Clouds Are Cool As Are Headbands :)

This Photo doesn't really represent how cool these clouds where, but then again the iphone doesn't take the best shot sorry, anyway sunsets up at Buller are pretty amazing

On a another note Ralph is growing his hair like crazy and has been hanging with a bunch of skiers lately in the park at Buller while he is teaching that down rail in the park a lesson. So he figured he try a little harder to fit in with his skier friends.

Snow season is in full swing now and yesterday we drove over 8 hours visting resorts and stores.
I'm already feeling it, "suck it up I hear you all say"

Two weeks without an Update , sorry Things have been a little hectic

So finally it started snowing up in the hills here in OZ.
So what does that mean, weekends away and lots of trips.
Here is a little photo update of the last couple of weeks

Here's the carters packing for opening weekend

Mansfield is the town located at the bottom of Mt Buller, here is Ralph and TC hanging downtown mansfield

Mike Metro rocked up for opening weekend in his Bear Suit from utah 100% Awesome

Opening weekend is always a good time to catch up with old friends, here is Bucky from Philip Island

Bourke street is the main run that was open, super fun hits and people dodging.

Chunk was up there having a ball, here he is with TC

More old friends , Troy and Jessica Grant ripping

Buller sunset

Adam Takach is one of my oldest skate friends from Melbourne, he had his whole family up there super cool family

Ralphs Took his girlfriend KAT (legend) up for her first time, it was good seeing him looking after her

On the sunday night Monk made the trip up, it was her first night away in a while, she was having the time of her life

Sunny weather isnt something we get to see that often here in oz so I thought i should take a shot with the phone, as I know some people that have never seen sun at Buller

I also made a trip up to NSW and visited stores and resorts here is the team getting ready at for our trip to Perisher

When we arrived at Perisher the weather looked great

Perisher had a cool little park, here is Chris STOKED, notice the weather coming in though

While at perisher I noticed this, which I thought was cool since our good friend Lars is from norway and secretly loves to ski

While in NSW we caught up with old friend Shirvo, still the same loving life

All in all a great start to our season and some fun riding already. Not much else to report, more updates soon for sure.

Kingpin Productions

Back in the Day Kingpin made the best snowboard movies ever.
They got me so stoked to go snowboarding and had a such a good vibe, cool skits and every up and coming rider in them.
Anyway someone reminded me today about their movies and I checked out what the director Whitey is up too now.
He is shooting photos making ads and generally being creative.
Whiteys fotos where a big part of my fave snow mag back in the day too, BLUNT mag. Take the time to check out his photo portfolio here

Anyway Here is a classic shot from one of his greatest movies The Warriors, it was an ad for Rev snowboards back in the day and a little skit of the "Dukes of Rev", Mitch Nelson, Jeremy Jones, Jp Walker and Timmy Ostler some of my fave riders ever. Search it out it is worth it for sure.

I have two copies on video if you cant find it on net :)
