DataWax Athletes - Winter 19/20
Tom is one of our sponsored freestyle skiers from Tamworth and part of the GB Park and Pipe Ski Team. He is the 2019 British Champion in Slopestyle and Big Air and started competing in Europa Cups in 2018, a massive achievement having only started learning freestyle at the age of 12. Over the winter Tom tries to spend as much time in the mountains as possible, with a lot of time spent in the parks in Laax and Livigno. Summers are often spent hitting up the rails in the snowdome while keeping up his fitness with trampoline sessions. Tom’s biggest love for the sport comes from trying out new tricks and putting together video edits.
Some of Tom’s titles include;
- Europa Cup Slopestyle 12th, France 2019 & Big Air 6th, Switzerland 2018.
- World Junior Champs 2018 Cardrona 17th Big Air, 22nd Slopestyle.
- Brirtish Indoor Champs 2018 2nd Slopestyle.
