Blue bird skies welcomed in the second day of the BRITS 09 for the Quiksilver Big Air Championships yesterday and the standard of riding was immense. Laura Berry stepped it up with a huge 360 to take the 2009 British Quiksilver Big Air Championship title.
Laura Berry quoted: “I missed the last two BRITS because of an injury so this is pretty sweet. “I’m really stoked. It’s awesome to be back and I’m really pleased I landed the 360”
