Wheels for Curekids

Managed to get out of the woods on Saturday in time for the last show at Wheels For Curekids. Such a sick event put on by a good crew for a good cause. World class riding for sure. Couldn't find many good places to shoot from, got a couple of reasonable shots though.

Levi Sherwood... No hands, double dip, steel ramp, enough said.

The Crew

Note I spotted on the Freestyle Lifestyle box jump, always best to carry a spare. I recently drove a caravan to the Taranaki and back without a spare, maybe I should take my own advice.


Been digging up the woods a bit lately, late season this year boys have been a bit to ambitious, not long now though. Had to lower the old roll in on the weekend, gave us a good opportunity to give the new roll in a bigger deck.

New years 2017-18

Happy new year,

Went on a family road trip to the Taranaki over new years, here is a short video I put together of our trip.

2017 Jedi jam

Been a while since the last Jedi jam, so its good to have this event back again. Always a good time in Taupo. Props to Jed Mildon and Tane Lawless for organising and running this event again. Personal highlight for me was the 20+ rider train on the dirt jumps in spa park.

Managed to shoot a bunch of photos, enjoy.

2017 NZ Dirt Nationals

Here's a few snaps I got at the 2017 NZ Dirt Nationals a while back.

Full credit has to go to Paul Langlands for organising and running this event, speaking from experience it takes a lot of work to put on an event like this and not many people understand what goes on behind the scenes. Shot Langers 2018 will be even better.

Winter is upon us leaves are falling, digging season has begun. Managed to get an ANZAC day roll on the trails. Trails were running super good, even after all the rain we have had lately. C-Town locals Paul Langlands and Hugh Wotherspoon made the trip over for the day along with part time local Nathan Saunders from Rotorua. Even had a cameo appearance from the elusive Gold Factor. Rad day in the woods with a good crew. Got the camera out to film some clips and make this video, enjoy.

More trails

Another edit from Summerhill Trails. Good jam up the woods on Saturday, just a few of the locals were present and I was off the bike, so I actually managed to capture some half decent footage. Also managed to build a sweet retaining wall for the new soon to be built dirt quarter. Enjoy
