Winter Games Mate.

The Winter Games are here in New Zealand. The Slopestyle for snowboarding is tomorrow. Skiing is today. We went up for a play yesterday but due to flat light this iPhone footage was about as productive as the day got. Looking forward to it.

August upon us - Cherry Blossoms too.

I have stolen this photo from my friend Stef's blog. The only appropriate caption here is FREEDOM.

The last few weeks have been rad! August has brought some sporadic weather to The Southern Lakes. The result has been snowy mornings and FUN afternoons! The New Zealand Open has just come to a close. I came 21st in the Slopestyle. The finals for both Slopestyle and Halfpipe saw snowboarding go to a new level. I won the Remarkables Slopestyle on Saturday. The park up there is a good time. Coronet Peak has also been good in recent weeks -see Diaries Downunder 3 below. We also went to a pilot for a new show called 'The Match'. We had fun with a taser.


Also, here are some photos that I have been meaning to put on here in the last few weeks.
The Remarkables.

Jordan smiles and poses nicely doesn't he.

The view from Cardrona after Semi Finals at the New Zealand Open.

Hiroki tumbled down the stairs at The Remarkables Slopestyle. He carried on riding, did his runs then got fixed up at the end of the day.

Skype has claimed another victim.

The audio man doing the hokey tokey as Possum goes in for a tickle.

Cherry blossoms in August.

Jeremy Thorns put some of his illest images onto canvas. He has some good shit!

Catching Air.

We went up to Coronet Peak today and caught some air filming for Episode 3 of Diaries Downunder.
Here are some photos I have taken in recent weeks.

A waterfall on the track towards Jack's Point.
I pulled out of the skatepark the other day and this caught my eye. I was lured to the Kingsgate Hotel to get this shot.
Browner and Dutty sparring.
We ate this in the spa the other day.
