After the recent trip down to Timaru for the Backflips Skate Comp, I snuck along to join a post comp jam down at Temuka Skate park. After spending the day behind the lens already, I got pretty lazy and ended up lying down and laxing out on the pyramid with a beer and my camera — and not really moving much.
I did however manage to catch these 4 gems… and also props to Zak McClean who stomped a nice treflip just as I was getting set up, sorry bro the frame I got looks shite!
Traveling is one of the coolest parts of being a photographer, even though it was only a couple of hours down the road, it was still a nice little mission to Timaru for the 2011 Backflips Movember Skate Jam.

Here’s a few of my favourite shots from the day, check out Backflip’s Facebook page for other 90-something!
Also worth a check is Ryan McCrae’s video from the day too!
A couple of weekends ago the Amazon crew threw on a pretty sweet game of SKATE in their new store in Northlands mall. The best of the best battled it out for over $3,000 worth of prizes, including one of the best challenges I think I’ve ever seen between James Kingston and Danny Yeoward.
Here’s a couple of my snaps, head over to the Manual website to see more, plus some great shots from Jake Darwen from the Wellington event.

A couple of weeks ago I trekked over to Zak Mclean’s place for a night shoot on his swish new backyard miniramp. Jordan McStay and Greymouth’s Izaak Cavert were there to help rip it up under the limited light from a van’s headlights on one end, and a trusty Dolphin torch on the other. Here’s what we got…
On our recent mini road trip to Oxford with Jordan Kidd I managed to catch a couple of sly shots of Zak Mckean, he’s been egging me on to see them, so here you go… enjoy!
