H131 in Brazil
Arrianne Aukes (RRD / Simmer / Dakine / AL360) is one of the rising stars in the women’s freestyle fleet. Since she made her debut in 2010 she has spent countless hours on the water developing her moves and her style. In 2011 she blew the judges away at every competition and battled her way into fifth place with her powerful flakas and switch moves.
This winter Aukes was obviously keen to escape the cold weather in Europe, so made her way to the freestyle mecca of Jericoacoara in Brazil to train loads of new moves in perfect conditions. It looks like the training has paid off and she is certainly going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2012 as she has been pushing herself to nail the most technical of moves including ponchs, burners and even konos.
With four month to go until the first women’s freestyle event of the season in Aruba, Aukes still has plenty of time to train on the water. 2012 is set to be a spectacular season for the female freestyle fleet with so many talented and driven ladies all hungry for a taste of glory.
