Empire’s annual Melling Skate Comp took place a couple weekends ago, I shot a roll of black & white film and just got around to scanning it. Congrats to Brynn on first place in the Opens, taking home $400 cash with D Whatford coming in a close second, and Brad for...
The guys from Auckland’s Amazon Boardstore put on the Wellington section of the Biggest Game of S.K.A.T.E. competition this past weekend. Relapse riders AJ, Dylan, Fox and Brynn all skated, and Welly veteran Chris Wood took out first place. Cheers to the guys at Amazon Boardstore for putting on a sick event and afterparty. Here’s...
Kane Kid will do anything to avoid cleaning shit up. Including a heelflip over a pile of clothes in his hallway. Shot on Superia 400.
It’s always a pleasant surprise when I find an issue of Manual Magazine in my letterbox, and today was no exception. The new issue is full of ripping images and articles, plus Brynn has not one but two impressive photos amongst the pages as well. (Our upcoming full-length shall contain the video evidence of said tricks)....
All of this footage is over a year or two old, filmed on numerous different cameras by different people. It was just sitting there not being used so I put it together into this web part. A couple of bangers snuck in there from AJ O’Brien as well. Edit by Mike Lamb. Song is Deer...
A few raw clips of some lines filmed at Melling. Featuring Dylan and AJ. This may be the start of a regular post – got a few throwaway lines lurking in the hard drive.

A quick mess around clip filmed in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon mission to Paraparaumu, Kapiti Coast. (After quite a big Saturday night so please excuse the not so steady filming in parts). Featuring Dylan Whatford, AJ O’Brien, and a couple humourous maneuvers from Chris Retro of NVMBSKVLL.

Kane had a lot of recent and old footage that was filmed in Standard Definition. Since our upcoming video is going to be all HD, we decided to put this together.
A couple sequences I shot with Dylan in Porirua not so long ago. Tailside Bigspin and Five-O to switch Crooked grind. Kinda interesting watching em side by side like this.
Brynn Durham, Frontside Feeble grind, Photos: Mike Lamb Haven’t posted a sequence in a while – here’s Brynn Kid warmin up with a front feeble down this little beefer in the Hutt.
Kane Michalick, Five-0, Mt. Cook, Photos: Mike Lamb This ledge is pretty haggard. Kane was man enough to huck this Five-0 twice for dual angles, and then again for video footage.
OK so we’ve printed this colourway on Crewnecks before, but this is a first for it on tees. Cop one now at Empire or our Online Shop
Our boy AJ’s got this weeks Talk Turkey Tuesday over at MANUAL. You’ll be seeing a lot more from this dude!
Kane Michalick, Backside 180 I hope no one who cares too much (The Council) reads this. Kane found this door open to a gym/hall type place at an unused school in the Hutt. So he took me back there to shoot. We were there for a good couple of hours and thought it was safe...
