Nate is back to being Nate… running 41 again at Malibu?????? Everyone at D3 World Headquarters SUPER STOKED
Also excited for Team Skiers Adam Sedlmajer and Tyler Yager who are in the round of 16 skiing tomorrow.
Are you ready for a new Quest? The release date is 8/11/2014
Get ready to improve your scores…
She’s called by a unique nickname, wears a signature hairstyle and recently tied the G3 national slalom record with a score of 1 buoy @ 39 ½ feet off. Let’s find out what is up with the rising slalom star, Bailey Austin.
You have been pegged as the Super Chicken. Where did you get your nickname?
The whole Super Chicken name came from the old cartoon that my dad used to watch. He called me that for the first time when I was warming up and flapping my arms like a chicken.
What made you decide to always wear your signature top knot when you slalom?
I first started wearing the bun when my hair was so long that the ponytail was smacking me in the face. I figured I’d try something different. Plus, I needed the extra drag.
Who have you been training with and where do you ski?
I’ve been slaloming with Trent Finlayson since I was eight years old and I mainly ski at Aquaplex where I live.
How did it feel to run 38 and tie the G3 national slalom record?
I got to five ball in pretty good shape and I kept telling myself, “don’t screw this up.” I was still in shock once I got out the gates. I went way too hard for my 39 gate just to make sure I got a full one. I was so excited I was shaking for a solid 30 minutes.
What have been some of your other big accomplishments this season?
Two weeks ago I ran 5 @ 38 in Covington, Louisiana which was an SCR Regional record. My other big accomplishment would be winning Junior Moomba this year.
When can we next expect to see you competing?
My next tournament is the Malibu Open in two weeks and nationals is the week after that. I will also be skiing in the Little Mountain Pro Am in September.

Word has it that Chris Parrish is breaking through the barriers of 43 off and has been rounding 3 ball in practice.
Justin Campfield, PR at Goode Water Skis, confirms the buzz.“Chris has been spending a lot of time at 3 ball in practice lately,” Campfield said. “His mind is right, his body is right and his equipment is right.”
