Mick Bayzand update.

Bayzand has been all over the place up north of late, here is the latest from Teddy.

Hey guys, it’s Mick again to let you know some more of what I’ve been up to. Kimberly and I sailed on a catamaran for a few days around the Whit Sundays. It was amazing. We woke up in the early hours of the morning to snorkel the reef. Underneath the surface the coral and fish were mind blowing. I’ve never seen so many crazy colours altogether. One day we even saw a whale breach the water, it was right out of a documentary. We got to go to White Haven beach. It’s by far the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen. We walked up to the lookout where you could see the water and sand swirl together down below like a painting. It was unreal. By night we got to drink with the others on board and the crew. Thanks to the Skipper and crew for making it such a great trip, something we’ll remember for a very long time.

Mick Bayzand – Ten Clips

We met up with Mick at his local park Prahran to film his ten clips, the park is just on the out skirts of Melbourne city and definitely has its own unique feel, interesting characters around all day long but as kinda sketchy it may seem from first glance, everyone was real cool and down with what we were doing.

Mick had previously filmed an edit at the same park a month or so before hand so he wanted to make sure he got some new lines dialed in and some different moves to what you may expect to see from him.

Filmers: Cooper Brownlee (fisheye) Sam Illman & Flagz (long lens)

Mick Bayzand trip update

Mick continues to run wild in the bushlands of northern Queensland…

Hey all! It’s Mick here letting you guys know what other adventures I’ve been up to. Kimberly and I drove into Byfield National State Forest just outside of Rockhampton. We lived in the rainforest fending for ourselves for a good while. I have to say, this was probably one of the best parts of the trip so far. We hiked along the rocks of the creek and got ourselves lost in the forest. I got to free climb some pretty cool rock faces before leading us through our own trails. We spent our nights by the campfire drinking goon, and I carved myself a couple tools for survival. We really got in touch with the more primitive sides of life. We chilled with a couple of crazy looking frogs, a bilby, and some other kind of marsupial my girlfriend thinks is said to be extinct. It was pretty amazing a part from having to shower out of breakfast bowls, but that’s all part of living in a rainforest. Stay tuned for our next adventures. Peace.

More from Mick…

Mick Bayzand sent in a quick email from his backpacking travels around Australia…

We went through Bundaberg today and had to stop at the Bundy Rum Distillery for Millar cause it’s his favourite drink. We wanted to get a shot with the Bear but he was hibernating so we got one with the giant bottle instead. This is what happens kids when you drink too many Bundys! Hope you enjoy Millar… I sure did.

Mick Bayzand checks in.

Mick is currently travelling around Australia, I will let him tell you the story though…

“Hey! This is Mick here checking in. After the DVD launch in Brissy I packed up my life in Melbourne and hit the road with my girlfriend to show her around Australia before she heads home to Canada. We rented a van to sleep, cook, and do pretty much everything in. First stop was Byron Bay where we explored the beautiful beach and hiked up to the lighthouse. I abandoned my shoes and became a barefoot bushman. We had mad adventures exploring the bush. We then kept moving until we arrived at the Glass House Mountains and spent the day at Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo. Turned out to be Bindi’s 13th birthday, so we got to see some crazy croc shows with the whole family. I even got a piece of her birthday cake! Next stop we came to Noosa where we explored the mangroves and the river by kayak. We spent a few hours on a deserted island where we hung out and I had a stab at spear fishing. We got out of there quickly after our car was broken into and made our way to Rainbow Beach. Now we’re here for a few days exploring the sand dunes and hiking through the National Parks. This is such a chill place I almost don’t want to leave. The plan is to head up the East Coast until Cairns. I’ll keep you posted with anymore wild adventures we come across. Peace.”

Mick Bayzand interview…

In conjunction with The Come Up we bring you a series of interviews with some of the team about their experiences filming for the DVD.

Starting today with Mick Bayzand there will be a new interview dropped each day over the next week leading up to the 16th of July. Hopefully you will get a bit of an insight into what went into the DVD & what to expect from the guys. The riding footage used in all these interviews is B roll footage that did not make the actual finished product.

Interview filmed & edited by Cooper Brownlee with additional footage filmed by Flagz.

The Colony DVD will be available worldwide from July 16th.

Myself, Zac and Mick drove down to Adelaide today/yesterday, Here for some unfinished filming business. We stopped into Little black Bike which is one of my favourite stores in Australia, so dialed! Matt and Jack hold down a good store so make sure you pop in if you ever come to Adelaide.

Royal BMX visit.

Myself, Marnold, Tom and Mick arrived in Perth yesterday and we went down to the local BMX store, Royal BMX and hung out for a few hours. None of us have been over here before and it was definately a treat to hang out with Ben and everyone down at the store. Thanks to everyone who came down, it’s awesome to see another legit BMX store in this country.
