Los Angeles, USA (23 February 2015) –Cardrona NZ freeskier Jossi Wells (Wanaka) has taken out fourth place in Big Air at the Air+Style event in Los Angeles, USA.
Presented by snowboarding great Shaun White, the Air+Style is a two day action sports competition. For the first time in its 21 year history the 2015 event was open to freeskiers as well as snowboarders with 32 of the world's best competing on a 16-story jump.
