Liam Marshall checks in…

New Zealand flow rider Liam Marshall sent us through an update from the past couple of months…

So I started the year off with a nice chill down in Queenstown with a couple of good mates. We went and stayed at the Redbull house, cheers to Jaden Leeming and the guys at redbull NZ for hooking us up, we tripped around a little bit and went around to Wanaka one day to film some clips and just see what the South Island had to offer. Couple of days later we meet up with photographer Miles Holden and went to this small little town of Glenorchy which had some great views and had a sweet little chill park, there was a sweet quarter to session so we caught a few shots on that.
We made a little chill edit of our times down there, which you can watch here.

I’ve also been doing a couple of demos on a box jump lately around Auckland city just for Auckland council which has been good fun…

This footage is from all around Australia and Vancouver Canada. Thanks to Kym Grosser and Sam Lowe for the additional footage.
