There hasn’t been a royal family for slopestyle for a while , but with the 1st Bavarian Slopestyle Championship there is a new king.
Andre Kuhlmann from Garmisch Partenkirchen had been crowned on the 24th of March in the terrainpark of the Zugspitze. Blue skies and a perfect park made the event a true royal one.
Congrats King Andre the 1st!!

This week the Dutch championships where held in Laax Suisse. There where supposed to be 3 events for our riders: Slopestyle, Halfpipe and Big Air. Due to bad wheather the halfpipe competition got cancelled, there where rocks allover the pipe. For the 2 events that where left we had Flow Riders in every age category: Joey van de Noort, Youth Men (upto 12), Ziggey van Bouwhorst and Daniel Thio, Rookie (13-15), Jazzley van Bouwhorst and Jeremy Boshuizen, Junior Men (16-18) and in the Open Categorie Rocco van Straten and Aston Egelmeers.
And they all did great resulting in some exciting results:
Two kids became DUTCH CHAMPS in both of the events:
Joey van de Noort and Daniel Thio!!!! Well done and keep it up, they will hunt for you guys!!!!!!!!
But there was more Jeremy Boshuizen did great with 2 podium finishes, 2nd in slopestyle and 3rd in Big Air, whilst beiing the youngest kid in his category.
Ziggey finished on the podium in the Big Air becoming 3rd ,NICE!
In the open category Rocco had a tough time after he had just finished his 2 month recovery after his injury. Aston did good he finished just short of the podium in Slopestyle (4th place) and a 6th place finish in the Big Air. Well done for a first time competing in this open category.

This weekend there where 2 important contests for the Flow Crew from Holland and Belgium some of our Microns had 2 events too attend. So they went too Neuss on Saturday for the Chill and Destroy tour they needed some more points to qualify for the final event. This went quite good (we are getting used to our riders making it to the final heats). So they did.
Jeremy Boshuizen was the stand out guy for Flow grabbing 2nd place in the final with a solid run on the rails resulting in enough speed for a FS540 on the final kicker. Our young kids Joey and Jordy did great as well being 10 and 9 years old they finishd in 9thand 8th place. Well done guys!!!
In the Meanwhile in Landgraaf the Dutch Indoor championship was going on and man did the Flow guys kill it. On Saturday Erik Bastiaansen became Dutch indoor champion Slopestyle congrats!!! Ziggey van Bouwhorst joined Erik on the podium grabbing 3rd place. In the Rookie class. He only just beat Daniel Thio (He rides Flow as well through a shop sponsor deal Nul15 Boards and Lifestyle) to the podium who also did great finishing 4th.
Ziggey’s older brother was one of the younger guys in the Boys category and did great finishing in 5thplace. In the open class we had our recently fresh addition to the team killing it, Aston Egelmeers became Dutch Indoor champion Slopestyle, very nice!!!!!!! After this long day of shredding in Landgraaf there was a little party but back to bed in time to get some rest, next day they had the Big air contest.
In the Dutch Indoor Big air contest the guys killed it again with some sick airs and following that some great results. In the Rookie contest the kids grabbed 2nd ,3rd and 4th places well done Ziggey, Daniel and Erik. Jazzley did a great “job” competing in the Boys 16/18 class. He as one of the youngest kids grabbed 2nd place, great!!!! In the open class Aston performed at his best again winning with a big fs 7 melon. In the big air there also was a special shout out to Jordy Keesmeekers our 9 year old shredder from Belgium.
