Bayzand and The Woodyard.

Mick was fortunate enough to hit up a nice looking backyard setup recently…

“The other day it was Canada day and I was lucky enough to get invited out to a BBQ Canada style at Ron Murcers house where he has an amazing skate park in his backyard called The Woodyard. The place is sooooo much fun and has lines for days. It was a really good turn out and the locals are amazing riders and even more amazing as people.

We had a dope sesh, super chill, lots of beers and lots of laughs were had. It was an amazing way to spend the day. Thanks so much to Ron for letting us hit up his backyard and all the locals for being super cool.”

Ryan and Ethika

Ryan features pretty hard in this well put together video for Ethika.

Day in California

Fat from Alli Sports hung out with us for a day whilst we were in California and this was the end result. A super fun day out in the sun.

Vans Demo

A couple weeks ago Ryan headed to Pennsylvania for a Vans demo and it looks like all the riders and the crowd enjoyed the day.

Cold nights in Canberra.

Zac shot s through an update from Canberra…

Hey all. Not much has been happening of late. It’s been hard to get motivated to ride in Canberra because it’s been freezing. You go for a ride it’s atleast -5, it’s so shit if you fall off! I’ve be rocking trackies whenever I ride, it’s the best feelin riding in them.

In other news I’m heading up to Brissy next week to film some more of my up and coming edit, be good to see all the Brissy crew again! It’s Millar’s birthday so I’m sure I’ll have him do some dance moves by the end of the night. I’ll hit ya’s up again with an update next week when I’m in Brisbane, hopefully have some photos of Millar dancing. Anyways talk to you all then.

Peta Shepherd checks in…

Peta Shepherd is over in Canada for a few months & she sent in a quick update. Read on below to see what she has been up too of late…

So far Canada has been awesome! I’ve just been riding heaps and sight seeing a little. Last week Kiera and Steven (Moxley) took me on a road trip up to Ottawa, it was a really fun time. Steven had a demo with Craz-E-Crew on Canada day, the 1st of July, and I was allowed to join in. They have a 9ft quarter and cool box jump. After dark we got to let off backyard fireworks, which I had never done before. These are just a couple of pics from the week – Peta.
