Leaving on a jet plane! October 24, 2009 by Haimona Ngata (Freestyle BMX)

haimona-ngata-profile-clear-70-newSo just a real quick update! Im at Auckland International bout to head over to LA for a few weeks to get some decent riding time in with a few buddies, I spoke to my friend Rooftop the other day and he said we’re going to Mexico for some crazy contest! ha! so expect some pretty funny pics!

In other news I met Sarah Walker the other day, yes the olympic bmx rider, it was a lil bit weird, some friends said that I ride and do tricks, then she asked me where the closest foam pit was to learn backflips! ha! I found that a lil weird! anyways she gave me her business card, which was pretty crazy, it had all her sponsors along the bottom and we talked about that, I didnt really wanna tell her that I get hooked up as well, that would be just kinda too weird! ahahahahaha! anyways expect some updates, ahuhuh, from the States and Mexico! peas!

A new ride and the end of an era at Victoria Park! (with pics) September 29, 2009 by Haimona Ngata (Freestyle BMX)

haimona-ngata-profile-clear-70-newAhoy Hoy internet world!  So’s I just got a bloody DOOPPEEE new frame from Subrosa, it’s called the Pandora DTT!  DTT standing for double Top Tube!  Something a lil bit different; back in the day I owned quite a few DTT bike frames and they were awesome, but by the early 90’s they were slowly getting phased out of BMX, mostly because bike frames became alot more simple and weight concious.

Well fast forward to 2009 and Subrosa is the only company to bring back the DTT, and the bikes are made so much more lighter now, and I have to say it rides awesome! Great Timing cause I dropped it off at burgerfuel and a few days later I had a one of a kind Subrosa DTT with custom Burger Fuel paint job!  Super stoked!  It came out awesome and I gotta say a big thanks to the crew at Burger Fuel for pimpin my ride! AGAIN!! ahahahaha

I learnt the hard way! ha! I’m just stoked that I walked out of a and e with all my limbs intact, usually there’s a broken leg or arm or something like that, but today i just broke my face, ah wells!!

Interview with Haimona Ngata July 16, 2009 by Haimona Ngata (Freestyle BMX)

Haimona has been a Dew Ambassador since we started the program in NZ in 04 and is still out riding his bike regularly around the streets of Auckland. Here we chat quickly with him about how his dream life would pan out and what injuries he has received from his bike . . .

teamngata1NICKNAME: Haimona, ahahaha!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE TRICKS TO DO AND HAVE YOU INVENTED ANY OF YOUR OWN? hmmm, favourite trick is just staying on the bike! ahahahaha, don’t really have a fav trick, roasting a good quarter pipe is always a treat though!…

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM TRICK BE? Again, staying on the bike! ahahahahaha! dont have a dream trick, just being able to peddle my bike everyday is a dream come true.
