Chris Polack from Rebelyell sent me this email for the up and coming bicycle film festival:
Use you imagination and get your film editing polished up cause now's your chance to show the world what 'bmx' is made of. Make it short, make it sweet but most importantly make it worthwhile.

Heres a flyer for a big event in Boyne Island (near Gladstone) called the "Coconet Classic" which is happening on the Easter long weekend (21-23rd March). As you can see diversitybmx as well as Tempered are sponsoring it (on top of 20 million other sponsors) and it has coverage by Fuel TV and Southern Cross Ten. Its gonna be a massive event and would be well worth the drive.
I just got some more Tempered shirts back in stock!
Weirdly enough i got some cool color mix's that i
did not even ask for so there are only a limited
number of sizes in each print on the designs you
see in the picture above.
Hit the Tempered website to find the online store
or go support us over at Steve's New shop, Ride On,
Over in West End.
Focal Point has a new web edit up from their recently released dvd 'Clocked In'. Check it out here. I've seen this dvd and its well worth the purchase. Ask for it at your local bike shop!
Cooper also has a fresh new layout for the site and has announced that the mag will now come out in an online version as well as the 2500 print copies.
If you live in the Brisbane area you may have been aware of some sessions every Wednesday night at Woodridge skatepark. If you weren't then its definitely worth checking out. Its a good way to meet new riders and if you're lucky get your self on an up and coming DVD.
To me ABBS was that crazy street dude you
see in video's and think holy fuck that dude
is wild! Accept i only saw like 3 clips of
him in an old Emancipate promo on the first
2020 Hindsight DVD. Ever since then i kept
seeing and hearing wild shit of the dude.
I thought it was definitely time to hit him
up for an interview over here on Diversity,
so you better hit READ MORE and check the
whole deal out!
ALSO: Terry from BMX Mafia has
sent us over 3 DVDs as a give away with this
Interview! All you have to do is answer these
simple questions, the answers are all here.
Who is Abbs sponsored by?
What is Abbs Local?
What finger did Abbs destroy?
Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will reveal the winners very soon!

Matt from Cropthorn just sent me over these pictures
of his two latest designs for the new 08 range. There
are a lot more rad as fuck threads out already from
Cropthorn, so head over to their myspace to check it
Head over to the Ugzine blog to check
out some really fresh shots of TemperedBikes
recent hook-up Darryn James.
Darryn has been shredding around for a while
now on some old dunga bike and the dude really
deserved a new ride!
Drew from Jindalee sent me this sweet video of himself and some of the other Jindalee locals ripping it up. Jack Birtles made the video and I think its really well done. Good to see some of the younger guys coming through with some high quality videos. Good work Jack!

This is just some of the wild shit that
went down when i was in Sydney. This
double front flip from West Oz Chris Jones
was definitely one of the most gnar things
i have seen in my life and i had spent a lot
of time on the road with this guy when i was
back in Perth doing demos and i never thought
he would be doing shit like this.
Also: i did not edit this vid.
For a while now Alex and i have been talking
about throwing up something new, maybe some
gnar story telling articles or a rad new bike
check, so when Alex got a new frame on his
door step it was time for a whole new bike check.
Theres also a few questions i asked Alex.
Click HERE to read the article.
I hope you enjoy reading is as much as i did
Lou Reeves from Anchor BMX has nice
bike check up over on Focalpoint.
Also: I returned from sydney and have
so many good memories from that place.
I have a bunch of footage but i can't
find the firewire cable for my camera.
So ill try and get some edits done when
