Light , darkening .. luois last trick of the day 270 tabletop.
/
Boredem more or less set in later that night in devo , so we headed out to browns bay skatepark .. apparently a light would be on , but it wasnt. We made good use of the cornas high beams and rode for about 45 mins , while 13 and 14 got drunk outside the police station by the public toilets , WHAT THE HELL... drunkens.

The way to the browns bay ramps and back , will be forever radical. Yelling , tahuhus , hangbanging , shaking the car , rocking out , headbanging pass out comp (thanks henry) , stopping at traffic lights hoping out and rocking!! all thanks to the ALMIGHTY SLAYER , decade of aggression live.

Next day me and louis passed on ridng devo in the morning and then headed to the brikenhead trails , these trials from what i know have been there for a decent time and we were greeted by mountain bikers , there was even fucken makeshift ladders in the trees , what the fucken hell??

Ye Ole Dirtjump & Version 2.0 of Hamilton

Soo, on the 19th of August it was decided that we would hit up the local dirt jumps, (well we not really including me or cody) the ride included steven, simon, nigel, some maori fulla and a random dickhead.

Trail + Sunset = Harmony? or stink because ride time is over? or RAD! because drinking time is starting? Actully, none of the above, drinking had started, and riding was still going on.

After seeing these pictures you may jump to the conclusion that we all love Simon, well you're half right.


Simon, tuck thats higher than Stevens ever beeen. Photo - Cody


Simon, Turning it down for the camera. Photo - Cody


Simon with his 3rd new trick for the day <----Wallride to invert


Steven, With not a durrie in sight, Wall tappage.

After this all that there was left to do was get on the turps, and as usual my house was the location, and nothing was broken this time! crazy.

Come the next day, and about 4 phonecalls from Luke later our trek was started to the land of rivers and lakes, Hamilton.

About a quarter of the way into the trip we were visited by the men (well, man, singular) in yellow, Yellow? you heard it here first. $545 later we were on our way.

Cody and the Man in Question.

As you can read below the main point in the trip was to get lukes new frame and bits to him.

We arrived in Hamilton at around 11am, rode melville for a wee bit well waiting for the Corona to arrive.

The Corona arrived around 12am, and Carl from Shed7 arrived not long after.
Well Luke was putting his bike together a wee ride went down.


Carl, With a Lookback, without even looking back...how fancy is that.


Simon, Tucking it up.


Louis didn't even bring his own bicycle down, but he still managed to tear up the flyout with this bicycle stunt.

From here we visited a burger king, where luke was running rampant(and like a little girl)
Then we said our goodbyes and headed to Fairfield for a quick ride.

From here it was to a friend housewarming doo...now, I have pictures from this, but I am not posting them...here, check my photobucket.

Next morning we all woke up, tired and some were hungover.

We managed to have a small ride/roll at Putararu, but the ride was lame as everyone was tired and Simon only managed to be able to get his wheel to stay semi-tight via hand tighting it.
And my camera battery died after I took one lame picture.


Untill next time . . .

Taupo...Jam? Pt. Two

Hey to all you people who actually come to this site ... A couple weeks ago a jam was posted over the net and i got multiple texts about it so , we thought .. yeh the hell outa viccies hahah. It was little over 5 weeks that i had broken my thumb and hand the pins taken out , so i was hoping my hand would be good , but it was too weak to hold onto the bar properly.

SonSkate Sucks , not like it was my fault???? Dont think tha pic needed to be there.

We left early to taupo at like 8 , so no doubt everyone was a little tired . Half the fun on a road trip with the rotos is yelling at people out of the window and stirring shit . The Demio Vs. the corona wasnt tthe fastest race ud ever seen , but she was a fair fight with ryan chuckin shit at them.

We stopped at putaru bowl for a ride and had a good session , putaru bowl is an old skool look but with decent trannies , all for made out for someinteresting stuff

Disaster on the vert , 180 disaster that is...

Well id like to say i had pictures of the taupo jam , but theres wasent much of a jam more like and organised ride that only a few made their way over to taupo to ride. Just us Goegre Luis mark and luke , Simon ryan steven cody Rotoruas Finest , Caleb and troy from Whangas ... and some of gisbornes riders and of course Jed who turned up late to his own jam , mind u its doesnt matter cuase he tore shit up , bit on the wild side with no brakes aswell...

After a couple crashes , we decided on making our way home ... this time a 3 car train , so i tripped on to roto with cody , Leader of the pack , Superior only to the demio Hahah. The drive back was some what different considering codys car was the only car without a slayer cd in it , we proceded to listen to atreyu , untill we hit some road revontion about 100 t0 200 metres of gravel , so why not give it a little V8 supercars , Swirve..Swirve.. untill the back let loose , we were out of control dion snakeys , untl we slid 270 to a stop. She was a quite drive back from there..
..There was only one mood anyone was ready for and taht was drinking , Simons house went off . Into the night everything was played from led zep , maiden...fucken evrything ... but the time come when its was slayer lined up , big 5 person handbanging recital of angel of death start to finsh , good shit...

Ryan photo.

After we rode the rotorua trails , built and maintained by the council and with different sizes varies from pretty decnt big 6 pack and bit bigger than box jump size 6 pack .. everytime they get bigger and smoother , thanks to the race track owners and the council ... Auckland are useless for this kinda shit.... Anyway this is my half of the update from the Taupo JAm , Ryan is underneath this post , so check it his version.

Also mikeD Unit ( www.zombie-flesh-eaters.co.nz ) is gunna set up a photo zine for NZ riders , wether its gunna happen sooner or later send him ur best pictures at bmx_is_rad@hotmail.com

It would be a crime to leave my 5 cent collection out of this , Elegantly modelled by Slayer hell awaits Vinyl ,
