Alex Hiam and Chris Courtenay were part of a trip promoting the Sony Xperia phone from Sydney to Byron and Back. Both of these dudes are absolute ramp monsters, so as you'd expect, it's full of wild quaterpipe tricks.
13 year old Jack Whitehead submitted this video of himself riding some parks around Brisbane. He has a pretty reasonable selection of tricks for a kid who has been only riding eight months. I look forward to seeing his progression once he gets bigger and little more bike control. Keep at it dude!
To ring in the silly season, our good friends at Stowaway Distribution put together this really awesome video filmed during what looks to be a rad session at Chris & Will Kerr's trails during their trips for the D.A.N.E Jam. Featuring The Kerr Brothers, Jamie Moore and Ryan Lloyd, as well as two of my favourite Englishmen Toby Forte and Chaz Mann. These dudes have style for miles, collaborated with these trails, it's simply amazing.
The annual Andrew Legget memorial jam is going to be poppin' off this weekend at the South Newcastle beach skatepark this Saturday, the 22nd of December. These always look like a bloody good time, so if that's what you're after, get there!
Regular submitter Pat Freyne just got hooked up by new Gippsland-based clothing label Stay Local, with this being his obligatory introduction video. It's been cool watching Pat progress over the last few months, and this video is no different, particularly the ender.
This is the first, of what I hope will be many Diversity Q&A's. To kick things off, I hit up Hell On Wheels' Tom Boorman to find out a little bit more about the shop. Tom is a rad dude, and, despite starting from humble beginnings, the shop has a solid team behind it, and a bright future. Read on after the jump.
Dishonour have just dropped two new collaborations with Stay Deadly and Crispy Stream respectively. First up, is the Stay Deadly snapback, which is something of a five panel and starter hybrid, with a shallower fit but a more traditional shape. With a simple aesthetic featuring nothing more than a woven SD tag up front, and embroided 'Stay Deadly X Dishonour' in the back.
This is the video from the D.A.N.E jam that went down at the Stromlo jumps in Canberra recently. A veritable list of Australia's best trails riders shredding in memory of the legend that was Dane Searls. 9 minutes of pure awesomeness. Shot and cut by John Young.
Alex Coumailleau squeezed this fresh promo for Orange Juice. Frenchie has a rad ledge style, and makes the goofy four peg game look good. Yew!
Pat Freyne has been making moves with his scene blog Gippy Crew for a little while now, and this is their first full mixtape. Based around the scene at the Warragul skatepark, a wide variety of riding is showcased, from what appears to be a rather large crew. Whilst the level of riding from all is pretty high, Pat and Chris Nicol definitely steal the show. Their second mix is currently in the works, so I look forward to seeing what comes from these dudes!
I've always jived with Josh Kathigitis' riding, but unfortunately we haven't seen much from him since that rad 2020 cover way back in 2010, so I was stoked when I saw this pop up in my feed today. There are a lot of unique tire slide/ghost feeble type tricks in here, but the one that stood out the most to me was the pole jam, and the ender.
Dayvis Heyne gets it done in a three hour session at Monster for his threads hookup; Simple Man Clothing. The dope street influenced lines are abundant, but he is more than capable with more traditional park riding, as well. He also Nollies into a few things that you don't normally see nollied into.
I apologise for the lack of activity over the last week or so. I was on holidsy on the Gold Coast. Travis Bond sent through this short video of himself with some street-influenced park riding. He locks in a really good Ice, and a really good nose manual amongst other lines.
