Chumpy has always loved performing and entertaining a crowd.

It took a great deal of courage and belief to follow his dream of becoming a World Champion snowboarder.

Chumpy strongly believes once he realised this, it was then he unlocked not only a higher level of success, but also a more constant state of happiness.
To give himself the best chance at performing his best, on days that decide the results, Chumpy works closely with a few like minded and highly driven people. Together, they create environments in his training sessions that put Chumpy under huge pressure in more than just the physical aspects, but also skill and mental.
Learn how environments such as this empty lung breath hold session seen here, build a huge amount of trust for Chumpy in his ability. And the confidence and self control it allows him to tap into when faced with other challenges in his career and personal life.
to the chase
Racing 5 other riders to the bottom of the mountain at over 80km/hr and flying off jumps of over 100ft to the landing, its safe to say Boardercross is an action sport. But even though the variables of each run in this sport are forever impossible to predict, Chumpy refuses to blame 'luck' for either good or poor performances.
There are many uncontrollable's in our careers and life. Using his sport as an example, Chumpy shares how to reflect on each testing moment, to be time efficient at improving our skills and awareness as rapidly as possible. When opportunities present themselves, you are there and ready. Not only that, you will never miss a valuable lesson as a result of blaming bad luck for a poor performance.
