Team LifeProof Highlights | July
“All In. All Summer” has been the motto for Team LifeProof this summer, reaching to grab every last drop of sun possible. Team LifeProof’s athletes have been pushing themselves to the limits in events across the globe and we’re excited to share with you all of their antics here in a short recap:
Lizzie Armanto – Skateboarding
Known for bringing female skateboarding into the mainstream media and being a pioneer for the sport, Lizzie is still stomping the competition around the globe. This time Lizzie competed at the LifeProof sponsored Vans US Open of Surfing under the Vans Pro Skate contest where she racked up a solid run to claim 2nd place. This is a brilliant result for Lizzie to keep the momentum flowing as she heads to Malmo, Sweden for the World Championships.
Adrian Krainer – Snowboarding
The snow may have melted in Austria, but that hasn’t slowed Adrian Krainer down, his thirst for extreme sports drives him to tackle the toughest trails the country has to offer.
Carro Djupsjö – Wakeboarding
Team LifeProof wakeboard star Carro Djupsjö may be out for the season due to injury, but that hasn’t stopped her hitting magazine features. Carro’s LifeProof t-shirt will be launching soon on lifeproof.com. Stay tuned
Kevin Rolland – Ski
Summer and snow? Kevin Rolland doesn’t take a break from his training in the summer. It just means he travels higher into the alps to find the best pipes to lay down his runs for the upcoming season.
Tom Schaar – Skate
Tom has proven himself as the best Big Air ramp athlete and now his focus is to prove that he is a multi discipline athlete to be reckoned with. He did just that at the Vans Pro Skate where he claimed an impressive 4th place in the bowl right behind Chris Russell, Ben Hatchell and Oskar Rozenberg. Check out all the highlights here:
Jonathan Paredes – Cliff Diver
It was a crazy month for our aerial acrobat Jonathan Paredes, who competed in two LifeProof sponsored Red Bull Cliff Diving events. Jonathan’s first stop was the Azores, Portugal, where he claimed an impressive 3rd place victory.
Within a couple of weeks, Jonathan was standing upon the historic Saint Nicolas Tower in the Bay of Biscay, La Rochelle where he put on a great performance. Unfortunately he couldn’t quite make the podium and finished the day in 6th place. Due to amazing performances throughout the season this didn’t effect Jonathan’s overall standings, still remaining in 2nd place behind the unstoppable Gary Hunt.
Brendan Fairclough – Downhill Mountain Bike
Check out how Brendan’s week went while at the 5th round of the World Cup in Switzerland in this edit by Scott Sports.
Stay tuned for more news on the antics of Team LifeProof coming the same time next month.
