From the archives

 Found some old pic's, these where shot by Nigel "Nizz" Humffreys around 2007 I think.

These first 2 are from Jeremy Jefferies backyard in Tauranga, the warrior with a whip and yours truly with a superman, pretty sure my brake cable snapped on that jump and had to ghosty off the next berm, and my bike ended up at the top of a neighbours tree. Fun jumps for sure
These next 2 are on a road trip to Wellington for X Air. Yogy kissing the tire and me with a fufanu on Alisters back.


Chillin at the local, ATK.

These next few are from the NZ dirt nationals at Blake park Mt Maunganui, first 2 are Paul Langlands with a T-down and one handed no foot can. comment

Judges, Pete Langdon, Grant Adams and Carl Cavanagh

 Jed, massive whip

This last one an old pic of Summerhill trails, Nizz was one of the founding members of Summerhill and got me amped on digging there, alot has changed now.

Snapped these pic's a week or so ago when I was in the mighty C-Town, Paul Langlands shredding his backyard.

Not from the archives

First post for a while, been so busy/slack on it. Although I should have more regular content now Summer is upon us and there will be plenty of shredding to be done.

I managed to catch up with a NZ BMX legend, Grub. If you don't know Grub, he was one of the top riders around, and has the ability to make anythng funny, never a dull moment thats for sure.

Grub was one of my biggest influences on riding when I was growing up (still haven't really, just thought I'd add that before you thought it) so it was good to catch up. He has recently bought a new bike so we headed down to our old local the infamous "Melville Bowl" for a carve. Couldn't help myself and had to film a few clips, theres a few tricks in there you may not have seen before including Grubs signature stunt the "no-footed half-bar". Check it out.

Snapped these few photos of Jed and Henry getting it done at the Mt Indoor, about a month ago and never got around to posting them. Not that you can get much done at that park, although thats a whole other story. Enjoy...

Woods update

Managed to get up the woods on Saturday, been pretty slack lately and digging trails has been pretty low on the list of things to get done. All of the trees have lost their leaves, although days are getting longer, apparently we are gaining 1 minute of extra daylight every day, so won't be long and we'll be back to evenings up the woods.

Been working on a new spine on Crete line can't wait to hit it up...

A Flawless Session

I managed to get to Taupo on the weekend for a jam that Hemi Mildon was involved in organising. The weather held out for what was a good days riding, highlights for me would have to be Hugh Wotherspoon for going higher than everyone, Jon Riddle super consistent and smooth riding, Joe Simpson flipping the Taupo spine don't think many people have done that and of course the after party. I managed to film some clips and threw this edit together, check it out.

Photo of the day

Todays "Photos of the day", a few of one of Summerhills finest Jonny Sanderson. Currently living in the UK. Jonny was known as the steath digger, we would hardly ever see him, although on more than one occasion when turning up at the trails there would be a new landing, and the comment would be "Jonny's been up the woods".The true deffinition of digging more than you roast.
