Flemington Banks Jam

Cooper and the guys over at Focalpoint had an amazing jam down at the iconic Flemington Drains in Melbourne earlier this month and we were stoked to be apart of it all. This video is a great watch and some serious hammers go down! Marnold, Jack, Dean and Pete all have clips in there aswell. While you’re here go follow Focalpoint on Facebook.

Adelaide trip

Coops just got back from a filming trip in Adelaide, he has a heavy schedule this year for trips and although he spends alot of his time behind the lens he still gets out there in front of it at every chance possible. Keep an eye out for him all over the country clocking clips.

Sydney demo’s

Simon and Shane were just down in Sydney doing demo’s at the waterpark in Penrith where the rowing was held at the 2000 Olympics, the guys said it was a solid turnout and a great day.

Jourdan crooks

Devin Feil has a really dialed photogallery up on TCU and it includes this awesome photo of Jourdan. Make sure you check out the entire gallery for some images to get you stoked.

Adelaide jam

A few of us are in Adelaide right now and whilst here we popped into an awesome backyard jam being held by Angus Samson and the crew. They had an amazing setup and vibe going on. I snagged a couple quick shots of Peta and Jack just before it got to dark.

Jourdan Barba Index Ink video

Jourdan is always working on something! This all night web video shot by Larry Alvarado for Index ink is dope, plenty of good lines and at the end the guys tell you how you can win some Index merch which is an extra bonus.

Rampworx video

When we did the tour of parts of the UK last September we had a session at the famous Rampworx park in Liverpool. The place was amazing and we had a blast riding with everyone there. I spotted this video from the session online last night so figured I should share it with you guys. Along with our video from the entire trip.

Blake Butterfield Memorial Jam on this weekend…

This Sunday January 27th is the to day to hit up the park in Kempsey, NSW for a good day of riding, BBQ & hanging out with like minded riders. Should be a good one as always.

Peta Shepherd video

Peta recently tripped up to Rockhampton to hang out with her friends and whilst there she made this edit with her friend Natalya in the heat, looks like they had alot of fun.

Guettler keeping busy…

Ryan Guettler opted out to come back to Australia this summer like he usually does. Read on below as to what he has been up too of late…

I just wanted to send every one a monthly web update and let every one know I haven’t fallen off earth yet and why im in the cold America and not in sunny summer Australia right now. Main reason is because I want to take advantage of all the spots around me and ride as hard as I can. I really want 2013 to be the best year yet.

So far I’m on the right track I did a road trip to Phoenix in my RV if you didn’t get to see it check the video..

I’m happy to announce that we are doing a web series based around the RV and the next trip leaves this Thursday to San Francisco. I really pumped on this web series I’ll be doing 6 road trips with different riders kinda like road fools which was a video I loved to watch as a kid. The best thing about the trips is it brings out my best riding and doing 6 stops before the comp session starts is only going to push me in the best way possible.

Also just finished a Vans shoes web edit, which should drop soon. Pumped on the edit I want to show the trails ive been digging and riding most days. There near my house and in the edit I want to show what I get up to there most days.

Down Under Ground Sydney…

The Down Under Ground flatland event recently when down in Sydney on the weekend & by the reports all went really well with a good turn out as well. Simon O’Brien took the win & had a blast doing so. Thanks to everyone involved… we will always support Australian flatland where we can with events like this.

Here are a few words from the man himself…

I went up to Sydney for the DUG, a pitty about some rain, would have been more riding. But we had a great turn out and ride out at bondi, with people stoked on the event and a BBQ afterwards at Paul’s. A great summer comp.

Canberra life

Another hot day out in Canberra but we still had a pretty productive day but security guarda are a bit more clued on these days up here. Zac scored a hammer at this spot, here is the leftover shot.

More from Canberra…

Another day in the capital so we headed out to a bunch of spots, filmed some clips, got punctures, kicked out alot, crashed a bit and had cops watch us film a rail clip. Good times.
