Claire's back from being broken!

Posted by Suzanne Akin on
Good news everyone, I am back out there on my snowboard! I am now recovered from a painful injury back in November, when I fell perfecting a 270 on an urban down rail at Boreal Mountain, CA. The only beneficial part about breaking my Humerus, is that I was able to return back to Colorado for two months to visit family and friends in: Summit County, Aspen, Glenwood, Steamboat, and Park City, Utah. I returned to South Lake Tahoe, Ca on February 5th, it felt great to be back and see my Tahoe friends!

As soon as I got home, I started snowboarding without my sling. I took it easy for a couple of weeks to give my arm a little more time to heal. This past week the snow conditions have been great, the snow really allowed my friends and I the chance to explore and find new places we can shoot. The black and white photo was taken in South Lake Tahoe back country. After a 45 minute hike this was the second pillow line we found. I could not stop smiling after dropping it. The wall ride photo was out by North shore Tahoe, this photo shoot never had a dull moment. We arrived at 11:30 and didn't leave till 5, all the riders got a few great shots and I know everyone left with a smile on their face. This Last photo is of myself representing my new Flow Snowboard! The photo was taken right before we left North Shore Tahoe. I want to thank photographer Geno Fonderoli for all of his hard work and in helping me get the best shot.
