Just got back from another mint road trip, we (Ramon and I ) went to the Frew farm and also the stoney hills dirtjump jam in Dunedin . Both spots were the Shizzle , 1st we went to the Frew farm to check out the new line, have a swing on the shovel and kick it with my mates Dan and Brett Frew and also my hometown homey Karl Bensemann . The boys have been busy and there is some awsome new stuff to ride there , keep your eyes peeled for farm jam coverage will be a BANGER. We had a quick sesh on the new hip line and headed for Stony hills.

We turned up and the trails looked amazing, the Henry/James and crew had been diggin hard and the weather was the best I had ever seen it in Dunedin! we sessioned till dark on friday night and woke on sat morn to another sunny windless day.

I went for a quick surf at st Clair beach then went to the trails and started riding ,the trails were running sweeet and they had a judged jam which was a 45 session and the two extra 2o min sessions to bring out the bangers.

Every one was having a great time a few high lights from the top of my head were the up and coming shredders Phil M , Conner and Elmo gettin it DONE with great riding/tricks all over the trails, Conners 360 transfer was off the CHIZ , Brett Frew was spilling STEEZ every where as usuall , Karl Bensemann was up in the trees BOOSTIN , Team ENGLAND Foz,Tom, Seb and Duncan were makin the most of every line and left no jump untouched and finally I was pumped to some how win the judged jam ...Yahooo!

Thanks to every one involved for a super sick weekend of "Roastin Trails"

We had enough of the northisland and headed for the "real" New Zealand , The SOUTH island of course! We called into My home town of Nelson and jammed my entire room into my van which was Chaos ! I followed Ramon down to Chch Via the samll town of reefton which has one of the sickest skate parks in New zealand . We had a cool ride there and it helped me get used to my New Corsair Ducat frame.

after that we headed to the big smoke of CHCH , The trip wasn't with out some dramas , just as we got into CHCH the fan belt on my van snapped and started over heating we had to tow it to where we were staying thru peak boyracer traffic which was entertaining , ramon stopped to find his torch in the back of his van and moved the Kayak and it smashed thru his back window! the night was not runnung to smoothly , we also got snapped by a redlight camera which was great! We made it back to petes joint at about 2am and caught some sleep so we could ride the jam in the morning.
1st stop for the Jam was Petes new Trail he built called Pop and fresh ,it was a super fun freeride/jump trail on the port hills and we all sessioned it in sections and threw down a few STUNTS here and there. It is good to see people gettin out there and building trails
Next it was off to the Main venue , BowenVale dirt jumps at the bottom of the port hills.
The jumps were in super good nick and we had a good throw down session , I was impressed with a few of the grommys who are defintly steping up. good shit boys.
We had a knock out style trick comp on the step up which I some how ended up taking out ,if ramon had landed his 3whip in the final it would have been different!
we had a bit of a party after the whole thing was done which turned out to be pretty funny!
Cheers to Aint a big deal MTB show , Pete,Toby, Mike ,Andrew and Phil and the rest of the bvale crew for hookin it all up .

Sunday it was a chilled ride on the Flyin nun track...a coll mellow flowwy track on the port hills.
CHCH riding scene is definitly taking off.
Cheers !

Yo Peeps
I have a new frame sponsor for 2010 and it is CORSAIR , I am fully stoked on it , I just got the Ducat hard tail built up and had a quick ride , I will be building up a new Konig slopestyle bike and Crown DH bike in the next month so look out for some pics .
Corsair make bikes that target the kind of riding that I do so riding their bikes makes alot of sense.
I'm really excited about my new bikes and 2010 is shaping up to be a sick year of riding I will be going to Queenstown to live/ride for 1 month and after that its on a plane to Switzerland to get a van and travel around competing in comps all over Europe for 3 months, then the start of july I will be heading back to Whistler to base myself there and Compete in the USA/Canada comps and also do some coaching for Camp of Champions .
Thanks to all my sponsors for 2010

We called into see the Team at Worralls on the way out of town this morning and picked up some gear for my new bikes I am Building up….(what kind of bike???? ! look out for more posts coming very soon!!) I got some sweeeeet SRAM gear including orange and green anodized X.O derailleur’s and shifters which look sooooo TRICK and weigh nothing! Also new 661 Kyle straight Kneepads,and also some super low profile ….. elbow pads since I cant wear bulky elbow pads and Also a new GIRO Section helmet which has the shell integrated into the poly and is ridiculously light weight and looks Primo!
It was cool to see the worrals HQ and see where it all happens , Thanks to Allister , Mavis and the Team at Worrals .

RAMAPGE bike park

Rampage park is a new Indoor BIKE park that has started Auckland , It is really cool to see some one start up something cool like this so Ramon and I were keen as to go and check it out! We turned up to the north shore warehouse to find a fully sick set up all made of brand-new ply with a 6 foot spine mini set up ,2 small box jumps ,2 bigger steep box jumps in rhythm ,a vert wall and a Hella sick foam pit . I couldn’t get my pads on fast enough to ride ! every thing was made really nicely and it felt good to flow thru the box jump rhythm and boost the Vert wall at the end . I also had a mega huck session in the foam pit and possibly lost 50 litres of sweat ! eeeewwww. Again it is set up really well with nice foam and 2 goood kickers.
We stayed there the entire day and had a blast YOU should check it out !

