Dew Hut Jam, Mt Buller, July 30
Saturday was the 2011 Dew Hut Jam at Buller and although the comp was shifted forward three hours due to an incoming weather front, it was still the best conditions I think I've seen the comp run in. The guys were all killing it in the chase for a piece of the five figures up for grabs. In the end, it was Team Burton, consisting of Jye Kearney and Chris de Campo, that took first and walked away with $10,000. The best trick, which required both team members, was won by Team K2 consisting of Nick Wood and Andy Lloyd who stomped a backside rodeo 540 and switch backside rodeo 540 combo for $1k each. The Gatorade Rookie prize, which was judged over three parts including a public vote and a peer poll, went to Jye Kearney making it a very successfull day for the guy! Check some highlights below and a few photos above. We have a full gallery from the day coming later in the day!
