we did heaps but not really alot

So, Whangamata trip went ahead as planned. hit that up during the day with a quick stop at Waihi with the old school bowl and the biggest dickheaded skaters ever...and the single most annoying question kid who wanted to know my life story and more...im sure you know the type "can you do a backflip? what kind of bike is that? can you do a 360? can you do a tailwhip? How long have you been riding for? do you know Phil Urwin? ....blah blah blah blah blah blah" as he snakes you on his mountion bike with a missing pedal. oh to be young again huh?

Heres some pictures from the trip and the box jump at Whanagamata.

Simon, Jared, Jed & Josh came along for the trip!

When we arrived at Whangamata there was a skater lying down before the box jump with a broken arm, his lower arm was bent...not a pretty sight, when the ambulance arrived and moved his arm into the sling the bone stuck through the skin and let a bit of a blood splatter out. pretty gnarly...not the best thing to see first thing at the skatepark eh!

And once he was cleared away some riding went down and I took pictures of the box jump.

Josh has been riding for about 3 months and going through the paces...will probably be rippin' in a few months

Jed has two very swollen knees atm, he can't really walk but can still ride fine! 360






Jed dive bombing kids chilling in the most obvious place to chill . . .


Little kid was rippin' it up!!





Skater dude was killin' it....is always bizzare to see a skater actually landing stuff.





and now back to the programme . . .

Jed 3 x-up

Jed tuck no hander

then we drove some and decided to catch up with BIg wheels sam and stay at his place in Papamoa again. good times drankin' and listening to waves crash on the beach all night long. Thanks again for the place to stay and get rad sam! and your mums fish was badass!

Next day hit up the bike shop and the coffee shop and got jed his first ever kebab and got to the skatepark about 12. 5 hours after waking up. dullglglhhhh

Simon getting leggy

still gettin' leggy

kid getting gnarly well his mum didn't stop yelling at him

Josh whipppin on his tyre.

Oh also, thanks to the Jazz festival parking warden for reminding me that parking on yellow lines isn't correct. douchebag.

Simon & I saw a train! stoked!

so simon sent another txt message!

Pretty chill ride at the mt park, watching old war planes come in and Carl Cavangh was riding, was good to see that guy ripping again!

Jed ripping as always

carl always has interesting lines where ever he rides....heres a picture of him airing the bowl. haha.

cheers for the weekend...and thanks to jesus for dying and coming back as a Zombie so I can eat chocolate eggs and get drank at the beach! fuck yeah Jesus!

How could I forget, quote of the weekend well coming up a car on the motorway courtesy of Simon "Damn, that girl looks pretty hot" Rest of van "Ugh Simon, pretty sure that's a guy"



And just so you can have a sing-a-long :)



K-k-come on!

Fuck the goo goo dolls, they can suck my balls
They look like the dorks That hang out at the mall

Nelly can suck it, so can Dr. Dre
They can suck each other, just because they're gay
They can suck a dick, they can lick a sack
Everybody shout, heavy metals back!

Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal

Death to Papa Roach, Blink 182
All those fucking pussies sounds like doggy doo
Wearing baggy pants, spiking up their hair
They're not worth the crust on my underwear

Where is Def Leppard?
Where is Mötley Crüe?
Why does all my lyrics sound like doctor Seuss?

Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal

Kills those fuckin fuckheads
who program MTV
They can suck my ass with all the record companies

Death to Britney Spears, kill the little slut
Kill Madonna too, and then fuck her in the butt
Fuck Maria Carey, death to Sheryl Crow
They can kiss each other on their camel toe
50 Cent's a fag, so is Kanye West
shooting hot sperm on each other's chest

Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal
Death to all but metal
