnout....mad international as well. i found it quite hard to get used to the course, not because it wasn't good (it was probably the best yet), but because i hadn't seen any skateboarding on it. There were obvious lines, but i like to see the mens comp to get inspiration and its good to know what speed you need for what etc. The worst thing was having to go first. Some girl bottled it and that meant that I was the first girl to have to skate their 1 minute individual run. I literally felt sick!!! Nervous wasn't the word. Anyhow, managed to skate my way into the final with 6 others; Swede Emma Fastesson, italian Anita, USA Lacey Baker and Alexis Sablone and Brazilian Leticia Bufoni!
I enjoyed the final a bit more and finally started to feel like my legs were my own! Results below:
