Long nights.

Mick and I spent yesterday driving to Canberra which is about a nine hour drive for us then met up with Zac and Jacko and hit up a few spots. Originally we planned to leave Canberra at 9pm to drive the three hours to Sydney to stay there the night but we ended up lighting this spot up so Mick could get a real nice clip, it may have taken an hour and a half but it was worth it! We arrived in Sydney about 2am, it was a long day.

Summer Jam… this weekend

Don’t forget the Summer Jam at Woodridge skatepark this Saturday. A good amount of the team will in town for this one, should be a fun time for all.