Sick weekend

Well the coast to coast jam is all done and it was a fun as hell event , we got up at Chrises farm in huntly and loaded up the mighty van and High tailed to Raglan to ride the first stop of the coast to coast tour . We turned up at lewis’s place to find the jumps were wet and every one was at the Raglan bowl so we headed there and busted some airs which was sick its like concrete trails there! It flows really nice.
We went back and had a quick sesh on the the dirtjumps but they were pretty wet so we headed to the Beverland compound to get our huck on.
Chrises jumps are situated in huntly and flow down one of the rolling hills on Chrises farm. They have a sweet wall ride midway and we had some massive floodlights and the REDBULL HUMMMER with crakin sounds to keep the session crankin into the night.
A bit of wind stopped the session from starting but it died off and we got down to bizo.
There were Grommys shredding all over the shop ,mega boost, mega steez and mega transfers was getting thrown down on a regular basis.
But again it was Paul Lang banger getting LOOOOSE , tricks on every set and slayin the final jump with flip turn downs , three turndowns and even going for a couple of flip whips . which was dam ballsy as the landing was rock hard..
I loved riding the line and jumping at night with a whole bunch of rad peeps stoked me the hell out . I kept it pretty chill with a few 3’s, flips and no cans etc and just had fun ridin .
We woke in the morn to Rain , the team headed to Caseys jumps about an hour away , we got word that they were wet so we missioned with the Red Bull crew over to Paul langlands backyard jumps. It was super windy there but we had a quick session anyways and then rocked to the old school Crankin park in Ngarawahia I cruised in the Red Bull Hummer and it was epic ! haha I got to get me one of those weapons! We only just fitted out the gate of Pauls and the was an massive amount of stereo equipment between the passenger and driver. People just stared at us as we rumbled past .haha !
Crankin park was cool we pedaled are ass’s off and hit some fun pretty mellow booters And did big ol whips.
It was getting late so we piled in the Hummer and smashed it back to Auckland . We had a tour of the Red Bull head quarters in Ak which was primo , what a RAD company Red Bull is, any thing that is kickin ass they are behind it seems!
That was the end of a sick weekend! Thanks to all involved ,Chris B and family for having us to stay and ride ,UNIT clothes for Hookin up some mean threads for the Jam , Justin from Red Bull for cartin me around in the hummer Timmy , Mavis ,Diggler and crew for getting RAD . CHEERS! p.s sorry for the lack of pics ! we were to busy riding!

North Island ROADY

Hey Brah’s
I am On an Mega ROADY at the moment . It started on Monday when we (me and my mate Ramon from Switzerland )headed out of my home town Nelson and on to the ferry to Wellington to smash up the north island , as soon as we got to Welly we called into see my mate Caleb from SPOKE magazine to check out his new house/family member ,talk some shizzle and score a new T shirt. Cheers Caleb!
WE then cranked up the mighty van and headed to Taupo for a quick sk8park sesh at the kick ass park in Taupo.
After a few manuals/ airs we headed out to see my mates MORK and Paul Langlands in Cambridge . Paul has a sick set of jumps in his oldys back yard so we had a sesh on them , It was pretty windy but it was still good fun to ride with Paul and Mork.
We headed to another spot in Cambridge that was a bit more sheltered with some pretty high speed more MTB steez jumps ..hella yeah I was super stoked on them and we had a sick session until the light died off.
We went back to Mork and Pauls for a BBQ extravaganza and munched way to much food.
Wendsday it was on to Roto rua , we called in to see Matt at Wide open and checked out the Premises and got the LOW DOWN on the Roto trails.
No shuttles were running so we headed out for some XC missions, Ramon borrowed a sweet Turner Sulatan 29er from Wide Open and we went out and had a rip on the famous flowy Rotorua trails . The trails there are fun as hell , we spent the afro out there shreddin and then dropped the Turner back at wide open and had a quick Shralp on the Pump track which was primo.
After a day of pedaling it was out to dinner with the Wide open boys and then straight on to Tauranga to hopefully “hang ten” on some waves in the morning . We awoke on the beach to some pretty small waves so we went dirt jump hunting in Tauranga and found the dirtjumps at sunnyhill park which were a decent size but hadnt had any love for a while… we flagged it and headed to the big smoke of Auckland to ride/shoot pics at Woodhill park…
With all of our cell phones flat we some how managed to meet up with chris B and international trailbuilding guru /29inch freestyler/general shredder Seb Kemp in down town Auckland and got a game plan together.
The boys at Wood hill had built a big ass jump at there jump park so we went there and sessioned it.
The jumps out there are pretty fun and good for tricks , I was having a good session and loving the new boooter out there.
My mate Chris B ended up having a nasty slam and knocked himself out and broke his hand so I had to drive his truck to the hospital which put an end to our sesh which sucked but im stoked he is ok .
We stayed in AK the night and I picked up Chris from the hospital in the morn and we headed to the Beverland compound to set up banners and prep his jumps ready for his jam.
We got some lights and rode the jumps at night last night which was cool .
Right now I am about to load up the van and head to Raglan for the first stop of the coast to coast jam ….SO I gotta go!
The Mega roady will continue from here to welly , over to Nelson , Reefton park ,CHCH ,Dunedin for Stoney hills ,then Queens town ,then Farm Jam ….SO look out more post coming sooon..
