Norwich School pupil, Charlie O'Shea, is currently competing in the European Snowboarding Freeride Junior Tour. Charlie is training with the Les Arcs Freeski Academy and is the only snowboarder in the team. He's embracing this fantastic opportunity and enjoying getting to know his French team mates.
Pictured below is Charlie at last weekend's competition in Verbier, Switzerland. Charlie had a kit malfunction not long after the third photograph was taken. Thankfully he was able to ride one footed, but as he landed the drop he flipped over, which is not allowed in the Junior Tour.
Charlie has 6 other competitions throughout the season, the next one being this coming weekend, 19th January.
