Fun Times

So after another awesome day of snowboarding on saturday at Mt Buller , I(SC) talked everyone into going down to the river which is about 5 mins walk from the cabin we stay at in the mountains. If anyone remembers our save the date wedding invite the photo was taken at this location. So anyway the river runs directly down from the hill, so it is melted snow cold as you could ever imagine. I (sc) went in up to my knees and had everyone freaking out and i jumped out pretty quickly the water was so close to freezing.

Ralph bet a dinner that i wouldnt go in so i jumped in much to TC's freaking out, it was cold let me tell you. Two late coming friends arrived to my screams and of course Late comer LArs jumped straight in no questions, so then did alex the russian. Ralph swore he would never go in but after all three of us did he had no choice and we honestly thought he was going to drown.
Check the photos for the hilarity that was.

Yay Sawmill Settlement !!!!

Friday Night Video Premier

So Our Friends at POP threw a video premier for The new Transworld Snowboard movie "These Days" which was quite special as our friend Robbie Walker has closing part which in the snowboard world is a really big deal, the final part of either a skateboard or snowboard movie is without doubt reserved for the banger or best part. Second to that is the opening part, you know like an essay intro gets you going and the conclusion finishes everything off.

The Week That WAS

So this week started off of course at Mt Buller, which was as usual pretty amazing, sunny days both days but unfortunately My(SC) knee is still sore from slipping on some grease while skateboarding out from of our new office which absolutely rules. Heres a shot of part of it, which i posted as who else would leave two good jackets in melbourne since the opening weekend in june but COCO.

Sydney, Buller and Broken Windows

So Im guessing Photos get people coming back here, so heres a whole heap from last week. TC had a big week at work with lots of publicity on the company she works for. I on the other hand travelled a bunch last week, monday was fall creek, tuesday melbourne, wednesday/thursday and friday morning where sydney and friday night both TC and I got to go to Buller to catch up with friends who sometimes go by the gang name of Team Food.
Enjoy the week that was.

Heres SCs last night in sydney last week, after meeting Darrens friend Bill in sydney for a drink we ended up chilling and eating with some of our mates travelling back to USA.
Above shot clockwise includes Darren, Bill, Blotto, Hooper, Keegan (hard to see) and Jeremy, fun times in china town.

Team Food HQ, after a big day of riding everyone chilled at the Cabin, clockwise Rory aka Dr Jumps, rorys mate simon, Ralph and TC

Pretending we where at Cafe Rio Ralph TC and Metro all pretended to like the mexican feast I Cooked

So We where loading up Ralphs truck with all his demo boards when i proceeded to ask you sure thats ok resting them on the truck, "Yeah the bars hold them up no worries" Ralph said as i went inside to get a jacket as it was raining, as i came back outside i got to see one smashed window where the board bag fell through the window, lucky for Ralph we have lots of corona boxes and stickers. And no my jacket isnt too long

Ralph smiling, I still do not know how he was smiling right now, every time he closed the door (slammed) more glass fell out into his car. Oh yeah im still getting glass out of my hand.

We drove into town to eat pies and fix the window good and proper, since the forum stickers although great wherent doing the job.

Ralph has been wanting to get his windows tinted into the "darkest legal tint" heres a cheap way to do it.

Overall A great Week, snowboarding at both Falls and Buller eating food and chilling with great friends Life is Good.
