Flow Snowboarding Team takes USASA Nationals by Storm

COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colorado — At the 2014 USASA Nationals, Flow rider Julianne O’neill (maiden name Brackett) took 1st in Women’s class slopestyle and 2nd in Women’s Boardercross. The young woman was on fire the whole event and was easily the stand out in the Women’s class. Riding her Flow Jewel, Julianne rose above the rest of the competition in slopestyle. “The event was perfect!”, exclaimed O’Neill,  “All the girls were cheering each other on, and each one of us put our best run down. It was good competition. I was so happy with how I performed”. However, the talented Californian was not content with just one podium. Julianne came right back with a solid 2nd place finish in boardercross. “The boardercross was so intense! It was the most fun! My heart pounds so fast when all of us girls are rubbing elbows. Huge thanks to Adam Neil and the ASC team for helping tune my jib board! I rode my Flow Jewel in slope and boardercross, it might be my favorite board that Flow has!”.

Julianne was not the only Flow girl that shined bright at Nationals. Flow Micron Sophia Capua placed 2nd in slopestyle at her very first USASA Nationals appearance. The pint-sized boarder had no fear with the daunting slopestyle course that was triple her size. Sophia cruised her way to the podium with style while riding her Flow Micron Mini. Also, Flow Am Lydia Silber took 2nd in girls (age 12-13) slopestyle! Lydia also competed in halfpipe and was going higher out of the pipe than any of the other young girls. Expect big things from this girl.

Not to be outdone by the ladies, Nathan Jacobson had to make a statement for the Flow men’s team by taking a 3rd place in the men’s open halfpipe event and 6th in the Open Slopestyle. This was a solid result amongst some fierce competition. “The event was so fun”, Jacobson told us, “No pressure just trying to have as much fun as possible while trying to get the best results as possible. I was riding the Flow Shifty in the halfpipe and the Flow ERA for slope and they were so much fun to ride, those are my top choices of boards for halfpipe and slope”. Flow’s Freddy Silber & Kaiya Quintieri also had a solid showing as well as all of our other Flow amateurs. We are so proud of all of the Flow riders, just to make it to Nationals is an accomplishment in itself.
