The Pow Wow Pond Ledges RollVic fundraiser was held down at Princes Park yesterday (another in Owen Parry’s line of World Mocking Series event names) and despite a gloomy looking Sunday (damn Melbourne) there was a great turnout. We also  learned about Danny’s frisbee skills, which happened to be aimed at Frenchman Zack DeBlaize for most of the day…

Finally got a chance to take some photos. Was good to get back into it and was the first outing since I got my camera back from repair. Owen should be doing a little writeup about the event shortly.

Thanks to Owen and RollVic for organising another chilled out event!

Update: The article’s been posted on emesce here.

Melton Skatemeet, January 2010

Robbie Pitts is back to organising regular skatemeets in Melbourne again. The first stop for January is Melton Skatepark. We had about 5-6 cars come out and was great to see everyone tearing the park up – Especially in the 30-something degree heat. We also headed down to Melton Reservoir. Epic views. Lots of concrete. One bad crash.

The Ring of Fire (See here on Google Maps) – A skatepark in the western suburbs of Melbourne, located in at the 234 Fun Galore complex (Fun City Go-karts place)

After you navigate the 3 flights of stairs you arrive at this pretty awesome kidney bowl – two pool ledges, wallride, nice coping and made of MDF – gentle to falls. The only downside, being up on the top floor of this old mill, is that the roof trusses are pretty damn close..better get your helmet on. The second floor also contains a smallish street setup, but if you come here..you’re here for level three.

The light was pretty horrible, and only having one flash at my disposal tonight I decided to bounce the flash off parts of the almost white roof – bigger light source for a less harsh, softer light. Didn’t end up working too badly either as I’m pretty happy with the way these shots came out. Im usually pretty easy going on my strobes typically using 1/16th and above – however as im bouncing the light here, needed to bump it up a bit.

You could argue Tom’s makio shouldn’t really make the cut due to part of his skate cut off from the table…But meh, I liked it.

The NZ brothers showing off their vert skills. Love the invert, something you rarely see these days. In fact, I’m still waiting a new wave of vert skaters to pop up..you’d think the amazing skills of the Yasutoko brothers would some sort of inspiration?! Who wouldn’t want to learn how to do a twister (360 double backflip)…
