15-year-old Sunny Steele has been on a one-way-warpath this year after adding yet another successful season to his books. Being a master of his craft, Sunny offers what a lot of riders his age can't, and that's the ability to dominate both halfpipe and slopestyle. Sunny claimed first place in halfpipe and slopestyle at this year's Australian Junior Championships. Sunny also won the gold at Thredbo's Slopestyle Series. Being no stranger to the silverware, Sunny will be representing Australia at the Youth Olympics in January in Switzerland. He'll then be competing against some of the world's best at the World Rookie Tour Final followed by the Junior World Championships.
We've personally watched and followed Sunny's progression over the last two years and couldn't be happier for his success. Congratulations, Sunny, the future looks bright and we can’t wait to see what comes next.From Phootstep Films: "Sunny Steele has been a big part of my winter once again and I'd like to commend him on maintaining his attitude of 'nothing but love' for snowboarding while a world of political turmoil exploded around him. If a kid has any dream of representing their country, especially in an Olympic arena, the expectations put on them are treacherous to say the least. For Sunny to manage those expectations and still rock up day-to-day with a fun first attitude is remarkable. On ya mate"
