Big Day, Baw Baw and skate all in one day !!!!

So Weds we had to go to melbournes closest resort Mt. Baw Baw for a meeting or two.
We decided to take the new way since it was supposedly had a lot less sharp turns and was an easier drive. It actually was easier but with snow i think a 4 wheel drive might be needed.

We were worried we might get lost luckily we found this sign. Bushfire damage for sure


Anyway while at baw baw we decided to check out some of thier new features as you will see below
Here is Gavin from Cactus Black watering the garden, great new feature looks really fun to hit nice and wide and stable


Another angle of this beast, Gav and Jamie from Cactus always up for a good time


Gap rail also looks fun, not much snow needed to ride this thats for sure


The old wall ride moved onto a transitioned platform will be so FUN


Im not sure about this, hopefully they shorten it, as it is pretty high shoots you up and then onto flat and kids are going to get worked on it.


New Wall ride down bottom as you get on pomas, at Cactus Black park super fun


Once back in mebourne office ramp had session in full force.
Even nitty was skating, ripping too


Check the line up, Ralph smith


Griffo from mordys dropped by


Tc and Rick Baker Chilling


Brooksy and a swell bo


Rick got up and shredded, good to see you skating rick

Sunday Mothers Day pool mission

What better way to spend mothers day than empty a pool and have a little skate. Good old mark knew someone who knew someone who had a pool that had a little water in it and it was skateable so the source said.
Off we went and low and behold there was a pool it was skateable and there was not to much work to be done. Luckily enough the house owners had a pump in there for us and all we reallt had to clean was, some bottle, a empty keg and some other junk.
Two hours later we where ready and along comes Ralph hungover as ever ready to be sick but still keen to skate.

Ever rocked up to a pool before where the owners who have never ever set foot on a skateboard have a pump ready for you to go, Thanks guys


Let then Cleaning Begin


Home owner chilling while we clean


Mark had a couple of falls


Before he started ripping


Being hungover doesn't worry Ralph


Thanks Mark
