Like most of us, Jamie Nicholls has been giving the snowboarding a rest over the summer. However, it's under doctor's orders in his case, after going under the knife to fix a gammy knee.

Here's a look at his first day back on snow. After a Benny Hill warm-up, Jamie joins Ben Kilner and Sam Turnbull for a few laps at Hintertux. From park to pow, that knee is holding up nicely, so we fully expect Jamie to be on fire once the contest season kicks in again.

Take another look at his latest Hemel Run for a reminder of what a fully-fit Nicholls can do.
