Lake fun

Bonjour! This past weekend my family and I had some fun out on the pontoon boat with some other families. Great times! It's is always good to relax all day in the sun and not have a care in the world. Unfortunately, I only spent about an eighth of the day doing that while the rest was spent swimming, diving, and jumping off the boat with friends. Here are some more photos.

Kasey, being cool as always

Last but not least, muscles posing for the camera.

Check back soon!

Back Home. Homework, Family

               Hey guys! Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I have gotten a little lazy these past few days with just relaxing at home and not having to do anything! Well I'm back from New Zealand and the last weekend has consisted of hanging out with family and friends at home. I also have been working on lots of homework because I am still (technically) a sophomore in high school (oops!). I'm on track to catching up with school in the next month or so, so I'm looking forward to that. I went on a run with my dad and my dog today around lunch time which was fun. After all this skiing, I can still keep up with my old man on a 5 mile run (surprisingly). Being outside felt really good given that I cut my hair as soon as I got home! I definitely am missing the snow right now but it's good to be back home with the family for a while. Planning on going back out on the boat this weekend. Going to be fun!

Beginning of my New Zealand Trip!

Hey every one! My July and early August has been full of excitement. i returned home from Windells in late June and have spent most of the month of July at home with my family and friends. The Goepper family took a marvelous vacation to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina following my return home. Here are some photos

Bring it on hi tide!!

Following directly after Ocean Isle beach with the family, I spent the next week coaching at Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp in Mansfield, Ohio.

Following my week at Ohio Dreams, I began my journey to New Zealand for 11 days to ski and compete with the Windells Academy. New Zealand is a fantastic place and I am truly thankful for this awesome opportunity! My parents and family, along with my sponsors and Windells have been awesome to allow me to do this! Here are some photos from my experience so far.

If there is one thing that New Zealand has way to much of, its sheep! There are about as many sheep in New Zealand as there are people in California.

Here is a view of the valley as we were driving over a pass to get to Wanaka where we were staying

Stay tuned for more updates coming from New Zealand!
