November 5th

Being unable to do our usual 5th November bon-fire and fireworks on the beach, due to someone unable to steer a ship around a reef that had been there for a thousand plus years, the beach was closed. Although I was invited to a backyard BBQ and fireworks so all turned out well anyway,


More trails...

Few pics of the trails



Went for a cruise around some of the trails, must remember 20 inch wheels, plastic pedals, and 80psi in your tires not so good on mountain bike trails. Summerhill has over 25km's of walking and mountain bike trails and some of the best views in the bay.

Afternoon in the woods

Another day, another landing.
Been pretty wet up the trails this last week, not to bad, good for digging, pretty soon we'll be complaining of the lack of rain.


The shade has returned, fresh new growth on the trees.

This edit is a bunch of clips all filmed around 2004-06 at my old indoor set-up, Shed Seven, see if you can name all the NZ riders in there.

Update from Jed

Here's an update from Jed on his journeys. Cheers Jed.


The past two weeks have been fun and productive. There was a video clip shoot for Chris Gentry at Stephen Murrays house a couple weeks ago. Other than that Luke and I have been jamming the yard and the new line the past week. Heres a photo of the Ute I got, a firework display at The Compound on July 4th and a Red Hawk, theres a nest of them close by and they learn to fly in the yard its cool. There was one of them the other morning eating a rat of the top of the big trick landing.

The Is What It Is Jam is set for next weekend 16th July in the back yard. Looks sick Vans and Pro Tech are sponsoring it so it looks like it will be some fun times! The weekend after is 1st round of Dew Tour Park in Beach City Merylands on the East Coast. So ill have some news for you all soon.

Thanks heaps,
Jed
