PMQ homies Clint Lankester, Jeremy Lankester and Mitch Wilke made the most of the warm weather by taking a day trip to Forster via the new Laurieton park. The brothers Lankester have polar opposite styles, with Jeremy killing the peg game, and Clint coming through with the fast, stylish simplicity, which is really interesting.
Issue 30 of Focalpoint just came online, and it is full of all the content it's become synonymous with. A bunch of really nice photos, interviews with some lesser known riders, some scanned throwbacks and a few other cool pieces. Good shit!
Corey Bohan winds up his youtube reality show; 'The Wizard of Aus' at the Texas Toast Jam in Austin. There is a ton of riding footage, as well as a few words from Taj about the thesis of Toast. It's a really good way to wrap up the first season.
Tristan Montagu joined up with Zacahrya Dangerfield to put together this video for Impurity. Zac has a whole swag of wild front wheel tech, as well as some big air tricks. I think the 360 to Hang Five is a first, as well?
This is rad! Our very own Justy Bumpstead ripping around Browns Plains park in Brisbane. Has a sweet mix of fast, boosted moves and tech lip and manual tricks; all with more style than Vince Noir. The Hall and Oates track gave the video an awesome vibe, too. Hell yeah Justy!
Dan McNamara is only 14 years old, and has a deeper bag of tricks than most people many years his senior. I think Brisbane has a production line of stupidly good park kids, or something. Video by Jack Paton
Federal's Australia conncection, Jack O'Reilly managed to catch a few sessions at Seventies' Our House park. There are some sweet lines in here, but the no footer to table, and the ice to nose on the curved ledge were my favourites.
Gold Coasters John Falconer, Adam Cox, Eddie Shawcross, Sam Nikora, Shane Conlon, Will Hickman, Jason Peterson, Keahnu Doyle and Jye Stuart, along with Port Macquarie ring-in Jack Gibson shred the night session at Nerang. Some sweet bowl burning, and plenty of real cool lines on the plaza section, but Jye's last line was too good.
Paul Gerlich compiled a bunch of footage leftover from other projects, and put them to good use in this Scraps quickie. A bunch of good riding in this from some lesser-known Brisbane riders. It's really cool to see how people who ride together all the time develop completely different styles.
Jayme Timms headed down to the Sumners Road trails in Brisbane for an arvo session with Brisbane's resident trails hessian; Jon Mackellar. Jonny kills it, especially on home turf, with a few solid combos, and a fuckload of style. My favourite part about this, though, is that this is exactly how he rides every arvo.
During our Winter, Zac Miner left our shores for the warmer climate of So Cal, catching up with fellow Colony dude Ryan Guettler. In that time, they churned out this video, which is sweet. We catch Guettler doing some stuff that he's not so well known for, and Miner cruises a couple parks as well as getting some rad things done on street.
I'd heard rumours about this, and that it was supposed to be real crazy. It not only lived up to, but exceeded my expectations. Plenty of solid, and somewhat out of the ordinary lines in here, but that one three to smith was insane.
Woodward West are running a video competition, comprising of six teams and their footage from the camp; one of which being Colony. The video features Alex Hiam, Bobby Altiser, Chris Courtenay, Brandon Van Dulken, Clint Millar, Peta Shepherd, Ryan Guettler, Jourdan Barba, Tom Stretton and Paddy Gross, and it's awesome! Head over here and cast your vote!
AFRAY have just announced a new addition to their already stacked team; being Liam Zingbergs. To celebrate, they've dropped this new video; Andtroducing; Liam Zingbergs. Liam brings the heat, as does the rest of the team in their respective clips. John Young's behind the lens, so you know the production is on point. Afray are doing it right
The bicycle party that is the Annual Halloween Jam went down this past weekend, and Pete Conway was on hand to capture the action. Featuring Ammon Chesworth, Tom Stretton, Tom Boorman, Billy Brooks, Paul C, Josh Druce and many more. It looks like the typical awesome day. Did I spot a Holmes cameo?
UK Native Stephen Griffiths spent a few years on our shores, and has since departed for his homeland. In wake, Jack Birtles put together this sweet little video.
The Albury Halloween Jam popped off a couple of weeks ago, and Rhys Newling not only ran it, but managed to document the day, as well. Definitely has a rad vibe about it, dudes know how to have a good time!
Ali Hassan sent me this video featuring his crew; Jordan Meaghan, Ashley Ballard, and Ty Tsartoglou shredding some parks and a couple Brisbane spots over the course of a few weekends. These kids go in hard, and there are actually some real good clips in here, like that Hang 5 to 180.
