That concludes another step in the journey! Taking home the title of the new Australian Freestyle Champion.
The biggest thank you for those who held fast when it wasn’t all smiles and laughter and seemed like it was all falling apart through the tears, blood, injuries and struggles.
It’s exciting to see the rapid development of the sport within Australia and more importantly the level of support and sportsmanship that everyone has been giving to fellow flyers across the country.
For those who are about to embark on their own journey note that “when you consider doing something that you truely love and are invested in, you are going to feel an influx of fear, mostly because it will involve being vulnerable. Bad feelings should not be interpreted as deterrents. They are indicators that you are doing something frightening and worthwhile. Fear = Interest.”
Thank you Atawhai Charteris for the smooth video edit!
