I am so stoked with it especially considering it was all shot in 2 rides.

After flying back from Qtown I set off on a half day packed full of errands; picking up banners, packing whatever clean clothes I could find, grabbing material for the rail that was yet to be completed, etc… and then hitched a ride down to lake Karapiro.
Once I got there I set off on making progress on the rail, after getting it all lined up and the material ready to be cut I discovered that some of the tools were not fully operational.. So with the help of a few friends we put the Eco-decking on the top surface of the rail, by that time is was well dark and we were getting eaten alive by mosquitos so we left the rest for the next day.. The rail made it in the water in time for the open mens heats that afternoon thanks to a lot of help from many people with building and lifting it into the water… Thanks again to you all!
Due to the fact that I am out of action due to a knee injury I have taken on the MC roll for the Nationals and other events.. I had a great time on the mic but as you can imagine it was extremely frustrating watching from the sidelines.
Late on Sunday night I picked up my good friend, photographer and videographer, Josh Robinson (aka. Carnie) from the airport. Early Monday morning we jumped on a flight down to Queenstown where we met up with the star of the show Jeff Weatherall and Fuel TV videographer Neil Goss and started our missions.
We started by driving up to the top of the Remarkables where we did some lifestyle filming, from there we headed over the Crown Ranges to Wanaka where we met up with Jeff’s mate Tahl who took us out to a private, man-made, lake which is stacked with sick rails, the lake is actually shaped like a dick so it is appropriately named ‘Dick Park’. Jeff sessioned the rails for a few hours while I drove the ski and the boys made with the photo and video. It was bloody Freezing!!! Im kinda glad I was not riding cos I was so chilly just from driving the ski.
After we got done filming we went out for pizza with a few friends. From there we went back to the farm for some good old rabbit hunting, we got all suited up in out warm hunting gear and went at it.. We were shooting from the back of a buggy as it raced across the farm paddocks, two of us shooting with semi automatic 12 gage shotguns, while the others were spotlighting and filming. We ended up shooting over 30 cute little fluffy bunnys.
Tomorrow we are off up to lake Tekapo to try and get some more stuff done. Then back up to Auckland and straight down to Lake Karapiro for the NZ nationals.
Last week I had the task of building the slider for the NZ Nationals which are on this weekend. Thanks to Jesse and his little brother Levi for helping out and also to Ki from M.I.A and Mike Findlay for helping out by supplying some tools to make it possible.
See you all at Hora Hora Domain, at lake Karapiro this weekend.
