“I have Been Back in New Zealand for about a month , Its been really good to be home ! I got in ..Pulled my Van out of the bushes and brushed it off then loaded it with bikes and surf boards and headed to Queenstown for the Wide open Distributors Product Launch weekend to Hang with the crew and film some clips and get some Photos
Queenstown is going off like a pork chop in the sun these days , The Skyine Gondola is open for bikes and there are some rad tracks to shred up there! Check out this little clip we made from the weekend.
After Product Launching it was a BIG OL roady to Hamilton (Close to Auckland) for the “ On Your Bike Expo” Me and Caleb from Spoke Magazine Built a cool Pump track for every on to cut laps on and also Hucked a few airs on the air bag and Caught up with some NZ bike industry gurus.
We called into Chris Beverland’s new front yard jumps and had a fun as session.
I always wanted to go the most northern tip of New Zealand (Cape Reinga) so we head as north as humanly possible to see what all the fuss was about.
The far North was pretty rad , we surfed alot and pulled the bikes out at a few cool spots and got some awesome pics
We are driving all the way back to Queenstown now which will be a pretty long drive ,but Im looking forward to setting up down there and getting some awesome riding done over the rest of the summer.”
