Trying to get ourselves sorted and organised for a skate weekend away is a nightmare in logistics. It’s like herding cats, but the cats in zero gravity and there are biscuits floating everywhere to distract them.
We finally got our shit together and made some loose plans, stocked up the chilly bins and leaned heavily on Bristol Nick to take care of our infrastructure and resources. He stepped up to the plate superbly.
We were all having such a great time that we didn’t take heaps of photos. Duncan (@ewigram) and Tom Peden (@tommypeden) and I pooled our photos. Make sure you follow them on insta if you don’t already. Tom was injured, hence why there are no handsome back tail photos.
I won’t babble on as there is a load of photos to get through.
First stop, the underrated Chelsea. Now with shade sails
Heaps of rad stuff happened, and my meh grind on the skinny extension. Photo @ewigram
Then we had a mellow session at Mt Eliza under lights, cooked up, drank up and camped next to the bowl.
After a 6:30am swim we had a leg stretcher. Mudguts barefoot barging
And a decent length backside lipslide into the hip
Heckle area warmed up before we moved on
The heckling continued
Pearcedale is so fun, yet snaps everyone off. Everytime. Jesse smiths
Mudguts got loose
Duncan lapped one. @tommypeden photo. Cracker of a shot!
@ewigram shot these next four bangers. Cunnaz Liened one as a gnarly transfer
Gez rocked @ewigram photo
Dan slid one through the tight corner. @ewigram photo
Mudguts rolled into the harshness @ewigram photo
We then hit a little park called Sommerton. Cunnaz always wants moar Slayer
Jesse has the best long as five-0 to fakies
And switch 5-0’s
Chris step off finger flip
Ducky worked super hard to clear this gap. He had it in him, but didn’t get it. So damn close!
He got retribution with this nosegrind pop out. @tommypeden photo
Mudguts played all weekend. Crail
Got the gap in his efforts to set a fire under Ducky. They amped each other up
We set off for the paradise that is Balnarring
The flat bank triangle is rad. Dan with a backside heelflip @tommypeden photo
Cunnaz with a kicky to fakie @tommypeden photo
I did a no-comply @tommypeden photo
and a tail block. @tommypeden photo
Chris lapped a front rock proper @ewigram photo
As did Bristol @tommypeden photo
Mudguts nosegrab. First and last man rolling for the 12+ hour day. @tommypeden photo
Duncan with a switch frontside shuv @tommypeden photo
Punkpete shut it down with this banger over the gap
And at the wee hours of the morning we polished off the last of the whiskey and hit the hay @tommypeden photo
Cheers for the great times gents!
