The actual name for this block is Port and Starboard. If Nancy Cabot had heard of Snowboarding and Slopestyle in 1937, I'm sure she would have changed the name of her block.
Free rotary cutting instructions are here. The block finishes 12" x 12".
I wanted really bright colors for this particular block. The athletes in this sport seem like daredevils. How do you get up the nerve to do all these stunt.
Slopestyle, tests a rider’s ability to handle a variety of terrain by executing freestyle maneuvers down a course filled with terrain features including rails, hips, tabletops and a multitude of jumps, allowing riders to combine big air and technical tricks into one run.
I loved watching one of the interviewed with Sage Kotsenburg, the US athlete who earned the first gold medal of the 2014 Sochi Olympics and the first-ever gold medal awarded in the new snowboarding slopestyle discipline. Basically he tried a trick that he had never practiced before and executed it flawlessly.
This is the final block in the series. Watch for tomorrow's posting for a layout to incorporate all of these blocks.
