Taupo....Jam?

Its been awhile . . .

Welp, basicly the weekend started off with Simon and I heading to AK on friday to pick up his bicycle from George, we had a quick thrash at Devonport during the day and just hung out watching bmx videos for the night.

Next day, 6am, about 4 hours earlier than my normal wake up time, we were awoken and got ready to head to the Taupo jam, picked up Mark (eWok) and then Luke and started our trek to Taupo.

On trip I had a Great Biggie wendy's cup which was half full with coke, tissues and other rubbish which was promtly ejected out the window, the coke managed to cover The Carona...heh heh, thats pay back for the Mountion Dew!

Stopped at Matamata for breakfast then carried on through to Putararu, a fun bowl with a hip.
I didn't get many pictures from this weekend...Luke has quite a few which he will no dout keep to himself, but heres the pictures from Putararu:


Botched Air Photo of George.


Mark, Turndown


Mark, Tailwhip Attempt, hes at the stage where he just has to get over the frame and he'll have it sussed, took it quite hard a couple attempted after this catching his feet on the coping and chin diving into the ground..wasn't overally bad thoe.

From Putararu we headed to Taupo, arrived around 1ish and meet up with the Gisbourne dickheads (heh heeeh) Matt was ripping shit up as usual, George, Louis and Mark equally aswell. Jed doing the craziest nose dived 3's over the spine...they're basicly like this |
I'll hopefully have some footage to post up sooonish from Taupo.


Shitty Photo, Jed, Small bowl to large bowl transfer.

As it started to cool down we left Taupo on route to rotorua, hung at my hizhouse for a bit, watched half of Megatour 4 (Note: don't waste your money on it) and then headed to food then booze.

Simons house went off...and I don't think I'll say much more.

Theres a couple more pictures in my photobucket album, use your 1337 hacking skillz and have a geeeze.


Luke = Slaytanic

peace out scumbags.

I just got a txt from a random number about a Jam in taupo.

So I guess you should do exactly that.

Le Roadtrip

it t'was decided upon the wednesday of the week before that we would head to hamilton and maybe raglan on Saturday, saturday being yesterday.

A Crue was assembeled, Simon, Cody, Steven, J-rad and I, Simon and cody stayed at my hizhouse the night before for a couple of drink's and steven and j-rad arrived late on saturday.

We left, listening to Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry on my radical tape deck, arrived at hamilton for a ride at Melville park, the hip's were wet, or was I just a pansy?
No pictures were taken from hurr.

From meville we headed out of town to Nrgawahia (which I have no idea as to how to spell) and, well, you would think we just rode the quarter by these pics, but belive me, some flyout action also went on.


Steven, Table


Simon, Turndown


Simon, Invert?

From here it was decided that we would head to Raglan, along the way we managed to anger multiple people and argue about houses, Cody said that he wanted a old house, Simon and I said that we wanted a new house done old, this argument went on for awhile as cody says you cannot have a new house done ole, from this argument it was decided that anything more than a day old, is OLD, so therefore it is basicly impossible to have an object new.

ugh...so, onto Raglan, which is now the home of David from le Fly Bikes.

It was a good session at raglan, I took photos and lay down for some time to relax and take advange of the perfect Raglan weather.

Once again, you would think that all the others rode was the quarter, which is half true.


Steven, Air


Simon, Air (higher air up in hurr)


Simon, Invert over the hip.


Steven, Table over the spine/hip thinger.

After raglan we headed to Burger King, and then onto Fairfield skatepark, which is always a fun ride...and you guessed it, more quarter pics, well kind of.


Simon, Turndown and as you can tell by my extreme photoshop skillz he left the quarter on the right and landed on the left, as he also did in the next picture.


Simon, Invert Hippy, gapy, thinger.

From here we headed to melville again then back to Rota poo hole.

Cody pulled a mean Nosepick on the way home thoe:


Thats about that, I was looking into getting some band shirts in, but the minimum order is 2000 shirts...if you have 1998 friends then give me a yell!
