USASA PacSun team athletes, Kelly Marren, JJ Tomlinson, Faye Gulini, and Mick Dierdorff had a great showing at X 14. This was everyone except Faye’s first X. Kelly Marren, who participated in Womens Superpipe, explains "It's cool to be a part of something that involves other extreme sports; to know that we are a part of something really big is really motivating".
In December I finally finished my first semester of college at the University of Minnesota. I am planning on a degree in physics and I had a 3.25 GPA my first term! After finishing school I immediately left for Colorado, my home for this winter, and started to practice in Copper’s 22 ft halfpipe. After riding there for a few days I had to pack my bags again and left for Mammoth Mountain in California for the US Snowboarding Grand Prix.
