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 first place in the under...
It’s been a long time since an update. Apologies, here’s an a photo of Fox pushin a long crooks through a ledge in Eastbourne. That should tie the site over for another couple of months.
AJ has a Good As in the new issue of Manual Magazine, go pick one up to peep his feature. Here’s another photo from the same session. Photos: Mike Lamb Frontside Noseslide Frontside 180 Nosegrind
First of all congratulations to Brynn for taking yesterday’s Drop Deep Skate Comp in three sections – 1st place U16′s, Best Trick and Overall Skater of the Day. Kid made bank for one day’s skating! After the comp we headed back to Petone, skated the mini for a bit and got a couple quick photos....
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...

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.

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...
Relapse rider Dylan Whatford had 2011′s first Talk Turkey Tuesday over at Manual this week – featuring photos I shot with him over the last few months.
Here’s a couple flicks from Kingpin‘s Kick Push East Coast skate comp that was held in Gisbourne last week. Head over to Manual to check out the results and more photos.

Here’s a flick from the end of last year. Jade Michalick hucking a frontside 180 down a hefty gap. I gotta admit the photo doesn’t quite do it justice – you have to see it in person to gauge the length of it.
