Paddy Gross update

One of the nicest and most humble people I know checks in!

“I am doing good over here in Portland and its bike season, so perfect to work in a bike shop and exhausting at the same time, I could use another pair of hands on my body. I’ve been riding heaps in the last couple months and we’re still filming for my next edit which is going to be out by the end of the summer. we’re taking our time with it to film quality stuff and because we have so many skateparks around here it’s worth it to get footage from heaps of different parks and spots.

I also had a photo shoot for a new camera lens called “baby lens” which is a crazy thing and i’ll send a photo of it as soon as I get one. I attached a random shot from riding Burnside park in the morning the other day and another one of riding this backyard mini which especially Clint and Bobby would love to play around with.

Other than working and riding I am going to start doing workshops with plenty of kids at this new indoor park that opened a couple months ago and I am looking forward to have fun with the kids and you know that if I tell them how to do a whip, they’re probably doing doubles in no time hahaha damn kids 🙂 well that was it, thanks for reading, have fun and be safe everyone! cheers, Paddy.”

Vote 1: Coffs Harbour new skate park

Shane Conlon has been working tirelessly for the past 5 years or more on getting a new skate park for Coffs Harbour & it’s very close now to becoming a reality. But they need all our help. There is an election there soon & the skate park has popped up as one of the election points of interest. We have to make sure the park is not swept away by other election promises.

Do your part so we all have an extra place to ride by voting for “Skate parks & other youth recreation” on the poll after clicking this link now.

“Yo! What’s up peeps?

I’ve been out on a mission lately to destroy spots and rack clips. It’s all been going pretty well up until I got broke off the other day but that’s just a miner setback. I’ve been spending most of my spare time out searching and me and the lads have been out on some epic missions putting in work.

Alot of these clips will be in my frame promo edit which I am working on and should be well worth the wait. Here’s a little taste of what’s been going down. I have a lot more photos to come so keep checking back. Enjoy…..”

Valvo update

Valvo sent through an update from Brazil where he tells us the weather has improved and he has been riding and filming hard. This bowl looks amazing with a perfect setting for photos. Thanks to Flavio Freire for the photos.

Brock and Liam in Melbourne

If you’ve been following us on Instagram or basically any social media outlet you would probably have noticed that Brock and Liam are in Melbourne. They came down for the Slay the Rails comp and have been staying a few extra days filming for the 2020 DVD along with a web video coming out in the coming weeks. So far so good!


Coppin’ It Sweet mannn…

Nuke & Millar were out filming on the weekend for the upcoming DVD from Stewart Munro – Coppin’ It Sweet. That rail that Nuke is doing a crooked on, is his first ever crooked grind. Not bad for a kid who only learnt to pedal a bike a short two years ago. Damn kids.


Jourdan Barba video

Good friend and team rider from the USA Jourdan Barba spent some time filming this with Davey Gunn over the past few months. Filmed by Davey Gunn, Edited by Cooper Brownlee.

Zac Miner is a beast!

A couple of days ago I drove through Canberra on my way home from Queensland. I spent the evening with Zac, we filmed a few things at Weston which included this downwhip in a line. Later that night we missioned it, lit up a spot and Zac did a crazy gap to feeble first try (thankfully). You will have to wait a little while until we finish filming his web video but I am hyped for it to be seen.
