Last Night's Forum Movie Premier

Last night we ran a movie premier for Forums movie F..It. It went epic and was at a really cool venue that has quite a few of my favourite artists pieces on the wall, including Shepard F, Perks, The Serps, Chris Johanson etc. etc.
Anyway here is a couple of shots from the night.

Chris J did some of my fave decks with anti hero back in the day, here's a little piece he did for a great art show a few years ago.

Good dudes Chunk and Metro

And Tara, Rick and Cinnamon (maybe) up on the pop site

Sean Southwood, CFO

Our CFO Sean is a legend and He loves to ride and really has a go, not the typical CFO that Ive worked with that's for sure
He has decided to move on to be closer to the surf which is a shame as he will be really missed.
Here is a couple of epic shots of him having a go also a little movie that one of our dealers made not to long ago, you see him trying to ollie at the 29 second mark.

Southy you'll be missed !!

Over 10 years since I have seen this much water in this Dam

In the movie The Castle which is a Aussie fave thats for sure, their fave holiday place is Bonnie Doon. For the last 10 years it has been lacking water in this lower section thats for sure.
We got a bunch of rain and snow as of late and here is some shots from last weekend.
Apparently they have planted a tagged fish in there and if you catch it you win $50 grand, for Real.

No we didnt stop sorry about the blurr

Two weeks ago this was DIRT

Dam that Drought that's for sure

This leads to a true water melon headache thats for sure

And I guess this is why they really call it the Amazing race

This is the best you tube clip Ive seen in a long time

Hey lets travel 25 hours to vermont then come back again four days later

So I had to travel across to Vermont for work for a couple of quick meetings.
I never got used to the time difference and the weather was hot which didnt go well after being in the snowy hills pretty much for the last three weeks.
Luckily all the people over their rule, thanks for showing us a great time

Here is a little snapshot of the 3 and a half days

Japan meets Australia meets Vermont crew, good thai food thanks Japan

Kinda weird there was this Burrito bar right by where we always eat, weird how we have never seen it before

The Three International Amigos, Craig from Japan, Olav from Austria and Darren from Wales.

Burton took us all bowling, here is Katie and I's matching shoes

Our bowling Team, Billy (not actually on our team), Roberto, Kelly and Christine, we killed it

Roberto action

Winners are grinners

Sharon is all time here is her round of jello/jelly shots kinda like her fave juice "NOT OJ" which is one part oj, five parts vodka

Burke cleaned up and would go drink at bar wait to be called bowl a strike then head straight back to the bar

Katie and Pierre

Money was exchanging hands that's for sure

Mr Fidler rules and Darren is looking kinda serious maybe wondering where the lunch is

Burton front lawn in summer, really nice actually

Mexi food is always good even at the airport

See you soon VT.

Awesome snow at Thredbo, The MTV party their and some good international friends

Here is a little snapshot of a few days up at thredbo a little over a week ago for the MTV Burton snow jam slash party.

Xander and Chris worked their butts off to make the contest happen

MTV legend and Sollors one of the best Canadians around

I didn't take any shots riding as it was to good to stop three feet minimum and the Nug (my new board) slayed that pow i felt invincible

Party people Mat and Tiene

My fave judges arrived four hours late just in time to party and miss working at the contest :)
Mel and Tim

Wes and Claire, partying up a storm

Tim felt like something was hanging above his head

Koia was making new friends all over

Chunk, Brenna and some friend of theirs that fell over and acted like it was nothing

My fave DJS for sure

Great crew after shredding, Trines, Solway, Chunk, Sollors, ME and Charles

Coco stoked to be going back to Sydney to his fave coffee shop as Thredbo didn't quite cut it, Sollors had a hot date the next night with someone super special

Alpine way was an adventure on the way back, but my driver Chunk killed it
