From the Vault.

An oldie but a goodie from Mick Bayzand, this is almost four years old now, back when Mick was living back in Vancouver. So many good rail hammers in this.

Adelaide update #2

Myself and Mick have been having a blast the last few days in Adelaide along with some other friends we have been searching alot which has had its ups and downs but all in all the trip is going good. Filming a plenty for up and coming web videos.

On the road

Mick and I are in Adelaide right now filming for some up and coming web videos. Dodging the rain was the challenge on the first day, hopefully we get some better weather the next few days.

The Package #4

Vans / Colony Adelaide trip video

Back in early December of last year, we spent five days in Adelaide, South Australia riding a bunch of spots along with a few parks with the locals and this is the end result.

This was all to promote the up coming Vans / Colony shoe collaboration collection being released worldwide, in March this year.

Filmed by: Clint Millar, Cooper Brownlee, Ryan Guettler, Mick Bayzand, Tom Stretton and Zac Miner.

Edited by Cooper Brownlee.

Hiding from the rain.

The weather has turned bad up here in Brisbane so we have been confined to undercover spots. Mick slinging over a pool table yesterday.

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.


Mick has been putting in work of late filming for some web video projects, we got a real nice line filmed at this spot. Myself and Mick start the long drive to Brisbane tomorrow via Canberra and Sydney so we will keep you all updated on the random happenings from that.

Worth another watch…

Ryan Guettler’s new frame, The Living is available in 20.8″, 21″ & 21.25″ TT & is all round frame for all types of riding styles.

The Sweet Tooth V2 is a revised version of Alex Hiam’s signature frame & comes in either 19.8″ & 20.25″ TT. It’s designed for smaller riders who want a responsive frame for progressive riding.

Lastly but certainly not least is Mick Bayzand’s new Teddy V2 frame. It’s a taller frame built to handle anything Mick (or you) can throw at it. Ready to bomb any rail in sight right out of the box.

Bayzand update

Mick sent through an update about his recent travels in the West…

I’ve been lucky enough to the have been invited to do some box jump demos at the Perth Royal Show for 8 days and 8 nights. It was a really fun time and the demos were sick not to mention the amazing fire works display.

I just want to thank Shaun Jarvis from Freestyle Now for hooking this up and all the amazing people I met and rode with for making it such an enjoyable experience.

Now I am traveling all around Perth doing lots of coaching clinics, demos and judging lots of comps so if your in the area come have a shred with me.

Mick gives us the latest on his trip….

Hey, it’s Mick again! Kimberly and I just came out of the rainforest in Paluma Range National Park. They call it “the village in the clouds,” and it sure was. We drove up a winding road forever to get to the top of the jungle. We hiked along the creek bed at Crystal Creek jumping over boulders and loosing ourselves further into the jungle. I went off on my own at one point and nearly stepped on a 6m long python! This thing could’ve swallowed a cow whole. I’ve never ran down a waterfall so quick in my life. Kimberly says it’s the first time she’s ever heard me scream. The river itself was the most amazing swimming whole I’ve swam in. The water was freezing, but beautiful. You came out feeling so refreshed. I swam around the rapids for ages. Then we hiked through some pretty dense jungle until we came across a set of some even bigger waterfalls. I went off on my own and followed the rocks nearly to the bottom of the mountain. That was a real adventure. I nearly died a couple of times crossing falling trees and leaping across the stones. I felt like a little kid again getting myself into trouble and finding my way out. It was a crazy adventure to say the least..
